So I’m one of those people who always checks reviews before buying things, on-line or otherwise. And I realize some reviews are not to be trusted for whatever reason. But I discount that I try to filter for information that would be true.
For instance, all positive reviews without specific details are overlooked. Same with negative reviews that lack specifics.
Sometimes you can spot a “professional” reviewer by how polished the review is – reviews from real people are often written in conversational tone, as opposed to proper grammar and syntax.
After spending enough time and acquiring experience purchasing items I’m confident that the information gleaned from reviews is reasonably accurate.
