  1. Got a RD 580 for the kid a while back and had good luck with it.

    Seems like there was that one European retailer that released RMA/return info and PC RD models were top of the list, and by a good bit.

    will edit in a link if I find it later, running from memory now.
    **edit**

    The headline here is awful because it doesn’t follow the data at all, it’s clickbait, but I want to reference where I found it. Particularly since the source material isn’t a web page, it’s just a Google Doc.

    .

    Links to a Google Doc supposedly provided by Mindfactory, a German retailer.

    The PowerColor Red Devil models are at a much higher RMA rate that most every other SKU. They also tended to sell considerably better than other models.
