    I see the Cougar way better. But it's not too available in Spain

    I'm still searching a ****** ultra-cheap decent PSU like Deepcool DE380 in Spain but it's impossible. Maybe I will get an old (nearly 10 year max.) Corsair VX450 for 20€ including shipment and all.

    Stephan; what does the k.A on OTP stand for?

    With that said, it's good to see the improvements on the VS line with these 2.0 units. As far as I recall, this is the first review of them.

    Likewise, that Cougar STX unit is a pretty decent budget offering. Unfortunately, with Mini-STX being a form-factor I have to say the naming is rather awful. Though I'm probably on the minority side of folks familiar with that form factor to begin with.

    And they're already slated to get EOL'd for another, significantly better, version.

    k.a. stands idr for 'Keine Angabe', witch translates to not mentioned by the manufacturer.

    It also means N/A, not applicable, which is rather different than "not specified".

    The old VS 2.0 stock will still show up on store shelves for awhile and may be discounted rather cheap in the future. So it's always good to have a review to reference.

    Danke. I haven't seen that mentioned in a review yet so I wasn't familiar with what phrase it would be.

    Is it going to be 80 Plus Bronze? (Or are you not at liberty to say ;p)
