Like other models in the LZW series, the 1000 is painted flat black, with a cosmetic decal on one side and specifications label on top. The sheet metal seems about average thickness, and the casing is about 3cm longer than normal. The honeycomb pattern exhaust grill is very open to airflow, and there are no other vents other than the 140mm fan intake. The overall impression is of a decent but not exceptional quality casing, with good quality parts inside.
This time around, I've decided to forego the photos of the interior. From what can be seen through the fan vanes, it looks similar to the LZW-550, with smallish heatsinks and quality 105¬įC capacitors. I have little doubt that the fan is the same model as the one used in the LZ-550. In all honesty, my technical knowledge of PCB-level components is not extensive enough to add much value to the review. For such commentary, you're better off visiting Johnnyguru.com; their reviews do feature interesting commentary on such details. I'm more interested in the end results, and with the possible exception of the fan, no longer much interested in the fine details inside. For most users, the PSU is a black box, and what matters most is how it performs.
