Affordable Gold from Seasonic: G-360 and G-550 Power Supply Units Review
16 January 2013
Summary: So far we have only come across Seasonic power supply units certified according to the highest standards in the upper price segment. However, the new G series units with 80 PLUS Gold certification belong to a much more affordable mainstream range.
Pros: Comparable to their more advanced X series counterparts in voltage stability and efficiency, Low output voltage ripple, Very quiet at low and medium loads, Good selection of cables and connectors, Adequate load capacity of each power rail, Low price (for an 80 PLUS Gold product)
Cons: Noisy fan at high loads, Rather short CPU power cable
Summary: The Seasonic G360 power supply brings much of the X-series benefits to a lower power and price range without significant sacrifices. Its electrical performance and build quality are excellent, and the 5-year warranty dispells doubts that component quality might have been sacrificed to achieve the low price point.
Summary: The Seasonic G-360 power supply is targeted to the savvy user who wants a low-wattage, high-quality unit. It provides excellent voltage regulation, low noise and ripple levels, and superb efficiency. The cable configuration is perfect for the labeled wattage.
The only problem is convincing the average user that 360 W is more than enough for most entry-level and mainstream PCs… Unfortunately, people tend to think that more wattage is better, which is not the case.
Conclusion: A fonte de alimentação Seasonic G-360 é direcionada ao usuário informado que deseja uma fonte de baixa potência e alta qualidade. Ela oferece uma regulação de tensão excelente, baixos níveis de oscilação e ruído, e eficiência fenomenal. A configuração dos cabos é perfeita para uma fonte de 360 W.
