Default Corsair Builder Series Psu quality

The Corsair Builder Series CX430, CX500 and CX600 psu.

I know Corsair makes good psu, but what about these ones here, I've been trying to find some reviews on them but couldn't really find much info on it. These things only have a 2 year warranty compared to others tx-hx models which are 5-7yrs. Which make me think these are pretty low quality units.

So, I guess my questions are:
1)What is the build quality and reliability of these psu?
2)Would you recommend these psu to people?

There not as good as the other power supplies from Corsair but I'm confident that they are more reliable than a Ultra or any of the cheaper known manufacturers.

I have the older CX 400 watt model, and from I can remember;
1. quality is great, CWT OEM, voltage regulation is superb, low ripple too. low noise too!
2. definitely.
