80 Plus vs 80 Bronze certified?

I see a lot of power supplies that offer either a 80 Plus or a 80 Bronze certification. Both are rated at over 80% efficiency, most say they provide up to 85/87%.

I know Silver and GOld are higher quality, but is there a diff between 80 plus and 80 bronze?

    Nowadays there are three models that meet the 80 PLUS Platinum certification:
    - FSP FSP450-60PTM (450W)
    - Delta DPS-350W-115V (350W)
    - SuperFlower SF-550P14PE (550W)
