Pros: Seems to be kicking along perfectly, I bought one as a unit for a rebuild with an old I-7 920 D0 I had laying around with a ASUS P6T V2 I scored that came in perfect shape for 130 bucks in a HAF 912, with an old EVGA GTX 260 216. Going to make it a high end HTPC for the bedroom 37 incher, had many things I had laying around putting to use.
Summary: Apparently not 80 PLUS GOLD, in my opinion at most Bronze, since the temperature (even under light load 60-100W) is similar comparing to the previous 80 Bronze I've replaced. I realize that this particular one can be defective, even in this case I'm not happy.
Excerpt: I had one of these in my PC a couple of years ago now before I replaced it with an OCZ StealthXStream 500W. I had a few problems with it at first as it literally became dead, wouldn't power my pc at all. The customer support provided by Antec was great I received a new power supply within 48 hours of telling them about the problem. The Antec is a little more expensive than most power supplies, I paid £79.99 for amazon two years ago and the price has held at around this.
A little more expensive than most 550w PSU but you know you're paying for quality

Excerpt: I've had one of these in my computer for two years now and despite my PC being on every day throughout most of the day and even sometimes at night I haven't had any problems with it. I received this as a replacement to a 430w Antec PSU, which was a replacement to a 380w Antec PSU - both 'blew up' - probably due to under wattage - but Antec's support was awesome enough to provide a better replacement both times! These PSUs are pricey but the support is excellent.
Summary: scadente non ha certificazioni alcune pagato 56 euro in un grande magazzino avra anche una garanzia ma la ventola mi ha dato dopo 5 mesi problemi si era scuscinettata quindi lo dovuta cambiare e la garanzia si e' invalidata dalla rimozione dei bollini dunque non va bene che dopo 6 mesi una ventola faccia cosi dunque prodotto scadente
