CE on primary and W on secondary. I don't see any info on the website. Interesting
Tailor-made for Seasonic. You may see them elsewhere if SS didn't pay for exclusivity.

Just as a reference. The only fair comparison is among units of the same class, regardless of whether the price premium feels justified - feelings tend to be biased, and we're striving for objectivity in these evaluations...

As above, that's a personal attitude towards cutting-edge tech, and I can respect that. Still no reason to dock this unit

Where I personally see an issue is the retail pricing in Europe. The lowest price for that unit I can find is €215,92.
EU is always going to be more expensive than US, nothing new there, sadly... Seeing stuff on the 'Egg that's 30% cheaper than over here will forever bring a bitter tear to my eye

Why? Obviously the analog implementation is just as good. What do you gain by going digital in this case? More complexity, more points of failure and higher price as well as somewhat lower efficiency at very low loads.

And hey, as far as I'm concerned, such precise tuning in full analog should be considered an art form


As for my own comments, did Seasonic give an official statement regarding the performance of the first sample? Does it belong to a known-not-as-impressive batch, do they claim it's a one-off, or is the performance variance significant on this model?

Otherwise, a well-deserved 10/10, would consider it a Prime example.

Great review, Wolfie!
Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.
