They are priced pretty competitively, and the review gave them no flaws aside from fan noise (though I've found my way about modding PSU's with better and quieter fans - shhh in case Mother Warranty hears).

My only gripe would be that they're not modular.

Another great PSU Review Paul!

I finally got sometime today to check out and catch up on all of our Reviews!
I am actually recommending this PSU to a friend who is buying parts for a new build.
