In-Win Development Inc has today announced its environmentally conscious range of GreenMe power supplies that are designed from the ground up with green credentials.

In-Win describes its new GreenMe concept as "designed to protect our environment, our goal to create a bigger change with every subsequent step we take towards greater environmental responsibility." To reinforce this philosophy, In-Win is committed to donating US$1 of every unit sold to WWF, to further protect the environment.

... is nothing to be proud about, neither is it truly "green". Branding over content, once again. Avoid.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_PLUS#Misleading_power_supply_advertising

In 2012, you really shouldn't be buying anything less than Gold, Platinum, or Titanium PSUs. 80PLUS is a standard from 2005. "Bronze" is a PSU that didnt meet the new requirements set in 2008 and onwards.
It is nothing special but if the prices are right it would be ok. And we know nothing about content so we can't really say anything about that. And I don't agree on the buying thing either. There are plenty of good PSU's out there with lower ratings. If you have the money, sure go for the max but often money isn't exactly overflowing.

Recycled cardboard boxes, "natural soy ink print", and charitable donations. ... Sure sounds like a friendlier commitment to being green than leaving out the power cable :D.

You've got to watch out for the price as you move up the efficiency ladder. In a low-power home-system, a higher efficiency PSU may never be worth its up-front cost (that is, it would make a negligible difference to your electricity bill).

Also, I'm not sure why you linked to that "Misleading ... Advertising" part of the Wikipedia article, as if implying that these aren't 80 PLUS certified. In any case, they are.

Do you work for In.Win or their marketing company?

Do you really think the cardbox box they come in represents even 1% of the environmental impact of a PSU? In fact, perhaps leaving out the cable IS environmentally friendly since 90% of PSUs are bought to upgrade an existing PSU or an existing PC that is going to be binned. So why incl. a cable that will never be used. Not very "green"!

Why are you taking about "low-power home"? and at the same time not ready to pay a premium for saving electricity and reducing your carbon footprint? "Green" isnt about cost benefit in a pure financial sense, but about a moral obligation to clean up our act.

And if you were a PC enthusiast, you would have thought about where all that wasted power goes? Where? HEAT. That means a hotter PC, or a fan working harder, or an airconditioner working harder. If you live in a cold country, this saves you heating bills... or rather... what you spend on wasted heat in your PSU could in theory save you heating bills. But if you live in a hot country, or hot summer, this only adds to costs on other cooling equipment and possible LOWER OVERCLOCKS and noisy fans. Please don't tell me about how overclocking isnt green...

Before you "love" this "natural soy ink" product, take a look at the certifying organisation: http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/ps...ENT INC._GREENME550_ECOS 2970_550W_Report.pdf and http://www.plugloadsolutions.com/ps...PEMENT_IP-P600GQ3-2_ECOS 2556_600W_Report.pdf. Look! Even InWin does better PSUs.

This "PSU" is mutton dressed as green-lamb.

You know anything about them? Never heard of them before..

EDIT: After a quick google it seems they were rebranded FSP's like 10 years ago. :p

Besides the Commander (CWT), Commander II (Andyson) and Glaciar (ATNG) PSUs from In Win, every other PSU of theirs is made by PowerMan.


Yeah, looks like they (PowerMan) stopped rebranding FSP-made PSUs and started making their own.

Who do they think they are fooling with this gimmick and this crap? Not enthusiasts.

If the review from 2008 is still accurate, it's hit or miss, much like In Win's Andyson PSUs.
