Etasis ET750 750w Quad-SLI PSU

Introduction & Packaging

Introduction

When it comes to high-end power supplies, a few names that spring to mind are Tagan, Silverstone, Antec and OCZ. However, most people don't realise that several of these manufacturers use internal components designed by other companies who are more equipped to produce power supplies in large quantities.

Today I'm going to be taking a look at a Quad-SLI certified power supply from a company called Etasis. Most of us won't have seen or heard of Etasis, however they have been producing high-end server power supplies since 1996 and are also responsible for manufacturing power supplies for companies such as Silverstone.

About Etasis

Founded in October 1996, ETASIS grew steadily, quickly acquiring a strong reputation for it's high standards of quality and reliable products.

Packaging

Making your debut into the home-user market can be tricky after so many years of producing units for the server / enterprise market. However, Etasis have done their research, and created packaging that will certainly turn heads.

Etasis ET750 Box Front Etasis ET750 Box Top

The front and top of the box have been designed mostly to draw your attention to the unit, using 'alien-like' green graphics printed on a grey and black background. Very little information on the specification of the power supply is displayed at this point.

Etasis ET750 Box Side Etasis ET750 Box Back

Turn the box around to the side and we can see Etasis have printed some basic information regarding the rail layout of the ET750. From the above we can see that the unit has a total of 4 +12v rails, each rated at 18amps.

Just about everything you could ever possibly want to know about the ET750 is printed on the back of the box. At the top right we can see graphs displaying the units efficiency and noise levels as the load placed on the unit increases.

Other information such as the units 80%+ efficiency, 3 year warranty and 4x +12v rails is available in a total of 6 different languages!

The unit itself is sandwiched in-between two cardboard layers, each padded out with Styrofoam shapes to protect all corners of the PSU. Also included is a small cardboard box containing the following items:

• 1x Etasis manual
• 1x Power cord
• 4x Cable ties
• 4x ATX case screws

The large bundle of cables is contained within a bubble-wrap sleeve and tied together with a large cable-tie.

Yeah the twisted cables etc give it a Topower feel, but i'm sure they are just borrowing some good ideas

Yeah, that's what I noticed "topower" like.

You're probably right, just sharing/borrowing ideas . I really like the braid though, almost as much as sleeving. I hate un-braided/un-sleeved PSU's.

Ye i'm not too keen on loose wires either.

Mind you the PSU i'm reviewing at the mo has some nice unsleeved "ribon-style" flat cables..
