Interesting find. That is pretty much domination.

I think Crucial does better on Newegg based on number of reviews for their SSDs and comparable numbers from Samsung units. That's a very un-experimental way to look at it, I know. smile.gif

Fake reviews by manufacturers are very common nowadays, the different is just massive or not a lot. Fake chatting in forum to promote a product is also very common.

Fake sales number in amazon would be harder except amazon itself helps products to fake it.

What is the point of your first post, that the list of top selling SSDs on Amazon is false?

IMO, that list on Amazon is quite reasonable and believable for several reasons:

Samsung SSDs are popular because they are quality products, and often recommended in forums like this.

The SSDs listed are either cheaper drives, thus more popular due to price, or among the best performing SSDs, like the 840 Pro.

The non-Samsung SSDs listed are either cheaper, first time SSD buyer models of low capacity, or cheap higher capacity SSDs, like the SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB, and Crucial M500 240GB. Most of the Samsung SSDs fall into both of these categories as well.

What is the relationship between potential fake reviews on Newegg, and the top selling SSDs on Amazon? Newegg reviews are filled with uninformed, ignorant comments, IMO they are all but worthless as an aid to purchase decisions.

I doubt that any retailer would push sales of a few products while their stocks of the same type of product made by other manufactures languish to the point they must be sold at a lower margin/profit. I have never been influenced by "Top Sellers" lists, but undecided first time buyers use them to make decisions for them. Any savvy retailer would not sell poor products to that market segment, since that would create more returns and unhappy customers.

Fake chatting in forums can happen, but many of the regular members that post in this forum have done so for a very long time, and will always relate the pros and cons of any SSD. I could give you many examples of that.

amazon top list can be just like google search result to get higher spot by paid, may be fake or real.

long term poster in forum can be long term getpaid promote salesman. Very good one can mix true and fake comments.

both are good marketing weapons.
