RESCUECOM’s 2013 Q3 Computer Reliability Report released.

The results are in for RESCUECOM’s 2013 Q3 Computer Reliability Report; Samsung maintains a strong lead, while Apple shifts downward in computer reliability score.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. November 18, 2013 – “While Samsung still outperforms other manufacturers in computer reliability, the top 4 of top-ranking computer manufacturers perform well above the competition” stated David Milman, CEO of RESCUECOM. “RESCUECOM’s Level 3 Certified Technicians handle a great number of calls for tech support as well as for computer repair from all 8 of the ranking manufacturers.”

The computer reliability report scores for 2013 Q3 are:

1. Samsung (694)
2. Apple (259)
3. Lenovo/IBM (250)
4. ASUS (212)
5. Toshiba (69)
6. HP (66)
7. Dell (50)
8. Acer (19)

Samsung walks away from the others with just over 1 percent of the repair share and a reliability score more than double that of Apple, the next highest ranked manufacturer.

Toshiba gains in both market share as well as computer reliability, rising from seventh to fifth in overall rank.

IBM/Lenovo, HP, Dell, and Acer vary only slightly from the last quarter in both market share and computer reliability.

During what has been traditionally dubbed the “back to school” quarter, new product launches and seasonal strength can be credited for the U.S. market positive results. Yet, of the top 8 manufacturers in this report, only 4 show an increase in market share, Asus showing a gain of about 3.4%.

Apple shows the greatest decline from quarter 2 in computer reliability, dropping to less than half of its score during the second quarter. IBM/Lenovo ranks near Apple in reliability, with Asus not far behind IBM/Lenovo.

RESCUECOM determines the manufacturer’s reliability by comparing their market share of shipped computers in a given time period to the percentage of computer repair calls RESCUECOM’s Level-3 Certified Technicians handle for the same manufacturer.

RESCUECOM used the following data to calculate reliability scores for the 2013 Q3 Computer Reliability Report:
