Reliability. I bought one a few years ago, had a five-year warranty but died after six months.

ya alot of guys are biased against them cuz they USED to put out crap psu's with no efficiency ratings

but now there are 1 or 2 types of thermaltake that are good...specificaklly their 80+ gold series that are used for servers and rendering computers.

but as a gaming psu i still dont recommend them....their tr2 psu's are terrible

dishonesty

at one point they were exposed by sending 1 model of a unit for testing but a totally different (read as crap) unit to the retail market

I agree with this fella since I'm running an 80+ Bronze (supposedly Silver, but Tt had it downgraded) Toughpower XT 675 PSU. I got it since it was getting agreeable reviews across the board and is readily available in my country. I would have gotten something better, just for the peace of mind, but the model i wanted wasn't at the store so I had to resort to the Tt Toughpower XT. Anyway, it has yet to fail me.
