I'll be using the Winmate 130W PSU for my latest HTPC build and am trying to decide between two Mean Well AC/DC converters. Does anyone have experience with their RS (G3) and HRP (G5) lines?

Here's a link to the data sheets:

RS-150 series: http://www.meanwell.com/search/rs-150/default.htm
HRP-150 series: http://www.meanwell.com/search/hrp-150/default.htm

The main difference seems to be active PFC, slightly higher efficiency, and longer warranty with the HRP. The higher-end HRP line goes for ~$37 more than the RS (basically double). Since I'll be keeping this computer for awhile, I'm tempted to go with the HRP, but thought I'd get some input first.

My plan is to mount the Mean Well inside a Streacom FC5 Evo case along with the Winmate, similar to this build: http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/streacom-fc5-fan-less-htpc-case.107104/#post-859643

Also came across this Traco Power 120W AC/DC converter that might be interesting for use with a Winmate:

Traco TXH120-COV - http://www.powergatellc.com/traco-power-txh120-cov-power-supply.html

93% efficiency and the lowest ripple/noise specs that I've seen. Location of the Vout terminals is also more convenient for use in the Streacom case. Only downside is the price, which at $96 makes it the most expensive of all the options I've considered.
