Perhaps we should rethink the component that Corsair is best know for as [H]ard|OCP points out that they currently have seven families of PSU on the market right now.  They mention that fact when starting out their review of the Corsair Enthusiast Series Modular TX550M and TX750M PSUs.  They passed the PSU torture tests with flying colours but still feel short of an award due to pricing.  With so much competition in the PSU market right now it is not enough for a PSU to provide solid power, it must also be priced similarly to the competition.
