Overall, I would say the E850 is an excellent unit that still has a few rough edges. Performance was great as far as I’m concerned, and considering that Seasonic is the OEM, I have no reason to worry there. The total design is really good, but there were a couple minor aesthetic changes I would like to see, primarily with the cables. CAM is in much of the same boat. The program looks great and offers a plethora of monitoring options, but a couple of added features would really complete the package.
However, the digital monitoring in the E series really sets NZXT apart. In my opinion, it’s a completely revolutionary addition to PSUs. Even if reviewers are likely to get the most use out of it, that alone is incredibly helpful for up and coming content creators who have small budgets. On the other hand, anyone who wants to monitor power consumption has that option now. At $150, the E850 costs a good 50 bucks more than comparable units, but the digital monitor feels like it justifies the extra cost. Awesome job NZXT!
