    Default Power bricks?

    Does anyone on here know what kind of quality the 90w antec and/or coolermaster power bricks are? A family members Toshiba brick just died.
    NP90: http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=MjE0MA==
    NA 90: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6626
    Thanks!

    Well, from the product code of the CM, "RP-090-S19A-J1" I conclude that it's an FSP product, and I can't find any reliable info on the Antec, but it's most probably a Delta inside. While FSP does make some good power bricks, I've always had more trust in Delta, and Antec tends to fail less often than CoolerMaster, so...

    I have to underline this, without some more research and first-hand info, treat this as an educated guess, and not a purchase tip.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Actually, they're both FSP.

    If you go with the slim Cooler Master, it's made by Acbel.

    Any of them are perfectly adequate for your Toshiba.

    This UL listing mislead me, as it mentions an "NP90" AC Adaptor, guess I read too much from it... Well anyway, the Man himself said it, so you can be sure it's all good

    There seems to be an increasing need for proper reviews of power bricks, what with all the power-hungry laptops and pico-ITX power "supplies" that require them... Jon, you already did a round-up of those, any chance of a similar event in the foreseeable future?

    I originally thought the Antec was a Delta too, until I recently did some research.

    Thanks guys. The antec is available locally for $30 so I think well go with that one. Jonny, any idea who the oem is for "Dr. Battery"? They're available at memory express here in canada for a similar price...

    Never heard of Dr. Battery. Never seen their adapters.
