Product malfunctioned after 20 months

Christopher P., Newegg
28 May 2015
  • Summary: I loved Antec products and I was proud to own one but a PSU short could potentially have damaged anything and everything in my computer. I expected better quality from Antec and will most certainly not be buying a PSU from them again.
  • Pros: Looks very polished and thoughtfully designed. Labels, warnings, and an adapter for everything on a nice looking case.
  • Cons: PSU was under very little stress and died after one year and eight months of use.

volt X amps = watts not on this

Anonymous, Newegg
29 January 2015
  • Summary: as per the description each 12 volt rail is to have 30 amps. based on the numbers each only has 12 amps. what a rip off.
  • Pros: none, not as described on this web site not on the box.
  • Cons: as per this page and the Antec page. rail 12v1 is 30 amps, rail 12v2 is 30 amps, rail 12v3 is 30 amps, and rail 12v4 is listed as 30 amps. when i get the unopened box it stated that the 12v set is only 576 watts. or and doing the math watts divided by volts or amps is 576/12 for a total for all 4...

Complete garbage

Chad R., Newegg
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Shutdown my computer one day and the next day it wouldn't power up. The Power supply had somehow died over night. And it wasn't from surge, because I have a surge protector on it.
  • Pros: Antec usually makes a good product. Nice case and cable managment.
  • Cons: Died after 5 months of use.

  • Summary: I expected much better of Antec,
  • Pros: - Antec (I thought) - Platinum cert
  • Cons: - Not stressed at all, yet died after very little runtime (8 months calendar time) - Cables a little short for high-end supply - Unpleasantly stiff sheathing (why?)

Not What They Used To Be

James F., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Summary: NewEgg Rocks, but I can't say the same of Antec. Powersupply died just past the 60 day return limit for NewEgg. I bought this on sale, but after paying return shipping to Antec have now spent more than the full price, and Antec only replaces with refurbished units, so I paid full price for someone...
  • Pros: Nice Box, Contained Mounting screws
  • Cons: Died after two months!
