When it comes to high-end power supplies, the market has never offered so many choices as today. We have several manufacturers jumping onto this bandwagon and offering numerous models rated in the kilowatt+ range. From previous reviews, I can also state that most of these "enthusiast level" products are being offered at a premium price.
Enter Tuniq, a relatively new company working under the Sunbeam banner, offering a 1200 watt behemoth and wondering if it will make it in a crowded segment of the market. What can they offer that will make their product stand away and above the competition?
While their basic feature set is pretty commonplace, the addition of the adapters as a standard shows these folks are looking at the needs of the power user. They have also made certain to add small items heavily shielded power cords and Velcro cable straps showing that they actually listen to users who are looking to buy this type of product. But the thing that caught my eye the most was the price. A quick check online showed this unit available for $289US. While still an expensive upgrade, this comes in a good deal lower than many other 1200 watt units that are available. I am used to seeing the price point closer to the $350 range, so the lower cost should help you make certain to get a quality product for a more affordable price.
Bottom line... If you are looking for high-end power, there are a huge number of choices. Looking for quality high-end power? That number goes down. Looking for quality high-end power at a reasonable cost? Look no further than the Tuniq Ensemble 1200.
