Not impressed - years later still not

Christopher B., Newegg
2 December 2015
  • Summary: Should have RMA'd it years ago. I've bought Antec units before in the past and never experienced issues. None were of the earthwatts class.
  • Pros: Lots of cables and connectors.
  • Cons: When I first purchased this psu years ago from newegg, maybe in 2009, I never found it to be stable and had issues with random shutdowns. I eventually gave up on it but never issued an RMA and instead bought a Seasonic unit of similar specs locally and all the random power issues went away and ne...

Lasts under 4 years...

JEREMY B., Newegg
23 May 2015
  • Pros: It works great like it says until it doesn't!
  • Cons: It went bad 8 months after warranty. "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly." 99% this error is because of the PSU, so I'm getting a new one.

Update-Happy with RMA process

Scott R., Newegg
17 January 2012
  • Summary: Pros: High power, lots of high quality connectors, quiet for one year. Cons: Unreliable and problematic. Size is bigger than most. Other Thoughts: 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.
  • Pros: Had to RMA due to impending fan failure. Antec did a great job and I had a replacement in about 10 days. Hope the new one lasts longer than the last.
  • Cons: See below.

Rebate Program

Emmanuel H., Newegg
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I really don't like the idea of REBATE. I skip buying anything offerred a rebate: time consumming and wates a lot of administration. Why simply saying no return and cut the price???
  • Pros: I love products from Antec, especially itmes on promotion / sale
  • Cons: I hate rebate program

User Review

William F., Newegg
4 September 2011
  • Summary: I may return this because its not something that I am 100% pleased with. System I built this into: Asus P8P67 PRO (Rev 3.1) Intel Core i5-Quad 2.8 (Turbo to 3.1) Asus GeForce GTX 550 Ti 16 Gig of G.Skill Ripjaw 1600 Mhz PC3 12800
  • Pros: I have no problems for what this is supposed to do. Almost no heat coming off this thing, very quite for the most part. I did not have any problem with any voltages from my unit. It's black. It does have some modular cables.
  • Cons: Only 1 time did I hear the fabled clicking that some others have posted about, it then stopped on its own. Not 100% modular, it only allows about 3 cables for the modular part. I took off 2 eggs because I thought it would be a little more modular, and because the cables are not long enough to be ...

Complete with dents!

Christopher B., Newegg
8 July 2011
  • Summary: Aesthetics are important to me, but through my anticipation to get my computer built I put a mounting screw halfway into the screw hole in the center of the dent and used a small pair of pliers on it to straighten the back plate up enough to mount the psu. We'll see if it starts clicking...
  • Pros: Fast delivery.
  • Cons: This thing had a dent and paint chips on the back panel right out of the box. It was packaged nicely, and I had no problems with the box Newegg sent, so I think it came from the factory like this. Top left portion of back panel was where the dent was.

Good budget PSU, watch out for fan.

Dan H., Newegg
23 April 2011
  • Pros: Great price through combo/daily deals. Semi-modular design allows less cable clutter if you only use few components. Netting around wires looks cool.
  • Cons: Fan started clicking after 7 months usage. I went nuts trying to figure out which one it was, before I slapped my head and tried the psu. Sounds like a bearing starting to go. The primary mainboard could be another 2 inches longer. For those who have to route cables behind the mobo plate, you kno...

Good Power Supply

Joshua B., Newegg
29 January 2011
  • Summary: Others have posted that although a product may arrive broken it shouldn't be knocked down two eggs. Considering that the rating does not reflect Newegg (who have been excellent as always!
  • Pros: This power supply runs well and the cords are easy to manage. It provides those cords which you will need and any extra are easily added due to it being modular. Also, its very quiet.
  • Cons: The first one I received was DOA which is why I knocked off two eggs.
