Amazon's product review association policy
on 25 January 2015
When will Amazon stop associating customer reviews with products they were not written for?
This (I use the term very loosely of course, because I am certain this review will appear in relation to every 'Sound of Music' video product sold through Amazon) product, the 'Sound of Music: 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray', is a good example of the ridiculousness of Amazon's policy. At the time of writing, it is approximately six weeks before the 'Sound of Music: 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray' is due to be released for sale, yet there are currently 506 customer reviews for it. Not one of those 506 reviews will have been written for it, and as a result, many will contain incorrect and misleading information.
How many times has a specific product been bought because an Amazon customer review referred to some feature or other, only for it to be discovered on receipt that that particular feature was specific to a different version of the product for which the review had been written, not the version purchased?
Please note that my star rating is not for the 'Sound of Music: 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray', but for Amazon's product review association policy. Amazon appear to do so many things well, why can't they get this right?
