    Default SilverStone ST75F-PT 750W Power Supply Review@ [H]

    http://www.hardocp.com/article/2016/...w#.VqcVrlKPH9I

    P.S. I'll never get used the naming of Silverstone's PSUs !! They are so difficult to be memorised!! ( EDIT: for example, the ST stands for Silverstone or Strider ?, also what does the F stands for? )
    In fact, the only Silverstone PSU that i can remember is Silverstone's Zeus which is so old just like the father of Gods himself!!
    Whoever is making Silverstone's marketing decicions should reconsider some things in my opinion!!

    You are right and we've been transitioning our naming for quite a few years now. However, it isn't easy revamping everything when you've been selling PSUs for over 10 years and there are model lines/names that you need to keep around for various purposes.

    In short, the ST does stand for Strider now. Whereas before, it also used to mean SilverStone (there are older Zues model that are called, ST65ZF for example).

    F stands for "Active PFC", this was devised in the early 2000s when Active PFC wasn't as popular. We kept it for the Strider Series since our customers are already familiar with it. You'll also note that 1000W+ plus models forgo the F since this is a limitation of our model name character count and also we won't make a PSU in that wattage level without Active PFC.

    Below is a short summary of most SilverStone PSU model names in case you are wondering:

    Gemini Series redundant PSUs

    Old - ST…GF (e.g. ST55GF)
    New - GM (e.g. GM500)

    Nightjar Series HTPC/fanless PSUs
    Old - ST…NF (e.g. ST30NF)
    New - NJ… (e.g. NJ520)

    SFX Series small form factor PSUs
    Old - ST…SF (e.g. ST45SF)
    New - SX… (e.g. SX600-G)

    Strider Series mainstream PSUs
    ST...-ES = Strider Essential Series (e.g. ST70F-ES)
    ST...-ESB = Strider Essential Bronze Series (e.g. ST50F-ESB)
    ST...-ESG = Strider Essential Gold Series (e.g. ST50F-ESG)
    ST...-P = Strider Plus Series (e.g. ST85F-P)
    ST...-G = Strider Gold Series (e.g. ST55F-G)
    ST...-PT = Strider Platinum Series (e.g. ST75F-PT)
    ST...-TI = Strider Titanium Series (e.g. ST80F-TI)

    Zeus Series industrial PSUs
    Old - ST...ZF (e.g. ST65ZF)
    New - ZU… = Zeus Series standard fixed cables (e.g. ZU1200)
    New - ZM… = Zeus Series with modular cables (e.g. ZM1200)

    Hopefully when older models are phased out in the next couple of years, everything will become much more clear!

    Given the opportunity from the names you presented, i believe that is much more "marketing-friendly" if you had divided your mainstream PSUs using 2 different names, Strider and another one (*Can you imagine the confusion for the customers if Seasonic was using their G-line for marketing 2 different gold series, like you do with the Essential Gold & Gold ? Instead, Seasonic has created Cyonic, in order to present their lesser quality line. -Or the G-series that separates their medium line from the higher line, X-series, Platinum series etc)
    To conclude, from my perspective as a customer, it would be easier for me to remember 2 different lines with 3-4 PSUs each, than to remember 1 line with 7 PSUs in it (Strider line)

    P.S. Your Nightjar or your SX line is much more friendly to the customer name-wise than your Strider line
