Shame that this power supply doesn't use better components, especially for the price. There are much better units for the price out there. EVGA's GQ650 for $80 is a much better value, and I started using those after your review of it.

corsair offered 10 years warranty. Germany products need to step up the game.

To be fair, Corsair's entry-level CX and VS Series PSUs also come with a 3-year warranty.

bequiet!'s upper level PSUs (DarkPower, StraightPower, PowerZone) come with 5-year warranties.
