The last junky toothbrush I bought here lasted about 8-9 months, with use of around 3X week (as a backup). Now dead. I think I’ll stick with Sonicare- they have lasted 6-8 YEARS (with daily use). And they clean better…
Why Fairywill is not on Amazon anymore?
The reason for the ban is due to abuse of the Amazon review system. In simple terms, ‘free’ products were offered in exchange for 5 star ratings on their products supplied. As of 6th July 2021, all Fairywill electric toothbrushes, water flossers and accessories have been removed from sale on Amazon.
@werehatrack well then about 98% of items should be banned too. It’s rampant. Amazon reviews are a joke now. It’s like stealing, basically, and it pisses me off for those periods who don’t know better. It also pisses me off because there’s nowhere to get real reviews anymore.
@GirlPleeeeze There’s lots of it. I tend to use the two-star and one-star reviews as more of a barometer than the “rating”. And I’d rather buy something with a bunch of 4-star reviews that all point out the same shortcoming, as long as that issue isn’t critical for me. That’s rare, but it has happened. But 5-star reviews? So many are utter trash, often obviously so; the number that say “I just got it and haven’t tried it yet” is ridiculous all by itself, and a lot of those are the bought-with-merch ones. I’ve reported every instance of a seller’s attempt to buy a review, and a few items have been removed shortly afterwards. Amazon DOES NOT properly facilitate reporting those!
@GirlPleeeeze@werehatrack If you shop on Amazon (and there are some solid reasons not to), I highly suggest the ReviewMeta and FakeSpot browser addons. Neither is perfect, but between the two you can cut down on the time it takes to get an accurate picture of the product from the non-fake reviews.
@werehatrack I do all the exact same as you, except I have given up growing them. I have even called customer service to complain and tell them how I feel about it being deceiving to customers and their hard earned money.
@gdorn@werehatrack I used to use those but I find them useless as well now. I read a lot about how they come up with their results and it’s ridiculous. I feel that I can gauge it better than their algorithm.
