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: 1. The 4+4 Pin Connector is SHORT as noted here by other reviewers, this would not be a problem if your PSU was top mounted as it doesn't have far to travel. However if you have a bottom mounted PSU get ready to get creative with your cabling.
Pros: * A Trusted Brand
Cons: I only had 2 issues with this power supply, one of which was serious enough to knock off an egg:
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: That's my only con but it is a big one (enough for a 1-egg ding). All the extra lines can obstruct airflow and impact expandability by being in the way forcing you to deal with them...especially if you have a top-mount for your PS in your case. I have a bottom mount and stowed them inside the lower HDD cage.
Pros: It's a 80-Platinum rating!
Cons: Literally, ALL the plug-ins...and if you don't need the lines, you still have to stow them away if you want a nice clean look.
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
Summary: I wanted an extremely efficient power-supply that would provide enough juice for a single high-powered video card. As I didnt have the card yet still using on-board graphics, I wanted power efficiency until that time. This fit the bill perfect! It is standard ATX size, not extra long like some supplies. The fan is a large 120mm, and is very quiet. You have to put your ear right up to it to even recognize that it is on!
Pros: Great value quiet fan 80 plus bronze certified
Summary: Bought this onsale for 39.99 and have no complaints. Seems like a good solid build with good features. Cables are nice and long, 2 PCIe 8pin connectors for the latest video cards. Everything you could need when on a budget.
