Our first review of the SilverStone ST75F-GS was certainly one of mixed feelings. On one hand, the unit had decent features and performance, but on the other, it had a crappy warranty and the build quality wasn't all that great due to the capacitors on the secondary side of the unit. These factors combined with the price of an entry level unit left us with neither a recommendation for or against the unit.
The new ST75F-GS V2 does lack some output that the original unit did, but it is very minor and those in need of that extra bit of power are likely going to be searching for a higher-end unit anyway. Almost everything else for this unit is a step up from the original and that is just what we were hoping for. More passive cooling. Simpler cabling. Better performance. That's the name of the game when it comes to superseding previous models and on that note the ST75F-GS succeeds.
The only thing that we'd like to see change is a slightly lower price point or longer warranty. With others handing out seven and ten year warranties like candy, there's no reason a unit like this shouldn't bear a five-year warranty to nudge it along a little bit.

The Bottom Line: SilverStone's ST75F-GS V2 is a nice step beyond the original unit and certainly makes it more compelling. It could still use a better warranty or slightly lower price point to entice buyers a little extra.
