The opposite side of that is that the reviews for different versions are aggregated. If the Kindle conversion is terrible but the book is good, the Kindle version will be over-scored, and the paper versions will be dragged down by the conversion.

Personally, I'll always check the dissenting reviews. If the complaint is something stupid, it won't put me off. (If the dissenting reviews are the good ones, I'm probably not planning to buy the book. )
