Silverstone announced at CES 2010 that it would consolidate its power supply lines into a single line, the Strider series. The Striders are 80PLUS certified, with the Strider Plus models at 80PLUS Silver certified (85% efficiency). All Striders are fully modular for easier cleaning or replacement. Silverstone provided ThinkComputers with a 750W version of its Strider Plus series. The review is here.

The black box features a picture of the fully modular unit and the 80PLUS Silver logo prominently, as well as the Silverstone logo and the wattage of the unit. The rear lists some of the features of the unit, but the text is incredibly difficult to read due to its small size and dark gray color on a black background. The side is a bit better, showing the output table and some of the other specifications.
The unit is very well-packed inside the box, but there is a bit of wiggle room. It includes the unit, its cables, a power cable, screws and ties, and some manuals.
