I was checking some hardware vendor’s ratings on the BBB’s (Better Business Bureau) website earlier today when I came across an interesting query result. "The Better Business Bureau, founded in 1912, is not a government agency, but a network of local BBB organizations based in the United States and Canada, which work together through the Council of Better Business Bureau. The BBB goal is to foster a fair and effective marketplace, so that buyers and sellers can trust each other.” -Wikipedia
I came across Nvidia’s rating
on the BBB and it seems their rating is extremely low. In fact, it is an F. What does it mean? According to BBB’s rating explanation page
- it means: “We strongly question the company’s reliability for reasons such as that they have failed to respond to complaints, their advertising is grossly misleading, they are not in compliance with the law’s licensing or registration requirements, their complaints contain especially serious allegations, or the company’s industry is known for its fraudulent business practices.”
On the other hand, AMD seems to be in a slightly better position
, only a D, which is not great, but no doubt a lot better than an F and/or "fraudulent business practices" as advised above. However, even with AMD the BBB still suggests: "We have enough concerns about this company (for example, their offer, customer complaints, advertising, etc.) that we recommend caution in doing business with it."
