Seemed good while it lasted

Terry C., Newegg
17 August 2015

Quiet, great energy saving - perfect for my 24/7 media center!

Todd Maddison, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the best power supply I've owned for it's purpose. I have a media center PC, on 24/7 to record TV and serve as the house's audio and video distribution system. I've had this machine (in various forms) for over a decade so I'm pretty familiar with it's characteristics.
