Thanks for this complete review.

But I think this review fails to catch the point that makes this PSU unique: its depth is only 140mm.

Very few PSUs are able to provide 750W with such shallow depth, and no one does with such a good quality. This is a very rare feat. Cases with little space and most mini-ITX build can benefit from this PSU, I think this should be mentioned.

Corsair RM-X, with >160mm is the main opponent thorough the review. Although It's fair to compare both PSU's, but we should mention what those 20mm extra do for, example, quiet operation. Corsair RM-X is no contender in this... "space" (no pun intended).

Nay, I don't consider CWT to be the same tier as Seasonic or Superflower. At this price, I rather go for Seasonic. If XPG decides to use Flextronics or Delta, then I am on!!

Here's one interesting thing i found about this PSU;
Moreover, official site doesn't list it's specs either. Just a wall of text as a description. Hard to read description with light grey lettering on white background.

That's an odd/shady sales site that is not secured. The info from xpg.com shows 10 years and the specs.

On my end, that linked page doesn't exist.

Uh-Oh! Not Found

You’re in the middle of nowhere. The page you requested either was moved or doesn’t exist.

What you can do:

Go back Home page
Contact to me if you believe this happened in error
Also, when going to xpg.com, then selecting XPG -> Official Store, you'll land on the same store i linked in my reply. So, it is legit.

Btw, on xpg.com, i could not find any listing of PSUs. There's plenty of other hardware listed there, but no PSUs.

On the site under the XPG drop down choose products(not store) , then pc components on the page that comes up you can select PSU.

Thanks for that.

After i navigated through the site, i now also see the PSU specs. But the link to go there directly doesn't work.

Any thoughts on XPG official store and contradictory info found on there?

Possible they don't offer the 10 year warranty in all markets and the website is poorly done so probably a mistake on their part, web designer in over their head(s).

Well, according to EU law, min warranty must be 2 years. Though, XPG lists it as 3 years. And that makes me wonder, to whom they offer the 10 years warranty?

and the website is poorly done so probably a mistake on their part, web designer in over their head(s).
Aris published the PSU review in 12th Feb. Now, it's 11th July, 5 months later. I find it hard to believe that XPG couldn't fix that "error" in time.
Shady dealings, if you ask me.

This is not unusual. In fact, it's becoming more and more common. Used to be a rare occurrence when a manufacturer or brand sent out "golden" samples but the retail models were modestly different. Now, it seems to be an almost regular occurrence, and the thing about that which is disturbing is that reviewers don't revisit this to ascertain accuracy or legitimacy of these kinds of BS problems. I'm not saying it's their responsibility, but, it's happening, it's pretty obvious and it SHOULD be something that SOMEBODY is interested in looking into. Except that, they aren't. So, you just have to stick to companies you know have too much invested in their company image to do this kind of crap, rather than looking at products from companies who stand to gain by this kind of tactics.

the website mentions 3 years warranty then why it's advertised as 10 years warranty everywhere even on box? is there any special way to claim 10 years warranty, such as online product registration.
