Hi there,

Great reviews here. My favorite by far is the Bargain Basement Roundup - I was laughing out loud through the entire review. I happen to be the (not so) proud owner of no less than 3 Deer-manufactured 300-350w PSUs, all rebranded by "Excellent X Power." Are there plans for future extreme low end PSU roundups? I'd be glad to permanently rent out one of my Deer units in the interest of finally seeing an explos - err... in the name of warning customers away, of course. The thing weighs like a pound, so I can't imagine I'd be gouged much for shipping. One has probably over 20,000 hours, but I'm sure at least one of the others has <1000.

I've thought about it now and then, but there are no immediate plans right now, sorry.

I'd suggest sending them to Wolf and let him blow it up at leisure. ;)

Are you planning on doing this any time in the future?

I have a lot of junk psu's lying around that I don't want anymore.

No one tests such cheap PSU...

It doesn't pay the bills.

Maybe not, but a review with lots of smoke and fireworks will get page hits though. :D Maybe a nice little vid clip of it happening.

If any of you ever want to do this, let me know as I have an original Ultra X-Connect I will donate to the BBQ.

Also good to send the link to someone stating

"ohh ya my powmax super crap-power 4000W runs just fine and only weighs 1 pound, and only cost $23.99 with $22.99 mail in rebate."
