Hi guys, 

 

What's your first impression when you see a PSU with 100% Japanese capacitor?

Do you feel any difference between Japanese made and other capacitors when you are using the PSU?

I don't really have the knowledge to know what capacitors are better than others atm, but I'd rather have a specific company/brand/model number than place of origin as the description of a part.

Japanese products are built to last, just like the MDR of the 90s and the Super Takumars. That said, I regard anything with genuine Japanese parts as great, if not the best products.

Its a claim that I respect, but usually don't believe, unless it is confirmed by a 3rd party.

 

I want to see Hardware Secrets open it up pull it apart examine the capacitors and confirm their origin.

After I discovered how comprehensive Hardware Secrets reviews and tests on PSUs are I wouldn't buy and high end PSU (+$100) unless I see the a review that not only tests the performance include a teardown portion to test the "Japanese Capacitors!" claim many manufacturers are putting on their boxes.
