Hi. My spare PC needs a new PSU, what's a reasonable quality brand to fit?

I use iCute from Maplins. Around 25 quid for a 400W model. There are cheaper ones around, but these are nice and quiet and seem to last well.

The one from 'ICF' without a doubt.

iCute Is Sharkoons secondary name. Not saying top of the line but reviews on the net for Sharkoon products arent on the low end. There have been a few reports of icute PSU's blowing which can mean taking out your other components.

Corsair are undoubtedly better, but my customers are usually reluctant to spend that much. I haven't had an iCute fail (yet!), but would probably go down the Corsair route if it was for myself.

Hi everyone & apologies for the delay in coming back to you! I've now sorted it with a iCute. All's now fine. Many thanks!
