    Does it help if we tell you that we appreciate it?

    A slight blip in the transient tests is all it takes to disappoint you? What else could there be? That thing showed stellar performance all the way around.

    Sure like a few of the other sites, we received a second sample. It's not like the first unit failed and we asked for a second one (which happens). Seasonic actually notified us about the issue prior to Jeremy being able to complete the testing process. They could have waited to see if our unit presented the issue first and then informed us after the fact but they didn't. They did the honorable thing and contacted us, that alone should mean something.

    I don't know how "new" you are to the site, but we can see that you're new to the forums. It's been stated time and time again in the forums. Jeremy gets paid on a per review basis. It doesn't matter what make or model, what color or size, or even what race. He gets paid a set amount per review regardless of who sent it and if it passed or failed.

    Maybe ask a question or two before you go throwing out accusations like that. Most don't think anything about it, but it's comments like that that could potentially harm a site or a reviewers credibility.

    "can the rest of the line do this well? Good question. I look forward to finding out the answer."

    Are there more models on the way?

    My own PSU's are 5-6 years old, now. They ought to last a while but these look sweet. The 600w fanless and the 650W look interesting.

    BTW -- fine review. Thanks for doing these. Your reviews are just technical enough for us non-techs to follow.
    CPU: Core i7 8700k, HT enabled, all 6 cores OC'd to 4.8GHz, Vcore = 1.24v
    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X
    SSD1: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB TLC; SSD2: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB 3-bit MLC

    if this PSU doesn't get a perfect 10 then no PSU should get a perfect 10.
    -it achieves amazing ripple suppression and voltage regulation WITHOUT using a DSP or in-cable capacitors. this greatly reduces possible points of failure.
    -93% efficiency at 10% load on a 115V input.... it doesn't just meet titanium spec, it destroys it.
    -it's priced pretty reasonable, especially when you consider that there is nothing else like it. EVGA's/Super Flower's T2 use cable capacitors (which make sit as pain to custom sleeve the cables) and other competitors just don't perform as well.

    Time for a "get those dang kids off my lawn" post.

    Some people just haven't been around long enough to remember when the PSU itself was a major source of heat...

    When you were burning 400 watts with a .70 efficiency PSU...

    172 watts of heat being used by the PSU alone.

    So yeah, getting to 93 % is really pushing the limit.

    Many years ago, saying that you had reached perfection, a 10 out of 10 was a very subjective rating...obviously there was just a shed load of room for better.

    I guess they could start taking away 1/100 points now

    Start 9.99 rating to differentiate from the 9.97 units.

    I am very sorry we are not able to please you and that you are not satisfied with OW's scoring. Our R&D have worked long and hard on the PRIME project and this is the best product we have brought to market in our 41 years of history. We are very proud of our PRIME and at the same time we are very grateful to OW to bestow the highest score on our product.

    It is a bit sad to read your posts accusing us of paying for the review as this is something we have never done and never will do. I really hope you will be able to find something worthwhile to do with your time, be constructive and add value to this excellent Forum.

    Thank you.

    This has to be the most polite "fuck off m8" I've ever read in my entire life. Don't misunderstand, I 100% agree, this is an excellent product. The transient isn't perfect, but it doesn't need to be and is obviously within the ATX spec. And it won't ever make a difference in anything ever. It's pretty clear this unit actually deserves the 10/10 rating it received.
