KEF LS50 - Fakespot.com issue (Update: Solved)

  1. AllNight
    I was researching a pair of bookshelf type nearfield monitors and was pretty set on the KEF LS50's, until I saw that KEF has more than 50% fake positive reviews posted for these on Amazon.

    https://www.fakespot.com/product/kef-ls50-mini-monitor-high-gloss-piano-black-pair

    This is the sort of behavior that is usually seen from shady businesses, fly-by-night operations, and mass produced garbage from large companies that produce cheap products. It's certainly not expected to see this kind of behavior from a high end audio producer.

    Is this really a legit business and/or product or what? Why do they have an "F" rating for trustworthy product reviews?

    I need to follow this up, it is the responsible thing to do considering what I discovered.

    So, there are TWO fakespot URLs that point to these exact same speakers on Amazon:

    https://www.fakespot.com/product/kef-ls50-mini-monitor-high-gloss-piano-black-pair
    https://www.fakespot.com/product/ke...ack-pair-bcf897c1-66ad-4a13-8342-f93809c059c0

    Both of these pages link to the SAME product on Amazon, but each showed a different incorrerct number of reviews. The TOP link, the one I posted in the original post, had an "F" grade, while the bottom link had a "B" grade.

    I e-mailed FakeSpot about this, and they replied with the following:

    Now, both URLs show the correct number of Amazon reviews (120), and the top URL (https://www.fakespot.com/product/kef-ls50-mini-monitor-high-gloss-piano-black-pair) no longer reports an "F", it reports a "B". And the bottom URL (https://www.fakespot.com/product/ke...ack-pair-bcf897c1-66ad-4a13-8342-f93809c059c0) reports an "A" instead of a "B" now.

    :p

    Thanks for the follow up. I wonder if you can edit the thread title since it’s inaccurate now.
