Gobe filters on Amazon

What's the story with these filters?  Nearly all of them on Amazon have near 5 star reviews.  And they are inexpensive!  

There must be a catch here somewhere.  Have you tried one of these filters?

No. I don't read the 5-star reviews, I read the 1-star reviews. And I wouldn't buy this product. At this price point (for the Schott CPL, for example) there are other products that are reputable and more predictable.

IMNSHO, of course.

Can Amazon reviews be gamed?  

*Are Amazon reviews gamed? - that's how I should ask.

Please tell me this is a rhetorical question. Of course many of them are gamed. Google it.

Put aside Gary's answers rough edges, he's right on dot with it.  Amazon reviews are an arm pit.  Always consider the 1 through 3 star reviews.  

OP- these Gobe filters.  Pass.  I have a friend who bought one and the build quality was off and he had weird coloring going on with it.
