Default Before reading these reviews- read this article! (or skim it;-)

Why 99% of PSU reviews are wrong" (actually, it's more like 80% nowadays)

"The methodology most used to review power supplies is just adding a multimeter on the power supply outputs and measuring if there are any fluctuations on the voltages found there. Some websites even compare the voltages found with voltage levels found on competing products. The problem is, this procedure is wrong and tells us nothing about the power supply.
The most common problem with power supplies is their incapability of delivering their labeled current (and thus power). Measuring the output voltages will tell us nothing about this.
Reviewers that do reviews like this probably think that at least they can see if there is any fluctuation on the power supply outputs, however in reality they simply won’t be able to measure this."

More from Hardware Secrets

Be sure to check out HC's own PSU reviews by SKYMTL, who knows the internal components well and takes the time to carefully investigate them. His reviews are thorough and provide measurements of voltage regulation under varying loads, ripple testing, and efficiency.
