    It doesn't get hot. It has active cooling. See post #1.

    What is your spec and who did you buy it off??

    Even the minimum spec for a P870 (65W CPU plus 150W GPU) is too much for a single 230W

    righto that makes sense

    When one of my adapters deteriorated a bit and was occasionally cutting out I read that uneven voltage output unevenly distributes load across the joiner, my experience was one got really hot and the other didn't and when I swapped out the hot 330W with another the problems stopped

    Naturally the 780W wouldn't have this issue.

    Seen mixed reviews on this. Personal experience w/330W (plus AC-100 power converter box) has been good though. Bought 4x330Watts plus 2 converter boxes (home and work) and never had an issue.

    Mixed reviews? Can you please post some links? I haven't seen any negative reviews at all.

    The converter boxes are a nice solution, but they require 2 heavy PSU's + 2x the cables of 1 carry PSU + the converter box and it's cable.

    We had been asking as a community for years for a single PSU solution, and after a lot of work this compact 780w PSU is still the only one available.

    It's awesome, if a bit expensive, but it's likely a niche product for now without a lot of production runs, so it's going to be pricier than the mass produced smaller PSU's.

    If the price were the same as 2 x 330w + AC100 cost, which would you prefer to carry? :)

    The noise factor and cost would be difficult to justify an upgrade from the dual bricks and converter. I purchased the Panther 5D version (P570WM) w/12-core proc to run data analyses and needed “portability”...the size of the laptop was always the biggest limitation. If I was going to transport the 12 pound laptop, the bricks and converter were the molehill on a mountain :)

    All that said, if there was a choice with where to start...I would go with the 780W. Assuming Eurocomm keeps its end of the deal and offers different cables in the near future.

    Heads up, these are on ebay right now for 400 USD + 30 USD shipping (about 10% below retail).
