be quiet! has an established reputation in the power supply market for those living in Europe, but the company isn’t quite as well known in North America. Looking to make further inroads into North America with the Straight Power 10 700W, it’s targeting a fairly lucrative mid-range segment for the power supply market.
It’s a competitive market though, as there are several established companies looking to attract consumers with various offerings. We’ve looked at quite a few power supplies in this range, and we’re anxious to see what be quiet! brings to the table, as we’ve previously tested some solid products from be quiet!, though those were premium power supplies, and this one isn’t quite as fancy.
That said, the be quiet! Straight Power 10 700W features simple styling, a mostly-modular setup, an 80Plus Gold certification. Let’s take a closer look at this power supply from be quiet! and see if it can deliver the goods to a demanding consumer base.
