I suppose we need an OEM thread, to identify not only Seasonics but Deltas. I see the occasional Delta among branded PSU's, for example. Seems I was always running into them when I took apart dead Dells.

Delta is the largest OEM in the world so i am not surprised

Also a thread that shows every OEM for every brand and model would be flatout impossible

In the end you are only making yourself look ignorant (or stupid) or worse a fanboy so stop with the Seasonic is best in the world hype already

No Seasonic is not bad but they have messed up in the part and they are human so they dont deserve all the hype they get

In fact i feel they sell more on their name then on PSU quality which is not just wrong but dangerous

Enough rant




@shilka,
We very much appreciate the support provided by our customers even though we have had our missteps in our long history, we are, in the end, human. Nevertheless, we try our best to minimize these mistakes and we thank our supporters for staying with us, continuing to believe in us and trusting our products to power their valuable systems. Even the greatest companies of our times haves their ups and downs but what is important is how we resolve our issues and how we support our customers who were negatively affected, and to that, I hope we have not come up short.

The bulk of our budget is put into product design, development and manufacturing as this has been and always will be, our core identity. Sea Sonic was founded by engineers and to this day, it is led by engineers. The amount of money spent on marketing is in fact, very small compared to that of our total budget and compared to that of partners' and competitors' marketing budgets. Much of our support derives from word of mouth and recommendations such as from the supporters in this forum.

There are many facets to our business and can easily be misunderstood. I have had multiple discussions with Phaedrus in the past years and I think we now have a very clear and excellent understanding of each other's positions and see eye to eye. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me anytime and I will do my best to clarify any issues you may have. -- Thank you.

Buy becuase of how good it is and its quality not its name

Thank you very much for the clarification shilka.

There are numerous brands in the market and it is a very competitive market for price, technology, performance and availability. A "name" is often built up through years of delivering quality and high performance products.

It is always nice when informed buyers purchase our products as that validates our position in the market. But there are people who do purchase based on name recognition alone and to say the least, there are many PSU brands in the market far more famous than ours, so whatever business we can garner, we are happy to have and fully appreciate and we hope that even though the initial purchase decision was based on name recognition, eventually our product's performance or our company's support will show that we are more than just a name.

If something is good i will like it and recommend no matter who the brand and OEM is

I like to think i am a fair person if its good its worth recommending

If its not good its not worth recommending end of story

Had high hope for the NZXT HALE 82 V2 but it is a huge disappointment

Looking forward to the new Seasonic M12 II Bronze Evo Edition hitting stores i know i will recommend it over the HALE 82 V2 any day of the week

Thank you very much. We appreciate people who can provide unbiased information on products as this benefits the manufacturer and the consumer. In this way, we can take note of our shortcomings which we may have overlooked and we will try to improve.

Our company is fairly simple, we only make one product, power supplies and we hope to be as good as we can in what we do. But sometimes when you do the one thing every single day, for so many years.... it is easy to overlook or miss something.....

You know you have already done far more then any other hardware rep here on OCN

Almost forgot CM Phaedrus does a very good job as well (sory almost forgot you Phaedrus)

The NZXT and Rosewill threads had their OCN reps respond but not to this level

Think that everyone else should have a look at you and see how its done

One tiny little aspect of what Seasonic does makes my life easier. I regularly use four Seasonic PSU's -- two on our main machines, one fanless unit to provide power to my fan-testing rig, and one to provide power to systems I install when I test cases.

 

Having the non-ATX24 cables interchangeable life so much easier than it might be.

 

And I thank some tech at Seasonic who warned me that my new PSU would have different ATX24 cable assignments from my earlier units.
