Is this PSU of reasonable quality

I need a 550w PSU for a new PC build, and was going to get a corsair one, but found this one for about $30 cheaper https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/product/z9CD4D/antec-earthwatts-gold-pro-550w-80-gold-certified-semi-modular-atx-power-supply-ea550g-pro

$30 cheaper from which PSU?

If it's the Corsair TXM forget it, get the Corsair.

It's the better PSU unit.

yeah, $30 from the corsair TXM. But the antec still has a 7 year warranty, and above a 90 energy rating. Of course the corsair will be better, but what difference will it make?

Well, that particular Antec hasn't great transient respond times on the 12V and 3.3 Volt rails, but it relies on a Seasonic platform (Seasonic G Series) so it will be fine. :)

I might get the TXM just to play it safe

It’s actually not based on the G lineup, it’s a badge engineered Focus/Focus Plus
