Do you still buy a product regardless of the reviews?
Sometimes I do, if it's something I really want, other times the reviews totally turn me off from the product. I guess it mainly depends on price. Dates now play an important role too.
My latest issue: I saw a propane fire pit yesterday on deals that I liked, went to the site, and there were 4 very positive reviews for it. Then I noticed all 4 reviews were posted yesterday. Suspicious? Yes, IMO. So I backed off and left a comment on the deal stating it looked nice, price seemed good, but it was funny how all the reviews were posted that day. I did not purchase the fire pit based on my suspicion. (I also received a downvote for my comment.) Mom is getting is on the woot bandwagon and I've been teaching her about deals.woot. I was telling her about the fire pit and showed it to her, and low and behold, 3 of the customer reviews on that website had been deleted. Now I can't help but feel suspicious about all 4 of them and I'm quite glad I did not purchase the fire pit.
