Never-Verified Reviewers


5 of the 24 reviewers have never written a verified purchase review. While this is more Never-Verified Reviewers than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Never-Verified Reviewers and reviewers who have written at least one verified purchase review isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Take-Back Reviewers
