Components returns rates (5)
by Marc Prieur
Published on November 16, 2011

Conclusion
Compared to our previous report in April this year, there have been a few changes in returns rates. Returns for power supplies are up from 1.2% to 1.5% and the rate for SSDs is up from 2.2% to 2.7%. The results for hard drives are however quite stable at 2%, compared to 1.9% previously, while memory and graphics cards are both down 0.1 points to 1.2% and 1.6% respectively. The overall rates for motherboards was stable at 1.9%.

As always, the overall figures mask significant differences. Note the excellent rates of under 1% obtained by Antec for power supplies, by Crucial and Kingston for RAM and Intel and Crucial for SSDs.

On the other hand, several manufacturers have rates of over 3%. This is the case for Fortron / FSP Group for power supplies (though this drops to 0.6% if the most problematic model is excluded), OCZ for RAM and SSDs, Hitachi for hard drives and XFX for graphics cards. With the exception of Fortron, these manufacturers were already bottom of the class in our previous article.
