    Hello Shadow, haven't seen you for a while.

    cardriver - Even the bad companies do things right more often than they screw it up. Asking us for our experiences is hit or miss. You will only get a snapshot of that one transaction. That snapshot may have been good or bad and not really provide a real picture of the company that you are considering.

    That is why I use resellerratings.com. It gives me a chance to see what a lot of other people think about a specific vender. Also keep in mind. Most people are more likely to fill out a survey when they have a problem. They are mad and are looking for a way to get even.

    Here are three links for companies (two are often mentioned on TZ). I have bought from all three (many times) and have never had a problem.

    http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1983.html

    http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1724.html This vender has almost no tech support which shows on the rating. It is not something that they are trying to hide, it is just not part of their business plan. Their tech support and return policies are clearly spelled out on the web page.

    The question on these ratings that I am most interested in is:
    Likelihood of Future Purchases

    That is the question and rating that tells you whether the company is taking care of business. Nothing is perfect. Your order may be the 1 bad out of 500 or 50. The best you can do is try to determine which company is the 1 in 500 and spend your money with them.

    Bottom line, based on the "Likelyhood of Future Purchases" rating for xoxide, I would buy from them.

    We are seeing new terminology associated with power supplies. It may vary for a while. I am sure that vendors and manufacturers will ultemately settle on verbage that will denote the quality of a given power supply. Recently I have seen the following:

    True 380 to denote the rating for a 380 W power supply.
    Intel and AMD certified.

    Both of the above discriptions are found on quality power supplies that are of higher quality and will cost more. Often, a lot more.

    When choosing a power supply, read closely. Also know that weight can also be use as a quality indicator. When choosing power supplies of equal ratings, more weight translates to higher quality.

    Their 430W seems good.

    I ordered their 430W unit UL . It is really quiet. As you said, the unit is quite heavy which could give a clue that it might be of nice quality. All in all I"M satisfied with the purchase.
