But do you know what they used it for?

Most people on Tom's Hardware are building gaming systems. Long duration, high load practically every day.

Low end power supplies will do fine for a web browser or general purpose computer. They are never under a lot of stress. I often recommend Thermaltake's TR2 line for people that are in a hurry, since it is available in US retail stores. But if they are a heavy duty gamer, then no. They need something that can operate for years under varying loads with a high frequency of temperature cycles.

Really cheap power supplies catch fire or fail spectacularly and take out your computer hardware.
