Default Sending crap PSUs for review

Hi there,

Great reviews here. My favorite by far is the Bargain Basement Roundup - I was laughing out loud through the entire review. I happen to be the (not so) proud owner of no less than 3 Deer-manufactured 300-350w PSUs, all rebranded by "Excellent X Power." Are there plans for future extreme low end PSU roundups? I'd be glad to permanently rent out one of my Deer units in the interest of finally seeing an explos - err... in the name of warning customers away, of course. The thing weighs like a pound, so I can't imagine I'd be gouged much for shipping. One has probably over 20,000 hours, but I'm sure at least one of the others has <1000.

I've thought about it now and then, but there are no immediate plans right now, sorry.

I'd suggest sending them to Wolf and let him blow it up at leisure.

Are you planning on doing this any time in the future?

I have a lot of junk psu's lying around that I don't want anymore.

Maybe not, but a review with lots of smoke and fireworks will get page hits though. Maybe a nice little vid clip of it happening.

If any of you ever want to do this, let me know as I have an original Ultra X-Connect I will donate to the BBQ.

Also good to send the link to someone stating

"ohh ya my powmax super crap-power 4000W runs just fine and only weighs 1 pound, and only cost $23.99 with $22.99 mail in rebate."
