Jeantech PSUs?

i've been looking at grabbing a PSU recently, with a price range of give or take £70 and anything from 500 to 800 watts. the noise is a secondary concern to reliability tbh. the jeantech storm has caught my eye, and i was wondering if any of you had any experience with them and could share a bit of knowledge it would be much appreciated

link (the cheapest one i've found)

I'm not sure what they are like these days, but i wouldn't touch one with a 10ft bargepole based on what they were like a few years ago.

Sounds like not much has changed then

Put it this way...if you can buy it at PC World, it's probably not worth buying.

Cooler Master Real Power Pro is a very well build/performing PSU.
