    Having seen what a nightmare this comany is to deal with should something go wrong, I don't think I'd take the risk.

    Strange - Antec have a very good reputation, and their PSU have garnered high reviews as well.

    I have had the above PSU since last summer and not a problem of any description.

    Agreed, I've built systems around one of their signature PSUs, it's a thing of beauty!

    I'm sure the majority are fine, however the problems start when they're not. Then you enter a world of pain (at least, in my experience).

    Re: Antec opens up its new PSU

    that PSU looks clean but looks to small parts that are inside, the Flat transformer looks interesting (needs to be reviewed by some web sties mostly [Hardocp] as they are quite good at making PSU fail)

    i only used Thermaltake (Purepower or higher) so never had any exploding issues, i had one Smokeless issue thought, working but an component was at its or beyond its limit and was extremely hot but it clear PCB smoke very bad (smell you get when something has gone pop but in this case it was not popping was running Very hot but making the exploding component smell) 1 out of large number of psu's

    had lots issue with an Powered USB hubs but that was down to the Hub was diverting power into the ports as well as the Port that came From the Hub to the motherboard (was making the system unstable but that was the USB hub fault so others should be aware of Powered USB hubs that do that, this affects any PSU thought just the older purepower PSUs had an standby light that was Lit even when the power was off but the Powered USB hub was plugged in)

    the thermaltake 1000W PSU thats in my system has 2 500W PSUs in it (850W lower is just one PSU)

    I find that strange since we have one of the best services in the market. I mean there is surely a possibility of bad experience but that is not the case in general. Which country are you in?
