Thanks, wingo! I've seen several people push the inventronics over the meanwells but from where I have been standing, the only real difference was that the inventronics are potted (encapsulated in epoxy or silicone). It seemed to me that, both companies being taiwanese, would likely have similar quality products, unless it turned out one of them was using higher quality capacitors or something. It seems to me if reliability is a big concern, it would be wise to size one's drivers about 20% bigger than what you need.
