I think he was referring to this:
Newegg.com - XCLIO GREATPOWER X14S4P3 550W ATX12V 550W Power Supply 100-240V / 200-240V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail

Here are some I'd personally recommend, though they are noticeably more expensive than that:
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40°C Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, cUL, CE, CB, TUV - Retail
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

I know how to recognize a good power supply based on stats... but finding one from a good brand that won't give out in four months is out of my class. As someone said, check the Power Supply Guide Sticky to get a general idea of good brands.

Quality of Components, the better the quality the more stable the power output will be. The less ripples in voltages and amperage and the less likely that the power supply will die, and if it does, the less likely it will take other parts with it.

i run the xtreme 750

i've had absolutely no problems...you cant make a claim that a product is worthless until you've actually used it and had major problems out of it.

i think they are great PSU's for the money. mine is everything i need it to be and more.

i think alot of the prices are for the higher end name brands, when the internals are the same on a 50 PSU.

i think you mean "forum bandwagon"

and how it is skimping? mine is perfectly fine..the internals of a PSU aren't going to be any different from model to model. they are all made in teh same chinese plant and imported with different names.
