    The upper right one is True Power New. The one at the lower left... layout is unusual, I guess it's the latest X-series.

    Interesting. One of the less impressive PSU factories I've seen. I would've expected more from a brand like Seasonic.

    They do more QC than I figured. Is that something representative of the smaller manufacturers, or do larger companies like Delta and Andyson go through and test every unit sent out at multiple times during the manufacturing process?

    Andyson isn't a larger company.
    How many tests every unit must go thru depends on your requirement.

    My bad, Andyson was a bad choice. I have a knack for being wrong

    Do smaller companies like Seasonic need more QC checks because of less automation or is it just to live up to a higher quality standard? Do most manufacturers test every unit that goes out the door, or do some go with random sampling? I'm sure there's plenty of variability depending on who the manufacturer is making PSUs for or which model they are working on. I was just trying to get a sense of how the manufacturers stack up against each other with quality control and level of testing.

    ^^ Look on his youtube, he has some videos of what I suspect is Andyson's factory, they use automatic machines to put everything on the pcb's.

    Some procedures like Ongoing Reliability Test are run on certain number of samples in every batch.
