Last week, I came across an article online, criticizing the Western mainstream media as inciting a culture of "self-hate". The way I interpret it is the foundation of our fundamental values in a democratic society has slowly eroded from a system that holds impartial reporting in the highest regard, to an alliance of organizations trying to shape our minds into their perspective on a daily basis. I would say the Western mainstream media -- as well as education system -- as a whole likes to cherry pick pieces of data to convince the audience outside of what is perceived as the "majority" viewpoint, while ignoring the hugely overarching obvious, in order to demonstrate their mind blowing "insight", (false) humility, and/or political correctness. In a less controversial example, a few years ago, a person called Ragu in Toronto intentionally reversed his car into the guy behind him in a traffic jam in an attempt to scam for $500. Unfortunately for Ragu, the driver behind had a dashcam that recorded the whole incident, which was then uploaded to YouTube. Before long, internet users found out Ragu had a colorful history of similar practices, and his car had cut brake and reverse lights at the time of the staged collision. Needless to say, Ragu was charged by the police, thanks to the crystal clear evidence. However, the CBC actually tried to defend Ragu in this case, suggesting he was actually an innocent victim, because his car had a manual transmission. I could go on all day about this topic, but my point here is this: If APH Networks, as a media outlet, practiced the same thing, today I will try to convince you SilverStone makes terrible power supplies, because my mom's cousin's friend's coworker's son had one that was dead on arrival ten years ago. Similarly, generic $15 PSUs on eBay are amazing, because my neighbor's grandfather's sister's dog has one that did not blow up after three weeks. Now, I am not here to try to convince you to buy into my perspective. Since we hold facts in the highest regard over anecdotal evidence, today, we took apart SilverStone's new Strider Gold S ST75F-GS V2.0 750W to see if quality will, in the end, transcend perspective and tell its own story. First fact of the day: This is an uber short, 140mm fully modular power supply.
