Default Corsair Power Supply Survey

Just received an email from Corsair.

It seems like they are conducting a survey regarding current industry trends and what people will be looking for in a power supply.

Fill it out when you have a few minutes:

I'm hoping Corsair can produce some good modular PSUs that are affordable. Something along the lines of OCZ's ModXStream Pro line price wise but with the awesomeness Corsair has become known for.

Done like dinner. That's a refreshingly short survey that just gets to the point.

You can't put a price on good quality tho.

I'm still glad I dropped the cash I did on my PC P&P 750w a year go because I know it will still power MOST video cards and modular seems to always cost more in the end for some strange reason; perhaps more work involved to make it modular.

My Thermaltake toughpower 750 modular has been like a rock, ran HD3870s crossfire with out a blink. I have seriously though of upgrading and the HX1000 is a contender for sure. Cost is important I don't have unlimited funds, but I would rather pay a bit more for quality then for a hunk of crap.

HC sure loved the HX hehe.

Ditto, some are equally important so I must decide what is the worst thing. It's like telling what taste the best between a cheesecake, a chocolate cake, a apple pie, a citrus meringue and a banana split.

They should do the ranking differently, it appears as if it were a 5 point rating for each. I work with zoomarang quite a bit and the best way to do it is a number (1-5) typed in a text box and have spss do the work. They should also have some demos in there to segment us into entry level, mid range and power users to split the results. Ugh I have problems, cant resist analyzing all surveys lol.
