Truepower Trio is the new series of
supplies from Antec, known to provide very dependable power supplies for
not a lot of money. Let's take a look at the new small kid on the block.
I say small kid because this is the smallest installment of the new Trio
series, they also offer a
550 Watt, and a
650 Watt. If you ever
wondered why they call these things TruePower, or why it isn't a 1000
Watt PSU like we are seeing advertised now, it is because these are not
your OEM Power Supplies, or that great "FREE POWER SUPPLY" that came
with your $60 case.

person having a bad out of box experience with an Antec PSU, I am sure
they are out there, but considering the number of other companies that
would not be true for, I would call that a definite bonus.
