    Arrow EVGA G1 Plus 850W Review

    We haven't seen an EVGA unit on the load tester in a little while, so let's take a look at one now. I have the brand new G1 Plus 850 watt unit in front of me, and we're going to see what it can do.

    I've been waiting for this review for so long. EVGA choose FSP for their G1+ Lineup. In Malaysia, this power supply are vastly available and the G3 are running out of stock. I hope they can make next lineup for Superflower OEM. Anyway, great review by Jonnyguru. Waiting for Ares from Tomshardware.

    Consumers shouldn't choose products by the company who manufactures them, though. I don't care who designed and manufactured my PSU, phone, or car; I care if they perform well and live long.

    @Orion. I agree with that too. But the OEM plays a major part in creating a good quality power supply. It is not that i don't like FSP. I just like a reputable company and well known OEM for creating the excellent power supply. FSP is one of them. They also creates power supply for server. For me, safety and quality are my main priority than price. But the price needs to be affordable too.

    Therefore you care who designed and manufactured them

    I drive a Honda, not a Jugo, as I'm too poor to buy cheap

    Apple iMacs perform well and live long, but they are glued shut and so not easy to repair.

    How could you possibly ever come to this conclusion is completely beyond me.

    I don't know what it is you were talking about in the rest of your post, so I don't know if it's relevant or not. I don't use Dremels, whatever they are.

    OK, I have changed the example to Honda cars

    I apologize for assuming you knew what a Dremel tool is, I had added a picture of a collet to help (now deleted); just happened to be a repair I did this morning.


    There is also the idea of soft failure (I'll stick to power supplies)

    * Imagine one supply performs well and lives long, then finally just gives up the ghost without warning

    * Imagine a second supply that does not live quite so long, but gives all sorts of hints (rattling fan) that it is on the way out

    I would prefer the second as it might lead to the least amount of down time, and I might not get caught out at an inopportune moment

    When you want to know about power supplies, you go to this forum; why? reputation, you are most likely to get help. So it is with manufacturers who have earned a reputation for units that perform well and live long.
