    I don't see the profit margin off of 1500 PSU's keeping a company like BFG in business for long. I sure hope they know what they are doing, but this doesn't look good.

    Let me rephrase... I have 1500 EX-1000's that don't have to go to Best Buy that can go to etail. We also still have GS, GX and some new products coming in. I never implied that ALL we have is 1500 EX-1000's.

    Jesus people... this was a joke. Mockingbird is a member that, in another forum thread, said that BFG, Evga and XFX were all companies that changed their name from something else in order to avoid dealing with warranties. Of course, he's mistaken on all three and this was pointed out to him.

    Does the winky mean nothing these days?

    Yes, I PM'd him about that and some other thing. I normally get these, but since the BFG announcement, I'm in no mood for jokes. Sorry.

    That's what I get for taking things literally. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    It wasnt just the warranties they were squirming out of, it was also those outrageous rebates they offered.

    Would it be too much to ask that they update their damn website and let people know they're closing up shop. Call me crazy but isn't this what reputable companies usually do?
