so if there's a drive that has 1 star out of 5 in 5 different websites you will still get it because the hunch from the bad ratings aren't scientific???

In statistics you don't get causation, you get correlation; meaning that you get what you screen for. If you screen for a drive that has good ratings. You'll get one that has good ratings. But that is all you'll get.

Whatever works for you.

And science is just a large N of anecdotal evidence. Don't look now, but I think there are trees in that forest.
That maybe your idea of science, but that is not what science is.
