    Default Enermax MaxTytan 1250W review @ Tomshardware

    Remember back to when we wondered why anyone would need more than 1kW from a PSU, given efficient graphics cards and a general trend away from multi-GPU configurations? Obviously, mining wasn't so popular back then. Nowadays it is, though, and every brand faces shortages of power supplies with more than 1kW of capacity. In some cases, we even have trouble finding review samples.

    PC enthusiasts generally aren't fond of miners, since they affect the hardware ecosystem so dramatically. Nevertheless, given the ongoing cryptocurrency craziness, we have to continue looking at high-capacity PSUs in order to figure out if they're suitable for mining rigs. You will find our suggestions in this article, which is based on models we've already evaluated.

    In the first pages we have videos of unboxing and innards. I hate videos!! They waste my time.

    I don't see any still pictures, so I will skip whatever content thevideos offer. So sad: the review is gimped so much. The PSU looks promising.

    If you're going to continue down the video route, then you should really look into improving the video quality. Direction, lighting, and streaming quality are all sub-par. Especially in comparison to your previous photography work.

    Due to the angle of the shot it is generally hard to tell what is actually being talked about or shown. A top down angle would probably be your best option for these live disassembles. Likewise, the lighting needs to be improved both in terms of amount of light as well as the diffusion.

    I don't know how much you can do with Tom's built in video player but the quality is garbage. A lot of artifacting, blurring, and poor bitstreaming.

    the video is shot in 4K with a GH5. Improving the quality in disassembly videos and the angle is easier said than done. This is why I also include the photos in the videos.

    Lighting yes I have good lights, I just didn't want to move them there. I will do as it seems.

    Streaming quality there isn't anything I can do. If you don't like Tom's, you can always see the videos in my youtube page: Hardware Busters

    I think you did a great job, as always.

    Your analysis are supposed to be deep in knowloadge, not photography masterpieces.

    The review was thorough and much appreciated. The videos that accompanied the review were time-wasters. If you are going down that road, include still pictures away from the videos.

    I wish there were pictures other than what's in the video too.

    Especially when Aris is such a skilled photographer and could always capture all the details and components in perfect lighting.
