Just for that?

I'm a bit disappointed too by the latest Seasonics (and their reviews) but, to be honest and kind, that expression ("a paid review") look like "some good trolling".

It's not just that, it's also things like "you know, I could go on for hours on this one..." when clearly it isn't THAT good. To me this 10 feels a bit far fetched and un-jonnyguru-y.

Even this affirmation is groundless (without further argumentations): in the OW's review that (second) unit actually performed THAT good, despite that latest, specific OW's comment.

Still doesn't feel like a perfect 10 to me. More like "let's give Seasonic a perfect 10 too cuz we love them yay" kind of review.

If you know OW you know he doesn't score against run-on transient tests unless they are out of spec. No reason to unfairly change his methodology for this review.

You're right but those lines being so straight is a pretty common thing and easily achievable so i thought a unit shouldn't get a perfect 10 while failing to deliver such a basic and trivial yet still important thing.

The Prime is making me drool, but EVGA has the 750W T2 for $139 after rebate until today. The Prime 650W is $159 which is ok since i'm only running a single 1080. Also to the naysayers, this unit has 2-3% better efficienty at 10% and 20% loads than even the EVGA T2, which is the load most computers stay in. Thats like in another class on its own. Its like Diamond efficiency!

Oh man decisions decisions. What should i buy today!

Do you feel the other perfect-10 reviews posted over the years were also biased and unfounded in their praise of the reviewed unit? Please explain why if so, and please point out the differences if not.

If you are going to throw around accusations of fanboyism and illegitimacy for financial gain, then you also need to bear the burden of substantiating your allegations with more than "it just feels like it".

Otherwise, you're more than welcome to interpret the review in your own way, after looking at the facts as they are presented. Actually, you're openly invited to disagree with the scoring and the verdict, but not to dispute the methodology and the results without very concrete arguments.

Thank you! :)

A less overkill power supply? You probably be OK with a quality 400W PSU, 300W could even be enough, but it all depends on the other components.

Because I don't score those tests unless they violate ATX spec.

My bank account has two dollars in it. Nobody paid for this review but me... this is extremely financially unrewarding work.
