    Bottom Line: The Powmax Demon 580W has red LED's, red weave over the cables and red power connectors, a Bo-Sox fan can really get his fix. At less than $50 its inexpensive, but is it any good?

    When I received my Powmax Demon 580W, the first thing I noticed is that it was lighter than any other power supply I had ever used before. Even thinking back to 250 AT power supplies I used back in 1996, I could only say "This thing is LIGHT!"

    And I think I know what black chrome is, or at least what black chrome should mean. To me, black chrome is a term used to describe a smoked mirror finish, similar to what Raid Max and Ultra call "Titanium," which in itself is a mis-nomenclature because Titanium is actually a dull gray color with a slight pinkish hue. It polishes up nicely (take a look at a titanium bicycle frame,) but never turns a mirror finish. This power supply was clearly BLACK.

    Unlike the other power supplies we looked at so far, this housing is smaller (although the fan being mounted on the outside gives the PSU the same overall length of your typical power supply.)
    Despite this, Powmax only chose to utilize about 70% of the space inside. All of the components are a little more than half the size of the components in the other power supplies.
    The heat sinks also are about the size of the little CVS Pharmacy Extra Care card you would put on your key chain. I'm a bit surprised this is a 580W power supply. I guess we'll see.
