    My apologies, don't want to stir up a mess.

    Which section shall i post in? i'm not to familiar round these parts.

    EDIT: i placed it in the general hardware section, if this is acceptable, let me know, if not, just place it in the corresponding section. please change/move anything to fit the rules or the likings here.

    It's not a mess, but with 10 posts in which 4 or 5 you mention OCN that becomes a little 'suspicious'.

    Anyway we'd be pleased to see you post your guides here, please use the general hardware section for PSU related posts, thanks man.

    Of course of course, should i paraphrase, or simply copy and paste? (feel a bit o' lazy today).

    In fact, i think i'll just migrate some things here.

    Ugh.

    While I agree that having a large amount of choice is good for the market and the consumer there's a good reason people are buying Seasonic PSUs.

    They're better than the competition, often by a large margin.

    To compete with that requires better competition, or that consumer preferences migrate towards cheaper units at the cost of quality.

    Since the first has yet to happen in a large scale what you're advocating is essentially the second option.

    You haven't read anything iv'e posted, have you. stating a PSU maker or vendor that wins due in high sales or recommendations because purely of what is perceived as quality means that competition is in effect nearly null, not to mention it's splitting hairs.

    second option is to be more open.

    Your arguement is invalid regardless, seasonic DOES make some of the best PSUs out there, they didnt get there by cheap psus now did they? people recommend stuff for a reason.

    It's not a matter of perception, Seasonic are quite measurably better than the competition using whatever metric you prefer. Aside from price, obviously.

    It may not be readily apparent from most reviews but there's quite a lot of in-depth ones that do confirm that regulation, ripple, efficiency and rated power are second to none.

    You may argue that many of these things aren't strictly important for most users, I don't have an issue with that, but you can't say it's a matter of perception when something is measurably better.

    Quantum physics delves into the idea that our reality is whatever we perceive it to be. Meaning that it's only because we are observing this constructed reality that it continues to exist..

    it is a matter of perception, as in this context, is why people make the purchase, of what they choose.

    Quantum Physics does nothing of the sort, it relies on the most probable explanation of things we have no means to thrououghly investigate. This doesn't in anyway relate to PSU units which are easily observed for indications of quality and superiority as already mentioned.

    manufacturers such as Seasonic and channel well are the most popular choice, as an oem in the case of channel well, due to having the most robust and highest performing units in all kinds of tests and this really isn't up for debate, it's a fact. This is also why so many people go for their units, atleast in the context of harware enthusiasts and people who read reviews such as this one.

    It's got absolutely nothing to do with perception, but the simple fact that the best performing units happen to be seasonic currently, this is also why they are highly acclaimed.
