Latest reviews

  • (2020-01-13) Craig Shannon: My understanding of the intent of this add-on is to identify duplicate/identical reviews. So when i see a product has 2500+ reviews, and the add-on grades it and F - I know most are fake/duplicate reviews. This add-on has nothing to do with the quality of the product itself. It's a litmus test for the verbiage in the reviews themselves.
  • (2020-01-10) Scott Elsasser: I agree with other reviewers, the majority of negative reviews are for reasons not relating to the extension performing the job it is designed to do. It's unfortunate there is no easy way to tell how accurate it is, but in my experience it has steered me to great products. I love being able to open an entire page of search results and see the ratings on all of them.
  • (2020-01-07) Richard H: This app is not accurate. I buy a lot on Amazon and I am also an Amazon seller. I filter through reviews just like anyone else trying to decipher the quality of a product. I wish this app worked but it doesn't. I can easily test the accuracy of the app on my own products since I have never paid anyone or solicited for a review on any of my products ever. on Amazon. All verified completely honest reviews yet some of the products score as an F and others as an A. So disappointed, if I knew it worked I'd sure use this but obviously this app is useless.
  • (2020-01-06) Shirley Wong: I don't know how it runs, because the result is very weird.
  • (2020-01-03) Otoro: If you're going to claim that it only works with the latest version of chrome, you should probably verify that, considering the extension is all but broken is in the latest chrome (Version 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)). You can manually click the extension button when on the page, but the embedding for amazon browsing as well as amazon product pages is completely broken.
  • (2020-01-03) Szymon Krzemiński: As a seller I no longer support Fakespot. In the beginning, Fakespot correctly attirbuted grade A to my listing (organic reviews only). As it gained success, it's been under a heavy attack of fake 1-star reviews (20+ within 2 weeks). With that, Fakespot's rating dropped to F. The way it looks like from the customer's standpoint is that not only the listing's rating dropped but it also lost its credibility. UPDATE: I've just reanalyzed the data and it switched back to A. I've raised my rating to 2/5, but decided to keep it low as I've never heard from Fakespot's customer support about the issue, despite the fact I've raised the concern with them directly. I believe there may be more sellers affected by this glitch. Fakespot, it's high time you also cared about the wellbeing of sellers, not just the customers.
  • (2020-01-03) Kyle Smaagard: Useful on amazon but injects ads into Google search results.
  • (2019-12-28) Manu MB: Todos los enlaces de Amazon que voy a revisar son inválidos (según la extensión). Básicamente, no funciona.
  • (2019-12-25) فلان الفلاني: غير دقيقه لكنه يعطي فكره عامه وسريعه عن صحة تقيم المنتجات في امازون لكن لايعتمد عليه لانه غير دقيق تماماً
  • (2019-12-23) Natalie Rose: I've been loving this extension but lately it's been kind of wonky. Even when I installed and reinstalled, it still doesn't always show the rating right away. Also, an item I got kept changing from an A to an F rating. I think there are some bugs they might need to patch.
  • (2019-12-20) Aileen lee: This evaluation is inaccurate
  • (2019-12-07) Rob M: does not work. click "analyze this page" and it says it can't and gives me a list of pages it works on...including amazon, which is the only page i am trying to use it for.
  • (2019-12-02) Peter Straka: Does not work on EU amazon at all. I did some spot test on amazon.com... all looks like fake reviews even ones which are clearly not (such as simple Samsung SD card). Sorry, but not useful adds. And if it works... it means that all reviews are fake and then no need such as adds.
  • (2019-11-21) Aosom Product: This rating system is absolutely not accurate nor helpful. I have seen this give A ratings to obviously fraudulent listings. 35 five star reviews on an office chair listing that has been live for less than a month and with a very poor BSR history and relatively high sale price is just impossible.
  • (2019-11-10) Ruth Nigh: Read about this tool in AARP and tried it out on an Amazon purchase I had made 5 months ago. It analyzed the product and gave the reviews an "F" rating. Which is exactly the experience I had with this POS product. I love fakespot.com and will be using it frequently to prevent bad purchases in the future!
  • (2019-11-06) David Culbertson: Awful. Little to no intelligence in the product. Everything comes up as a 1-2 star rating, despite detailed verified purchases with detailed reviews and photos. And you have to scan each item, some of them taking minutes to complete. Cool concept that is either infeasible to deliver or just poorly executed.
  • (2019-10-22) Bogdan Irimia: BAd bad bad plugin. Does not to even by far. I checked genuine comments on sandisk and other big companies which I know they are good products...and it says fake reviews there....you should not use it ever. They also collect data. The owners seem to also be very rude.
  • (2019-10-19) Dan Moses: I like the service, and used it quite a bit manually before installing the extension today. I found it interesting that the extension has just over 3/5 stars -- which usually discourages me with products on Amazon, because that means a lot of people bought it and didn't like it enough that they left a bad review -- but for apps I'm more open to assuming that bad reviews come from bugs, updates to the underlying software, people not understanding, etc. And as I read through the reviews, I got to thinking -- we also need a reverse version of Fakespot, to filter out the negative reviews that are clearly user error... Even if it was just a crowd-sourced app, like RES for Reddit, or banlists on video games for known hackers -- where people could tag reviews that are low because the reviewer: (a) doesn't understand the purpose of the app/product; (b) didn't read the description of the product; (c) were accidentally shipped the wrong product; and/or (d) gave a negative rating because the app/product didn't fit their specific needs. Several of the reviews I just read on the first page (currently -- not sure what algorithm is putting them there) fall under category (a), where they're complaining about the Fakespot grade not necessarily reflecting product quality. And I'm adapting this review from a comment I made about a category (d) review -- someone giving 2 stars because it didn't work for them on Chrome Beta, which they have been forced to used "due to circumstances." I would like an extension that filters out those reviews too, because I'm probably missing out on good products on Amazon with 3.5 stars. People giving 1-star because of a shipping mix up, or because they didn't read the description carefully enough, might cause me to look over the product because there are so many options on Amazon at this point that most of us don't have time to scour all the reviews for every available product, and we just end up gravitating to those top three or four 4.5-star items. So the misplaced negative reviews can really affect a product -- which is why companies feel like they need to pay for fake reviews in the first place... I feel like filtering out the clearly erroneous reviews would be nearly as helpful as knowing when a review is inflated by fakes. Essentially, we need to control for the opposite end of of the spectrum from Fakespot -- genuine reviews by idiots.
  • (2019-10-10) Bogdan Irimia: Bad plugin, and a far worse idiot who runs it. Full of himself and hope this plugin get's banned
  • (2019-10-10) Daniel Correia: The extension used to work great. But now, it's got a bug where whenever I click on the fakespot extension button it asks me to sign in, although I am - meaning it's working just as good as a website bookmark. 1 - I don't understand why this extension would need the user to be logged in chrome - can you please explain? 2 - It used present the Fakespot scores on the Amazon.co.uk products and I've also tried to fiddle with the settings but it doesn't seem to save as they're gone every time I refresh. For these reasons I'm now using a different product from a competitor - but I would be willing to change back to this one(I prefer the Fakespot's product summary).
  • (2019-10-04) Eric Caldwell: Love it on Chrome but, not so much on Chromium browsers like Brave. Why not natively support other Chromium browsers?
  • (2019-10-03) D C: Not accurate at all.
  • (2019-09-26) Jonathan Hawley-Peters: Edit: my suggestion below was implemented within 24 hours. Rating increased one start to 5/5. It's pretty satisfying to have the analysis appear in the Amazon UI. One suggestion to the developer: either (1) kick off re-analysis automatically when I hit the product page on Amazon, or (2) if that's not something you can afford to automate, when the user clicks the "Analyze this Product" button. For me, installing this extension is about convenience. Clicking out to fakespot.com and clicking a button when I get there is cumbersome. I love FakeSpot, it makes my purchasing decisions easier and makes me feel better informed.
  • (2019-09-09) Reinier Perez Quinones: Many of the items on Amazon.com and Walmart.com dont have any rating, you will have to click an "Analyze now" button which takes 1-2 minutes to analyze all the reviews and come up with a rating for the item. The "analyze now" button only works on 2-3 items at a time before it gives you an error if you try to scan more then 3 items at a time. The app also gives many items an F score because it says that Amazon has removed reviews for the item, I dont know how that can happen usually Amazon doesnt approve reviews if they dont meet their standards but ive never heard of Amazon removing reviews that were already approved.
