Perhaps I am just lucky but I have never received a defective GPU :) 

Unfortunately, defects do happen and sometimes make it through QC.
If your card was DOA, give the manufacturer a call and I am sure they will get you set up with a new one.

I voted assuming you are asking if I ever received a defective GPU, which I have once (though the other 10+ times I have not).
