If any of them are 80+ certified then they're guaranteed in quality (reliability and power output) regardless of brand.

There are plenty of 80Plus certified PSUs which are mediocre quality at best.

Corsair, PC P&C, Seasonic, Antec. At any of the common power levels, you can practically always find one of these on sale or rebated.

Show me. With comprehensive load output data.
If a PSU can sustain 100% 12V+ rail load for 30minutes+ and output between 11.4V-12.6V (+/-5%) with 60mV ripple or less (120mV is the max. in ATX spec) then it's considered good in my book.

At what temperature? Corsairs and Antecs, for example, deliver their full rated outputs at 50 C., a fairly difficult standard to meet. Most others are rated for full output at 25 C., which means as they heat, you need to derate them (no more full output).
