I had an antec tp650(CRAPPY PSU) but it was replaced via warranty due to power issue. But it took lots of time to deliver and within that time i have purchased corsair cx550(Link). Then, the retailer provided me Antec NE650M(Link). Now i am confused which one i should keep.

So, please experts help to choose better durable PSU.

LOL! True Power is not a "crappy PSU".

Antec sent the replacement or your local retailer took the replacement out of his stock? Because a NeoEco is a downgrade from a True Power or a CX550.

Probably, but my one gave me lots of pain and yes, truepower was out of stock and they have only this ne650m in bronze 650 variants.

I purchased it back in 2017. I didn't researched a lot about psu's and the retailer also hasn't other well known brand psu's. So, i purchased it.
Yeah... you bought someone's dusty old stock. That PSU was discontinued long before 2017. So it probably gave you problems because it was sitting in someone's hot, humid warehouse for 5 years and sold it to you for a "great deal".

I think we should keep true power aside now as it was gone and help me to choose between Antec NE650M and Corsair CX550. Which one will be better and should i keep for my rig?
