DPReview maintained a system of user reviews for cameras for many years. It was rendered useless by abuse.

Any system you can invent that relies on users to rate support by companies will be rendered just as useless in no time flat by fanboys.

A system without user reports would be equally useless.

As no reliable independent ratings can be gathered I think the whole concept is pointless.

If the ratings were based on people who could prove their point with documentation and images, it would be less open to abuse by fanboys or trolls.

Each repair will have a case number and the invoice will have a list of equipment and perhaps a description of work done.

If there was a will to do it, I'm sure something could be worked out.

There are some sites at least, for example

but it lumps together all products and all countries and does not seem to be regulated in any way.

Bur dpreview seem to be behind with their camera reviews, so maybe they are short-staffed?
