2 Corsair Power Supplies in 4 months, need a more dependable brand recommended

So I've bought 2 HX 850 PSUs inside of 4 months now; 1 was DOA and the second imploded after 4 months. I got both from newegg, if that makes any difference (I'm not very good at keeping boxes/receipts, hence why 2). I'm just wanting to know if there is a really dependable PSU manufacturer so that I can avoid this annoyance for my 3rd one. I'm not asking for how much wattage/efficiency etc., I know how much juice I need; I just would like to hear what is the best PSU company out there for reliability, because this can't be it.

Corsiar AX are very high quality, HX has had issues.

As for best reliability use Seasonic and their rebrands such as XFX.

Unmatched 10 year warranty. There is no PSU that can match this performance with this price. This Supernova G2 is made on the LEADEX platform, by the reigning king of PSUs, SUPERFLOWER.
