Adding a blog comment feature in your website is not a bad idea at all. However, you are right when you said that allowing people to comment on the website will give some the opportunity to provide bad feedback.
But when you weigh things out, for me I personally think that adding a comment section would help you increase your page rank as well as target the right visitors/market.
Why would blog comments increase page rank? When a lot of people take interest in your articles and there is a good exchange of conversation between you and the readers and among your readers, Google will see and consider your site as an "authority" , legitimate site- since people are really engaging conversation in your page.
Why increase in visitors or market? When people find you online because of these comments, a lot of them will begin to trust you. Believe me, even if you have several bad comments on your website, if your content is that good, people will re-visit your site and even will subscribe to you.
The bottom line is, you cannot simply please everyone. However, blog comments will enable you to see the things you need to improve on, in case you receive a bad feedback. Bad feedback or not, this will give you an edge to really provide good articles and good product choices to your readers.
I hope that helps.
