Pyramid vs. Mega Watt

Is Mega Watt as good? I sure like the price difference. Equals in clean power? Thoughts?

I too have not used a Mega Watt PS but he is a sponsor here; http://www.12voltpowersupplies.us/ , best ask the source that question. I have run Pyramid PS's in the past and from experience if you need a 10A supply buy a 20A, if you need a 20A buy a 30A, and so on, their specs are highly overrated.
