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.

Good except for exhaust fan location

William N., Newegg

  • Summary: A power cord is an item of value. Sure you probably have a spare kicking around the house "somewhere" but that's not the point. When comparison shopping factor that into the price you are willing to pay for this power supply. Sure it is reasonably efficient but Bronze 80 is now a commodity item not a rarity. Wait until this is on sale and has a rebate too, then and only then, is it a good deal.
  • Pros: The fan is quiet. Smaller than most ATX power supplies. Plenty of connectors provided. Reliable (I have a 3 year old one working fine). Very stable voltages. 3 years warranty is decent at this price point.
  • Cons: It is cheesy not to provide a power cord with this product. It is a marketing gimmick and has nothing to do with conservation. Antec is just pocketing the price of a power cord every time they sell one of these. Fan is on the back not the top. So it does not work well on cases like the Fractal Design Node 304. That case expects the PSU fan to be on the top, and then you flip the unit upside down and it vents through holes in the bottom of the case. Cables on this one ...

It's a power supply and it provides power!

Ryan L., Newegg
25 July 2013
  • Pros: Has a 24 PIN connector, 8 pin, 1 6 PIN for GPU and enough SATA and molex connectors for a basic build. Everything is running and it's pretty quiet.
  • Cons: I'm a bit disappointed it didn't come with a power cable. This is a new build and now I have to run out and get one. It's a stupid scheme to try and "save energy"

  • 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

Meh, no cord

Nathan D., Newegg
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Nice box
  • Pros: Good quality. Comes with sturdy, reusable cord ties
  • Cons: No power cord, I would have gotten a different PSU if I hadn't failed to read the bottom of the page. I spent a while searching for the cord thinking that I had misplaced it when I facepalmed at the bottom of the product's details page. My fault though.

Replacement

Bruce C. Baxter, Amazon

  • 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.
