    Default Error in Mushkin Hp-550 Review?

    I was reading over the Mushkin review and noticed that the label on the power supply says "XP-550" while the review's title says HP-550.

    Can someone clear this up for me?

    That's funny. I never noticed that.

    But how is that an error in the review? The box says "HP" and the label says "XP." That's an error in the label.. not the review.

    Tom from Mushkin posted this on the NCIX website:

    They are all the HP550. Our marketing guys made a mistake and ordered it as XP550. But these are our low end PSU. We will have a 550 with pfc and higher efficiency but that is not due for 1 month.
    My unit is NOT an XP-550. If it was... well... that would be sad.

    Looks pretty sad to me either way.

    And here we have a Mushkin rep singing its praises over at NCIX. I'm sure Jonny will be contacted by them soon.

    No, not like that. LOL.

    Tom, the Mushkin sales rep over at NCIX was asking which website I get my review links from on this thread:
    http://forum.ncix.com/forums/index.p...t=39&subpage=1
    I named your site and a few others as having the most in-depth and trusted reviews. He is supposed to contact you about reviewing a few more Mushkin PSUs. Or the OTHER Mushkin PSU.

    He knows who I am. He's contacted me before.

    Anybody marketing the HP-550 as an enthusiast unit and "singing its praises" is not revealing the whole picture. Simply put, the unit Jon reviewed was garbage. No amount of spin will change that.
