PCStats has posted a review on the Vantec ION 400W VAN-400B Power Supply
Buying a poor quality power supply for a computer is often like buying cheap tires for a car. They'll work for a while, probably not very well, and you're only a small steep away from total disaster. When visiting the local computer stores in my area I always cringe when I hear "just give me the cheapest power supply you have" coming from a customer. If there's one thing I've learned from both testing and troubleshooting PC's, it's that you should never buy a poor quality power supply for your computer. All too often, I've seen what happens when a poor quality powersupply fails, taking several hundred, or thousand dollars worth of high-end hardware down with it. Just recently one of my friends had everything inside his system completely fried when a generic 400W PSU popped a capacitor. The only items salvageable were the videocard, soundcard and memory modules.
