Default Ultra PSU

i know, i know...im going to get a bunch of people saying don't get it because Ultra sucks either way you look at it. But i have a few friends who have them and they have no problems once so ever.

anyway, this is the one im looking at.

Ultra 550w X2-Connect
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...350&CatId=2036

For the price it's in the same range as the Antec NeoHe's and well, actually i think the Ultra looks nicer when set up properly. I don't think the Ultra is that bad. It has a dual 12v rail. Running at 35 amps. Sata ready and all.

So what's really so bad about this PSU?

They are generic PSU's put in a nice casing to make people think they are good, but along with all generic PSU's they are known to take out hardware and die earlier than quality PSU's.

Yeah, the same goes for Powmax PSUs, but you wouldn't put one of those in a nice PC, now would ya?
