Review spam? Who could be doing this if not their competitors?

Look at this. I found it on the tigerdirect website when I was looking for a replacement keyboard since I dropped a large 2x4 on the last one and busted all the keys in the lower left corner:
Compare the texts. There are minor differences that have very obviously been found and replaced, and there are a couple of phrases missing. Other than that they're exactly the same. All I can think is that there's some sort of review spammer who posts nasty reviews of Compaq computers. Who's doing this? Is this some sort of dirty trick by ... competitors or someone?
