Arrow Kolink Continuum 1500W Review

For my second review of 2018, we'll be revisiting the products of Hungarian company Kolink. Today, it'll be the 1500 watt Continuum model under the microscope. Let's see if this unit makes more of an impression on us.

Ah, Hungarian. I knew Kolink was based somewhere nearby but never bothered to find out where exactly.

'redundant jumped' vSense wires housed in a 6p when a less-costly 4p would have sufficed & more-so distinguished itself, tisk tisk. Lack of a front panel guide seems derelict

This is however one of the nicest 24p ribbons I've seen; note how they 'solved' the 24p PSU end, admire the way they weaved the bottom ribbons one-by-one into the top connector row, thus all four 16g ribbons are trained & tamed end-to-end, I like

I don't care for ribbons, at all, but Kolink's design should be considered just short of a beauty (vSense group was far better served if housed in a 3p Molex SL connector or MiniFit Sngl Row 3p) when compared to the orchestrated mess found in the $1000 ClrMstr MIJ 1200

Unfortunately Enhance' usually "quirks" strike again with either lack luster Ripple control or Voltage regulation. This time the later.

What kind of wall connector do you use for C19 cables? Is there a standard?

If not, perhaps that's why they didn't bundle the cable?

C19 is the end of the power cord that plugs into the PSU. The other end is whatever you need it to be.

Example of one for US outlet:
