Analysis Details


Fail Suspicious Reviewers

Take-Back Reviewers


1,681 of the 10,286 reviewers have had at least one of their past reviews for another product deleted. This is an excessively large percentage of Take-Back Reviewers which may indicate unnatural reviews.

Fail Reviewer Ease
The ease score is the average rating for all reviews that a given reviewer submits. The average ease score for reviewers of this product is 4.4, while the average ease score for reviewers in this category is 4.4. 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.

Fail Word Count Comparison

  • 72%
  • Have an overrepresented word count

In the graph above, we can see the distribution of review word counts for this product and the expected distribution for this category. We see the following 2 groups with a statistically significant greater concentration than what we'd expect to see:In total, we found that 7,445 reviews (or 72%) are within an overrepresented word count group. These reviews have rated this product an average of 4.8, while all other reviews have rated this product an average of 4.5.

Fail Skewed Helpfulness
We examined the average net helpfulness score of negative reviews against the average net helpfulness score of positive reviews. The net helpfulness score is the number of times a review has been marked as helpful minus the number of times a review has been marked as unhelpful. We found that the negative reviews had an average net helpfulness score of -0.4 while the positive reviews had an average net helpfulness score of -0.0. Based on our statistical modeling, this discrepancy is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, but possibly due to influence of unnatural voting patterns.

Warn Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 119 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 4.8. Even though deleted reviews don't affect the average rating, the fact that action was taken to delete reviews raises some red flags about the integrity of the reviews for the product as whole.

Warn Brand Repeats

Brand Repeaters


2,596 of the 10,286 reviewers have reviewed other products for this brand. While this is more Brand Repeaters than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Brand Repeaters and non-repeaters isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.
