    Default Any word about Insignia brand PSUs?

    So, my friend mentioned he has this NS-PCW4050 from Insignia:
    http://www.insigniaproducts.com/prod...S-PCW4050.html

    It does have a six-pin PCI-e connector, but I am having doubts on this compared to the more established competition.

    Insignia is a Best Buy Store brand...just like Rocketfish and Dynex

    that PSU doesn't even have Active PFC, I bet it is a piece of crap Huntkey just like this Dynex

    note that not only was the PSU not able to provide 400W of power, it also destroyed some of their equipment

    Wow. Shitty.

    That's a Huntkey 300W w/o PFC.

    I thought they stopped making/selling those five years ago.

    $39.99? What a rip off.

    Well if only the Hexa was available at my friend's place, I'd definitely vouch that for him.
