Page 5 - Scoring

Performance (40% of the final score) - this is going to be easy. I gave a perfect score to the Kingwin here, and I see no real reason to withhold it from the Superflower cousin. Once again, the unit did better in the hot box, and it was already amazing during the cold tests. I'm going to reward that, folks. 10.

Functionality (20% of the final score) - there's really nothing different here than we saw with the Kingwin, either. We do have an extra PCI-E cable we may need to hide again. As a result, I'll go with another 9.5.

Value (30% of the final score) - Superflower states that their retail price on this unit is $159.99, even though they have no retail presence in the US. I guess there is a benefit to getting things right from the OEM, because that's ten bucks less than the Lazer's MSRP. As a result, I'll go with an 8 this time.

Aesthetics (10% of the final score) - looks like the Kingwin, only with a better looking sticker. 8.5.

Summary

Folks, Superflower is clearly looking to take over the universe. For some time now, I've been seeing unit after unit from them that did nothing but impress. This platform is the real deal. I can't say enough good about it. Go, go, go. Buy, buy, buy.

The Good:

  • outstanding efficiency
  • excellent ripple suppression
  • has fanless mode
  • flat modular cables are easy to route in a case
  • excellent voltage stability

The Bad:

  • can't get a retail Superflower in North America

The Mediocre:

  • I ran out of Platinum review samples... for now
