Cooler Master PSU warranty now 5 years

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/07...psu_warranty/1

Cooler Master has increased its warranty on PSU's from an industry average two, to a massive five years. Will the rest of the industry follow suit?

Honestly, every PSU needs this warranty standard because it's almost expected (especially when you leave your PC on at night) that it will give you problems within the last 3-5 years and you'll probably have to spend another $75-$X to get yourself another decent name-brand PSU once it gives out during the last 4-5.....so I feel like Cooler Master made a good decision here to set themselves out from the rest of the pack.....I personally own a 450W Cooler Master so...I'm happy

5 years.... sounds good... but the only person i know that doesnt exchange the computer regularly is my grandmother.... and honestly... she doesnt have a clue what a psu even is....

personally, i've never had any computer component for 5 years... but well, its still a good thing, in case someone actually really never upgrades.

Does the warranty affect PSUs purchased from now onwards, or will it also include those purchased earlier (for example in June)?

I handle RMAs for a small system integrator, so longer warranties are always good in my book. PSUs aren't the biggest worry, though - we RMA five times as many motherboards as anything else.

Doesn't suprise me tbh. I had to buy 3 recently to get one that worked longer than a week.

Personally I think 5 years is too much for warranty.
I really think 3 years is good enough.

All CoolerMaster is doing is following the trend, nothing special or new for that matter.

I just don’t see the benefits of having a 5-year warranty PSU.

Technology changes so much and so quickly.
I can promise you that I will not have the same hardware in 5 years time.

So really, will this make me go and buy a Cooler Master PSU because it offers me 5 years – No wayyyy

I buy a product because I like it or because it performs well etc…
As long as I get a decent warranty with it (2~3 years) then I’m happy.
