Seasonic makes some decent ones that I actually like better than this model for about the same cost

  • Summary: Overall solid power supply and I have built several PCs over the years and never had an Antec green fail me. It is an active PFC type of power supply so it will require a pure sine wave type of 'smart' battery backup should you choose to use a battery to protect against power outages. No power chord is included with this product so they want you to recycle your old chord. I don't believe mine included screws to mount the PSU either.

The product DOA but the seller gets an A+

  • Summary: This product was dead on arrival, not atypical with things like this. But I must say that Fusion made up for the disappointment. Your heart skips a beat when a product malfunctions on arrival mainly because you anticipate problems returning it. No such problem with Fusion. I don't know whether it is a response to Amazon's demand for good customer service from third party vendors or that Fusion is just COOL.

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.

  • Summary: Needed to replace a dead PSU. This was on sale and it works very well. Fan runs smoothly and it generates very little heat under load. Basic and sufficient.
  • Pros: Trusted manufacturer
  • Cons: I guess if you want modular, you will have to pay a bit more

Replacement

  • Summary: My Antec case came with one of these. It lasted maybe 4 years before taking it on the chin in a power failure. I reordered the same because it was energy-efficient and fanless. Working great.

It Did the Job

  • Summary: This works fine, but is a bit louder than my old (2004) power supply. The noise is not a deal-breaker but fairly loud "white noise.

Quiet, efficient

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: The PSU doesn't make a lot of noise and is very efficient. This is part of an HTPC so the quiet factor and the efficiency were most important. The case this is in is a tight fit but even so, the cables don't get in the way, everything managed to be routed just fine.

  • Summary: I am using this in my media file server. It fits in my mini-ITX case, but the cables are a bit long to my liking. But other than that, it works very well, very quiet fan and I have no real complaints about it. Using it to power 4xWD 2TB Greens, a 2.5" WD Black, and CPU/Mobo/Ram.
  • Pros: Quiet, efficient, price
  • Cons: Long cables

Great power supply

D. Gulbransen, Amazon
13 August 2012
  • Summary: I would give it 5 stars, but the fan isn't terribly quiet. Don't get me wrong, it's way better than most power supplies I have experience with, but I'm using it for an HTPC. Some day I'll upgrade to a fanless option, but this is a fantastic entry-level power supply. I fully recommend it.
