New Corsair 500R White. A Few Problems. - Page 10

post #91 of 95
The filter was put on the white one for cosmetic purposes, because without it you could see too much of the white paint through the top panel and it looked really goofy.

For those of you guys with bad standoffs, send me an email: redbeard@corsair.com with your contact info.

There's no reason you should have a damaged product and we'll gladly replace it.

Made in China...

I live in China, and I've heard of horrendous conditions in some of the factories that make for example apple products.

If you pay someone 1 dollar a day to work like a robot, the end product won't be flawless.

Not saying corsair pays them so little, but there's definitely some smug factory manager/owner in charge of these corsair factories in China who doesn't give a damn about the quality of the corsair cases he is producing.

So many people having issues with these corsair cases means someone needs to be fired, workers need to be paid more or more quality control is needed. I mean actual QUALITY control... not some 19 year old chinese guy who hasn't the first idea what the finished product is even supposed to look like, and who likely has never even ever owned a computer. (and yes that's a double negative, but i'm emphasising that I bet there's no quality control going on at all here by the standards of what we the consumer would expect).

Corsair like 99% of companies is driven by profit margins hence why it's made in China in the first place. Aren't there any computer brands that make things in the western world where standards are higher?

I'll still try a 300r, but only because it's so cheap that i'll just throw it away if it's malformed or defective. But i won't buy another corsair product if that occurs.

Trouble is the labor costs and then the final product cost would be too highly priced for most compared to their Chinese equivalents.  Therefore for people to purchase them they have to sacrifice their beer habits tongue.gif biggrin.gif in order to save money to afford them.

Could be offset by advertising the 'made in the USA' quality of it.

But come on corsair, after currency conversion, all of your products are 30% higher or more in price for me to buy from any supplier here in China (i use Newegg china as source for this compared to Newegg USA) despite them being made in China.

Photo worth a thousand words... same exact case, made in China, costs 46$ more in China, you do the math:

337

Is the teleportation of these heavy steel cases to the USA from China completely free?

Corsair, you have your products made in China to save on costs, then charge Chinese people a 34% premium for all of your products (yes, you might not set prices here but you surely can recommend pricing schemes). This pricing scheme is corrupt and since it is universal to all of your products and all suppliers i suspect some kind of price gouging here to cover the costs of shipping your cases to the USA/western world. It's quite sickening.

I'll guarantee you that we cannot control what Newegg decides to price our cases for over there. I don't even know for a fact that Newegg buys inventory and maintains it in China - for all I know, the parts on Newegg.cn are shipped from China to Newegg US, and then Newegg ships them back to China themselves.

I honestly haven't looked into it, but we're not setting out to gouge the Chinese fans and customers - I'll talk to our regional sales director and find out how the pricing schemes work over there. Very different market.
