Final Thoughts and Conclusions

The Kingwin Lazer Gold Series LZG-1000 PSU with Crystal Cube modular cable management delivered good voltage regulation (especially on the important +12V rails) with relatively clean outputs and very good efficiency.  The LZG-1000 PSU is quiet at low to mid power levels, includes a good assortment of both fixed and modular cables/connectors, and features a blue LED fan for added visual impact.  Overall the LZG-1000 performed very well.  I would like to see Kingwin extend the Lazer Gold Series warranty beyond 3-years however.

The Kingwin LZG-1000 PSU is currently available and typically sells for around $220 USD.
