Great Wall PSU, good/bad/poor?

What do you think of Great Wall PSU? Is it a manufacturer (OEM) suddenly turned into a brand name? Or are they two totally irrelevant companies?

I've had a Great Wall PSU in one of my PCs for about 3 years with no problems [ got it from PBtech]. Unsure of the companies heritage.

for sure it will not perform to its rated wattage. Probably best to think of a 600w great wall as like a 400w good brand PSU.

Yep,probably right . i don't stress the PC mine is in. Horses for courses etc.

Better to stick with quality. Bad PSUs have a nasty habit of taking out the rest of your components when they go.

Stick with quality - which is what parts are used internally. Antec for instance.

Interesting how people always seem to skimp on the power supply - like getting a car and not caring what engine you got in there.

The logo looks the same as great wall auto! lol
Is it the same company?
Apparently alot of Thermaltake power supplies are just rebranded great wall! lol

OCZ and Corsair also rebrand Great Walls so don't bother with the brand name, have a look at reviews for the specific PSU you want and base your decision on that. The more reviews the better.

But the difference is in the support. I doubt you'll have any luck getting Great Wall to honour any warranty. Corsair on the other hand.

Which is why I said look at reviews. Most review sites take after sales support into consideration as well.

Do they? I'm not aware of any that try to get a replacement 4 years down the road.
