Fail Phrase Repetition


29 of the 211 total reviews for this product use substantial repetitive phrases between them. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 3.2 while reviews without substantial repetitive phrases rated this product an average of 4.2. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Warn Rating Trend

  • 9%
  • Created over 5 days

We counted 211 reviews for this product over the span of 1,615 days, an average of 0.1 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 2 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 5 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 18 reviews were created on just 5 days. Although any days with a larger number of reviews than expected is suspicious, these reviews do not appear to have a significant impact on the overall rating.
