    80 plus Titanium? Thought they would stop at Platinum. What next, diamond?

    If anyone cares to explain the reasoning behind this series? I just bought a Prime Ultra Tit 850w and i can't even hear it,and i don't keep it in hybrid mode. You'd probably have to try and sleep with your face next to it to make any sense. Or maybe the main purpose of the series is that its a different colour? o_O

    One of CPU/PCIe connectors is missing wall between plug-holes. (one most on the right)
    Not affecting functionality, but I would feel really bad if my unit came in such state.

    Terrible. So many complaints about dead units. My 750w seasonic (XFX) going on 6 years now. Knocking on wood.

    Snow Silent =/= Prime Snow Silent.

    Not even the same product line.

    https://seasonic.com/snow-silent-xp3-xp2s
    https://seasonic.com/prime-snow-silent

    the more recent XP3 units (digital mind you) that the snow silents were based on had power on issues that were since fixed.

    are those reviews reliable ? also like in amazon
    arent those reviews are posted from users that get bad-unit ?

    now if you, are you posting reviews after like 1~3years using PSU without any issue ?
    i bet people that dont get any issue didnt post reviews... most just long forget or wouldnt even care about posting reviews
    and a positive/good review for like a week experience isnt reliable either

    newegg has a Verified Owner (purchaser) under the reviewers name(if you bought it from them)...helps to weed out fake reviews.

    doest matter imo, even verified owner (filtered from fake reviews) it still didnt reliable, at least for me personally
    what i mean is that most review coming from buyer that receving bad-unit
    and buyer that didnt have any issue probably didnt post any review

    if neweggs telling how many units sold, then we can compare with reviews so maybe we can get idea how much bad-unit from all sales, say 3 bad-review from 10sales is already bad... but without such info those review are useless for me personally

    rather than those bad-reviews, reviews sites (such as jonnyguru) saying its great...and many people been saying/recommending seasonic for psu either, so there some good reputation

    also this snow-silent model isnt new.... its already released since 3years ago, what new is only smaller-wattage model.... so i wonder why many got bad-units on neweggs, as the model should already polished up by now
