    Huntkey Enterprise Group announces that Huntkey 500W rated power supply has been certified by 80PLUS PLATINUM, which stands for that Huntkey 80PLUS line-up products finished from standard 80PLUS certification to the highest level of 80PLUS certification -- PLATINUM.

    80PLUS certification has been well-known by most of end-users. On October 2009, 80PLUS organization had added specification for Platinum efficiency level as its highest level for efficiency. For the higher certification levels, the requirement of 0.9 or better power factor was extended to apply to 20% and 50% load levels, as well as at 100% load. The Platinum level requires 0.95 or better power factor for servers.

    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.

    It has to be a pretty darn good PSU if it can get 80 Plus Platinum.
