No, everyone who has purchased it or has had experience with the product and selective benchmarks.

Ehh, that isn't great. There are plenty of good reviews for crap PSUs because people simply don't understand PSUs.

There are plenty of good reviews for crap PSUs because people simply don't understand PSUs.

There are also some bad reveiws for good power supplies, becasue someone thought it would "increase the wattage output" by shoving a screw driver down the fan grille.

Yes, this is why I generally recommend disregarding newegg/amazon reviews for PSUs.

So what i listen to what you have to say? What makes your opinion any more valid than say the other guy preaching his opinion. Not trying to be rude but everyone has an opinion and the best approach is take everyones opinion/review/benchmark than base your decision off of that. Remember your just a guy on the internet like everyone else.

There is alot of common sense that goes into it. If someone says a Logisys is amazing and I explain with facts and evidence why it is crap, should our opinions be weighted equally? No.

Where do you get your facts and evidence?

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 41 months ago

Lots of places. Also, there are some well known facts that are generally true across the board about PSUs. For example, If a PSU has a max output rating and an average output rating but is labeled at the max wattage, not continuous, it is not a very good unit at all. This is just a common knowledge fact. There is alot of stuff like that.

If people based their PSU purchases off only newegg reviews, we would see WAY more terrible PSUs in use, and less quality units.

No one would every buy a high quality 750w unit when this is only $57 without rebates: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3912DA9118

But is it smart to buy this apevia? No. People use common sense and decide for themselves that it is not a good idea to buy it and then buy something better.
