Why not? Are they not a good product?

You're missing the point, the Fan-boys are basically like ''GET A CORSAIR THEYRE THE BEST THEY BEAT ANYTHING THEY ARE GODS OF PSU MAKERS IF YOU DONT GET A CORSAIR YOUR A NAB''.

Dont get me wrong, Corsairs are great, but there are sometimes MUCH better alternatives for aorund the same price as the Corsair unit in question.

They are, it's just that there's almost always a better PSU for the price.

It's like if someone would recommend a GTS 250 over a 5770 if they were the same price. (And obviously the GTS 250 is Corsair in this analogy, and the 5770 is something else.)

Edit: like GameBoy said, this isn't a club against Corsair, it's a club against the people who continually recommend Corsair power supplies and have no real knowledge on the matter.

They might not be "the best" in every aspect but you cannot deny they do produce fantastic products. And they're certainly up there.

But answer me this, if you had two PSU's, why would anybody pick the inferior one if they were both the same price?

What sorts of things make one PSU better than say a Corsair model?

Knowledge that one product is known and proven to be reliable and good at what it does. Let me bang out a funky analogy. We had the choice of a Peugoet Estate or a VW Passat estate for roughly the same price. The Peugoet was the Executive model, so it had every extra. This made it, on paper, a better product than the VW, which was was not quite top of the range. However, we chose the latter car because of VW's good history in making solid vehicles. Sure, we could have got more for our money, but the VW offered enough and the reviews, happy owners and history made it a better choice.

Volgate regulation, Ripple supression, better quality components, effeciency etc.

Edit: And as a side note, i HAVE a Corsair PSU, so if we were hating on Corsair, it wouldn't make sense for me to own one of their PSU's, like i said, Corsair is great, but they're not the best.

Higher efficiency, less voltage ripple and electrical noise, better voltage regulation, better cabling system...

Take your PSU for example: the TX650 is a bit more or less (depending on where you get it from) but your PSU outperforms that in every aspect, and has a modular (well, sorta modular at least) cabling system.

Your PSU is a better performer than the HX650 too; it's just that the HX650's modular cabling system is much, much, much better.
