    I remember my Be Quiet DPP 650w being a bit pricey when I bought it.

    Mind you it's still going strong 8 years later and had a trip to and from NZ in the meantime so I think it was worth every penny.

    (The trip back wasn't thar gentle either going by the state of our shipping boxes..)
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Looks a very solid unit, typical be quiet quality. Its biggest problem is the popular EVGA SN G2/3 and Corsair RMX 550w models are £25 less and the Seasonic Focus Plus is £15 less and they come with 7 & 10 year warranties. Is it 33% better than those? Probably not.

    You would think it was at least quieter, but if those tests are right it is louder than its competitors most of the time.
