This is a stupid move. It seems that they waited until everyone caught onto the fad, and kept their patent tucked away until other PSU makers were in a legal ambush.

Not to say anything of any PSU makers' quality, but this is a tasteless, deceptive move by the company.

EDIT: I made that comment before reading through the pile of posts. None of us can know the full scope of the situation, but many suits LIKE this have come to be ploys to make money.

The patent was filed in 2004, but only granted in 2006.

United States Patent Number 7,133,293

Quote:
The present invention relates to power supplies and methods of installing power supplies. More particularly, one embodiment of the present invention relates to a power supply adapted for installation within a computer case for receiving AC current from an AC current source and providing DC current from the power supply to a component disposed inside of the computer case via a removable cable attached to the power supply, comprising: a housing having an interior volume defined by a top panel, a bottom panel and a plurality of side panels; AC to DC circuitry disposed within the interior volume of the housing; and a DC output socket, wherein the DC output socket is fixed to one of the top panel, bottom panel and side panels defining the interior volume in which the AC to DC circuitry is disposed; wherein the AC to DC circuitry receives AC current from the AC current source; wherein the AC to DC circuitry converts the received AC current into DC current and supplies the DC current to the DC output socket; and wherein the DC output socket is fixed to one of the panels of the housing in a position such that when the power supply is installed within the computer case the DC output socket is disposed inside of the computer case for mating with the removable cable.
Interesting stuff.

Thats what I thought!

Someone should remind Performance-Pcs to take down Ultra and become millionaires when they get a minute.

I just read through the patent, that may not be as easy as I previously thought. I tend to side with JohnnyGURU's side of the argument rather than mine now.

Laughably, about half of the patent deals with UV reactivity and gaudy lighting.

It is obvious that the concept was around long before Ultra decided to snatch it.

Sure, they were the first to patent it, but they did not come up with it.

IMO Ultra has very little of a case, and I hope Antec and the gang bury them in the desert. I am sure the big name manufactures saw this coming... or at least they should have.
