    Default Antec NE650M vs Corsair CX550

    I had an antec tp650(CRAPPY PSU) but it was replaced via warranty due to power issue. But it took lots of time to deliver and within that time i have purchased corsair cx550. Then, the retailer provided me Antec NE650M. Now i am confused which one i should keep.



    So, please experts help to choose better durable PSU.

    CX550 is much much better.

    If your Antec was a Antec TruePower New 650W your warranty replacement is quite worse.

    That one indeed, 10 years ago, when it was new, it was actually a great power supply. It still is a good one, maybe yours just had a problem. But your new Antec NE650M is certainly much worse and not a good replacement.

    That's not a crap PSU. You might have had issues, but it's not crap. As Mask said, though. It's old. If it was actually under warranty still, then you bought someone's new old stock, which means it was probably sitting around somewhere for a long time, possibly in an environment without proper climate control, which can shorten the life of a PSU since the caps can fail if not properly reformed.

    Oklahoma Wolf did a review of that PSU on this website in 2009. I remember it because that review caused me to buy the blue LED version of that PSU. The original had trouble -- it was 2010 so I don't remember what. I RMA'd it and the replacement gave me good service as a standby/spare/fan tester to 2019, when I retired. I remember the PSU as a stalwart, so I agree with the other posters who have suggested that any problem with the PSU was a problem with the individual PSU, not the line of PSUs as a whole.

    Manufacterers also doesn't mark their PSU by production date, mostly on the internal components they do. If I look up a review of a PSU and it's an old review, I assume it's an old PSU.

    A lot code is typically part of the serial number.

    For example: The first four digits of a Corsair S/N is the year and week the PSU was manufactured.
