    Default XPG Core Reactor 850W review @ Tomshardware

    XPG, ADATA's department addressing enthusiast users and gamers, enters the PSU market with the Core Reactor line. There are three members in this line, with 850W, 750W, and 650W max power. All are fully modular and 80 PLUS Gold certified. They are also certified by Cybenetics, rated as ETA-A for efficiency.

    When it comes to noise, the same organization rated the 650W and 750W models as LAMBDA-A, while the 850W unit has been certified as LAMBDA-A-. In today's review, we will take a look at the strongest member of the line, which is suitable for a powerful gaming system.

    Do cybenetics re-test if production models and review(pre-production) sample have different specifications?

    Performance is solid, but pricing doesn't reflect posiiton in the market.

    Availability is really bad. But December last year the 650W version was available here for 97 euro including 21% VAT in one store. Now it's 109 euro and still available in that one store only. For 97 euro it's actually a great choice, same price as Bitfenix Whisper, Seasonic Focus GX, Corsair RMx, Cooler Master V 2019. Only this one is a ATX 2.52 PSU, while those others are ATX 2.4.

    But if you mean it's not aggressive and XPG is a new brand name, so you want to be aggressive, then agreed. It was better to give the 650W version that second EPS connector and launch the 550W version with two PEG connectors for 10 euros less.

    Like this:
    550W 85 euros
    650W 95 euros
    750W 105 euros
    850W 115 euros

    the newest ATX spec (revision 1.42)
    the ATX12V v1.42
    seemed to be the confusion of Intel PSU DG 1.42 with ATX12V v2.52

    10y warranty.
    More and more suppliers are starting to take 10y level.
    But their (XPG and etc) warranty has limitations.
    Compensation is difficult to pretrial, or I'm mistaken?

    In the end XPG is a divion of a Taiwan company. If they don't like to honor the warranty there is nothing customer can do about it. If they decide to ignore RMA requests after a year that's it. Still, from my experience, as long brands are active in aproduct segment in your region they take care of RMA.

    Trust is at the core. But distrust is not often a problem. Your computer crashes due to a power supply. There are legal costs.
    And then it turns out that such costs are not reimbursed by warranty.
    PSU can be excellent in technical specifications. But horror text guarantees.
    Journalists do not pedantically review guarantee texts. Very sorry.
