Not directly related to Soylent but this concerns a site it’s currently being sold on, you may have heard of it? Amazon.com A lot of consumer reports-type sites have mentioned this but it doesn’t seem to have been fixed yet. If you see a product where 90% of the reviews say “unbiased” anywhere in them (of a coincidental 85% 5 Star rating spread), it’s a SCAM.
Whether it’s clothing, a cord, a gadget, a tool. It will be broken within a few months, maybe less, and by that time Amazon and vendors in general will not be liable for a replacement. This is also known as planned obsolescence, and it has wormed its way around review policy (as well as US federal codes) to be technically legal.
Here is an example product that started out with around a perfect 5 stars, then mysteriously ran out of stock and all new reviews are extremely critical or updated after the fact (and revised downward) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FUZE9QU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
You can refer to the companies Amazon lists by default on the left row and if you don’t recognize the company name, hit CTRL+F (find function) and type “unbiased”. This doesn’t necessarily need to be disqualifying criteria but if almost every review contains this word, tread carefully.
