Samsung 226BW

No one will deny the fact that Samsung makes great monitors. The original 225BW was hit with a rash of problems and with Dell's new 22" wide screen, Samsung's 226BW has some steep competition in the market.

If there is hardware, there is bound to be a box with some sort of advertising or information on it. We will start off this review with a quick look at the package that the Element comes in from SilverStone.

Typical SilverStone stylings are used with this package and I happen to really like the theme SilverStone uses with their power supplies. Everything that comes from SilverStone is mature and well designed, both their packages and the hardware contained inside.

Despite being very simple and straight forward, the package also contains some important information about the power supply that it holds. The most important feature of this power supply is the fact that it is the short cable version and the bright yellow starburst clearly conveys that.

The edges of the package play host to an incredible amount of information and if one was to pick this package up at a computer store, they would be able to read pretty much every feature and specification about the power supply. This side briefly describes cables available and shows some "interior" photos of the power supply.

The specifications edge covers the complete spec sheet as well as voltage chart for this power supply. The specifications section coming up will cover all of this information so we will continue to work our way around the package edges.

The full cable breakdown is listed here as well as an efficiency chart. SilverStone designs their power supplies to maintain an 80% efficiency rating throughout the power range. They also claim that efficiency increases as the draw does. The image here states 6 SATA power connections but this power supply only has 2. I am assuming the package was printed for a different power supply and that is why the error is there.

The last of the exterior panels provides a brief specifications list in six languages other than English. The information listed here is simply a brief excerpt from the specifications listed on the side with the voltage chart.

The power supply itself is securely squeezed into the package with simply a clear plastic bag cover the exterior of the unit. The cables are tucked around two edges adding protection while two sides are protected by the cardboard package walls. Some people may wish for a more elaborate packaging providing more security for the power supply but in my opinion, this is more than adequate for a power supply.
