When I received this power supply for testing and review I was more than a little doubtful that a small 350 watt unit could maintain itself in any regard when pitted against an enthusiast rig. After all is said and done, I found myself to be pleasantly surprised. Though a little light in the 3.3v rail, it performed on par with many larger capacity models.
As far as price is concerned, the Super Tornado looks to be in the US$80 price range, so doesn't come in at too hefty a price tag. While you will certainly find other power supplies that can outperform this model, you'll find their prices range a good deal higher as a rule.
Bottom line...If you're getting into the enthusiast arena for the first time and are looking for quality power on a budget, you'll find a worthy competitor with this product. With a decent price and performance on par with larger power supplies, this one bears consideration. But if you're making big plans for several lighting effects, go ahead and get something with a higher overall power rating.
Good overall performance
Able to handle enthusiast system
Only one SATA adapter
Slightly low output on 3.3v rail
Rating - 8.5 out of 10
