Default SilverPower SP-S850 Power Supply

There's a new entry into the U.S. computer power supply market from across the pond called SilverPower. They are being brought to us by Tagan Technology Co., USA, which shares with SilverPower the same parent company, MaxPoint. Headquartered in Germany, MaxPoint describes the SilverPower brand as being a full range and nice priced series. Hmmm. Can you say budget brand auf Deutsch? Es ist haushalt marke.

Ranging in wattage from 350 to 850 watts, the SilverPower series is a no frills, non-modular cable offering that should appeal to those wishing to save a little money on a PSU that will provide them with enough power for their PC that is both adequate and economical. Though no MSRP has been anounced as of yet in the U.S., the SilverPower SP-S850 under review today is selling for about 80 (Including VAT) in the U.K. That's about $135 USD (no VAT). No VAT? No value added tax. Also note that there has been no official word yet on the U.S. warranty, but more than likely it's going to be three years parts and labor like its siblings from Tagan.

Checking in with my favorite online PC retail therapist, I found that 850 watt PSU's range in price from about $140 to $220 USD. Since I haven't won the lottery yet and I don't have an unlimited supply of cash, saving money on the endless supply of computer parts that I require is intriguing. If I can get adequate performance using economical means, I can justify my purchase by spending the savings in other areas. Let's take a look now at the SilverPower SP-S850 and see if its performance belies its nice price.
