Excerpt: PSU is an important part of a PC. Prices vary from reasonable to way too high. What you get in any package is really unknown, unless the manufacturer provides a multiple year warranty. Power fluctations wear heavily on the components and the quality of the components defines the reliability of the unit. Cannot rate such things as quality or reliability without at least a year of use. This PSU appears to be a good one.
Summary: NZXT Source 210 (bottom mounted PSU) and BIOSTAR H61MGC (4pin port on top, though that's standard) are the relevant parts. This computer was for my grandma, who lives on the other side of the country. We've propped it up with a small bowl for the time being. Hopefully it will stay like that until my dad goes back in August to visit and can install a 4pin extender.
Pros: The PSU is really a great deal, it's stable, and I don't expect needing a new one any time soon. Actually comes with 3 SATA cables, not just 1.
Excerpt: Used this for a failed PS in my 6 year old Dell Dimension E520. It didn't have all the output connectors I needed but was able to cut a connector off the old PS and splice it onto the new Antec PS. I needed 2 SATA drive connectors to run down to the bottom where the 2 internal hard drives are located. The Antec PS SATA connectors did not have the lengh to stretch that far.
Summary: Lasted me about 2 and an half years before I smelt something burning and discovered that that was the end of this PSU. Oh well, $35 (what I paid back then as well) for 2 1/2 years can't be too bad I guess, although I really hope it didn't take the rest of my PC with it... I was supposed to give this 2/5 but I didn't remember my order ID.
Summary: I'm shopping for a budget PSU and it seems the Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D is a better deal. This PSU is 350W, has one SATA connector, and is not 80+ certified. The EarthWatts 380 is 380W, has much more SATA connections, and it's 80+ certified. It only costs about $5 more. Just thought I'd point this out to people.
