Summary: I have owned 2 of these in a 10 year span, and only had to buy a second psu because I sold my PC with the first antec. The 1st one is 7 years old now and I still haven't gotten a call to replace it. The second one is a year old and of course runs perfectly fine. If you build workstation PCs for businesses buy these in bulk the DOA rate is literally 1 out of 100 and that's even pushing it.
Pros: -80mm rear exhaust fan which keeps airflow in mind for top mounted psu cases
Cons: -No mesh sheeths to cover the psu cables (at this point I'm nitpicking)
Summary: This PS was recommended by Dell as an upgrade for my computer. It is working very smooth. Power is very consistante. If you are looking to upgrade your Inspiron, this is a very important and accurate upgrade.
Summary: I purchased my first Antec BP430 power supply back in 2010 for my son's Core i5 750 build; it was the older ATX12V v2.2 version not yet 80 PLUS certified. Earlier this year he received another ATI Radeon HD5770 video card from his older sibling and decided to put it in a CrossFireX setup on his MSI H55-G43 motherboard with the HD5770 that he already had.
Pros: - Shorter cables; easier to manage in an ATX mid-tower case
Cons: - The older ATX12V v2.2 BP430 without 80 PLUS certification that I received had "Ltec" brand capacitors in it; not the best quality brand of electrolytic capacitors but they haven't visibly failed yet and the PSU still runs strong
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my other Antec power supply that's fan started making too much noise for me to handle. This one is quiet and it fit neatly into the space provided in my Antec tower. The only problem I ran into with it is that it has less power connectors than my old one. For example, in my pc I still had a 3.5" floppy drive (I know...old) and my video card. They both use the same size power connector.
Summary: Upgraded to a 700w today to be sure the 460gtx 1gb would run, was surprised when I saw what was in it and figured i should write a review.
Pros: Just thought I might post what this has managed to power for over a year now. Its been running 24/7 as it is my media center, and powering a phenom ii 940 at 3.1 ghz, 2x2gb and 2x1gb sticks pc8500, an 8800gt, tv tuner, bluetooth and 802.11 cards, a wd 500gb green drive, and tons of wireless usb devices and its still fairly quite.
