    Default Growell product reviews bad ones don't get published

    As the title says, I have written quite a few reviews on Growell's web site and found to my disgust only the good ones get published.

    Reviewed "Silver Bullet Roots" and gave it a generous 3 star review - NOT PUBLISHED.

    Reviewed "X-Stream Aeroponic Propagator" and gave it a 1 star review - NOT PUBLISHED.

    Other 4-5 star reviews - ALL PUBLISHED.

    If I were to rate Growell service it would have been 5 star but now dropped to 3.5 star as I did use the reviews as guidance when I purchased the "X-Stream Aeroponic Propagator" and they really are badly designed and the build quality is shocking for the price. Wish I had taken half a day and made one myself foe 1/4 the price.

    All bullshit if you ask me same as Amazon.

    Most of them are at it mate, even Feebay 'adjust' star ratings...as you say, what is the point of them at all. Cheers for the heads up on Growell though

    Think I may start putting my reviews on here at least they can be discussed and other people can comment with their views.

    No complaints about the company joker just the squwiffed review score. I have started using One Stop as a consequence of this and must admit the service so far has been fantastic. One Stop was the only place I could find Hydro Guard, came next day, well packed and fair price..

    Im with Gardro on this one, Everyone is going to have their own take/opinion on things and imo reviews are mostly based on buying experience and delivery time as opposed to value for money and build quality these days.

    Everytime I read one of your posts I cant help but imagine you look exactly like your avatar pic, ledger joker behind a keyboard and pc screen licking your lips, huffing and grunting, frantically adjusting your tie and smearing face makeup on the desktop while you laugh hysterically and rock back and forth in your chair barely hanging on to sanity, and in an instant brought back to lucid existence when you catch a whiff of a freshly opened pack of bickies and a hot brew PMSL!

    isn't just growell that filter/edit reviews though
    on ebay you can actually have a bad review removed from your list

    also lots pay for good reviews on items also staff using alias and fake reviewing
    that band just got caught buying 38k in positive feedback

    there uk tour had 3 people turn up at the venue lol

    Amazon for sure. I wrote a 1 star review over something that I had reason to suspect it had been tinkered with, or was fake, but they would not publish it. They even had the nerve to tell me why the review was not acceptable!

    And their "Warehouse Deals" is a bit hit and miss. I have picked up a few things from there which have been broken outright, or mis-labelled, poorly described etc thus wasting time to reorder and to have to send it back for refund. I honestly think that they have got too big for their own good. Then again the monitor I am using now is from Amazon Warehouse, and it has been okay so far.

    That's why when it comes to grow supplies I'd rather go to my local grow shop and stick with what they have, or just use whatever that is generic.

    Totally agree Valentia. I was sent a customer return dehumidifier from Germany all marked and just stuffed in a box when I paid for a brand new unit, the bottom of the box had been covered with a Walkers Prawn Cocktail crisp box. I went to the bother of taking photographs and writing a review, but not published,. No explanation.
    When I looked into it they are a massive seller on Amazon so no bad reviews accepted it seems. All of their products have 4-5 stars.
