And like I said - it's a false dichotomy to believe you can do one and not the other. Dell still sells very good monitors. I have a U2410 that I've had for four years, and is still fantastic. At the...

Honestly?

For the vast majority of builders, a PSU is an afterthought. When it works perfectly it's a quiet, boring box with wires on one end and a plug on the other that you never, ever think...

If there were a way to get a certification label for build quality and ripple/noise/vreg I would gladly put it on every PSU if I could be assured our competitors were influenced to do so as well....

The question is really what are you trying to achieve?

Are you just trying to point out that our $79 power supplies don't have the same high-end components and tight ripple and noise that they...

The original VX450 and VX550 units were, from a sales perspective, pretty dismal. They were overpriced and underpowered for the market - people that bought 450-550W PSUs tended to buy cheaper...

I'm biased, but if you get a good price on a CX series I think they're perfectly fine. They're definitely our "entry level" products but your system isn't even going to use half that wattage, so...

Right. Most users can buy a 750W gold price for the cost of a 550W platinum. So the question becomes "would you rather have 200W extra power or 2% better efficiency?"

And the answer surprisingly...

I meant Corsair specifically. Of course it happens elsewhere.

What historical evidence? Do you have any proof that the unit you got from us differs in functionality significantly form a unit you would buy off the shelf?

I stand by my products (though PSUs aren't mine anymore), and while none have been perfect, we do pretty well overall.

I can't control if people want to make a conspiracy out of everything. I can...

I've been here for almost 10 years. I was here when we started the PSU business, before even Steve Lee was brought in. As far back as I can remember it, we always handled presskit inventory...

I believe we did the Beveled corners on the GS series we launched a year and a half ago, so it's not the first time we've used that design either. The "Be Quiet" guys gave me a hard time for that...
