        the price difference between the low end of branded psu's and generic units is soo small I just wouldn't take the risk.

                    At Aria it is about double the price, and they don't have the really cheap supplies. If you are building a system for around 100 paying 30+ on the PSU is a bit steep. Horses for courses, some PC's are low use, disposable or built to a very low budget so it is acceptable risk (and largely mitigated by the low power draw).

                    If however you are putting a cheap supply in something which is always on, regularly on unattended or has a high draw then you deserve what the gods of stupidity bring to your door
