Here is a snippet:
"So far we haven't had a good experience with most models from Huntkey. We've reviewed seven other models from this brand and only one, Titan 650 W which was sold in the US as the first version of Ro..."

Again a meticulous power supply review. Completed with a roundhouse kick followed by a kiss.

But still a power supply to keep in mind if found in the states.

Great review, pretty thorough, I thought you left out two important things though:

1) Underside of the PCB. You used to be famous for doing this. In fact, I used your pics to compare the Seasonic EA-500 to the Delta EA-500.

2) You should have pointed out at the end that the Fcon and HEC capacitors are known lousy brands and are unreliable. This should have easily detracted from your total score.

Still, a very impressive design, and a great project for someone who wants to switch the caps.

Nice to see a proper PSU from Huntkey.

I have a full understanding that the euphoria Gabe felt after finding out that this PSU could provide stable low noise and ripple power, more than rated, without blowing up, caused the sudden Golden Award.

However, there are a few issues that really should put that reward on hold:
- Unreliable capacitors. (As noted in the previous post.)
- Imperfect transient filter. (No MOV.)
- Unknown price. (Might be too expensive.)

Cheers

This is a tough room. But valid points.

You are probably making a confusion between our site and some other site. We've never took pictures of the solder side of the PCB and we never reviewed Sesonic EA-500 ou Delta EA-500. However, I will try to keep your request in mind, this is not hard to add on the next reviews.

I only talk about things that I have experience with, and you will never see us talking about things that we've heard about but haven't seen by ourselves. Therefore I will leave comments on capacitor quality to readers like yourself. By the way, we don't give scores in our reviews.
