TX where the weather is always nice, it was -12 here yesterday. My spouse
and I were there on a job offer from a tech company we stayed at a hotel not
far from the home of the then retired GB the older, according to the bell
hop. The offer was financially generous but I refused to move from my
family. I never heard so much Spanish outside Spain, we are used to French.
$24 dollars and you think that's not cheap, say no more. Glad you got lucky.
What would you think the quality of a car would be brand new $5000 competing
with BMW Camary Malibu Civic or any car. Can you really make a good quality
car for 5000$ advertising 200HP would you buy or recommend it. You could
make one if you placed a fake car body over a lawn tractor then fudged the
power ratings to sell as a 200HP car. (AKA 600w PS) "make it cheap inside
and label it too good to be true outside they will come" Just have to look
the same as all the rest on the outside. Just like those 8$ 120w speakers
(2w laugh) There is no regulation on how power supplies makers advertise
wattage ratings to consumers. Keep in mind that with power supplies ALL come
from countries with 1$ a day labour. I have seen systems with too many power
demanding items used on cheap power supplies and sometimes the HDs don't
want to boot until you disconnect one or two drives. I had to replace 9 of
28 PS at a cybercafe last just week after an ice storm all were cheap 500w 2
ounce crap with exploded caps. They now have Enermax 365w and will last till
decommissioned BUT he would not listen and have all others replaced because
his buddy who did the assembly job (hospital) suggested his 500w junk PS
units were good and the cafe just had bad luck, pay me now or pay me later.
I suspect we soon will have that contract for good.
Good luck with those top of the line quality $24 power supplies, some people
