Analysis Details

Note: While Amazon claims 909 reviews, we counted 1,305 available on their site.

Fail Brand Repeats

Brand Repeaters


348 of the 1,305 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.

Brand Loyalists


64 of the 1,305 reviewers have reviewed multiple products but half or more of their reviews are for this brand. This is an excessively large percentage of Brand Loyalists which may indicate unnatural reviews.

Fail Suspicious Reviewers

Never-Verified Reviewers


29 of the 1,305 reviewers have never written a verified purchase review. The Never-Verified Reviewers have rated this product an average of 3.5 while the reviewers who have written at least one verified purchase review rated this product an average of 4.3. 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.

Take-Back Reviewers

The Take-Back Reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.5 while the reviewers who don't have any deleted reviews in their history have 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.

Fail Overlapping Review History

305 of the 1,305 reviewers have substantial overlapping product review history. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.5 while the reviewers who have a more unique product review history rated this product an average of 4.3.

Warn Deleted Reviews
