Didn’t take it apart yet but this Logysis

Rear vent dented out of a sealed box. All the stickers immediately fell off because the glue was so poor. It claimed to be 550W but that’s “peak” and it’s only 500W.

Oh the on off switch? Well it rests in that center position. Probably not a good thing.

Deer/Allied are certainly one of the worse PSU's I've ever seen. Hard to believe that Powmax/Leadman is actually worse.

The Deer that killed my hard drives back at the turn of the century and led me to becoming a power supply reviewer... takes second place for me.

Allied was a bit "less" worse with i have seen from old DEER.

In my current job (I didn't choose those of course), we had the 250W Allied SFF model in an older model. At least, I haven't seen them broke others part like DEER. But we had falling caps, couple of fan change and Hold time was horrible compare to other model in the park. During bad weather outside and electricity was unstable, all those model reboot and other model where still ok.
