Can you explain me why this is a bad point ?
I mean, if I buy a 850watt PSU the lowest load i will apply to it will be at least 300 watt ....
I dont think people wil buy a 850 watt psu for a low power computer ....
Other units tend to do better there, so it is fair critisism imo. I do agree that these PSU's normally don't go in very low power systems, but still.
Nice review! I just ordered this from Ncix yesterday and have it in hand already today!
I managed to get this unit for $140 + tax & shipping (after rebate) and i don't know of anything else in this price range to be as "complete". I'm moving up from an OCZ 700w MXSP that hit it's peak after a recent CPU/RAM upgrade so i'm interested to see what the added capacity/efficiency will net me
I really gotta say that OCZ put some thought into the packaging/accesories on this one, it's nice to see a complete bundle with a "high end" PSU, this is my first such unit The pic's provided give an idea of what to expect but man once you receive it in hand you can really grasp the "completeness" of the package From what i can tell so far build quality seem's excellent, i have always had good experience's with OCZ product's and this PSU seem's to actually be of better than normal quality for them. Time will tell
I myself don't mind the lack of a MOV as i have my PC plugged into a Monster HTS5100/AVS2000 combo (HTPC user) and any PC user should have at least a minimal surge suppressor connected to their PC, even if the PC only cost $200 and the suppressor only $10. It's just "smart" computing IMO
Well i'm off to install and see how it perform's! Thank's again for the thorough review
Sister just bought this POS and it blew up. Sparks everywhere.
