Pasting comment here as links do not work on the front page... :)

From what I read in reviews, the PSU is a bit noisy and not as stable as its rivals. It certainly overpriced at £60+ but for 30 quid it's OK. As my PSU died this weekend, I needed to buy replacement so I was looking for FSP reviews and decided to go for Corsair CMPSU-520HXUK instead. The Corsair one is much more expensive though. See discussion here.

Again, I am not saying that this is bad PSU and comparing it to Corsair is slightly unfair given the price difference. However, when not on special offer, these PSUs are competing against each other...

hi Kommunist - can you remember which review said it was noisy? I bought a Blue Storm 2 last week and haven't put my new computer together yet (as haven't bought all the bits) - the reviews I read said that it was very quiet - I certainly hope so as i was aiming for a virtually noiseless system!

Here is one of reviews: Silent PC. You can listen to the actual noise (they have MP3s on site).
TBH, this is certainly not the worst PSU noise I heard :) So use word "noisy" in context. For example, they only measured 22dBA/1m from Corsair @ 300W but 36dBA/1m from FSP @ 200W.
