3. In my opinion...writing that many in one day...means they are paid to do so.

Perhaps I am wrong, but, I do not think all of those are legit.

Of course, I do not know for sure. If one thinks the reviews are totally objective and fair, perhaps ok. But if they all have the same slant and some of the same words. sounds phony to me. I am sure that companies pay for good reviews on a site like Amazon...Why?

When a bad review comes in, the company knows that that could be very bad for business. So they hire to a company that specializes in neutralizing bad reviews and bad reputations on the net. Yes, there are such companies, and I am sure they hire people to write reviews to counter the bad ones..
