    Default FSP Hydro PTM 750W Power Supply Review

    I want to thank everyone for being patient with us while we get things lined out. We’ve made a lot of changes and still have some to come. Right now, it’s time to start working on that review pile that’s been growing for the last 4 or 5 months. We’ve looked at a few of the Hydro series units in the past (a couple of the G’s and an X), today we’re going to take a look at the Hydro PTM 750 from FSP.

    This current trend in the DIY market of having no user manual is really obnoxious. I recently did a build for someone with an Arctic Cooling tower heatsink and it came with a little QR code to scan, which didn't even give you a PDF. It was just their shitty mobile site.

    Paper costs money. And then there's the snowball effect of a larger manual needing a larger box to be placed within, which reduced pallet count, which increases shipping costs....

    And recently all of the countries have demanded that IF you sell in their country and IF you include that manual, that manual has to be translated into that country's language. Before, it was only English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean and Japanese. Now it includes Polish. Portuguese, Arabic and Dutch are optional.

    That's changing. Too many language requirements now. Current manual doesn't include Italian and Polish and that just pushes us over the edge.

    Thank you for the review.
    It's better to add the word review in the title.

    I know why it is, but it's still obnoxious.

    My word of advice; give people a PDF to download at least. The "web-page manuals" are god awful 90% of the time.

    To be fair, I cannot remember the last time I even glanced at the manual for any components I bought over the past years, except maybe a glance at some pages of the mainboard manual for the frontpanel layout and such.

    Having a nice PDF or HTML version to look at does seem like a good idea, though. At the very least the product page for the PSU or anything else should have all of the information one would expect to see in a manual anyway.
