Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Silver Power's SP-S850 power supply - Silver Power's SP-S850 power supply
Wed, October 01 2008 | 9:02AM | PermaLink Feedback?
So all in all, the Silver Power SP-S850 is a bit of a no frills but essentially solid PSU - it does what it says on the tin and falls around mid table in an efficiency list mostly made up of PSUs that are more expensive and/or lower power. The styling has a quirky retro-esq feel that to some might be a little too plain, but we kind of like the way it tries to be different. Not everyone will want the flashy blue LEDs though and some way to turn these on or off would have been nice. When you dive a bit deeper though you do find out where Silver Power has made a few decisions that don’t quite cut it in our opinion. It's not the quietest out there, especially as you ramp up the juice and the internal heatsinks, while nice and flashy gold, are not as large as some we've seen - that's part of the reason why the unit needs to get louder than we'd like.
