While I definitely wasn't being serious with my comment, I never realized the manufacturers were down to this level of pathetic. It's amusing, actually.

Haha, they're even worse than that. Eg. Tagan's rep's opinion about some review of their PSU at [H].

Yeah, and running the site is free, so it's all pure profit.

Seriously, there have always been ebbs and flows to what people were sending out for review....but lately no one is sending anything it seems. And if they do it is only the absolute top product from their premium line.....if they are even responding to emails anymore.

They do the same in the Video Game business. Even though those reviews are purely opinion based.

Some companies won't send reviewers a game till after it's been on the market for a week or two. Or at all, because previous games from that developer or series have gotten bad reviews.

Which is why you see so many people complaining about game reviews and them being hogwash.

So then if you had a few thousand bucks in a test setup, you would have no problem in testing a PSU that someone else took apart, made some sort of repair?

Personally, I would need a little more proof than just a few posts saying "I refurbish PSUs", before I would.

It takes more than just a few bucks a month to run a site like this. I don't know why people seem to think these things happen for free.
