Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The Kingwin Lazer Series LZ-1000 PSU with Crystal Cube modular cable management delivered good voltage regulation (especially on the important +12V rails) with relatively clean outputs and good efficiency.  The LZ-1000 PSU is very quiet at low to mid power levels, includes a good assortment of both fixed and modular cables/connectors, and features white and blue LED lighting for added visual impact.  Overall the LZ-1000 id a good job and is available at an affordable price.

The Kingwin LZ-1000 PSU is currently available and typically sells for around $165 USD, which makes it an attractive value for a 1,000W PSU.
