I don't recall ever seeing anything like that. It does seem odd. One metric I do use is the sum of 1&2 stars. If that is more than 15% I take a much closer look into the ratings.

Oh believe me, it's out there. Depends on what you're shopping for. I've seen this halo pattern on some headphones, for example. The large kind you usually use at home, not the buds!

I've seen some split ratings. I like the Photon MicroLights and bought several. One of the third party suppliers was ringing in Chinese ripoffs so the people who got those and didn't realize it were giving bad reviews.
I'd ordered three and got two genuine and one that was obviously a knockoff. I emailed Amazon, told them the knockoff worked okay but obviously wasn't the real deal. It wasn't a big enough deal to send it back for an exchange but Amazon credited me for it anyway. That particular third party supplier was dropped. That has to be a headache for Amazon. They can't warehouse everything in the world but vetting the suppliers for some of the small items must be a pain.

Amazon also has no price control over vendor-sold products. I've written 5-star reviews which I titled "Rip Off" and "Sucker Play" because by the time I wrote the review the price had been outrageously jacked up. Those reviews were "liked" by 4 or 5 people last time I looked.

I buy a lot of Kindle books, often from first time authors. For three or four bucks I'm not really concerned if they turn out to be losers but some of them have reviews that appear to have been written by family members, including the dog. That doesn't necessarily mean they're bad though.
I pay more attention when buying higher priced items. I answer more questions than I ask but I do like the way you can ask actual users if the FramishCo SuperWidget will fit your 1909 Hupmobile.

My reviews are generally positive but I have noticed if I call a piece of crap a piece of crap, the comments start to fly.
