    if it really belongs to VS class, I doubt cooler master will be confident enough to provide 5 years of warranty on it!

    I asked cooler master FB page which is better mwe or mw lite, they said mwe. lower watt units are for Asian market only, so finding reviews of such units will be difficult.

    Cooler master increased warranty on mwe and mw lite from 3 years to 5 years for few countries.
    btw are you talking about the green labelled cx450 and white labelled one?

    yeah. this month it was supposed to be 5 years old,but sadly it stopped working in January this year. Just ordered corsair cx450 from mdcomputers. I am waiting for its dispatch.
    I think vp450p from antec will last for around 2-3 years. When it was about 2 years and few months it failed. That time when I purchased it, I was lucky enough to get warranty extended to 4 years from usual 2( now I think it comes with 3 years). I got a new unit back and it has failed too just after 2 years and few months.

    strange they have MWE bronze at 3 years , but mention MWE and Masterwatt lite as 5 years for india..

    and in below coloum where it is mentioned for All regions they have it at 3 years

    MWE 450 costs Rs 2300 only..

    No, green is discontinued and it had no cx450 , only 430

    both are white label ones with same CP number with 5 year warranty on both.. there are 2 OEMs for new CX series, great wall and CWT..

    ohh.. :( didn't knew that and i was thinking you were very lucky to have Capxons last you 5 years .. and when did your motherboard fail ? n. did you tried getting mobo repaired as it was good quality ?

    that could be some error. as far as I know, cooler master provides 5 years of warranty on mwe ,mw lite and mwe bronze for purchases made after January this year.

    Ya mwe450 @ rs.2300 with 5 years of warranty, something is certainly wrong with cooler master :p

    motherboard failed in January this year :( . it needs chip level servicing and I am yet to find a good repairing shop here. will be repairing it if the cost is affordable.

    If the motherboard is MSI then have it repaired from Acro Engineering who does RMA for MSI. They have done a great job in replacing my 4th gen mobos whole chipset when it got damaged in a thunder strike last year.

    hmm i don't think that is seasonic based , but this appears to be FSP based .. a few reasons

    1) Compare pics on mdcomputers and antec website , the new series has a redesigned logo in centre of fan .. new one has Antec written in gold/yellow , whereas MDcomputer and the amazon buyer box pics have it written in white at the centre of FAN

    2) Seasonic based is 92 % efficient , whereas older EAG gold "PRO" says 91 % efficient and the one received by amazon buyer says 91 % max efficiency if you check his side box pic

    3) if you compare the BOX pic shown in this antec link and compare it to the pics posted by person on Amazon..you will see they are a lot different ,

    EA550G
    https://www.amazon.in/Antec-EA550G-PRO-ANTEC/dp/B075V3GF4X/

    4) one of the buyer itself mentions this is FSP aurum based

    Hmm would be bad if there are 2 models with exactly the same model name. The older models didn't have the "PRO" label.

    It does have the pro label .. check the pics posted by Buyer on amazon or mdcomputers /theitdepot pics , not the product pic posted by seller on amazon .. if you check the pic posted by buyer has month of import showing April 2017 .. and Antec announced the seasonic based sometime in dec 2017

    there was also simple 550g series without pro label but likely different from older FSP 550g pro series

    It seems like they are the old ones :(
    Got this service center catalogue dated 5/7/2017
    Damn didn't know there existed an Earthwatts Gold Pro with 3 yrs warranty before. It was never on Antec's website or any PSU review or aggregator sites.

    Antec is dead now in India. Corsair is the first to introduce the new models. Corsair pretty much has a monopoly now in the Indian market. Good thing they haven't realized this yet :D

    According to the list, the Antec VP450P has no certification but the Corsair VS450 is 80+ certified. Yet the VP450P is a higher tier, why?

    The list is outdated right now (no competition in the market right now only Corsair has introduced new models). But back then the Antec VP450P was overall better than the Corsair VS450 in terms of build quality, components and performance. Since then there has been 3 iterations of the Corsair VS series. The latest one is either on par or better than Antec VP450P. You should check the part numbers to see if its the latest one or not.

    From oldest to latest:
    VS450 (CP-9020009)
    VS450 (75-001835 / CP-9020049)
    VS450 (75-001835 / CP-9020096)
    VS450 (CP-9020170)

    But then again Corsair VS series isn't recommended. At the very least one should get a Corsair CX (latest model).

    Hi...as per my knowledge Coolermaster has a history of false advertising with PSUs and has only launched this in the Asian market. There could be some flaws that only western professional reviewers can catch.It supports 115V range so it could possibly release in US too.
