Welp, all my searches point to this website that seems to be on its seventh iteration of hardware return rates. Unfortunately, it's for a French supplier, but since everyone and their mother seems to be using it, it might be a good enough sample size to use in general. http://www.behardware.com/articles/881- ... tes-7.html

However don't take this in a "OMG, I'm not buying from them ever." A return could mean anything.

If you want the tl;dr version
Spoiler: show
