X-bit Labs has another big power supply roundup. This time they take a look at a bunch of entry-level models and mainstream models with wattages ranging between 300W and 750W. The test includes PSUs from manufacturers like HEC, InWin, FSP, Tsunami and Hiper but they also included one from PC Power & Cooling.
This roundup covers power supply units for midrange and entry-level computers. Such models start from a modest wattage of 300W and a price of $20. Some of the products tested – the Ascot and InWin models, to be exact – come to the market not only individually but also together with same-brand system cases that have earned a reputation for a good quality at an appealing price.
Of course, I couldn’t help including a couple of high-wattage 750W PSUs for enthusiasts and owners of large system cases (you know, it is hard to fit a 500W or higher PSU into a small PC case, see our article called 1000W Power Supply Unit Roundup for details) – you’ll find them at the end of this article.
