Components returns rates (5)
by Marc Prieur
Published on November 16, 2011

Power supplies

- Antec 0.7% (as against 1.0%)
- Seasonic 1.2% (as against 1.3%)
- CoolerMaster 1.4% (as against 1.0%)
- Akasa 1.8% (as against 1.6%)
- Thermaltake 1.9% (as against 2.3%)
- Corsair 2.3% (as against 1.4%)
- Fortron / FSP Group 4.9% (as against 2.0%) (0.6% without the Blue Storm Bronze 500)

Antec retains the lead thanks to a reduction in returns while CoolerMaster, previously co-leader, has seen its rates go up. They are nevertheless still very reasonable, as are those for all the manufacturers, with the exception of Fortron / FSP Group. Their poor rates are in fact linked to the poor performance of one product in particular and if we don't include the stats for that model (Blue Storm Bronze 500), the Fortron rate drops to just 0.6%.

Only two models have a returns rate of over 5%, the Fortron Blue Storm Bronze 500 (previously mentioned) with a rate of 16.59% (!) and the Corsair VX550W with 6.48%.

Looking at the 400-450W models, we get the following classification: Corsair CX430
- 1.39% Corsair VX450W
- 0.93% Antec Neo ECO 400C
- 0.83% Seasonic X-400 Fanless
- 0.49% Antec Neo ECO 450
- 0.40% Cooler Master Elite Power 400W
- 0.36% Antec Neo ECO 400
- 0.31% Fortron FSP400-60GhN
- 0.00% Antec High Current Gamer 400
- 0.00% Antec EarthWatts EA430 Green
- 0.00% Antec BasiqPower BP430
- 0.00% Antec Neo ECO 450C

Then for the 500-550W models:

- 16.59% Fortron Blue Storm Bronze 500
- 6.84% Corsair VX550W
- 1.98% Fortron Everest 85PLUS 500
- 1.97% Cooler Master Real Power M520
- 1.91% Akasa Essential Plus 550
- 1.89% Antec High Current Gamer 520
- 1.69% Corsair CX500
- 1.65% Cooler Master Silent Pro M500
- 1.38% Cooler Master GX 550W
- 0.77% Antec EarthWatts EA500 Green
- 0.67% Antec BasiqPower BP500U-EC
- 0.52% Antec Neo ECO 520C
- 0.28% Antec Neo ECO 520
- 0.00% Seasonic M12II-520
- 0.00% Seasonic S12II-520
