Final Thoughts

 

When it comes to features in a power supply, many folks want something that is modular in design. Of course, these units normally have the primary and supplemental power cables hard-wired into the internals. The Topower PowerBird 1100 features something a little different in that they have made everything modular. While I was a little concerned at the beginning of my testing, there were no problems at all and the power was plentiful and true. This is a feature that I could get used to.

 

Cabling was also abundant and cable length was adequate for a vast majority of enclosures being used. Unless you are making use of one of the mondo full tower monsters that are around, you should have no problems at all with the standard cabling that comes with this PSU.

 

Aesthetically, the PowerBird 1100 is pleasing to the eye, especially for those using a windowed case. The chrome looking exterior has a very nice sheen and will set off your system components nicely. Also of note is the lack of any lighting, so if you already have some lighting effects in your box, you will not have to worry about any color clashes.

 

As far as pricing is concerned, this unit has a MSRP of $299.99US but can be found online for about $289. For a power supply at this power range and with this set of features, the PowerBird 1100 falls close to the bottom of the price range. This gives us a lot of power for less than many similarly featured power supplies. Very nice.
