The Picobox X3-ATX-300 Mini is PicoPSU for small form factor PC builds. The X3-ATX-300 supports wide voltage range compared to most PicoPSUs, which are 12v only. The X3-ATX-300 is most comparable to HDPLEX.

Over Temperature Protection
PicoPSUs come in two types, 12V only and Wide Voltage. 12V only support 12V AC Adapters, which go upto maximum 240W and become expensive after 200W vs 19V AC Adapters.
Wide Voltage PicoPSUs support range of voltages, commonly between 16 – 28V. Most high wattage AC Adapters are typically 19.5V, which are supported.
The Picobox X3-ATX-300 uses 7.4 *5mm power input, so only AC Adapters with 7.4*5.0mm w/center PIN input connector are supported. They must also have a voltage between 16 – 24V.
Because the X3-ATX-300 is the direct alternative to the HDPLEX, we compared the two PSUs below.
