one of the most ugliest looking cases i have ever seen. ok for a normal office pc, would not of paid the rrp of £39.99 £14.99 is ok for a basic case.

Wow if that's the ugliest you've seen you should get out more! Mine is waaaay worse than that.;-)

Any ideas what the PSU is? I'm after a PS4 compatible PSU. The description is very vague I was having a look on the site only moments ago :-D

Seems a HD price for a budget case, voted hot

the PSU will probably suck ass but very hot for a little cheap machine most PSU's cost around £20 or more let alone a case as well.

ps4 compatiable? wth is that!

Ugly case, cheap crappy PSU.
Fair enough, the looks of the case may not matter but make sure you wear protective gloves when installing the hardware...
And I'no doubt the airflow will be great.
As for the PSU, yeah, you need not worry about your components with a solid high quality power supply like this, I'm sure it wont cause any problems.....ever.



Or you could spend a bit more and get better branded components?

this is a good price. No point spending more to get branded since the idea is to pay little as possible with this case!

There are better cases on ebuyer for £15.
The only place that PSU is good for is the bin. Fair enough some people want to spend as little as possible when building a PC, but the one component you should NEVER be tight with is the PSU. I've spent the last 18 years building and selling PC's, I should know.

So this deal is effectively £19 (inc del) for an ugly cheap case, the PSU doesn't even come into it.

Disagree entirely, the cheapest power supply on Ebuyer (£7.99) which I've used has excellent revues. People seem to _want_ to spend ridiculous amounts of money on, for instance, some fancy power supply with led. A power supply is a power supply. They all seem to use less components than they used to. That can be an advantage. Less chance of dry joints developing. This one has a high wattage (400) should be good for most motherboards, especially now they're all going 'greeen' :-)

Correct

High wattage does not mean it can actually do that wattage at full load or at any temperature above room temp.

Either way if your spending £14.99 on a case I'd hope nothing hi-end is going in it anyway!

Firstly, you bought your (branded) PSU as a seperate component based on a lot of reviews from ebuyer. That's a whole lot different from buying a cheap ugly case for £15 with an unknown, unreviewed PSU. Please tell me about this bundled PSU, how many people are happy with it? How many people have had problems with it? In fact, who the hell made that PSU?
You have no idea, and nor does anyone else. I've seen cheap PSU's literally 'blow up', so if anyone really feels like building a PC with this, perhaps for one of their children, feel free...

Secondly, ebuyer do try to buy quality components, and while sometimes they do make errors, on the whole they sell quality kit (it's their business, selling a lot of low quality PC components would ruin them).

Thirdly, do you really want to bring ebuyers 'reviews' into this argument? I bet they have sold thousands of those £7.99 PSU's, yet there's only 71 'mostly positive' reviews. Do you know why? Have you ever tried submitting a bad review on ebuyer? I have, a number of times (bare in mind I've bought hundreds of components from them, and have only had a few duff components which they replaced instantly). Not a single bad review I've written has shown up, and that's because they don't publish them, they filter out 99% the bad reviews (they leave a few in there to make it seem genuine, but VERY few), and that is a well known fact.

I bet if ebuyer sold the PSU bundled with this case they'd be lucky to get 7 good reviews, let alone 71.

As for people wanting to spend 'ridiculous amounts' on PSU's, that's rubbish, only hardcore gamers spend big money on PSU's. You can get a good quailty general use PSU for £20-30. and that's not a massive amount. If you value every other component in your system and want to get the most life out of them, you have to start with a solid PSU, but you don't have to spend a fortune.

I'm simply saying that I've never had problems with any cheap power supplies. The main thing that effects all cheap or expensive power supplies is the cooling. If the fan stops or is clogged up or the heat sink vanes on the switching transitors are covered with dust, this can lead to failure or dry joints.

Well, I've bought a few of their cheapest power supplies IIRC they used to have one for about £4! over the years and I've not had one fail yet.

It's the same sort of mentality that buys 'fancy' hi-fi accessories gold plated cables, oxygen free copper connectors. Basically the specification of a power supply is defined for a pc whatever it's price. Maybe a more expensive one may be quieter running because it has a quieter fan or maybe not.

There's no problem with blowing up power supplies. I've never seen one actually explode, if thats what you mean. I've had a few fail and seen pcs where the supply has failed. There was a problem with some capacitors but this effected all manufacturers. Power supplies used to be protected with fuses but now they usually have fuseable links, so it's very unlikely that a power supply could damage a motherboard (for instance), and the switching mode means that they don't start when they fail, so there's simply no output.
