By Hardware Secrets Posted on June 15, 2011 850TX V2 wins award at Hardware Secrets "In this review, we discovered that the Corsair TX850 V2 is internally identical to the XFX PRO 850 W, and the only differences between the 850 W and the 750 W models are the use of more powerful switching transistors and one additional Schottky rectifier in the 850 W model. Although the TX850 V2 is nicely priced (USD 135 or USD 125 after mail-in rebate), the XFX PRO 850 W costs less (USD 120 or USD 110 after mail-in rebate). Since both power supplies are the same, right now it makes more sense to buy the model from XFX. Interestingly enough, the opposite occurs with the 750 W model; the TX750 V2 is a little cheaper than the XFX PRO 750 W. Who said, “Competition isn’t healthy?” " Full Review! By Overclockers Online Posted on April 26, 2011 VR Zone gives the 850TX V2 the "Editor's Choice award" "The Corsair 850TX V2 gets a rating of 9.7/10 and the VR-Zone Editor’s Choice April 2011 award". Full Review! By Hardware Heaven Posted on February 26, 2011 Hardware Heaven gives the 750TX V2 and 850TX V2 the Gold award "When it comes to the build quality and design of Corsair PSU's it is always very hard to find any fault and the TX V2 continues this trend. We get a lovely high quality finish on the unit and care has been taken to sleeve the wires well into the PSU where they are tied in place. Important components are all high quality and secured well inside with adhesive used where necessary and the spacious design allows for good airflow around the unit. We also noted that Corsair have taken the design to an extra level " Full Review!

By TechRadar Posted on November 5, 2011 Corsair TX850 V2 wins Silver award at Overclockers Club "The Corsair TX750 V2 750W and TX850 V2 850W are still very good power supplies and I'm sure they will still remain popular in the PC enthusiast community but I feel the performance could of been improved further second time around. The Corsiar V2 units did perform very well and are an improvement on their predecessors so they still come highly recommended and I have no hesitation in awarding them the OCC Silver award."

By TweakTown Posted on February 23, 2011 Kit Guru says the Corsair 850TX V2 is a Must Have "Performance is solid in all areas and we like the attention to detail.

By XSReview Posted on January 4, 2011 TweakTown reviews the Corsair TX850 V2 "Corsair has done a great job with the TX850V2. They took all of the good of the original TX850W and made most of the improvements needed to produce another rock solid power supply. While the TX850V2 produces solid numbers for voltages, noise, and efficiency" Full Review!
