five different protections

high quality overall finish

I was informed that A&O
is selling these fine PSU's in Belgium.Objective conclusion
Global WIN really did a good job here ... actually - they took it one step further.
Five (!) different protections, the dedicated S-ATA dongle with two connectors, the three extra connectors for additional fans, and lots more technical features are packed into this fine piece of machinery. Well, at this point, you have the "vanilla" SAF520 (or the SAF480, which packs 480 Watts). They obviously decided to knock it up a notch, and added a very stylish design. Combining the blue tainted plexi windows with the illuminated fans and topping it off with the mirror finish was - in my humble opinion - the right choice.Subjective conclusion
I'm thinking of buying me one of these!
I would like to thank Amal El Badraoui from Eurobizz.de for providing us with a review sample, check their site for other good looking hardware from Global Win and other manufacturers:
