When I first checked into the Seasonic PSU, I made a note of the features included with it. One of my first thoughts was that it would be a bit on the expensive side and this proved to be accurate. Retail pricing showed results in the US$110-130 range so it isn't going to be the cheapest power supply on the market. But then, you're talking about features that aren't in existence on many other models around, so you'll have to figure out for yourself if they are worth it.
As far as performance was concerned, the PSU performed well within my margins of acceptable limits. While the 3.3v rail was a little on the low side, this proved to cause no problems within the test system. Add in the abundance of available wattage and you should have no problems with a full-blown enthusiast rig complete with internal lighting effects. And since this particular model follows the newer ATX 1.3 standard, the end results are beyond what most users will have a need for, which is a good thing in my book.
I guess my biggest complaint was the lack of thought for those utilizing SATA devices. This particular standard has just become too popular among the overclockers to be left out of the picture. Hopefully this will be rectified in future models.
Bottom line...If you've been looking for a power supply and have a need to be prepared for future upgrades, the Seasonic Super Silencer 460 certainly falls within this scope. While not the cheapest PSU on the market, it comes with several features that set it apart from the average power supply.
Plenty of power
Molex connections to spare
Cable management kit included
Scads of features
No SATA power connectivity
