Spotting a fake review

Recommended Posts

4/5 mainly by eliminating the hyperbole.

 

As with one of the previous posters I try to focus on the negative reviews and have a look at why the review was negative, especially when dealing with accommodation. With respect to audio I usually come here. Having spent a few years on the forum you get a bit of an idea of what people like in their equipment, the biased, the balanced etc.

5/5 for me, but I'm a very suspicious bugger so eking out BS comes naturally...! My nerve-endings start oscillating and my heart beats in 5/4. 'Take Five' starts up in my frontal lobe, sounding very good actually, better than mp3...

 

I get the same feeling reading most reviews in hi-🤓fi magazines.

It's not as easy to spot fake reviews as one assumes. I was sucked in by a very good fake review of an ice cream machine. The machine went kaput after 2 weeks. I was offered a return but for $99 I couldn't be bothered. It was garbage but boy did the review have one believe it was a fantastic deal.

I tried an alternate way of doing the test, I didn't read any of them and just clicked away. 

I got 3/5
