I must say that I was I was expecting a bit more meat in this article, then I saw this
thread speaking of an overview.

I was curious because Thermaltake has a "not recommended" reputation in the power
supply department. I know for a fact that their "silent" range was great, so I
was wondering about this one. The CWT stickers let me wonder if this unit is coming
from a CWT design, who also has it's ups and downs.

While this might be true in the past I do not think it is true now. I know from my own experience that the budget oriented TR2 is a very stable and well made PSU that I have zero issues with despite having putting in over a hundred of over the last 2 years. The Toughpower lineup has always had a solid reputation as well.

Ya their TR2 units are very good. I had a few of the Toughpower units as well and they worked very well.

In my humble opinion, it's a broadened description, not a review.

You guys know how PSU reviews are done so I won't say anything more.

 

Scratch that. I didn't see that it is written as 'overview' not 'review'.
