i personally wouldnt use the b2 either.... the g2 on the other hand... but you get what you pay for.

It's good..... vgood at this offer price... but at standard price if take the g2 over it.

edit - actually i dont see the 49.99.... its only a $15 MIR
 


The price changed, it was a $30 MIR from NCIX, it's down to $10 now.
And the B2 is still a tier 2 unit, up there with many other Seasonic and Super Flower options. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

Of course the G2 is far better. But the B2 still has all Nippon Chemi-Con caps, excellent voltage regulation (1.1%) and good ripple suppression (45mV) for the 12v rails. It definitely has a place in gaming machines for people who are on a Corsair budget.

They can be huge. My company uses so many licenses (they have something like 200,000 computers around the world) that they offer employees a license for the whole MS Office Suite for $15.
