BUY THIS POWER SUPPLY!

Michael B, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: I have purchased over 200 of these over the last 7 years. Not a SINGLE unit has died on me and some have been in use 24-7 for the entire time. When I want a go to power supply that works perfectly for a server or mission critical computer, this is the one I get. Yes you can pay more and get more wattage but these power supplies are ROCK SOLID. Could not possibly recommend this model more.

Almost 2 years, no problems yet!

  • Summary: This power supply has been running a low-power file server 24/7 for nearly two years. It is plugged into a non-pure-sine-wave UPS and has had no problems running off of the output during power outages. Needless to say, I'm very happy with it. Note that this unit only carries the bronze efficiency rating; nowadays, 80+ silver and gold power supplies are less expensive, so if your system will be always-on, it may be worth it to invest in a more efficient power supply.

Did the job!

  • Summary: It worked great! There are a ton of cables that I did not need, but better to have too many than too few. Power switch on back - never had one before, so I do not know whether it is a plus or not, but can't hurt. By the way, Dell wanted $150 for a 300 watt power supply. This one was less than $50 and is Bronze certified. Very satisfied.

Antec--get what you pay for: This unit is great!

MSL "msl", Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought a different PSU from another site and it was night and day when I compared it to Antec's packaging and construction. Each item was wrapped and wired for easy breakdown, the wires were stamped so the end user can ID the proper plugs (included a guide), solid-truly solid construction compared to "nickel" finish PSU's, the main power cable had an additional sheath for protection, SATA cables were in two separate sets which made it that much easier to install-plug in...

Took a chance, got burned.

Kyle, Amazon

  • Summary: I saw the good reviews for this unit as well as the bad reviews regarding noise/the high pitched coil whine, and figured any issues this PSU may have had would be fixed by now. I was wrong. Got everything plugged in and turned on, and holy crap it's a sharp noise. I mean maybe if it was in a cabinet hidden away 20ft it would be okay, but as it is the machine is sitting 10ft away on the ground next to my desk and it's annoying as @$#%!

One of my all-time favorite power supplies

A. Wiersch, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • Summary: DON'T SKIMP ON THE POWER SUPPLY! I'm a software developer and have built many systems. This is one of my all-time favorite power supplies. It's great for machines that don't need more power, which is most of them unless you have some high powered graphic cards in your system or other power hungry cards and devices. As for wattage, buying a power supply that is overrated from what your system needs can be wasteful and inefficient...

  • Summary: Fits perfect. Easy to install. Directions are there if you need it. Would definitely recommend for your desktop if you short out your power supply like I did.
