    In the power supply realm, when consumers think of quiet and efficient power supplies one of the first companies that comes to mind is Seasonic and today we have our 11th look at a Seasonic branded unit. This review covers a new line for Seasonic, the G Series, with today’s model being the G-550 (SSR-550RM Active PFC F3).

During that more than 30 years as a company Seasonic has cultivated lines of power supplies that are today some of the standard bearers for efficiency and quiet computing. This focus, and its reputation for quality, has lead to an explosion in production as Seasonic can be found providing OEM services on various model lines for Antec, XFX, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, and of course under its own Seasonic brand...

    Added another link/review.

    Well, $100 is not that expensive for what you get, especially considering how much I paid mine

    JonnyGuru really liked the G series as well, also the Platinum Series got a near perfect score.
