Since spcr has never published the neo 550w review planned in the upcoming reviews list, I'm assuming there are still some problems.
Products seem to drop out of the upcoming reviews list with no explanation, but the neo 550w is still there. Enermax must have missed out on the backroom deal to withdraw the latest noisetaker review.
Hmm ... I sense dissatisfaction and veiled accusations of bias... Well, fair enough. You're welcome to make what you will of MikeC's affiliation with Antec.
However, I do need to clarify a couple of things.
As far as I can tell the new NeoHE revisions work great ... but that's not saying much since I thought the originals worked great. The reason that the review hasn't appeared has more to do with a lack of interest than any problems we've discovered. The NeoHE is old news ... and it's really not worth spilling more electonic ink that will promote a product that may or not have compatibility problems depending on when it was made. If/when there is a way to distinguish the new versions from the old is when the review deserves to happen.
On top of that, the issues of reliability and compatibility are nearly impossible to test in our usual fashion. I can't imagine how our review could prove decisively one way or the other that the problem is fixed or not fixed. I think the fact that the deluge of complaints about the NeoHE has slowed significantly says more about the new versions than our review ever could.
Second, products get dropped from our review queue for all kinds of reasons, including lack of interest, lack of time, or lack of relevance. However, the number one reason that they get dropped is because they are immediately and obviously too loud to consider in a quiet system. This was not true of the Enermax Noisemaker (despite its poor review), and it is not true of the NeoHE 550.
@George: Your boycott was quite short-lived... I hope you like your new P180. Sorry to hear about your non-functional NeoHE, and hope you've cooled off after reading through 18 frustrating pages of hype and complaints...
