I've found that in general, as long as you avoid the bottom-of-the-barrel generic brands, your odds aren't particularly better or worse than if you purchase a brand that is currently favored by the enthusiast community. Antec and Thermaltake -- which both have been recommended here in the past, including by yours truly -- have had their share of problems. I think it may come down to "who are they contracting their manufacturing out to this month"...
Seasonic has a cleaner record than most, so BloodSoul's recommendation is a reasonable one.
Lately I've been buying Ultra PSUs. Don't laugh... yes, I know they don't have the best reputation, but I've had zero issues with them in the past 3-4 years, which is more than I can say for any brand other than Seasonic. And they tend to be quite reasonably priced.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
