It's POWER FACTOR CORRECTION

Power factor is the ratio of true power (watts) divided by apparent power (volts x amps or VA). A standard power supply has a power factor of 0.70-0.75, while a power supply with active power factor correction (PFC) has a power factor of 0.95-0.99. A power supply with power factor correction is better able to convert the current into power. This results in lower peak current and lower harmonic current, putting less stress on wiring, circuit breakers, and transformers.

how is this PSU from Zipzoomfly for $90 (and then a $30 mail-in-rebate to make it $60) instead of the FSP?...
