Comment: Fake reviews and deleted reviews (Score 2, Interesting) 137

by SuperTaro (#26530129) Attached to: Belkin's President Apologizes For Faked Reviews
Fake reviews is a big problem and definitely not unique to Belkin. Beware of another type of dishonest practice: the retaining of good reviews and tossing of poor ones.

I purchased an iRobot Scooba floor-cleaning robot for $450. Quite an investment, but the reviews were all great so I felt the investment was worthwhile. The unit worked well until shortly after the 1-year warranty expired. When I contacted customer service, I was offered a new unit for a $340 but no repair alternative whatsoever.

So I posted a poor review - one which never showed up on their website....
