ASUS U-75HA 750w ATX PSU
Packaging & Appearance
Packaging & Appearance
When it comes to the packaging of products such as motherboards and graphics cards, ASUS are well known for their elaborately large boxes often printed with tasteful graphics and extravagant accessory bundles. However, for the U-75HA things are a little more down-to-earth with a rather average sized box that has no hidden flaps or windowed panels and a fairly basic, yet professional looking blue, green and white colour scheme.
Unfortunately, ASUS seems to have taken things a little too far in the cost saving category, with the PSU being described in large white writing as "750w / 650w". Well what is it, 750w or 650w? It's not until you view the side of the box where ASUS have placed a small circular sticker over the 750w tickbox that you actually have any idea of what you might be purchasing.
Moving round to the back of the box we can see that ASUS have printed a specifications table similar to that seen on page one of our review. Also included are the specs of the 650w model which has slightly lower output across all of its rails in comparison to the 750w model. A general specification header also provides a short list of features common to both models.
To protect the PSU during shipping ASUS has sandwiched the U-75HA between two cardboard backed styrofoam inserts and placed it in a clear plastic bag. This, combined with the additional protection from the cable bundle and accessories box should ensure that the the unit reaches you in perfect condition even at the hands of a particularly rough courier. Also included in the box is a mains cable, bag of screws and some ASUS branded velcro strips.
Removing the unit from it's packaging we can see that ASUS have gone for a fairly standard design. The finish on the unit is a powdercoat paint in a slightly off-black colour that feels quite rugged. At the rear of the unit is a honeycomb mesh along with a rather large power switch that gives a really reassuring click compared to the tiny electronics project ones you see used by a lot of manufacturers. At the top - or bottom- of the unit (depending on what kind of PC case you have) is a large 135mm fan covered with a gold wire fan grill sporting the Vento logo. It is worth noting that the 650w model only features a 120mm fan and as such, will look slightly different to the 750w model.
Moving round to the side of the unit we come to the obligatory specification sticker. As per usual, this sticker provides a rail output table along with the usual warning about how you will meet your shocking demise should you open the PSU cover. Aside from the sticker there really is very little else to talk about in all honesty. No vents, embossed ASUS logo's or other custom designs. Just a plain Jane black box.
Lets move on now and take a look inside the belly of the beast...
