I prefer ReviewMeta over FS. Run a report on both and you'll understand why.

With that said, just keep in mind that the sites aren't perfect. I've seen good products be filtered as bad and vice versa. They are generally pretty accurate though.
I'd agree - the ReviewMeta plug-in for Firefox is easier to understand, and it does seem to provide more useful "analysis" (like providing an adjusted numeric score). I don't find either system to be very good, but they are a little better than nothing when making buying decisions. I suspect they'll get better (personally, I prefer ReviewMeta at the moment). Of course, the "crooks" will often be one step ahead.... this just weeds out a lot of the obvious noise.

On that note, look at how many web sites (not Amazon) default their review sorting to "Highest First".... they should be embarrassed for such deception, but you often have to click multiple times to get to "most helpful review".

Lots of sponsored reviews from Amazon Vine program.
Basically, Amazon has its own shilling machine.

They are 100% accurate.
Fakespot really doesn't have many "false positives."

Most think it's wrong when it removes a ton of reviews on something like this. The reason is Fakespot is so awesome they take the FREE PRODUCT reviews out of the equation!

Did you get the pun? Free products are false positives hyuk hyuk.

EDIT:

https://www.fakespot.com/product/...small-blue
As a matter of fact this exact product is a perfect example of why Fakespot is so awesome.....look at the adjusted rating. It went from 4.5/5 to 2/5. That means when the vine reviews get pulled, the consensus is that these are bad.

Which is kinda surprising since AmazonBasics are typically at least mid-grade products.

Got it today. Works well in the kitchen to soak up splashes while cleaning dishes.
Its looks fine. Does not feel as nice as a more expensive memory foam mat. This one sinks right to the floor when stepped on.

I was about to say I use mine in kitchen for doing dishes. Also a dishpan helps with those deep sinks, easy on the back.

Post #25 was a quick review.

The mat is holding up and still looks like after a few weeks. It not a very comfortable mat and money can be better spent else were. Reason is that the mat isn't very supportive. Looks good with the beige floors and the roomba cleans it easily

Fakespot basically created a system that attempts to identify low quality or poorly written reviews, which implies they were paid for or otherwise written out of a conflict of interest. How accurate they are at identifying review fraud is hard to say, and whether or not that's even necessary when the prices and complexity of the product are low like this is also something to consider.

I mean, it doesn't hurt, and I do trust them. I don't think there's any way to be truly confident in their product though.
I've seen these mats (or at least a similar product/listing) in amazon code groups. They were being given away for free with seller-provided amazon codes a couple days ago. Currently (at least as of yesterday) there are/were code groups giving away amazon codes to bathmats for $4. But the big giveaway was a couple days ago when they gave enough freebies to get sold out of these bath mats for a day.

Anyway you can find similar bath mats at the 99 Cents Only store for $2.
