    I meant for home use, not for professional use or reviews. The Brennenstuhl Primera-Line PM231E is more precise than most PSU with software readings. I've checked some of those cheap powermeters back in the day versus calibrated Chroma powermeter: https://www.computerbase.de/2014-05/...rblick-test/2/ There is some difference which makes it useless for R&D or reviews but the decent models are fine to check powerdraw of your PC, TV or sound system.

    Chroma powermeter is also useless, but you already know this

    No, that's more like 12,5/13mm
    They are too short to be 10mm

    Seller confirms 10mm

    I suspect fakes

    Hi, This is Elun from NZXT. We are continuously working on our firmware for improving the voltage readings. For example, right now the readings of 12V rails could reach around +/-1% comparing to the measurement by the instrument.

    I believed the readings is precisely enough. However, please note that we are not doing an Instrument level unit, it is just a power supply.

    @Philip the decent power meters start from 1k and not just 20-30 euros. Those cheapo ones besides highly inaccurate, especially at light and very high loads, have also very slow polling rates so they are practically useless for measuring a PSU under real life conditions (or with fast loads at least). However measuring the DC Watts is quite easy and affordable, so I really wonder why it is so hard for the manufacturers to provided accurate DC readings at least.
    Hi, Aris, This is Elun. We have made the firmware update for our E series PSU. Right now the readings would be accurate enough!
