An HX1050 has appeared on CWT's UL cert page. There's hope that it's a CWT PUC Silver unit, which is the updated version of the PUC platform used in the HX1000 with higher efficiency and better +12V ripple suppression. But it's still not 80PLUS Gold and is still massive and will still likely cost the same or more than the HX1000. At least it wouldn't be completely out of date though.
Edit: Are there any PSU's using the updated CWT PUC platform?
