    I'll wait until customers get first hand experiences with Lepa's customer service before deciding whether or not I'll be buying their products.

    Personally I wouldn't touch a lepa.









    I apologise but a bad leprosy joke had to be done.

    Well the Number E134014 is Enermax

    Look next to the 80 Plus badge on the second image, then cross reference with the below Article I would say its a rebranded Enermax unit or its from whatever OEM makes said Enermax units.

    http://www.10stripe.com/articles/who-made-your-power-supply.php

    and

    http://database.ul.com/cgi-bin/XYV/...n=versionless&parent_id=1073787374&sequence=1

    yup its a rebranded Enermax NAXN 82+ 850w

    specifically: ENM850EWT B850-MA[%][*r]

    PSU Review Basically
    http://www.kitguru.net/components/power-supplies/zardon/enermax-naxn-850w-power-supply-review/

    So in the End i do not think its Sirtec as the Andantech review above states, as the UL numbers dont match, according to UL numbers and listings its an Enermax unit which would mean if I am correct that the Andantech review is pretty much BS in terms of OEM info, the rest looks spot on tho.

    Looks a whole lot like my older Corsair 750 TX down to the orange labeling.

    Not really new since it's Enermax's "affordable" brand.

    So do you think that Lepa is actually a brand owned by Enermax?

    Enermax is now under Ecomaster, but Ecomaster now have their own brand Lepa. They share some units however. Only some, since the cheaper Lepa units aren't available for Enermax.

    "Affordable" in a sense that they have cheaper PSUs than Enermax would have. But that doesn't mean that Lepa won't have expensive PSUs.

    Ecomaster? Sounds like a brand of combi boiler! :laugh: I can picture it now: "Yeah man, I've got an Ecomaster in my pimped out rig! :rockout:" Yeah, ridiculous, lol.

    Thanks for the update. :toast:

    LOL and that's another "confusing" brand. Sirtec and Sirfa :laugh:. Sirtec established Sirfa as a "sub-group" of theirs (Sirfa was short for "Sirtec facility" it's their primary facility in mainland China), but eventually sold Sirfa and it became its own brand.

    Enermax's NAXN82+ series are Lepa's B series. The CWT-built NAXN82+ units (the lower wattage ones) are multi-rail however, while they are single-rail for the B series.
