This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: Looked nice
Cons: Failed (blew out) less than four weeks in service. $18 shipping back to Corsair. Takes a week cross country. They'll burn at least 2 or 3 days. And a week back. I'll be down for 16 or 17 days!!!
Other Thoughts: With 1 in 6 units failing (per feedback right here), they have a serious quality problem. Even so, no offer to cross ship without payment. Or upgrade. Or apologize.
Got an RMA right away. But so far, Corsair has not responded to a separate support ticket request. Been 3 days, so their promise of 2 day response wasn't met.
In fact, it's possible they're dumping bad stock and having us customers suffer through the sorting of substandard parts.
There's a version 2 available, so are we all suckers for buying these?
If things continue to go poorly, I'll never be dealing with this company again. I strongly suggest you build downtime into your schedule for your new rig if you're using Corsair product.
