Been using my trusty Corsair HX620 (modular) since 2007! It's held up strong ever since. I love it. No reason to upgrade on all the components I have.

Cracking unit, i had the TPN750 Previous to my sig (HX1000) and before the TPN750 i had the TPN650, both solid units for a great price thumb.gif
Would have one again without doubt.

HX1000 here for about 18months, all good so far, not putting much strain on it lately but its seen some 3 way GPU action last year biggrin.gif

I had a PC Power & Cooling 1kw-SR just die on me after 5.5 years (figures, back then they had a 5 year warranty, not the 7 they have after 2008). That was in my "spare" PC. I was going to use that to keep my main rig running while I do a custom sleeve job on my 2 year old Enermax 85+ 950W PSU which is currently in my main rig.

After going round and round with PCP&C about the failed PSU, I just this morning ordered a new SeaSonic Platinum 1000 power supply, and will make 100% custom cables for it and sleeve it. Once that's done, I'll put brand new SeaSonic in my main rig, move the Enermax over to my wifes i5-2500k rig, and take her 4 month old Corsair TX750 power supply and put that in the spare PC.

So, basically:

1 - 1 day old
1 - 4 months old
1 - 2 years old
1 - 5.5 years old (works, but randomly shuts off now)

Ive had mine close to 4 years now. Its is still running strong so there is no reason to get a new one. I am also thinking about building a new rig so I will end up replacing it this summer for something with more wattage.

Yeah Antec units in general are great. Corsair isn't bad, but I've had those fail before.

Corsair TX 750 approx 4 years. I needed to replace the stock psu in a proprietary unit for a video card upgrade. (Was my first attempt at getting into PCs)
Since then I've gone all independent and still love this Corsair product. I'm sure my next one will be Corsair but a modular unit.

2+ years - until I upgrade components I have no reason to replace it.
