Works like a charm.

eli, Amazon

  • Summary: Little loud at sometimes when I'm playing some high def video games. But other than that, works really well. I got it after my 850w antec died, tried to get something more closer to the wattage my computer needed. Works like a charm! I searched the internet and they don't stress enough, that when you build your computer-- GET A PS THAT HAS A LITTLE MORE THAN THE WATTAGE YOU NEED, NOT SOMETHING THAT IS OVERKILL.

Just plain good

Mark Norton, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't really know what to say honestly. It works very well, went in without a hitch, and the modular design helped keep the Mini-ITX case clean.

Modular on a Budget

Nathaniel Bannister, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I've used a BP550 in most of the builds I've put together for our office and am always reminded of how much less frustrating it is to cable a computer when you don't have an extra 4 feet of dead useless cable floating around in the case. A solid contender at any price the only complaint I have is that the GPU power cable is not modular as we don't use cards that need dedicated power leads.

Not for Heavy gaming

Duncan Kaplan "Duncan", Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: Hello, I chose 3 stars becuase although it works and i have used it for about a year, it is definitely not for gaming. For awhile I had to old NVIDIA Geforce 7600 GT and it worked smoothly! When I put in a Asus Radeon HD 6850, it will crash after an hour or so. The Power supply meets recommended requirements yes, but the power from the box is declining. I am currently in the market for another power supply so it may work on my graphics card and not crash.

Great item, great value for modular.

A. Dumitrescu, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an older failing BFG supply. Glad I am back with Antec. It works perfectly, it is quiet and delivers steady voltages across all lines. The only thing is I wish it had more options in the modular lines provided, perhaps one with both SATA and old school MOLEX on the same line. But it is a small detail that does not affect its so far rock solid performance and silence.

  • Summary: I bought Antec P280 computer case with Antec 550W power supply at the same time. Both are very good product. When the new PC is running, it is quiet. I highly recommend this product.

So great that I kept the replacement

Thomas Beaty, Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I needed a new PSU and opted for this one based on the reviews. When my computer still would not start, I sent in for a replacement, and got a second one to test with (I love Amazon's replacement policy). Eventually I realized the motherboard died as well. When testing with two of these power supplies, one of these caused the system to freeze much faster than the other. I do not know if this is common, but it seemed the juice from one was fairly greater than the other.
