Not a bad price for a nice psu. Nexus is really making me a believer in their products. Anyone know the OEM?

Not quite worth $100... The only real unique features here are APFC and the single +12V rail, but I don't think that justifies an added $30 over comparable 500W+ units.

Agreed, nothing about this PSU screams "worth $100", and a $100 500w power supply is definitely not targetting mainstream consumers, if that is who they were after they missed the target.

I can go and buy a 500w Modular power supply, with 80+ Certification, and AFPC for $70 from a reputable manufacturer. The only difference is instead of 1 41A 12v rail, it has 4x18A limitted to 475w total, or basically 40A spread around which ever way you prefer.
