Pros: I don't know of any yet as I've had it only a few weeks and I'm not sure this replacement supply will survive either.
Cons: First one I purchased was Dead on Arrival (DOA). Actually it failed a week later. When I first turned it on I kept smelling a "burning" or "hot" smell. A week later it failed. I return it to New Egg and the replacement arrived a week ago. I still smell a "hot" odor, but it as not failed yet. I lo...
Summary: First unit I had to return after two weeks because it would randomly not allow bootup or the computer would randomly shut down due to the power supply. Now after one year the replacement unit's fan is starting to fail and making a loud rattling noise.
Pros: High power, lots of high quality connectors, quiet for one year.
Cons: Unreliable and problematic. Size is bigger than most.
Summary: The third, Antec-supplied replacement works perfectly, but it seems to actually be a slightly different model that is "semi-modular".
Pros: I had high expectations.
Cons: The first one didn't work - the computer re-booted occasionally and would not allow a complete installation of Windows without failure. The Newegg-supplied replacement was actually a bit worse with the same symptoms. (An older Seasonic power supply worked fine in the same computer.)
Summary: removing the sticker isn't too hard but it can be a tad dangerous...
Pros: The power supply works...
Cons: after a couple months I started hearing a ticking sound coming from the power supply, investigated to find the Antec sticker on the bottom of the fan was coming lose... had to use tweezers to remove the sticker
Summary: Unacceptable. Part of the purchase involved brand name recognition. Not sure that the replacement wont have this issue. It seems to be affecting multiple customers. My fan noise occured within the first week, but others have had ownership for months before hearing the fan click / rattle issue.
Pros: Relatively long cable lengths Partial Modularity Quiet Operation for two days
Cons: Clicking noise coming from PSU. It could be the bearings in the fan Mount; could be fan 'ticking' on an internal part... $12 to ship back to NewEgg / Loss of productivity
Summary: I would not have purchased this if I'd read through the reviews more thoroughly and realized how common the fan noise problems were, and I certainly didn't expect it to have so many cables hardwired. For what it costs, you should definitely pass on this one.
Pros: Powerful, stable, and solid.
Cons: Fans makes a loud, vibrating noise pretty much out of the box. I'm one of the few lucky enough to get that instead of the rattling noise. It has more cables than most computers need hardwired into it; it's modular only in the sense that you can add additional SATA, molex, or PCI-E connectors.
Cons: This is my second Antec Eartwatts 750. The first one had a clicking noise from the fan. So, I RMA's it and received a replacement from Newegg in good time. A couple of weeks ago, the clicking noise started on the new one. This time its so loud it sounds like the harddrive is working. It's out of ...
Summary: Sad to see a solid PSU gets ruined by small thing like fan. RMA went through quick. Great customer support. Waiting for it to be shipped back. Will see how it goes. P.S. I already invested $60 for another PSU to keep my PC going. Not happy about that.
Pros: Power up my crossfire build no problem. Sufficient PCI-E connectors.
Cons: Fan makes some clicking-like sound after using it for a while. Poking the fan with something will stop the noise but it keep coming back. Fan makes that kind of noise at a certain speed I guess. However, you can't control the fan speed of this PSU
