Not everyday that you see a company underrate it's product for so much. Still, £100 for a bronze rated 850watt would seem a little much to me. £100 for a gold rated 850 watt...that's a bargain and a half.

Be worried that your Bronze rated PSU was over-performing when it came to efficiency?

I used to buy Silverpower alot when the majority of systems only needed 400-500w. Very underated company imo, and not one to blow their own trumpet. Decent pricing verging on budget.

... gorilla ... what were they thinking ??

I was just going to comment on price, with something to the effect of "Corsair are about the same price and I've been buying their 750w+ for a while now..." Until I went to the Scan website. The Corsair Enthusiast is about the same price - but when the fudge was the AX850 £145+ ??? I never paid £145!

Really fantastic performer and for that price it is an amazing deal. It should really be labelled as a Silver rated PSU given how efficient it is !!!
