Introduction & Packaging
Antec produce some of the most popular PSUs on the market, their PGS series has been a popular choice for many years now and their more recent EDGE series are winning people over too. Of course, not everyone has the budget, or the technical need for a high-end gaming PSU and that’s where the VPS550 comes in. This is a low to midrange power supply, offering 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, 550W of power, non-modular cables and a very affordable £40 price tag. Sure it’s not that exciting, but a budget-friendly gaming system or office computer will no doubt be an ideal target for Antec’s latest.
The packaging is nicely designed, showing all the main specifications right on the front, including the support for Haswell, active PFC and continuous power.
The same details are on the back of the box, as well as the multi-language breakdown.
In the box, you’ll find some warranty information, four mounting screws and the AC power cable.
