^I was actually on the verge of recommending the cx 650m to a friend,i was under the impression that its quality was acceptable for an entry level psu.

Does the cx 650m (and other models in corsair's CX lineup)have any known issues?Also is seasonic the OEM partner for the aforesaid antec psu?

The old CX650M model was not good(just search in forum) & unless this is some newly launched version with better quality(again no confirmation for this) it is better to stay away from CXM series. I am not sure about antec unit but @chimera201 said that earthwatt gold series quality should be equivalent to corsair latest CXx5x series.

The latest Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro is equivalent to Corsair's TXM series in terms of quality. Both have 7yrs warranty, old EAG Pro had 3. The warranty check should avoid all confusion with the old models. The new CX models have 5 yrs warranty the old ones had 3.

The newer grey label CX series power supplies are supposed to be better than their orange/green labelled predecessors(which were roughly equivalent to the VS series in terms of quality).I've seen some shifty shopowners trying to convince many unsuspecting buyers to buy older cx series psus by touting them as some of the "best" and the most "reliable" power supplies ever made-and those blokes fell for it as they were not very well informed.

I too had bought a CX 450 earlier this year for one of my computers but faced issues with its output on the 12v rail -it was dipping below 12v frequently in many situations,which was alarming.I made a thread about this issue on TDF.The unit was most likely defective but rather than sending it for rma i sold it off and got a txm 550.

Its quite possible that the CX series psus are not as good as we've been led to believe-therefore it may be prudent to stick to other brands/products as whitestar_999 has suggested.

Actually I also bought a CX550 recently & found no issues with it(latest white label). However now almost all places are out of these latest CX450/550/650/750 models(CX450/550 have completely disappeared from online sites). TX550M is also rarely available & now it seems TX650M is going the same way of disappearing from sites.
