You cannot pick a whole brand, it's better to speak about specific models.

When you're talking about so many good PSUs, it comes down to paint jobs ;-)

Yellow racing stripes! RAWR! Heh heh, I just noticed that it was a multiple choice poll. I only voted for Antec. I should have voted for Silverstone as well.

I have always work with corsair but I'm about to try seasonic in the next build and will probably go with a silent silverstone for the HTPC, I only choose corsair because it's the only one I really have used.

Ask for more.

I've used them all except for Corsair, which everyone already knows is good stuff. I've never had an issue w/ any of them that I wasn't the cause of.

I've been stuck with Dell / HP for very long so I have only tried Antec and Seasonic; both have worked flawlessly for me. ...actually I haven't had a Dell or HP PSU blow up on me yet, but that's another discussion
I don't know Enermax, but with any of the other 5 brands, I'll select any one of them based on capabilities I need vs. price.

Voted for both Corsair and PC P&C (see my sig... ;) ).

In all honesty though, the days of only having a few quality PSUs to choose from (hence my loyalty to PC P&C) are long gone. Most manufacturers seem to be putting out a fairly high quality product, especially now that prosumers are better educated.
