Any one got good information on Insignia's 450 and 550 watts units?

I can only find them on best buy, amazon and new/used units on ebay.

I also know their other units (400 and 520 watts) are really bad quality but their 450 and 550 watt units are 80+ white and bronze respectively so a little better than their previous units but still can't find any good info on them.

They are made by Huntkey, who can make top quality PSUs if they want to. In contrast, their lower end units were usually falsely advertised with overrated wattage. Note - they weren't exploding bombs, just had an inflated number of the label. How are those Inisignia units is anyone's guess though.

Seems like they are OEM to many Dell, IBM and make their own psu.

Some of them look "meh" to be honest.

They are Best Buy's store brand. I don't see were any have really been reviewed, and can't even find the OEM. I would avoid them.

I've bought an Insignia 450 psu from ebay for only 15 dollars.

I'll take a crack inside of them to see the build quality.

You most likely do know this already, but make sure you drain the main cap first.

Yea. Already had a "shocking" experience before.

So, you learned the hard way.
