Default PSU Weight

I heard somewhere that if a PSU does not weigh alot then it is a bad PSU. Is this true always, sometimes, or just never?

Generally, if a PSU has more weight, then that means they used high quality parts, so its usually better. Not all heavy PSU's are better than light ones, but it ususally holds true.
