Re: CORSAIR ripping people off... selling low quality PSU's??

Corsairs are known to make some of the rock solid PSU's, such incidents would definitely affect their reputation and most important is the trust customers have on any brand.
Once you loose trust on any brand, it is difficult to get back customers.

I myself own a VX450, Zero problems till date, luckily mine is older and post june 2010. I guess it is not affected as per the article.

Well , not to say this is surprise. still i believe corsair is the best. They might have some reason to change like that but not to cheat their loyal customers.. This is kind of hype to destroy corsair fame.

Anways,, I always prefer HX and AX series than other series in corsair since there are flagship brands...

^^The person who started the thread is probably not doing it to defame Corsair.

I did say vx/tx series aren't the same as they used to couple of months ago ;). Said it before and said it again don't trust a brand with your closed eyes.

But in anyways, vx/tx is an old product. It was a matter of time they would be phased out. Newer makes should have come under some other labels, but I won't go that far to call them unreliable. Scaled down, probably yes.

Interesting thread. Not conclusive yet, to make such big claims.

I just want to point out the underhand tactics even companies like corsair are using..
and BTW i just helped my friend buy a corsair 550vx one week ago. I dont have anything against corsair but such changes are quite major and require intimation atleast.

Guys have an open mind. stop ignoring credible info.... especially corsair fanboys;)

Re: CORSAIR ripping people off... selling low quality PSU's??

^^ Its not "Under Hand". Its called cost cutting. You want to see under hand? We all know about substandard psu with no over/under volt protection circuit and EM protection.

Its not as if we're ignoring it. We saw the pics. I said its not as same as it used to be and the casing built and paint job/wires/sleeves felt more like cx400.

Re: CORSAIR ripping people off... selling low quality PSU's??

Did you read my 2 comments above?? Properly? I said the newer makes should have been under newer series. Doesn't that sentence itself make it clear?

I am not saying you're wrong. Its your choice of words that over exaggerates till the facts are cleared out. Stop making "sensational/breaking news" information. This is a community, not a media circus.

Corsair TX series has NEVER been considered good amongst psu purists.. google for a few reviews and you'll find out flaws in build quality. The HX series however is amazing.. And if u really want quality u can go for the AX series.. 80+ gold

Re: CORSAIR ripping people off... selling low quality PSU's??

Guys, there is a lot happening regarding the change by Corsair. How many of you actually went and read all the pages on the OC forums. Are we not just over reacting and jumping to conclusions. The crux is not that Corsair is using parts which are of lower quality --- it is that they had not informed the consumer base of the same. The OP on OC forum has the same gripe. "Why were people not informed" and "why no new review samples" were sent out. Specially see the replies of the Corsair representative. It is quite open and transparent.

It does not mean -- What the title of this thread implies. Since we are a democratic forum, I will leave it as it is. Rest is the OPs, and users choice here.

well, I'll rename the thread straightforwardly. It looks more like a kneejerk title.
