    Seasonic - would you buy one?

    Would you buy a new Seasonic branded PSU?

    Knowing that they don't exist anymore?

    I guess some shops have old stock...

    I would because I know they were quality when they were making them, so if there are a few sitting around there's no reason they wouldn't be solid. However, now that I'm replying, the question of customer support/RMA possibility enters my mind. Something to think about at least.

    Who said that Seasonic doesn't exist anymore? They are alive and still producing new PSUs under their own brand name and countless others:

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy one.

    Seasonic is the OEM for Corsair VX450, HX520/620 and TX650. That's all, and they're alive and kicking.

    Is seasonic better than Antec?

    Sorry if that is a dumb question, I have never used or researched them...

    No need for links to reviews or anything, just a general idea!

    I have a SeaSonic M-12 500 watt modular psu.
    I was skeptical at first (about modulars) but this unit blows away anything I've owned to date.
    Quiet, rock solid voltages, cables for things I don't even have yet.
    Even the connectors and sleeving is top of the line.

    They are worth every penny and then some....easily.
