I'm surprised you've had that many brand name bricks die on you. We use a combination of Lenovo and Dells at work (both typically use Delta bricks) and we RARELY have failures. In fact, a laptop...

Nope. It's accurate. That's not the review. I tried to find it but couldn't, but I recall the situation vividly. Perhaps it wasn't the first watercooled BFG, but the first "Thermo-Intelligence"...

Right. But look at what those PSUs are. 450W and below? At retail, that market is a commodity market controlled by price and catering to a mostly ignorant clientele. Vendors in that segment...

Philipus is right. It's not so much the manufacturing cost. It's the NRE. NRE can easily run into six digits. Obviously much higher if the OEM doesn't have an existing platform to build off of,...

I know of companies that can do large orders that Delta was still to expensive for.

You cursed me.

Last night the power went out. And while it was the sudden silence at 3:30AM that woke me up... It was all of the beeping UPSs that KEPT me up.
