Summary: As usual with Antec reputation this PSU is doing its job so far and no issue with it. My Rig: Intel I5 4670K(O.C 4.2Ghz) Asus Z87I- Duluxe Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB Antec EA-550 Platinum 550 PSU Noctua NH-U12 S Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB Sapphire Sapphire Radeon R7 265 2GB GDDR5
Summary: I am using this power supply in a Media Center. It is quiet and efficient both things you want in a power supply. Platinum efficiency in a power supply not only means less spent on energy cost but less heat produced for the same amount of energy.
Summary: Arrived on time and was exactly what I expected. This was very easy to install, with absolutely no problems. I'm an over 60 Gramma who's semi DIY I did have one of those 'lightbulb' moments when I realized '550 watts... you better start shutting the computer down', so I'm learning new habits.
Summary: The Earthwatt line of Antec products are efficient and probably the only line of products with a 80Plus Platinum rating that are sold at a manageable price. It is more re-insuring that I'm actually getting most of the 550 Watts then other Power Supplies.
Pros: -Quite, cool running, -Nicely wrapped wires in black (+aesthetics), -Efficient
Quiet, great energy saving - perfect for my 24/7 media center!

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.
