I wish that Consumers Magazine or similar non-profit outfit would cover computer products (other than the redi-built ones)
Guys,

This site, BEHARDWARE, publishes periodically the return rate of major components (stats are coming from RMA numbers from a major european etailer):

-Motherboards
-Power supplies
-RAM
-video cards
-HDD & SSDs

This is the latest one:

Components returns rates (page 1: Introduction) - BeHardware

There is some pretty surprising results in this thing...I recommend that you read the whole article from BEHARDWARE...the same can be found on the french version HARDWARE.FR...
