    Arrow Raidmax Monster Power RX-700AT Review

    In the world of power supplies, companies are always trying to one up each other. Sometimes, a company previously not known for producing the best units on the market spies an opportunity to make a move for the better and improve their station in the power supply game. That's exactly what happened last year when Raidmax saw Andyson come out with an 80 Plus Titanium beast of a unit and... right out of nowhere... perform like the best units on the market. I remember being completely astounded by how good of a unit the N700 was, and wondering when some lucky company in North America would snap that unit up. Folks, Raidmax is that company. Let's see if the RX-700AT retains all that awesomeness I found so impressive a year ago.

    I don't like the two year warranty. Should've been at least five I think.

    Eh, I'd hope to see these selling cheaper than $140. It may be Titanium, but only barely passed Titanium. Unless you're really into those tiny money savings over the period of many years, or run your PC at full throttle 24/7, I'll take other options on the market with "mythic" or near mythic voltage regulation and ripple and a longer warranty. Like the 750 P2, as you mentioned in your article.

    I don't know why companies keep forgetting that feature on their boxes.

    not the manufacturer matters but the series...

    You won't compare a VW UP against an Audi Q7, would you?

    The second one is overpriced.
