In lieu of this i am not going to type out all the tests i think should have been done to really determine the outcome of this but i think it is prudent of Maximum PC to atleast add OCZ in this reveiw as being deserving of a 9 kick ass as this truely is a piece of hardware that deserves it!\
You're new here, so I'm going to go easy on you. But, so you know, I take implications that Maximum PC is on the take from vendors very badly. Imagine how pissed Sam Jackson would be if you told him that you met his mom as part of her freelance prostitution racket. That's about how I feel now.
If you still think we're in some power supply vendor's pocket, I point you to the final page of the issue with the power supply story. Turn back to the story and look at page 54. If we were in vendor's pockets, I don't think we would have given a score of FOUR to the power supply that is advertised on the back cover of the magazine. To reiterate, the product that is advertised on the back cover of the mag (one of the high dollar ad spots btw) received THE SECOND LOWEST SCORE IN THE ROUNDUP!
I think that if we were in these company's pockets, we probably wouldn't have done that, would we?
You have yet to give more than one compelling reason that the OCZ power supply deserves a higher score than it received. All I've hear right now is "I bought an expensive OCZ power supply, and I like it a lot, so it deserves a higher score, despite the fact that I haven't done any kind of testing on it at all."
For the record, Maximum PC isn't here to make you feel better about your hardware purchases. We're here to tell you about the best hardware we've tested. If you have a problem with our testing procedure, we love to enter into constructive conversations about it. Describe your problem clearly, and I'll talk to you about it all day, and may even change the testing procedure. If you're just going to troll, you will be banned from the se boards.
