Default Ultra sues just about every other PSU maker!

I should have sued everyone after the great avatar theft of 07.

That is confusing for me. Although I didn't see Cooler Master among the list of defendants, I have a CM modular power supply, and if it was legal for them to manufacture and sell it, why wouldn't it be legal for me to use it?

Bunch of Maroons - It's us end users that are teh bad guys.

The suit actually doesn't accuse the companies of violating the patent, but of being an accomplice to end users who are violating the patent.
LoL, awesome.

Nope. They were one of the first to get a 1600watt PSU out there, but I wouldn't count on it being a quality unit...

This bs is happening more and more. Companies can't compete, start lawsuits. They need to stop allowing companies to lump all this together.

Depends on what you mean by "good" psus. They're just fine for the every day user, I've built several computers for people that use their computers for things other than gaming and never had a problem with any of them.

For anyone that doesn't think that there are alot of lawsuits like this, check out this link:

http://classactionworld.com/public/filedcases.php

These are just the one filed awaiting judgement, for the ones already settled, check this link:

http://classactionworld.com/public/settledcases.php

These are just class action cases, which are recent. It's no wonder that the courts are so crowded. Think of all the money going to lawyers.
