    [skin crawls]Thermaltake[/skin crawls] makes a similar unit.
    I'm not sure what to make of the concept yet, much less the implementation.
    On one hand, I can see how modular PSU's are a cool idea- why not make a variety of units and run all your subsystems (say, opticals and hard drives, motherboard, cooling) from separate PSU units, matching their output to requirements?
    Conversely, these particular devices appear to be targeted at people who have marginal PSUs to begin with and that group would be better served by an upgrade to a better main unit rather than this bandaid approach.

    If you're running a platform capable of supporting dual 7950GTXs you'd better already have a damn fine power supply installed, so what would be the point of an add-on unit?

    Besides, the trend over the last few years has been towards quieter and quieter components...now these things come along and guess what?
    Welcome back, dreaded 40mm screamers.

    I haven't seen any in-depth reviews of either of the add-on PSUs yet so judgement will have to be suspended till they are tested.
    It'll be interesting to see if anyone else jumps on this bandwagon or it turns out to be a deadend, after all, all the big names in power supplies are coming out with larger and more powerful units (750w plus) which would render these baby dedicated PSUs superfluous.
