This seems like a good price for an 80+ gold rated, 850W power supply. Scan's regular price of £83.82 is apparently a special promotion and is, as far as I can tell, the cheapest price available, so an extra £9.43 off that is pretty good in my opinion.

It's a fantastic PSU made by Seasonic however Scan employed troglodytes in their customer service department - stay away if you want to deal with this bunch.
Personally, I've never had any issues with Scan, but, as with pretty much any company, there will be people, like yourself I assume, who have been unfortunate enough to have had a bad experience.

most of the comments here are negative and they are quite fresh,. bear on mind that Scan deletes some of those

I wasn't trying to say you're alone. However, I'm sure the amount of negative experiences with Scan is nothing compared to the amount of positive ones, but most people don't go shouting about how great a company is when everything goes as expected. It's only when things go wrong that people tend to say anything. Anyhow, I'll continue buying from Scan as all my previous purchases from them have gone well, but I totally understand why you would rather avoid them.

never had any issue with scan. people always became very vocal when they are unhappy with the service.

Called them a couple of times in the past and found their customer service well above average.

Far easier to deal with than the snakes at Amazon. Jesus, they're the worst by far.
It truly blows my mind that they carry such a good reputation (no fault of the staff, they're following orders).

Lots of people that have never used them probably say the same, the ones that have will mention lack of stock control, and lack of allocating stock against valid purchases. During the quieter times they are probably fine.
But...
Probably best to avoid them when its the headline offers such as the Christmas Day Presents Offers (5 days to go)

You'll just waste too much time chasing them to get your money back on non-existent stock.

I would buy this as cm psus get excellent reviews but I just don't like cooler master much , I bought a psu of theirs and a case years ago and found both to be flimsy and cheap although the psu is still going about 5 years later

Good PSU, decent price.
Never had issues with scan personally. I'm sure people have had issues with them as they are just another company, there will always be some customers who have had a bad experience. On the whole I think they are above average though.

If it makes any difference, this is really a Seasonic unit, so I don't imagine it'd be flimsy or cheap.

Specifically I think the calculation they use on partial refunds for goods over 6 months old where they can not repair\replace is the worst out there - I do find it funny though that they advertise on amazons site and flu bit will not match any prices by them based on that amazing reputation of theirs ;)

I was unaware of the partial refund policy for older goods, that seems unusual to me and unreasonable IMHO. You could be forgiven it were outside of the warranty period, but for almost all (non-refurb) items this should be at least one year.
Do other tech companies have similar policies I wonder?

All companies (tech and none tech) have partial refunds to some degree. The 6 month rule is down to where liability to prove the fault lies (b4 them, after u). That bit is standard - what isn't standard is the valuation which differs per company. Scan interpretation is the expected lifespan of the goods is the warranty period. I.e. If you had goods for 11 months with a 12 month warranty and they could not repair or replace they would offer you a twelve of what you paid. Not advocating, but compare that to ebuyer they consider all goods to be expected to last 6 years for this calculation - in the same example above you would get a 61/72 refund

Scam refer this as benefit of use and I've been involved in a dispute with these shysters over a failed HDD which failed within its warranty period (10 months into a 24 month warranty) their offer was £40 as opposed to the retail cost of £65. I hate them with avengance, shocking service.

For anyone who thinks this is fair business practice, think of it this way, if you £300 washing machine failed within warranty, would you be happy with an offer of £200? Doubt it.
