Benchmark Reviews
14 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Presently, the 500W Antec EarthWatts EA-500 is available for $94.99 at NewEgg.com . This price seems too high for this level of power supply, and is more expensive than competitor offerings which have the same 80 PLUS efficiency rating.
  • Pros: 80 PLUS Certified efficiency, Excellent performance, Active PFC, Fully sleeved main power connector, Very high efficiency rating: PFC = 0.99, Extremely quiet operation, Excellent power regulation, Industrial grade components
  • Cons: Plain design and dull finish detract from the allure of efficiency, Peripheral cables should also be sleeved to match, 120mm cooling fan should be standard equipment
