    Even the old AX1200 (non-i version) was a different pin-out. For a while we had three different pin-outs. Ridiculous.

    We only listen to people that rate themselves "Tech Level 5" on newegg. Anybody else may be user error.

    To be accurate what I said was that we have seen buyers value features over performance. For example: the HX1000i is more efficient, fully modular, quieter, and has corsair link integration. To say...

    Or more importantly, don't want to pay for AXi.

    I think the goal was to create a very attractive platinum certified product and I think we did that. Now, whether there's enough people interested?...

    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...

    No, not stupid. Just apathetic. I find that to be a big difference.

    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 would guess that when you can get them at the dollar store or at flea markets for $1 each, people view them as disposable.

    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...
