Default Any experience with this PSU?

I was looking at high efficiency PSUs when I came across this 80+ Gold Sentey 650w. I couldn't find any reviews on this particular model, but the 850w version has gotten very good reviews from hardwaresecrets and jonnyguru. Is it safe to assume that if Sentey makes a sweet 850w then their 650w should be of the same quality?

I realize that Seasonic currently offers their 80+ Gold 650w for only $15 more and they are a more established quality PSU manufacturer, this is just a question that I'm really curious about.

Yes they are manufactured by SuperFlower and they are excellent. Jonnyguru reviews them from time to time and they always score high. Might also want to look at the Antec green series. Also Pc Power and Cooling makes some nice 80+ gold units.

Don't assume theyre the same. Alot of companys switch manufactuers when they get to certain wattage.

According to this site all of Sentey's PSUs are manufactured by SuperFlower, I had just never heard of the company before.

That is correct they all are. Also like I said I see them reviewed from time to time and they always rate well. Plus the 7 yr warranty speaks a lot to their durability.

Warranty is only as good as long as the business is in existence.
