(Article for the 11th period)

 

The conclusion part is still being edited.

Introduction:

 

If there is an unknown when being recommended and buying a product, it's the reliability of the product. The reputation of the manufacturer is there to reassure us, but from one model to another, the reliability can vary tremendously, and even well known manufacturers are not saved from having slip-ups.

 

Even though as we say in financial markets past performance is not an indicator of future performance,  today we publish part of the statistics on return rates at our disposal. It is important to take a step back when looking at these numbers, after all a decent part of these products have already become obsolete. Nevertheless, these statistics are informative and allow us to point the finger at certain products or manufactures from which we hope improvements will come in the future.

 

All these numbers come from an unnamed large French online store, which provided the statistics to hardware.fr

 

How is a product declared defective? There are two possibilities. Either a technician will consider through an exchange such as a phone call with a customer shows that the product does not work, or if there is a doubt, the product in question will be tested to validate the failure of said product.

 

We have to add that these statistics are limited to products sold by this e-vendor, and returns done specifically to said vendor, which is not always the case because people will sometimes return the product to the manufacturer, however this is a minority of the cases during the first year of a purchase, especially the online retailer will pay for return shipping. Some products however incite direct manufacturer returns through return stickers in the product box, this is notably the case for watercooling kits from Corsair.

 

Unfortunately there exists no other medium to get more trustworthy statistics. After all, who would believe the return rates given directly from a product's manufacturer?

 

These return rates concern inventory sold between October 1st 2013 and April 1st 2014, for returns created before October 2014 or in other words 6 months to 1 year of product lifespan. The evolution of return rates generally forms a flattened U shape with a practically flat bottom. These numbers then concern the first part of the product life when return rates are high.

 

The statistics by brand are based on a minimum of 500 products sold, those by model with a minimum of 100 products sold.

 

Return rates are compared to the previous article published in April 2014.

 

Motherboards:

 

- Gigabyte 2,51% (vs 2,02%)
- MSI 2,65% (vs 2,60%)
- ASUS 2,86% (vs 2,31%)
- ASRock 2,99% (vs 2,27%)

 

As with the previous period, of note is an increase in return rates due to failure for motherboards. All manufacturers see their rates increase, even if it's in a minor way for MSI. This permits MSI to go from 4th to 2nd place, positions exchanged with ASRock, with Gigabyte staying in the lead. The different manufacturers are however all relatively close to each other.
 

Here are the 10 most returned models:
 

- 8,80% ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
- 8,05% ASRock AD2550B-ITX
- 7,93% ASRock FM2A88M Extreme4+
- 7,25% ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0
- 7,20% ASUS Maximus VI Extreme
- 5,95% ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0
- 5,93% MSI Z87I
- 5,56% Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
- 5,26% ASRock 990FX Extreme3
- 5,06% ASUS Maximus VI Formula
- 5,05% ASRock FM2A55M-VG3

The Rampage IV Extreme was already in the front position 6 months ago. It might be partly to explain due to the important stress it's exposed to as a board for overclocking fanatics, nevertheless the rate is still very high. Other motherboards don't have the same excuse however, we can see that AsRock three AsRock AM3+ models with 4 stateOn note la présence de trois modèles AM3+ ASRock with 4 phase power designs with lower rates.

Broken down by chipset, the failure rate is as follows :

- 3,41% Z87
- 3,17% H87
- 2,83% B85
- 1,71% H81

- 3,55% 990
- 3,80% 970
- 2,55% A88X/A85X
- 2,52% A78/A75
- 2,92% A58/A55

With Intel the failure rate is highest for the highest end chipset, probably due to the fact that it's the one that allows overclocking. Here are the rates obtained by manufacturer for Z87:

- Gigabyte 2,18%
- MSI 3,22%
- ASUS 3,67%
- ASRock 4,25%

Gigabyte is the only to have a lower failure rate on  Z87 than it's overall failure rate. In detail here are the return rates for Z87 motherboards:

- 7,20% ASUS Maximus VI Extreme
- 5,93% MSI Z87I
- 5,06% ASUS Maximus VI Formula
- 4,76% ASUS Z87I-PRO
- 4,55% ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer
- 4,42% ASUS Maximus VI Gene
- 4,26% ASUS Z87-PRO
- 4,13% ASUS SABERTOOTH Z87
- 3,65% MSI Z87-G45 GAMING
- 3,48% MSI Z87-G43 GAMING

- 1,39% Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H
- 1,14% ASUS GRYPHON Z87
- 0,93% ASRock Z87 PRO3

And for AM3+ motherboards based on AMD 990FX, 990X et 970 chipsets:

- 7,25% ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0
- 5,95% ASRock 970 Pro3 R2.0
- 5,56% Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
- 5,26% ASRock 990FX Extreme3
- 3,31% ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z
- 3,60% ASRock 970 Extreme4
- 2,14% ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0
- 1,82% Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P
- 1,71% ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0

- Crucial 0,57% (vs 0,41%)
- G.Skill 0,97% (vs 0,91%)
- Corsair 1,20% (vs 1,41%)

 

For the fifth period in a row, the ranking is unchanged. The failure rate for Corsair, which had increased a bit during the last analysis is going back down.

 

Here are the five most failure prone memory modules:

- 6,01% Corsair VS SO-DIMM CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9
- 5,12% G.Skill SO-DIMM F3-12800CL9D-8GBSQ
- 5,04% Corsair VS SO-DIMM CMSO8GX3M1A1333C9 
- 4,40% Corsair XMS3 CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 
- 3,95% Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400

 

Here is more specifically the return rate for 2x4GB DDR3-1600 DIMM kits:

- 3,57% Corsair VS CMV8GX3M2A1600C11
- 3,29% Corsair XMS CMX8GX3M2A1600C9
- 2,75% G.Skill Ares F3-1600C9D-8GAB
- 2,03% G.Skill RL F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

- 0,00% Kingston ValueRAM KVR16N11S8K2/8

 

Graphics Cards:

 

- MSI 2,25% (vs 2,10%)

- Gainward 2,67% (vs 1,97%)
- Gigabyte 2,98% (vs 3,64%)
- ASUS 3,00% (vs 1,92%)
- Zotac 3,09% (vs 1,61%)
- Sapphire 4,04% (vs 2,80%)
- HIS 5,09% (N/A)

 

PNY which until now had the lowest failure rate is not in the ranking any more due to low non Quadro/Tesla sales volumes. Despite an increase in failure rates MSI gets the first place, an increase in failure rates we see across the board. It's HIS's first time in this ranking and it makes a noticeable entry... in last place.

 

Unfortunately this time way too many models have obtained return rates over 5%:

- 15,23% Sapphire HD 7950 With Boost (11196-19)
- 13,85% HIS R9 280X iPower IceQ X² Boost Clock
- 11,97% ASUS Radeon R9 280X R9280X-DC2T-3GD5

- 5,31% MSI R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC BE
- 5,15% Gainward GeForce GTX 770 Phantom OC
 

The four highest failure rates are occupied by cards based on AMD Tahiti chips, but we also find 2 GeForce with numbers in the alarming two digit range. Here are the numbers attained when regrouping the numbers by GPU:

- 2,53% Radeon HD 7850
- 1,66% Radeon HD 7870
- 10,28% Radeon HD 7950
- 7,63% Radeon HD 7970

- 2,81% Radeon R9 270
- 5,79% Radeon R9 270X
- 8,81% Radeon R9 280X
- 6,63% Radeon R9 290
- 5,58% Radeon R9 290X

- 1,57% GeForce GTX 660
- 2,57% GeForce GTX 760
- 3,16% GeForce GTX 770
- 4,75% GeForce GTX 780
- 2,91% GeForce GTX 780 Ti
- 1,33% GeForce GTX TITAN/BLACK

 

As in the previous period, Tahiti based cards (7950, 7970, 280X) are those which are most often taken back for failure. Litecoin mining might be the perfect excuse for these cards, but it is impossible to find out the impact this has on failure rates. This might partly explain it, but the numbers from the next period (sales form April to October 2014) the 280x are already at 6.83% despite the fact that GPU mining has lost the interest of most. We can then assume that there is a different problem with these cards.

 

Here are the failure rates obtained by GPU (as always for models selling more than 100 copies):

Hard Drives:

 

- Seagate 0,69% (vs 0,86%)

- Western 0,93 (vs 1,13%)
- HGST 1,01% (vs 1,08%)
- Toshiba 1,29% (vs 1,02%)

 

Good news for our date, the rates are down across the board except for Toshiba. This one exchanges spots with Western Digital and goes form 2nd to 4th place. We have to precise however that unlike the 3 others, returns for Toshiba can ONLY be done through the retailer, so the number may be a bit inflated. For the 2nd time in a row, there are no hard drives with return rates superior to 5%.

 

Here are the 5 least dependable models:

 

- 4,76% WD Black WD4001FAEX 
- 4,24% WD Black WD3001FAEX
- 3,83% WD SE WD3000F9YZ
- 2,56% HGST Travelstar 7K1000
- 2,39% Toshiba DT01ACA300 

 

Here is the ranking attained for 3.5" drives sold in more than 100 copies :

SSDs:

 

- Samsung 0,24% (vs 0,54%)
- Intel 0,27% (vs 0,90%)
- Sandisk 0,29% (vs 0,70%)
- Crucial 0,57% (vs 1,08%)
- Kingston 0,63% (vs 0,72%)
- Corsair 0,87% (vs 0,91%)

 

Samsung retains the first place, but Intel and Sandisk are a hair away from Samsung. Some will note the absence of OCZ, which was the leading brand for failure rates on these statistics for years. The brand is now barely in sale at the retailer from which we get these numbers.

 

Here are the 5 SSD models with the highest return rates:

 

- 3,27% Kingston SSDNow mS200 mSATA 120 Go

- 2,84% Corsair Force GS 240 Go
- 2,54% Corsair Neutron 64 Go
- 1,44% Corsair Force LS 120 Go
- 1,34% OCZ Agility 3 480 Go

 

Surprise, there is still an OCZ! But it's failure rate remains acceptable this time. In detail here are the failure rates for SSDs 120-128GB 2.5":

 

1,44% Corsair Force LS 120 Go
- 0,70% Crucial M500
- 0,66% Kingston V300
- 0,66% Corsair Force GT
- 0,45% Sandisk Extreme II
- 0,37% Sandisk Ultra Plus
- 0,29% Kingston HyperX 3K
- 0,29% Samsung 840 Pro
- 0,07% Samsung 840 EVO
- 0,00% Corsair Neutron
- 0,00% Intel 530
- 0,00% Sandisk SSD

Then 240-256 GB :

- 2,84% Corsair Force GS
- 0,71% Kingston HyperX 3K
- 0,68% Crucial M500
- 0,64% Kingston V300
- 0,49% Sandisk Extreme II
- 0,34% Samsung 840 Pro
- 0,32% Sandisk Ultra Plus
- 0,26% Samsung 840 EVO
- 0,00% Corsair Neutron
- 0,00% Intel SSD 335
- 0,00% Intel SSD 530

And finally 480-512 GB :

- 1,34% OCZ Agility 3 480 Go
- 0,27% Samsung 840 EVO
- 0,15% Crucial M500

 

Conclusion:

 

Compared to the previous period, failure rates evolved as follows:

You're posting the same exact thing 10 months later.... 

Not at all, this was just posted last week on hardware.fr 

This is their 11th article since they started doing failure rates. They post articles every 6 months. The time period this data is from is explained in the intro.

Of course all the crappy 'gaming' boards have the highest fail rates.

Thank you so much for doing this again. I was about to do translations on major Finnish retailer when they released information of most returned and fixed-under-warranty stuff last year but didn't. If they do it again, I'll post that to this thread too.

It would be interesting to see how the Finnish retailer's numbers compare to this French retailer. Some numbers are surprising and others are reassuring (the extremely low rates of failure for RAM, SSDs come to mind.) Just goes to show that sometimes the fanboying about reliability is not necessarily true.

Sadly it wasn't that in depth. Just 10 most repaired/returned products and rate for them. Besides, shop sells more than just pc parts, so you won't see much those in the list.

How do those numbers compare with human defects? How more or less reliable is the human being? Why so many hospitals and doctors on this freaking planet?

Time for a human being body recall, way way too many medical costs are wasted on it! Where is the stats on that!

 

:P

I roll with sigs off so I have no idea what you're advertising.

So here it is as promised. Today (funny enough) is the “Don’t buy anything” –day which is to campaign against western spending culture (or capitalism). Verkkokauppa.com is one of the largest retailers and as you can see from the list, products vary around many different categories. I’ve highlighted those which in my opinion are related to this topic.

 

In returned products you have to keep in mind that in here the consumer protection law allows full moneyback after 14 days. On basicly any product. So in returned list there are products that I assume have been on sale and people have bought without knowing where and how to use them.

It's very nice to see something like this. Normally all I can find on the internet regarding reliability is some random customer review somewhere that says something like "I've had 3 ASUS graphics cards fail on me, never buying ASUS again!" And that's really not helpful to me.

Thanks for this update, one of my favourite threads on this whole forum was the last time you did it.

 

These numbers explain perfectly why I want to punch people who constantly rag on Seagate HDD reliability in the face. A friend of mine in etailing has the same exact experience - Seagate being extremely solid.

 

IMO the Backblaze people who did the smear campaign on Seagate need to be prosecuted for slander and sued for loss of income. They took shitty external HDDs with each manufacturer's lowest-grade-possible 2.5" HDDs and stripped them down and used them as internal HDDs in a 24/7 industrial environment, then Seagate just happened to be worst in the bring-a-muffin-to-a-gunfight contest constructed by these villains. And people have been spewing 'hurr durr Seagate are bad mkay' ever since.

 

Seagate didn't need this shit on top of the floods wiping out some of their facilities for a time.

In case the moderators do not ban me as requested, this is a notice that I have left and am not coming back.
