Summary: I've had this power supply for just a week under 3 years, when it suddenly quit on me. And by quit I mean made three loud bangs accompanied by bright flashes of light and a burning smell. Luckily it was just the power supply that went. Nothing like a computer-imploding moment like that to make me realize I need to back up my photos and files! I guess it was (un)fortunate that it happened right before the warranty expired.
Pros: No problems...until it died. Antec had excellent warranty replacement!
Summary: The first Antec EA-650 Platinum 650 PSU that arrived went "bang!" and produced smoke on initial power on. Amazon's amazing supply chain and return policy meant I was up and running with a replacement PSU within 36 hours - that's impressive. The PSU is of high quality construction; comes with ample connectors for a modern motherboard and peripherals and includes all screws, velcro fastenings etc that you could need.
Summary: Pros: Rock solid PSU. Energy efficient. Quiet fan. Cons: No detachable cables. Nothing outstanding about it. It's a PSU. Doesn't seem to burn power unnecessarily according to my inline meter. Runs cool and is a little quieter than I expected. I would have preferred detachable cabling to limit unused cables. If you are looking for an energy efficient, high performance PSU, this is a solid choice.
Summary: It powers my budget gaming system well. It has enough cable options. The length of cables is fine for an ATX motherboard. It is hard to see from the pictures, but the fan grid bumps out of the PSU case. It wasn't too bad with my case, the air filter is pushed down due to the height difference. (Bottom mounted PSU with air filters underneath the case.
Summary: Overall,I've tested this little delicated thing for a month, nothing wrong with it.It runs smoothly and quietly.I'm glad to buy it at a special price. Will definitely purchase this brand if necessary.
Pros: 1.This PSU is quite nice either on the performance or noise-reduction level., 2.The 650 watts is definitely enough for you to supply every part of your component.
Cons: 1.It doesn't come with the power cord that makes a little bit inconvenience for ppl who don't have it., 2.the price for this psu is a little bit higher at this range
