And some of the other brands make something better then some of the Cosair/Seasonic units but because they are not as well know or just because people like to buy a brand instead of researching what they actually buy before they just buy the brand because a million people has said hey buy this its the best thing ever made and that is pretty much what Apple does to people
Unlike Apple though, their reputations are pretty well deserved. Even if they aren't the absolute best
in a given market segment, their high-end offerings are consistently top tier with longer warranties than the industry standard. And both companies, Corsair especially, have a large international presence with great track records for customer support. Obviously that kind of peace of mind, on top of great performance is worth the premium to most people (and really, an extra 20-30 dollars is trivial).
Are there other great options out there? Sure! But until Corsair/SS start turning out duds or refuse to honor their warranties I can't blame anyone for recommending them.
This thread has hipster written all over it. Corsair and Seasonic are too mainstream, man!
