3.0 out of 5 stars Can't sell them?, October 23, 2012
This review is from: Crock-Pot SCCPCTS605-S Cook Travel Serve 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker (Kitchen)
I am very interested in this item although very reluctant to purchase based on the reviews. I understand the Vine program concept but when they are the only reviews on an item that's scary. I am not sure this isn't a form of a "Manufacturer push" for a good review. I give a lot of these reviewers credit for a good to great review of this product (some even technical in nature). I believe the "STAR" rating system would be lower if these 12 people actually purchased with their own money this item. I think I'm going to look at other products a little bit more and then make my decision based on unbiased reviews. Just my .02

Hi J. Vaughn, I found your review very interesting, and the title was right to the point: "Can't Sell Them?", no negative reviews and all reviews from the Vine. What's interesting is you equate that with the reviews being suspect. I've also wondered if there may be those who equate 5 star reviews with the increased likelihood of obtaining additional opportunities to review. You say you're knowledgeable of the program and so you must realize there are no advantages for giving 5 star ratings. Still, people will do what they do, no matter. However, by the same token I suggest when you read reviews from alternative sources you consider those equally suspect; the good as well as the bad. What's important about Amazon reviews is that there is, at least, a semblance of control. And reviewers really shouldn't have ulterior motives. But then people will do as they do, no matter still. All I can assure anyone of, though, is that my reviews are as honest and truthful as they can be. And, I think, that's all anyone reader can hope for.

This is a brand new product so the number of reviews will increase as the product is put into use. The Vine program helps the buyers out there by their reviews of the new products. Sales will increase now that the product is available.

None of that actually matters though. If you haven't purchased or at least used the item in question, you shouldn't write a review.

If you read the Vine program reviews, they all have used the item - that is expected if you're asked to be a reviewer in this program. A plus for me in reading these reviews is that their reviews are generally data-based and about the overall performance of the crock-pot (vs. focusing to an extreme on one issue), they aren't overly emotional, and they are on-topic. I appreciate not having to wade through the other types of reviews.
