In Win GreenMe 650W

In Win sent us their newest model GreenMe rated at 650W. Billed as an eco-friendly alternative to the usual PSUs, In Win boasts about the reduced energy costs associated with the high efficiency design. Given the eco emphasis, we'll examine how the PSU does in those areas along with the usual tests.

In Win uses an environmental friendly packaging composed of recycled materials. There's also a sticker stating that the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) gets one dollar for every GreenMe sold. However, there is some debate over how WWF is funded, with allegations that they have questionable industry ties. Regardless of whether that's true or not, we do like the idea of helping environmental associations.

The real question of course is how environmentally friends the GreenMe PSU line is in practice. Is 80 Plus Bronzer efficient enough for energy conservationists? And where are the lower power models, as a "green PC" probably doesn't need 650W? We'll leave the debate on those areas up to the reader; for now, let's see what you get with the GreenMe and how it performs.

    No matter what the donation, support or mention is ANY help is appreciated and all adds up.
    In-Win donated a power supply for a Custom PC Mod/Build that auctioned to pay for the recycling, refurbishing and reclaiming of scrap by disabled veterans for disabled veterans.
    This one item teamed up with a few others build a customized computer called Purple Heart - MERIT.
    That auctioned off and all funds donated to PCs4VETS.
    PCs4VETS used some of the funds to sponsor a E-WASTE Event in San Diego in November 2012.
    The E-waste was a success, Veterans took the waste and broke it all down reclaiming metals and rare earth compounds for recycling. $1,000 of dollars worth in the semi load.
    Those funds and the remaining funds paid to refurbish 100's of laptops. We have the cost down to $20/laptop, from donation to veterans door.
    1 simple donation lead and built up to 100's of tools put into the hands of needy veterans and families.
    It does not have to millions in donations to change the world, a life, save resources or even a life.
    Thank You IN-WIN for helping me change the world,
    Al Shuryan
    Co-chair PCS4VETS Advisory Council
