    Man, even it's true, you are talking too straightforward

    Wonder how antec rep reacts when he read this post

    Thanks!
    Don't think that I was very happy and willing to defend antec, we had a lot of extra work to do because of the 2006 produced Smart Power .
    We didn't experienced trouble with other antec models, hopefully will stay like that.
    But what worries me more is the attitude of Ante"crep" there, that guy deserves to be fired.

    Looks like I'm going to have to find myself one to take apart!

    EDIT: I can't see the UL, but I now see the "w/ Noise Killer" sticker on one at Newegg so I now know that is in fact FSP. Interesting.
    jonny, short memories, heh?
    I have two Basiq 350 at work, unfortunately I can't opened them because I'll void the warranty, but UL number is from Antec.

    No. I just never revisted the thread. Newegg didn't carry the Basiq's back then either so I had no close up photos.

    For whatever reason, Antec felt the need to ship the cheap stuff to the EU before it was made available here.

    But can that solely tell you they'll perform better or is that just a good initial indication?

    I don't think they perform any better or worse. I think the problem is just with longevity. Im sure the vast majority of them will out live their 5 year warranties, but not much past that and someone that uses one for really heavy battle in a harsh environment may have one die in a couple years.

    who was that?

    doesnt say where this french data is coming from anyway. as said before how many rma were actually valid. where is all the other brands....is that all they sell? 3% is pretty ok in my book.

    most important is how many psu died and took the pc with it........

    I personally like the ad for Antec on Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antec

    I was rolling on the floor in tears by the time I got to this part:

    "The Antec Aria case, a small Micro-ATX case with a single drive bay, is labeled AΓIA on its front face, on its box, and in the documentation. To speakers of Greek, this happens to read as the word "agia" which means "holy" or "saint"."

    And then the icing on the cake....

    "Tom's Hardware Readers' Choice Awards 2004 — names Antec as Best Power Supply Manufacturer"
