Conclusion

...the Pure Power 10 range offers a competitive mix of performance, features and, subjectively, good looks.

be quiet! has today introduced a new range of what it calls entry-level PSUs. The Pure Power, now in its 10th iteration, has better cross-load regulation, above-average efficiency, and solid performance across the board.

Available in semi-modular form from 400W to 700W, the Pure Power 10 range offers a competitive mix of performance, features and, subjectively, good looks.

There are a few of caveats, mind. The price is a tad high compared to what else is available from a wide range of PSU guys, the warranty is short at three years, while the captive cabling means that builds may not look as easy on the eye as with fully-modular supplies

Solid, dependable and an improvement over the previous generation, add it to a shortlist if spending less than £100 on a supply.

The Good
 
The Bad

I have Be Quiet's Straight Power 10 powering one of my machines, and I'm happy with it so far. It is inaudible even under 60% load, and seems to be of good quality. It's a shame Hexus don't seem to have had one in for review as only version 8 is in the charts for comparison.

The Pure Power 10 looks solid (shame about the warranty cut though) and I might consider it for an upgrade of my other machine. I hope the prices will be reasonable by the time I get round to it, otherwise I'll stick with my old Antec PSU.
