A box doesn't need smashed corners to have been seriously chucked about or dropped hard. Most of your decent cardboard boxes will show little damage if they're dropped on a flat side.

I have to say, while it didn't blow my socks off, I was pleasantly surprised. I really had some low expectations for this unit.

TheLab.gr is correct. I couldn't remember what the site was since I've been reading most of his reviews on TPU for awhile.

It is an Acbel unit. All of the Real Power M units were. I remember the 620w was pretty poor. I think it was crmaris that reviewed it on his Greek site (sorry I can't remember the name.)

It's not been opened up by anyone yet, but it appears to have different internals to the 850w & 1000w.

Still a Delta made unit though.

It should be noted that Enhance has been adapting their multi-rail designs into single-rail designs like this for years.

I would have given the unit an award as well, but in my opinion you shouldn't score against price and merely on performance. Only because price is such a subjective matter.

As McSteel pointed out; this units biggest distinguishing factor at it's relative performance & build quality is the fact that it's 80+ Platinum certified.

I'd say this is another case where the pot is spoiled by useless features. Unless digital support is as robust as an AXi unit I wouldn't want it. Like wise, it adds to the cost, which is really the...

Given TPU's numbers, I'd say that it is still a pretty sketchy claim since they had an almost perfect 230v input (slightly high by 0.3v) at 50% load (the top of the efficiency crest) and still didn't...

Razer mice also tend to be lighter and made of glossy plastics. So after being used for awhile they can look and feel cheap.
