Aspire Chameleon 550w PSU
Published: 22nd April 2006 | Source: Aspire | Price: |Conclusion
The Chameleon is a good looking power supply with some nifty features. However it is let down by a lack of connectors and its unstable voltages on the +12v rail.
At around £35-40, this unit is a good alternative to the generic £20 units you see around on eBay and other sites, but don't expect it to be able to power your high end SLI or Crossfire machine.
Aspire do have a new range of 600w and 680w PSU's entering the UK market soon. Hopefully these will be able to keep up with the demands of the modern power hungry PC.
- UV Sleeved Cables
- UV Molex's and ATX connectors
- Switchable fan colours
- Adjustable fan speed
- Mesh casing for increased cooling performance
- Poor performance on +12v rails
- Lack of second PCI-E connector
- Lack of SATA connectors
- Buzzing noise under load
Thanks to Aspire for providing this Unit for review :)
