Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Power Supply Review

Postby Apoptosis » Mon Oct 28, 2013 6:23 am

Be Quiet! is an European company which, despite the strange name, is a very well-known manufacturer amongst enthusiasts, mostly for their high quality (and notoriously expensive) power supply units. We had an encounter with their very impressive Dark Power Pro 10 series a few months ago; however, impressive as it was, the price tag of such a power supply would certainly drive the vast majority of users away. Today we will be having a look at the least expensive PSU series currently offers, the Pure Power L8.

LOL at the 5 zip ties. I can use 5 zip ties on one cable. I guess this isn't as bad as case manufacturers though that give you 4-5 for wiring an entire case.
Legit Bottom Line: The Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700 W certainly is a very good product, well made and offering excellent performance. If the retail price however is not on par with other similar products at the time of its release, the newcomer into the US market will be facing impossible odds against competition.

Is this a Be Quiet! issue or an "in general" conclusion?

My guess is that it's an "in general" statement.

If the Be Quiet! power supply was $15+ more than a Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, Thermaltake, etc. Which would you go with? Most would go with a more well known company if it was cheaper, rather than taking a chance on a new unproven company...

Just my guess anyways :)
