As long as a CEO can personally benefit by out sourcing U.S. jobs for personal gain - they will.
This is the definition of financial greed. Look it up.
Unscrupulous CEOs will do whatever is best for them, not necessarily their company or the U.S. Then when all else fails they'll take their Platinum Parachute and leave for the next CEO position and pull the same crap over again.

Uh...our CEO is our company founder. He's been here since the company started in 1994, so it's not CEO greed that's driving our decisions.

I'm not saying we couldn't build PSUs in the US - there are plenty of things built here. But we wouldn't be competitive price-wise with guys being built over there. So unless you have a benefit to building in the US (shipping costs, materials exporting laws, time to market), for most products it makes a lot of sense to build in China.

I don't mean to make this political - and my views and opinions do not necessarily speak for Corsair as a whole - so I'll leave this conversation here before we get into too heavy a debate.

I will say this, though - I think everybody would love to see more manufacturing jobs in the US, and there's a lot of different opinions on how to make that happen.

I've used about eight different brands of psu's over the past few years for my own, and friend's builds.
Enermax, PCP&C, XFX, Antec, Seasonic and Corsair were some of them. The only psu I've ever had crap out was a Corsair TX750.
In all fairness to Corsair, any company can have a defective product, and I replaced the TX750 (it was a friend's build) with another Corsair, an HX850, at his request.
He chose not to rma the TX750, as he felt that shipping it back to Corsair wouldn't be worth it. If it was me, I would have sent it back, but it wasn't on my dime.

I have no idea what oem made the TX750, or the HX850 for that matter.
I tend to prefer Seasonic psu's for my personal use, and there is no question who the oem is.

As far as the monopoly conspiracy, I never really looked at it that way, but I suppose there is some merit to that.

Like it or not, US factories and workers don't have the flexibility offered by China.
See http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/22/business/apple-america-and-a-squeezed-middle-class.html for an example. It's about Apple, but it illustrates how Chinese manufacturing operates.

The Original TX750 OEM was CWT (Channel Well) the TX750 V2 OEM is Seasonic.
And you are correct all companies have DOA/Defective parts, nothing is perfect but getting another Corasir proves that things happens and apparently the replacement works fine.

I also agree, I would have sent it back lol

thumb.gifSuperb article. An excellent read thumb.gif

Having lived the past 59 years in north-east ohio [auto mfgs] --- have seen 1st hand the absolute loss
of mental capacities to make proper logistical decisions. Allowing a supplier six months to ramp up
a 1/2" change to a rear view mirror.......downright ignorant. It's a disgrace this country's pizzed away
the potential for so much better. Guess we deserve opening up those "made in China" boxes.
