Crucial has moved above Kingston into top spot with a much reduced rate, but the stats are very good for both. G.Skill has once again moved up the rankings, passing in front of Corsair. OCZ’s numbers are once again rather poor: to recap, OCZ has announced that it will no longer produce RAM and these stats are therefore for rather old references.
No fewer than 8 references have returns rates of over 5%:

Kingston and Crucial do not appear in this classification. Only one OCZ model is present here as many models with rates of over 5% weren’t sold in sufficient quantities (100 or more) to be included in the results by model.
Only one Crucial model has a rate of higher than 2%, the Crucial Ballistix 3x2 GB DDR3 1333 MHz CL7 (BL3KIT25664BN1337). No Kingston model has a rate of over 2%.
