I know of at least 2 models, where such thing was done - sent sample was full range, got certified and certificate was used on limited range retail version. Strike-X 600W would be one example.

They do make full range Strike-X units; at the same time, still a shady move.

What I'm saying is that it's a shady move on Corsair's part if they are trying to claim 80+ cert and it would break the guidelines for 80+.

The website is all F*d up. Someone's supposed to go in there and fix it.

They're 240VAC input only and NOT 80 Plus certified (obviously).

Yeah, what Jon said. The website is wrong, somebody didn't update the new page template manually and just copied another PSU product and changed the name. We're updating it.

Corsair Unveils VS Series Entry Level Power Supplies for 220-240VAC Markets
Quote:
Corsair launched the VS line of entry-level PSUs for markets with 220~240VAC electricity, which strikes out 100~120VAC markets, such as the US and Japan. Available in 350W, 450W, 550W, and 650W models priced at the equivalent of $40, $50, $60, and $70, respectively, the PSUs feature completely fixed cabling, compliance with most modern PSU technologies (except 80 Plus efficiency certification), and features most standard protection mechanisms against over/under voltage, over-load, and short-circuit. The four use a single +12V rail design. The 350W and 450W models feature single 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, the 550W and 650W feature two.

I don't think the profits they are gonna make on these PSUs are worth all the bad press that is gonna come their way. Bad trade by my standards.

What bad press? In my books having viable options at lowest end is good.

Seems expensive to me, given the lack of 80+ they could completely leave out all PFC and voltage doubling options and just go with a straight bridge+cap input arrangement.
It doesn't cost that much more to get an antec platinum 650.

Need APFC to sell these units in the EU.
Price wise, that's a conversion to USD.

The VS series was the cheapest units in the Indian market for awhile that was any decent.
Comparitively, an EA430D cost around $100 USD vs VS450.
