Today, we will take a look at one of the advanced power supplies that exist in the market and are intended for the market of ambitious computer users who are not willing to compromise on quality - even at a price that is not low at all.
When we knew that we would receive this power supplier and receive an opportunity to reveal it to you, it was clear to us that the part that pursues the perfection of your children will jump out of his chair. Saxon, a name that probably will not say much to those who do not sell with the computer market. There are those who will even think that this is a cheap Chinese imitation, heaven forbid, that produces suicidal suicidal power supplies. The power supply manufacturer has risen in recent years from the guns to the front of the stage, and has done so with very little publicity. The publication of Seasony is word of mouth, from one person to another.
What makes the same company a name is a rare combination of high power quality and stability, fairly quiet fans and a price that is hard to compete with. This company not only sells power supplies of its products but also supplies units to other hardware manufacturers who receive different packaging and branding. When it comes to quality, even the big manufacturers know - Seasonic is emerging as the world's leading manufacturer of power supplies.
Seasonic does not only have simple and cheap power supplies and recently the company also unveiled the prestigious side, and when you combine luxury with uncompromising quality - an X series is created. In this review we present you the X860 power supply with 860 watts. For those who wonder why the company gave such a strange power statement, the reason is that this series of power supplies actually continues a series that was launched last year where the extension was 50. Therefore, to emphasize that this is a new and more advanced series, the company added ten more watts to power. Enough, this is the time to meet the nail of the occasion:
So, after we've seen what Seasonon's new flagship product is, let's mention some key features of the product:
Survivor of 80Plus Platinum - This standard ensures that when loading 20, 50 or 100 percent of the declared power, the power efficiency will be at least 91 percent. What it means? The efficiency of the power supply is the force coming out of it parts of the force entering it. The rest of the power is converted to heat. The higher the efficiency, the less power the actual power supply consumes from the wall outlet.
Hybrid fan mode - When the Hybrid switch is turned on (the switch on the back of the power supply), the fan enters a state where it does not operate at all (!) Up to a power that is about 30 percent of the total power declared on the power supply. Only when the load is larger does the fan gradually enter activity. In this case it is about 250 watts and with modern hardware today displaying impressive power consumption data at rest, it is likely that the fan will be in off mode for most of the operating hours.
7 years warranty - Seasonic backs this product with no less than seven years warranty. When three years is standard, and five years is standard for high-quality power supplies, a seven-year warranty will make sure that even in the very distant future your power supply is insured.
After a short use of the power supply we did notice that it is incredibly quiet and does its duty to it. It is obvious that this power supply presents good electricity quality data, which is slowly losing its importance as the market fills up with quality power supplies which will all give a similar usage experience. It is important for us to note that this power supply came to us directly from the manufacturer and was not wrapped in cling film. It is quite possible that importers in the country also receive these power supplies without sealed nylon on the outer packaging, so check and ask before wondering if the power supply was used or tested during import and on the way to the consumer.
The pampering called Saxon X860 Platinum will cost you a thousand shekels and even more (!). With all due respect to the advanced features, the exemplary quiet, the full modularity and the high efficiency, it is possible that thousands of shekels are just an exaggerated investment to supply power at 860 watts. The power of 750 to 850 watts can also be found in the price tag of 650-750. This is a material jewel reserved for performance hunters who do not need monstrous powers.
