Just for the record, every time i've RMA'd a genuinely faulty product it's been sorted pretty quick. Not as quick as walking into an apple store, for same day granted (I mean, I don't even know if they can do that, but I've heard stories) but I do believe that comes with it's own costs that I don't have to spend (AppleCare, is it?) But I've had a faulty SATA SSD replaced, and a faulty NVMe drive replaced. In fact, the NVMe got collected from my door yesterday (tuesday), and it's replacement is arriving tomorrow (thursday). Gotta hand it to intel for that one.

It will be interesting to see how quickly these proprietary SSDs in MacPros can be changed as an example, for peasants like myself, or some huge company who just bought 100 of them.
