Fail Rating Trend
- Created over 11 days
We counted 667 reviews for this product over the span of 3,655 days, an average of 0.2 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 3 or fewer reviews on any given day.
However, we see the following 11 days exceeding this threshold:
Fail Suspicious Reviewers
17 of the 667 reviewers have only reviewed this product. The One-Hit Wonders have rated this product an average of 3.0 while the reviewers who have posted more than one review have rated this product an average of 4.1. 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.
109 of the 667 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 Phrase Repetition
Common Phrases in Reviews:
Show MoreShow Less
48 of the 667 total reviews for this product use substantial repetitive phrases between them. These reviewers have rated this product an average of 4.8 while reviews without substantial repetitive phrases rated this product an average of 4.0. 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 Reviewer Participation

We see the following 1 participation group with a statistically significant greater concentration than what we'd expect to see:
Warn Deleted Reviews
We discovered a total of 1 deleted review for this product, with an average rating of 1. 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.
