I think reviews are a tricky thing....are basing your review on what you think it should have but doesn't (headphone jack), are you reviewing based on a defective unit?
Not only that, the squeaky wheel gets the oil right? People are more likely to write a bad review when upset, as opposed to a good review when content.
I love my Kindle PW, easily the best Kindle yet IMHO and yet I didn't write a review....so I guess that makes me part of the problem.
I think the bad reviews due to not knowing the specs are more than compensated for by the reviews from folks who will take whatever they are given and be happy with it. They believe the hype. Though this doesn't apply to most of the good reviews, there are enough of them to counter the bad reviews submitted because people do not read the specs.
EDIT: I apologize if the previous statement was offensive to some, it was meant as an analogy not as an attack on beliefs. And there was nothing in it about all good reviews coming from "mindless people," only some of them fit that category, so don't read more into that than is there.
