Reviewed at Techpowerup. Really nice low load efficiency. Would like to see it in SPCR's anechoic chamber :)

Better still the a review of the V450S version which will presumably be more efficient at 22.5W.

Indeed this is a very interesting PSU that stands out from the pack. I can't figure out why Techpowerup stopped measuring at 40W; aren't many Haswell systems designed to idle at something like 20W these days?

I can only agree with pod03's comment: I have never seen the need for more than 300 Watts in a PSU (practically all of the consumer PSU market seems to be aimed at gamers and people who run their vacuum cleaner on an ATX PSU. Any idea why?), so I'm more likely to buy the 450W model, although obviously I would much prefer a 350W model if only there were one.

I have ordered a V450S and will review as best I can when it arrives.

V450S arrived today. Much quieter than the CWT PUFP255P taken out. More importantly for me idle dropped from about 28W to about 23W from the wall according to a Maplin killawatt equivalent. A little noise with my ear against the exhaust, principally perhaps bearing noise or some other sort of clicking/ticking noise. I can hear no significant noise from the system when I am sitting at my desk.
