Apples vs Oranges there. The older VS650 was a very budget, relatively poor quality offering based on one of CWT's cheapest platforms. The modern CX450 is a quality yet affordable offering from Great Wall. The CX450-M is still CWT, but a better quality unit than the older VS650 used in the example.

Any of the CX or CX-M units from Corsair (2015 and 2017 models) are quality - although the CX's are a bit better than the CX-M's.
