    TT really need to pay more attention when they design units and pick OEMs for their premium PSUs. This just doesn't cut it, but I guess they expect people to buy this based on brand name. :/

    Wow, I was expecting so much more. :(

    Question on your testing, specifically for efficiency. I'm not sure if you state in your review if the testing was done on 220V(standard for EU), but I think for the US users we should understand that 120V is less efficient by nature.

    Do your reviews cover this 220/120V natural inefficiency? If not, I would strongly recommend including it in the review.



    Edit, oh and I'm really glad TPU has added you as a reviewer. I really like reading your work and think TPU's reviews are much better. :toast:

    Hey mlee49! On the efficiency and voltage regulation tables I have the avg AC input Volts during the tests. The difference in efficiency now is about 1-1.5% in favor of 230V. I initially chose to test with 230V since the 115V section is already covered by Wolf, Jonny and Paul. However I plan to make some new additions to my methodology in the near future :)

    ps. I am very glad too that I work for TPU :)
