When you are looking at items, how much do you consider the reviews? Say you were looking at an item that is rated 4.5 stars. Sounds pretty good, eh? Then you go to the actual reviews. Almost 10% one star. The one star reviews are all gloom and doom about the product. And many of them are recent, within the last two or three months. I'm talking about an item that has a substantial number of reviews, 200 or more. I did the math and Amazon does not play any shenanigans with their reviews. If you divide the number of reviews by the individual star ratings, Amazon uses the actual earned rating for its overall ratings. So, you have an item with 200 ratings and 20 people have had really bad problems recently but everyone else says its wonderful, what would you do? I've seen this time and time again and never know what to do.
