    On the section of the review where Wolf dissected the unit, is that big silver rectangle to the left just a huge block of solder? Why?

    I'd guess that huge pad is just conductor for common ground on secondary, but I might be wrong.

    It's a piece of copper replacing the four shunt resistors used in Enermax's Platimax/MaxRevo multi-rail designs.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    Hi OklahomaWolf,

    I wanted to find out about your recent review you did on the Lepa G1600 (found here):

    http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory3&reid=283

    vs. your review of the Silverstone ST1500 you did a few years back (found here):

    http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory3&reid=175

    What I did here was highlight the Oscilloscope Results page and wanted to find out, which is still the better PSU? I would be great to get your thoughts. Hope to hear from you soon. PNugg...

    To add insult to injury, Silverstone is currently more expensive @Newegg.

    Ok Wolf, I know about the results (BTW, you did a great job on both reviews), but what about the reputation of the Lepa company. For example, I KNOW the guys personally at Silverstone Tek - at the California Offices (Joel - Head Tech Support & David - Returns Tech Person). Is there an office here that Lepa (or Enermax or Ecomaster). I mean who would I call to not only return something but also build an establishing relationship. I would also think that would still exists. Or at least that's what Silverstone has ALWAYS provided. It's not just about how much better the G1600 is over the ST1500, it's the whole picture.

    The reason why I'm differing to you is because you're the ONLY ONE (so far) that has done this expansive and thorough testing. So please let me know what you can... Thanks...

    Expense has NOTHING to do with it. Believe me, I'm learning some painful lessons (like we all have) as we try to save a few dollars here and there... So I can't go for that.

    In fact what's more concerning is that you have such a great PSU (with the Lepa G1600) but why less $$$? Cheaper parts, or is it that these PSUs are changing to make things more efficient with less expensive parts. I mean when Wolf opened the G1600 PSU I said to myself - "where is everything?" Very clean, tight internal setup; very unlike the Silverstone ST1500. That thing is filled to rim with all kinds of parts, heatsinks, etc. That's what is very puzzling to me.

    Like I just said, Maybe the newer PSU circuitry is changing and things are becoming better and more efficient. But that's where I'm differing to Wolf and anyone else who understands this better than I. Thanks...

    Well, if you do some searching,see middle of this page:

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cas..._10.html#sect0


    I think you will find that the ST1500 is two 750 units crammed into one case. So yes, the Newer PSU is based on a different technology.

    I think you're confusing it with a PUC. The ST1500 is not made up of two separate units.
