Looking for MODULAR PSU

I'm looking for a MODULAR power supply between 600-750W.
Preferably full-modular, unless there's a great deal to be had.

Currently I'm eyeing three PSUs. Too bad I missed the boxing day deals (didn't think I'd need one :( )

XFX PRO750W XXX Edition

Corsair Professional HX650W

Thermaltake Smart M 750W
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=78950&vpn=SP-750M&manufac...

I've just unsure of Thermaltake when it comes to PSUs, although that PSU is the best value that I can find right now.
Also does anyone know if Corsair or XFX covers the costs of shipping PSUs back to the owner (RMAs)?

Out of those three the XFX is undoubtedly the best choice, better than the other two in multiple aspects.

The only thing that I can see which is clearly superior (without being much more expensive) is the Rosewill Capstone-650M ($110 @ Newegg)

Cost of shipping the PSU to the warranty service depot is paid by the customer (i.e. you).

Cost of shipping from the service depot back to the customer is paid by the warranty provider.

The warranty service depots all seem to be in the U.S.A.

Thanks for the input and recommendation. I'm definitely considering that Rosewill PSU, however I'm unsure of Rosewill and their level of service when it comes to RMAs. It's not just the PSU I'm looking for but the company behind it as well.

Also, there's quite a number of Corsair PSUs that I have not mentioned that are within a similar price range (CX, HX, TX).
How does Corsair compare to XFX? Other than the XFX and Rosewill, the only other option for me is to go with a Corsair.

Actually NZXT pays for shipping both ways plus they send you a replacement before they receive yours. Except I'm finding quite a number of negative comments about how them honoring RMAs. Basically I was just wondering if there are other companies that offer more than their peers if things were to go wrong with the product and it needed to be RMA'ed.
I had an Antec PSU that went dead before, was hoping for a quicker / better experience if anything was to occur in the future.

Best solution

Decided to grab the new ProSeries 750W Black Edition due to the one I originally had my eyes on going out of stock and discontinued. According to the only review I've seen on it so far (HardwareSercrets), this model seems to be in the 80+ Platinum level despite being rated as an 80+ Gold. Nevertheless it's a newer and more efficient, plus my local retailer has it on sale with a free XFX promo (Dirt Showdown). :)
