    If you have your own numbers then could you tell us the difference between for example a be quiet! Straight Power 11 with 5 years warranty and Corsair RMx with 10 years warranty.

    There are no big statistics on Straight Power 11. I have no discount. Replace with FSP OEM range. They work stably for 5 years in difficult conditions.
    Corsair RM is not used. Don't like fans and margin. Only HX&AX range. Mining - 1.5-2y, home&office >5y.

    Example. If 100,000h MTBF is claimed & 5y warranty then device reliability is in doubt.
    MTBF target is related to reliability, but you can't verify this number on actual products.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    I proposed my own assessment option. I agree that he has flaws. But my experience claims that such a method is beneficial when used in conjunction with other indicators. What is another simple and free (no money) option to assess reliability? Your suggestions?
