Power and reset are exactly the same. I wasn't aware there was a problem with them. I hardly ever use them; I just use PS2 keyboard power on. Thanks DirtyLude. There have been issues with the P150/Solo buttons, so I was curious if they'd been improved on the Sonata Designer (which wouldn't be visib...

Don't be misled by the "statistics" in a forum poll. The responses are overwhelmingly from people with a complaint. Happy customers only rarely respond to such polls.

I meant it seems like a really big PSU. Not sure if it's deeper than the biggest ones. (sorry if I confused anyone, I had a bit too much wine for dinner last night :P ) That's what I thought.
