Summary: So far it has been running very quietly, even when playing games. Using a gtx 750 ti which is low power however. Can't comment on the sound or performance under demanding conditions. Since it's only 350w, I would probably need to replace this if I wanted to upgrade. Perfectly fine for a simple or low-power build.
Summary: The first one I got was DOA... the very first DOA i've ever had from Newegg (and i've been with them since 2002). The replacement process was easy and it came fast and worked. It has been in a Dell Optiplex 755 for almost a year now and still works great. Don't really have much to say about it because I just stuck it the machine and gave it to the user. Didn't really see any problems or annoyances with it.
Pros: - Does its job.
Cons: - First one was DOA.... must of been a fluke. The replacement has been working fine for almost a year now.
Excerpt: Product was installed by Staples as a solution to an ongoing power/shutdown problem. It worked well for a few weeks and then the shutoff problem occurred twice. I am still keeping the product because the problem occurence is less frequest than before.
Excerpt: Service rep was really nice and was able to repair PC. However I had to wait close to an hour before being seen. I live forty miles one way from the nearest Staples store so I had no choice but to wait. I hope everyone doesn't find themselves waiting this long. Other than the long wait was very pleased with the service.
Summary: I do computer repairs in my free time and I bought this Antec BP350 to replace a dead power supply in a client's computer. The client didn't want to spend too much money, but I didn't want to give junk either. This PSU is cheap, but has decent quality and reliability. It delivers it rated power, won't risk damaging your components and deliver stable power. For a mainstream computer without a GPU or with a low-end one, this is a very good buy.
Pros: - Dirt cheap, - Rated for continuous power, unlike most PSUs at this price range, - Manufactured by FSP, a reputable PSU manufacturer, - Feels decent quality, has a decent weight to it, - Includes mounting screws, including a spare one, - 23A total on +12V rail, adequate for a 350W PSU, - 3 SATA connectors (NOT 1), - One SATA connector is on a separate cable, - Quiet, - Eco-friendly packaging - Always nice to see
Cons: - Designed for top-mounted PSU; cables are short and will cause problems with bottom-mounted PSU, - ATX 2.01 standard, which is a bit old by now, - No active PCF and low efficiency, - 80mm fan, which is usually noisier than 120mm fan, - No cable sleeving (expected for the low price), - Some wires are rather thin, but all the wires that actually carry power are thicker, - 1 year warranty according to the box - Antec's website says 2 years...
