What's amazing is that PFCs are in more expensive power supplies, and don't seem to be an advertised selling feature (at least in the one in the English review.)

So they're faking something that no one expects and that they're not charging for, which means a few pennies extra of lost revenues.

Unless I'm incorrect and it is a selling feature.



Oh, so apparently it's used in calculating wattage ratings, so this guy had a 500W PSU explode at 320W or so

The site linked from there shows even more ridiculous PFC trickery. I'd be FURIOUS if I found some crap like this in mine (altho I admit, I've never opened it nor plan to), but I doubt any of the PSUs shown there are recognizable brand names.

Duh...let's look at the equation.

Chinese designer + Chinese manufacturing + Chinese marketing = crap designed to rip you off.

There's nothing new about that equation. BTW, loving the mention of the AOBAMA units, as if that would help them sell, good stuff.
