    Nah...it's a 350W, but they're counting the heat output as well

    Features & Specifications:

    650W PSU
    Suitable for ATX systems and P4 - Suitable to damage they surely mean
    3 fans (2 x 80mm and 1 x extra large 120mm fan) for optimal cooling with lower noise - means now not as loud as a Boeing 747
    Complies to latest PFC power distortion standards - distortion!
    230V input voltage surely they means watts output!
    Low voltage power switch - to enable your system to burn before it destroys your house
    Noise level less than 29dB(A) - 29dB lower than a jet engine they meant
    Gold colour - Im impressed this got a mention
    Product size (HxWxD in mm): 85 x 150 x 170 - the only good thing!

    I feel like crying!

    Still, it doesn't beat the 800watts I'm getting out of dual PSU's... and that's from an Enermax & Antec... so the figures are a little more reliable.

    There's the clue. If there was a clone of the Mercedes S Class available for a tenner, there'd have to be something wrong with it, right?

    650watts is the peak output, the PSU simply cannot sustain that. Most decent PSU makers state the sustainable output. Read through these forums, people have had many a QTec blow up, set alight, or even kill their whole computer.

    What do we reckon the real power output is on this baby. I'd say somewhere in the 300-350W bracket.

    I love QTEC bashing threads

    I once sold an enermac 300w PSU on ebay and I decided to package it in an old Qtec PSU box. I bet he crapped himself when he opened the packaging.

    Insurance companies should have a clause in PC cover that states that they do not cover damage caused by civil conflict, acts of god, or QTEC power supplies.

    Anyone with a QTEC PSU reading this thread should seriously run to the nearest supplier and aquire a 1/2 decent PSU before their timebomb waits to go off....

    tick...tick....tick....
