  1. 1. What's the warranty on 80PLUS Platinum PSU that you expect?

    • Lifetime
      5

I voted 7 years, but even 5 is a good warranty time. Don't know what to say about  a lifetime one if i were a product manager. But as a client that should be freakin' awesome.

I voted for 5 years since that's enough for me,  I suppose. Even motherboard vendors only have a max of 5 years (ASUS TUF). Cost will probably skyrocket too if the warranty has been extended. 5 is safe enough. :)

To be competative you need to either follow suit or do better as  alot of other Platinum rated  PSUs carry a 7 year warranty.

I do wonder what "lifetime" really means when it comes to warrenties, does it mean the owner's lifetime, (that could be another 50+ years, so...) the item's lifetime? (when it dies, it's dead, so it's lifetime is over?), or the "product's lifetime" meaning as long as that item is being made, and once it goes EOL, warranty is up? I'd prefer an exact number so I know what to expect.

5 years warranty is more than enough. I think after that span of time - you already have a new PSU at hand, given that you're someone who buys high-end components such as a 80 Plus Platinum PSU. Lifetime is over kill. This product is not a tupperware :lol:

I'm using my PSU for about 6-7 years now and it still works like a charm.

 

I voted for lifetime, but I think 10 years would be more than sufficient. 

(or offer 7 years + option to purchase an additional 3 years.)
