4. Final thoughts

The OCZ ZS-750 Watt is a budget proposal for casual gaming systems. It performed decently during our simple tests, while its operation was silent and stable.

Although it lacks characteristics like modular design, DC-DC converters or Gold efficiency, the OCZ ZS-750 is based on a an older but proven design. Besides the small distance among the SATA and peripheral connectors, the product comes with a minimum 80Plus Bronze certification and balances quality, performance and efficiency.

The OCZ ZS750 does a decent job at voltage regulation for a budget power supply. The unit was able to stay within 3% of specification on both the 5V and 12V rails. This went up a little bit higher on the 3.3V rail . All of the voltages were well within ATX specifications and nothing to be worried about.

Overall, you can find a ZS 750W for about $99, a price that boosts price/performance ratio and renders it a good deal for a mid-range system.
