Corsair is just one of those companies where anyone asks 'Hey, what brand of (computer part) do you recommend'?, I always include Corsair, which goes to show the trust I have in them. Obviously, with every brand, there are hits and misses, but thankfully most of the time Corsair is a hit
I have used Corsair products in most of my builds in the past 10 years. They present some of the best quality and attention to detail with their products. I mainly use the RAM, but the PSU's are outstanding and leave others in the dust.
What comes to mind is excellent RAM and Cases. I own the best case in this world the Obsidian 800D!
Not a lot of people are aware that Corsair makes other great products such as PSU (4 lines Professional, Enthusiast and Gamer and Builder series). They also make SSD, Flash drives, audio, gaming peripherals.
Corsair customer support rocks, this is an area in which better marketign could improve the perception. Example.- Everyone knows that EVGA products (some of them) have a limited lifetime warranty and they stand behind it.
One way to improve the understanding of the product lines and service is to "host" knowledge parties, etc.
I finally was able to get a Corsair case(600t) because the 800D was just to big for my needs and I love it! It made for the cleanest looking case I have put together to date with minimal effort. After I built one for myself I talked my dad into upgrading his computer and built one for him. I heard the customer service is great but I dont know cause of all the memory and PSU's over the years I've had I have never had a problem!
I remember a time when Corsair only sold memory. The thing was, you could trust it absolutely. If I was building a machine for a gamer, for a business, for a friend, I never had to worry that the RAM would have issues, or even perform well- it always blew expectations out of the water. When I got into overclocking, it became even more apparent how incredible Corsair was. I've never had my memory have any problems, and since 2004 I have never bought anything but Corsair memory. As for the rest of their products- they are equally amazing, and I've never hesitated to buy them because aside from their obviously brilliant design, Corsair does something that is rare in this industry. They design for perfection rather than designing to just meet expectations.
And yes, I lurk. But I have lurked for so long now, I feel like I own part of the place.
Corsair has the best customer service I have ever dealt with. The products are top quality while still priced extremely well for the market. Best company out there for sure!! It would be a dream to give one of these systems to my fiance for our anniversary.
