The final plan successfully get through the strict 80PLUS PLATINUM certification, with efficiency up to 90.63%, 92.62%, 90.31% at separately 20%, 50% and 100% load condition. "This is our first time to cooperation with Infineon's experts. However it is an impressive and nice cooperation. Their focus on professional field is admirable. We want to show our greatly appreciation for them," A Huntkey spokesman said.

Just because it has a Platinum certificate doesn't mean it's always reliable. Huntkey has released some pretty shoddy PSU's in the past (probably due to bad OEMs)

Actually it's more like they are the shoddy OEM, they make their own units. that being said they can produce some pretty good units.

Too much for anyone to care really.
There are always better products for the price of such "quality" Huntkey units.
