Barring a major change in the way electronics are manufactured,
we're never going to see a truly Green power supply, but that doesn't
mean some manufacturers aren't making an effort to clean up their acts.
The latest to the market is Seasonic with the Eco Power 300.
The Eco Power 300W isn't too different of a unit over all. It's RoHS

is the same as another Seasonic SFX power supplythey had reviewed two years ago. So what's the actual "green" aspect of
this product? Is it just the fact that it comes in a recycled, one
Although I must say that I do like the little SFX to ATX adapter
included with this unit. If you have a computer with on board
graphics, one hard drive, etc. this would be a neat little PSU to use.
