Hi, "Rodney?"

Personally i would like a lot more of comparisons, and more reviews of the "bling bling" stuff.

Like this PSU VS the "High Current Pro" 1200W from Antec VS Corsair professional AX1200.

Not just PSU's but Fan's, RAM, Cooler's etc.

Really, because the 1500W model isn't showing on their website. Maybe the 1500W model isn't being released in North America.

Shocking. It's a shame that North America rarely gets PSUs in that wattage range. The only ones we have are the Silverstone Strider 1500W (which has less +12v current than the Enermax MAXREVO 1350W) and Ultra X4 1600W.

My point exactly. This model is for that region and not North America.

Nice review Rodney. Are you going to review the SeaSonic X-series ? :) I know they are "only" 560-850W but they could sure use some reputation !

Seasonic is excellent and I've reviewed their stuff in the past. I'll contact them.

It's the best of the best, but the price at more then 300 euro is also very expensive. 91% efficiency. Top review as always. I recently invested in a Antec HCP-1200 High Current Pro 1200W. Both are equals but the price is also a lot lower 247 euro.

Um, not even close. Enermax had to sacrifice quite a bit to get this efficiency, which is barely better than 80 Plus Gold. Ripple suppression is great, transient response is good, but voltage regulation is disappointing and overall performance is worse than the Corsair AX1200, much less the Antec HCP 1200. This Platimax is not worth the cost in my opinion. You can pick up the MAXREVO 1350W for less, which performs better and has more capacity. Moreover, the 1200W PSUs I mentioned earlier cost less.
