If this trend continues, we'll have to place Aris in a close orbit around the nearest black hole, so as to provide him with 48 hour days (as apparent to us)...

I think when OklahomaWolf retires, getting Aris to write for JonnyGURU.com would be the best thing to happen to PSU reviews since his partnership with Tom's. Lots of people still check only JG.com and no other sites.

On the other hand, someone may suggest such homogenization of PSU reviewers wouldn't be a good thing, but damn me if all that equipment can't be relied on.

True, most still believe that the best reviews come from this site. But that was till ~9 years ago true.

Yes Aris his reviews are much better then anyone else, which is both great and bad. It's of course good to have such a great reviewer with great equipment, but manufacturers are gonna optimize their power supplies for Aris his reviews and could even neglect real life optimization.

I believe that's what Seasonic did with their Focus series. They optimised the power supply for great performance in reviews, but forget to test the power supplies with graphics cards. And therefore we now got a power supply which got a lot of recommendations, but has problems with many power hungry and some less power hungry graphics cards.

There's also of the issue of what happens when Aris retires? You are then left with no reviewers at all...
