Couldn't hit the NDA because I am out of time and started working on something new, besides reviews. But I will soon put this on the load testers.

Thanks for the review Wolf!

For me value would rather be 1/10 to be honest. It's simply not worth 1000 USD, probably not even 500.

Depends...
The thing is this is the first thing that isn't made in China (or Taiwan) in a long time...

And you also may want to call it a fair unit...

I suspect that this one's going to be either a 10 or a 1 for value depending who you are and what you want. I know people who will gladly pay this price to get something not made in China.

This is actually not too bad for a custom Murata. They have a 380VDC 5kW monster that runs north of $3k.

I'm actually wondering why nobody produces PSU in Europe or Mexico. Minimum wage is so damn low in some countries, so labor cost would be same or even lower than in mainland China. I guess we really lack the knowledge nowadays in Europe and America to actually build PC hardware.

most of the computer power supply industry has build quality good enough to last 10-15 years... 20+ for this one wouldn't shock me
Surprised Cooler Master didn't take the opportunity to one up Seasonic's recently announced 12 year warranty with this model then.

But seriously, we are fans of product like this. We attempted somewhat similar thing back in 2008 with our Zeus ZM1200M where we tried elevating retail PSU build quality with fully automatic robot assembly line.

I don't believe lack of knowledge is a gating factor. Talent can move from country to country. I just think it's a lack of interest more than anything.

Shall we start a Kickstarter?
