Zippy Emacs GSM-6600P G1 600w PSU
Published: 6th October 2006 | Source: Zippy Emacs | Price: |Introduction
After reviewing just under 20 power supplies for Overclock3D in the past few months I thought I'd heard of and tested just about every worthwhile unit on the market. Then out of the blue a few weeks back, I received an e-mail from a little known company called Zippy asking me if I'd like to take a look at some high end units from their latest range. How could I resist...
Zippy is not a company that many of us will have heard of, however they have been in the electronics business since 1983, and producing power supplies for the industrial market under the name of Emacs for over 13 years.
What Zippy say about themselves
"Founded in April 1983, ZIPPY Technology Corporation started out with the design and development of Switches, specializing in mold tooling and material engineering. The success of our Switches Division set the stepping-stone for a multitude of advancements in the upcoming years.
Riding amidst the wave towards rapidly developing e-business, our Power Division was established in 1993 and quickly set a strong foot-hold in the research and development in power supplies, particularly in Server Power Supply and Redundant Power Supply.
With more than twenty years of experience, we are more than confident to face the 21st century’s rapid advancement in electronics, biotechnologies and nanotechnologies. Working as a team, our staffs are ready to face any challenges heading our way."
Credit has to be given to Zippy for designing the only PSU packaging that has ever made me smile and admire its originality. Most companies tend to go for bright colours and CGI graphics to attract consumers, but Zippy has actually modelled their packaging around the PSU contained within...
Judging by the top of the box, it looks that Zippy might need to invest in a better English translator as "Best of Power Supply" doesn't quite make sense. Besides, putting such a bold statement on a product would generally turn potential buyers away.
The G1 is sandwiched between two styrofoam mouldings that protect it from knocks and dents. To avoid smaller scratches and marks, the unit is also placed in a plastic bag.
The full contents of the box are as follows:
• 1x 24-20Pin ATX converter.
• 4x ATX screws.
• 1x Zippy Emacs manual.
• 1x Chroma ATE test report.
• 1x Zippy Emacs 600w PSU.
