Actually, whilst there are some / many fake reviews not all of us are into that, I took advantage of cheap & free myself (albeit selectively) I was in the top 1000 for reviews anyway, some of us bother to do as good as / more than amazons own select reviewers! Incidentally I used to put the option to the reviewer that it was honest or not at all, I would send them copy of my reviews (some 1500 word reviews for instance) on tech I enjoyed, the stipulation was that if I deemed the item rubbish they could opt not to have the review published, simple as that, & yes I reported those who insisted on 5 stars when whining that they wanted more, ..fo MPow it was pretty easy to do 4 stars upward, & I used to test out the customer service & rate that also based on my enquiry / requirements met ....do you still consider anything I did as "fake"!? Fake review algorithms are nowhere near perfect, however the amount of 2 -25 word "reviews" that "gimme morons" used made them stand out more often than not, as do the dates, however I used to turn in a review within 14 days, some were way easier than others to break down & analyse.. especially if it is your interest already (torches, batteries, solar etc).
Be aware that these things (and virtually all other unbranded Chinese-made goods on Amazon) are polluted with fake 5-star reviews. Sellers offer these products - i.e. smaller, lower-value products - for free in exchange for positive reviews. The fake reviews still have Amazon's "Verified Purchase" label because the seller refunds the purchase after you've bought it. Make sure to run anything you buy on Amazon through a website like www.fakespot.com or www.reviewmeta.com. P.S. Anyone tempted to write fake reviews like this, Amazon will almost certainly close your account and ban you.
damn... missed those to (fierce) now £22 That's the old ones I've got I think.. still tempting at normal price (flirt)
