    People actually read and believe newegg reviews why?

    Haha... I don't know. I wish it was a feature Newegg never implemented. Or maybe at least they should moderate it, but only about 1% of Newegg's staff speaks English natively, so even that task would be futile.

    Well I like the ability to see what actual users of the supplies have to say. However, it is too obvious people who have not bought the components review them...and it is obvious there are shills on there as well....remember Enermax asking people to make good reviews for them?

    Not to mention all the idiots like the above reviewer thinking that your PSU can provide more DC output than AC input pulled from the wall....I would love it if my PSU provided 125% efficiency like that dude thinks his PSU provides.

    One of my favorite types of reviews is when dealing with system memory. The Giel memory I bought for my one computer had bad reviews because it would do exactly what it was advertised to do. Everyone was slamming it because it wouldn't overclock more than just a little bit. I was like WTF people? It does what it says and does it well and that is why you don't like it?

    I like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143166

    The graphics card works... user "thinks" the fan should be pointing the other way so he give it one egg. WTF?!?!

    Newegg reviews are stupid.
