This is not a rant, just a little story. I bought an item on Amazon because it had good reviews. When I received it, it was hogwash. Only a couple of people left real reviews about the quality of the product. One of them wrote something like: "I don't know what this reviewers are smoking, but this product quality is horrible." I laughed and told myself: "I would like to know too what they are smoking because no matter how you look at it, this isn't a good product in the line." I got fooled by the good reviews because those who left critical reviews didn't specified what made the product bad. They just said it was bad. I thought that they just got a bad apple and that's why they said what they said. I was wrong. The product was indeed of bad quality. Plus, the amount of critical reviews were the minority. The product had like 4.5 stars overall. So what do I do? I enter and leave a critical review, giving very specific details of what made the product bad. I included layman words as well as technicalities on where the product fails. Expecting it will help someone in the future. Later I learned that some people get paid to write good reviews. I should have known that, but I didn't. Now I know. I think that those who leave critical reviews should give more details because just saying that the product is bad or that it broke doesn't help much. Neither does when they write in a ranting tone as it is perceived as negative and ignored. The internet. That one place where believing the majority can lead to unexpected results. So, do you trust online reviews?
