DeepCool Introduces Three New DA PSUs

DeepCool is a Chinese company offering cooling solutions, cases, and power supplies (PSUs), along with a rich variety of PC accessories. The company revealed three new additions to its mainstream DA PSU line--the DA500, DA600, and DA700 models. All three feature 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency and promise a quiet operation, thanks to their silent 120mm fans. In addition, they feature a non-modular cable design, in order to restrict the production cost and have a lower MSRP, and they are most likely based on a CWT (Channel Well Technology) platform. The same OEM also provides the platforms for all the other DA models.

Warranty3 years

The DA700 and DA600 units are equipped with four PCIe connectors, so they will easily support a solid gaming system with two graphics cards installed. In addition, the dimensions of all new DA models are quite compact, at only 140mm in length. According to DeepCool, all protection features are present, including OTP, which usually isn't offered in mainstream PSUs. We will have to verify the available protections to be sure they exist, though, because many PSU manufacturers list protections without actually implementing them. Lastly, the warranty is set at three years. DeepCool unfortunately hasn't provided price information.

    3 year warranty doesn't bode well on an ATX size unit. Plus, is that just a label slapped onto the side of the unit to tag the model and efficiency rating?

    I heard you like power supplies on your power supply...

    Who buys bronze level anymore? aren't we all shooting for progress in efficiency? If not, a giant leap backwards?

    So since it has "REAL 700w" that means it really is a true 700w PSU? I know marketing is a stretch, but is that what we come to in marketing? I think 3 years warranty is okay, look at most of the CX series from Corsiar (not including the latest 'M' versions) and also the lower end EVGA's too. I'm not saying I'm buying this brand, but I'm expecting these will probably sit around the same price as the aforementioned PSU's. I would like to see a thorough testing of these (not ones that are cherry picked and set for reviews).

    I meant to say in previous post that the PSU's that are cherry picked and sent out to be reviewed. I'd like to see a site (anyone at all) buy one of these, because they won't cost much, and actually do a review of these. Gone are the days when sites would buy a product off the retail shelf (or through an online site nowadays) and do a review of an actual retail product. Too many sites rely on a "review" sample to do any kind of work for a review. Don't get me wrong, doing reviews aren't easy, but I long for the old style of reviewing retail products. Hell even paying the restocking fee wouldn't be much for getting an honest retail review out in the wild.
