Uhh, I'll take properly completed reviews over 99% of people's opinions on a product. Especially one such as a power supply. So should you.
Agree. The vast majority of users don't have the test equipment, facilities, skills or technical knowledge to conduct a proper review of a PSU (or any electronics).
.....opinions are like,,,, every body has one.
You omitted the most important part of that expression: "...and they all stink!" ;)

Yeah well there was a time when things were not so cut and dry or black and white.
I am a person that has a tendency to try something out and if it works well (or even better than expected) then I will continue to use said product.
No NOT to fault because I do like to try different products out from time to time mostly the ones that are not seen as the best.
That said never trust a book by it's cover and never take a review as gospel.
Sorry if you think that a review of a product is the end-all be-all of said product but I have learned this not to be so cut and dry.
JMHO.
Take care good luck on your search for the perfect PSU.

I think that is backwards and back in the day, things were black and white. As far as sticking to what we know and like, I think that is just normal human nature.

Ikenai borderline!
corsair units can get pricey but currently the RMx is competitive in price with seasonic.
corsair RMx w/ten year warranty $110 on amazon & newegg
seasonic GX650 w/ten year warranty $105 amazon / $115 newegg (w/ shipping)
Seasonic units here in the UK are stupidly expensive compared to just about any other manufacturer. It's basically Corsair or bust here.
