Meh, looks the same as ftw to me. I go with whats cheaper and similar quality, last time I checked MDPC it would have cost me over $120 to sleeve my PSU. I got stuff from furryletters for $55.

Let's not stray away too far from the aim of this thread. All I want in this is beautiful pictures and advice on sleeving. I don't want a new fanboy jousting arena.

There does seem to be quite the controversy. All we want to do is offer a high-quality product at a fair price that people will like.

On a lighter note, here's a power supply I did not do, but had done for me back in 2009.







It was kind of neat. Partially modularized on the 4 pin IDE connectors for flexibility.



I swear. That's not pink. It's Superhero Powerblend by Techflex.



The longest 8 pin EPS cable I've ever seen. 35"









I didn't have a clue back then.

I still use that 4 wheel cart to this day. It still looks atrocious. Maybe one day I'll get around to fixing it up or getting a proper modding cart.

I don't really understany some of you...

There is one who brought sleeve to the PC word, he is the one who invented all the mazing new colors and he also offers you the best accessories you need for sleeving (e.g. heatshrink, crimps, plugs....)


Now some guys see his work and copy it...
They might be really good in copying and put a lot of work into it to get the same result BUT it is still only copying

(don't tell me it is not - I see the comparison of red and red ... this didn't happen by chance...)

While I understand where you are coming from, let's not romanticize this.

MDPC had a great run being the top dog for a long, long while. Like any other market, there is bound to be stiff competition; and I'm sure Nils is at least content that it took this long for a worthy rival to appear on the scene. However, this should not undermine what MDPC currently still brings to the table - they provide a varied selection of products with quick delivery service, particularly to European countries.

FTWPC is trying to offer a comparable product that will help service and benefit American consumers. I don't know about others, but I really don't want to have my prices vary based on the daily market value of the American dollar versus the Euro, and have to wait longer only to have my large order split up into multiple shipments.

If I made a mistake and ordered too little of something, I now have the comfort in knowing that I don't have to pay out the rear for shipping and can still receive my product in a timely manner. Case in point, I realized recently that I needed more heatshrink and a molex removal tool. My order was placed on Thursday (7/14/11), and by the looks of the tracking information, the package is ready to be delivered to my door today (7/16/11).

It's also worth mentioning that the guys who do run FTWPC are good people, and not some skeezy jerks trying to scam the unsuspecting for a quick buck. If I have a question or concern, they are only a PM, email, or forum post away. (Phone service is available, but I have yet to use it.)

Sure, MDPC may have been one of the true pioneers for the computer enthusiast sector, but let's try to look at this from the positive aspect: imitation is the greatest form of flattery, isn't it? Besides, (and I don't know how true may be, but) I can't imagine there are many other effective, high-quality weave patterns that perform as good as they look. So whether if you want to believe that this is just knock-off, or if this is actually just the best approach to creating a high quality sleeve, it's up for you to decide.

However, it is worth noting that since FTWPC has officially been shipping its "copied" product, MDPC has seemingly retaliated by putting up a sale on select colors. Even if you still only bought from MDPC, you can thank FTWPC for helping to stimulate better pricing, which we can now see is clearly feasible to still make some kind of profit. Make no mistake about it, competition is now underway and this will help to benefit the consumers' bottom dollars.

My wallet is both sad and happy at the exact same time.

Some folks are very angry that competition came to the market and try to bash, derate, or belittle other vendors or designers for similar products because they fear the competition.

That's the way of the market as everyone is human.
