    It's an untested power supply without any reviews (and the design is the same as the untested TR2 S series), which makes it a blind purchase. In addition to the flaws we can already see (group regulated, low efficiency, etc)

    Yeah that 600 you linked is garbage. Thanks!

    We can't be exactly sure whether they are garbage either - we simply cannot be sure of anything since they haven't been tested by anybody. Their load regulation and ripple can be 1% and 20mV, or 7% and 100mV. Like I said, blind purchase

    TBH 700W entry level designs are pointless anyway. If you can afford hardware that needs that much power, you can almost certainly afford something better.

    And even the 700 W model has only one 4+4 power connector for CPU and only 2 PCI-E power connectors.

    Some Toughpower models are still interesting.
