SeaSonic announced price increases for its entire product lineup in the US market, effective December 1st. The price increases are in response to increased import tariffs for electronics goods from China. The increases appear to be in the range of 5 to 10 percent over current MSRPs for the higher-range products, and up to 20 percent higher for some of the lower-end ones. Below is a statement from SeaSonic, followed by its revised price-list:
Effective 01 December 2018, Sea Sonic USA is to increase the MSRP for all power supplies manufactured in China and destined for the US market. This is the result of recent market developments, but all orders placed prior to this date shall follow current pricing. SeaSonic strives to be transparent and forthright with its partners and consumers. We thank you in advance for your understanding as our priority is to continue providing cost-effective solutions to all our customers. The situation is dynamic and necessary adjustments will be made accordingly. We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to continuing our partnership well into the future.
