Corsair is simply expanding, like any successful company does. Look at ASUS, Coolermaster, EVGA, OCZ, etc. All of those companies have product lines outside of their core products, and there are plenty of other examples of that in the computer industry. As long as they can provide compelling products, I see no reason why they shouldn't branch out if they are interested in doing so and feel that they have something to offer to consumers.

I like to see Corsair offering some more affordable PSUs but I hope they keep their quality. I don't want to see a very respectable company tarnished by some crappy PSUs.

Agreed... too many products now. I really do hope they kill off some of their existing products to make space for this.
It's nice to have top to bottom covered for both modular + non-modular, but with too many products with little differentiation is not good.

That, and clean up their webpage. If the HX620 is a now discontinued part, move it to a 'legacy' page.

It was so much simpler with just HX for modular high end, and VX for non-modular low-to-mid end.

Yeah, I knew there was a reason a part of me was getting nervous. But least they're not branding it with some gamer's logo.

But if they can pull it off, awesome. Not everybody wants the cream of the crop, and it's always nice to have a wider variety of dependable PSU's to recommend to people on a budget.
