Well there's 2 reasons why I'm still sorta considering it. JonnyGuru's review of it is comparable to the Antec and Corsair PSU's (not as good in some areas, but not by much to what I can tell). That's the main reason I'm looking for more feedback, just to really know for sure If the Ultra PSU is actually comparable to the others. The LSX is about $20-25 cheaper than the other PSU's at current prices and has the 'very appealing' Lifetime Warranty. Now who's to say Ultra will still be making PSU's for the foreseeable future and or even 5 years from now? Idk... (Both Antec and Corsair have a 5 year warranty). That's where I'm at lol.

Both the antec tpn and the corsair V2 have seasonic as their oem. I would just go with either of those units. You won't regret either.

Having a seasonic psu is like having a lifetime warranty! Besides, the 20 dollars you'd be saving is really minimal in the long run. Go big or go home

Ultra is a terrible brand, as a whole.

However, the LSX 750W did well in testing.

Still, I don't trust them to keep quality consistent, and they are known to sell multiple power supplies under the same name. I'd really rather not support them.

The Antec TP-750 is the best one of the three in terms of performance and features and it's what I'd pick. The TX750 is a little dated, unless you mean the TX750v2, in which case it's as good as the TP-750, but not modular like the Antec is.

I just had a TP 650 die after a month of use. Antecs are supposed to make good units but I've had two psu's die on me, and both were antecs. The recent tp650 and an ea430(I think?). It was some low wattage antec earthwatt, anyway.

My personal experience fwiw

Yeah I've had those feelings overall. Newegg restocked there supply of the Antec TruePower New 750, but is at $110 now instead of $100. Thanks for your input!

Yeah I've been looking at the V2 of the Corsair. I accidentally messed up on the Poll, and am not sure how to edit it lol. I agree with you In saying that Ultra isn't trustworthy currently given there past, even if they have finally produced a good PSU. But if no one ends up buying there updated, quality PSU's, then they won't have much reason to continue making them. I guess I'm saying that they need to start somewhere . I think there Lifetime Warranty will be the thing that pulls them out of the sinking sand in the end and maybe set them on the right course. Thanks very much for your advice!

That's very unfortunate to hear, even if it was there lower PSU's. I don't know much about older TruePower PSU's, but the TP New should have better quality backing it up with a 5 year warranty. Gives me some piece of mind.
