Seasonic changes US pricing in response to US/China Trade War

The United States and China are currently in the midst of a trade war, forcing new tariffs on a range of new products, many of which impact the tech industry. 

While some companies have the option to move production away from China, other lack that luxury. In the case of Seasonic, this means that their world-famous power supplies will be receiving a price increase of around $10 on average, with exact pricing adjustments varying on a model-by-model basis.   

Today, Seasonic has confirmed that all new orders after December 1st, that are destined by for the US market, will receive some significant pricing adjustments, which are now in effect for all new orders. While this news isn't positive, it is nice to see Seasonic being straight with their customers about this situation. 

     Effective 01 December 2018, Sea Sonic USA is to increase the MSRP for all power supplies manufactured in China and destined for the US market. This is the result of recent market developments, but all orders placed prior to this date shall follow current pricing.
