Quality Rosewill Unit

* Rosewill Green (excluding 700 W)
* Rosewill Capstone
* Rosewill HIVE
* Rosewill Lightning

Rosewill don't make PSU, they hire OEM to do it. Some of Rosewill PSU is crap because they hire crappy OEM. Above units are from ATNG, OCZ, and SuperFlower.

I am aware that many Rosewill PSUs(I am referring to the retail product by this, not the OEM.) may be decent quality. But to say a certain retailer brand is good because of their high quality products without mention of the quality of the lower price-bracket items would be somewhat misleading. Generally people will try to buy items at an affordable price. Because they have heard that the company isn't bad anymore, they might buy certain components without much knowledge about the item in question. Since they believe that the company makes quality components, surely all products must be high quality?

Anyway this isn't directed at anyone. I just thought I'd post that since the first page had a lot of talk about the quality of the higher-tier PSUs, but no mention of the lower-tier at all.

It's old timer facts. Back in my day rosewill was the plague, and OCZ was pretty good, so was PCP+C. Antec was godly, Corsair just entered the picture, seasonic is still godly. Thermaltake was doin good a ltitle bit.

And then raidmax. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Stuff like that tongue.gif
