Intermittently no power

Bryan T., Newegg
9 February 2015
  • Summary: I would buy from Antec again, but after reading some of the horror story comments about this particular model catching on fire and nearly burning down buildings, I may abstain! I am working on getting them to replace this with a new one, possibly a different model.
  • Pros: Seems to run low and quiet (when it runs!)
  • Cons: I bought this back in June 2014 and didn't have time to deal with it until recently -- intermittent power issues. Out of box I had trouble with it coming on at all, and it first blamed by case. Tested with a known good supply and it was not the fault of the case (also Antec). It will not stay on ...

Please, do not buy this power supply; for your own safety!

Fernando L., Newegg
5 July 2014
  • Summary: Also if you're wondering, my rig is well ventilated. I'm narcissistic about keeping it clean and cool, as well as making sure there's nothing around that could potentially damage it. I've read some of the reviews below and it seems this has happened to quite a few people.
  • Pros: For the two years it lasted I encountered no problems; it powered my machine wonderfully. -SEE CONS/OTHER THOUGHTS-
  • Cons: After getting out of the shower and making some lunch I headed to my room to see my rig blowing out smoke as well as emitting a strong electrical smell. I rushed to shut off the power supply and unhook my surge protector. THANK GOODNESS I caught everything in time, as none of my components were d...

FIRE HAZARD

Raven B., Newegg
5 June 2014
  • Summary: I am incredibly annoyed. I bought this PSU along with all the other parts in my tower at the same time from Lu Computers so they could put it together for me. I am livid, and lucky that when massive amounts of smoke came billowing out of my machine I was not only awake and at home by right by the...
  • Pros: Well, it ran fine for 18 months.
  • Cons: Catches on fire.

Worked great, then started smoking

Jennifer C., Newegg
24 April 2014
  • Pros: It worked for year, and never had issues during that time. I've used Antec Earthwatts series before with no problems and I expected the same here, and mostly got it...
  • Cons: ...until I noticed a burning smell coming from my computer. I didn't have a backup PSU to test with, but when the system was on the burning smell got strong -- this side of my house could smell it. I would shut it off, and the smell would fade away. Pulled everything else out to eliminate source ...

Blew Out After 35 Days!

Johnathan M., Newegg
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I've only had the thing for 30 days, but because its warrenty is on the invoice date that means it's 4 days to late to replace. I might as well have thrown my money down a pit.
  • Pros: It worked... until it just stopped.
  • Cons: -The thing stopped working 30 days into having it. -All cords are pre-attached which makes things messer than they need to be. Also makes cord replacement impossible.

FIRE HAZARD!!!!

Nasser H., Newegg
30 March 2014
  • Pros: The power supply worked great for about two years, but then started smoking.
  • Cons: Basically this power supply had great reviews and good efficiency. I used to recommend it to a lot of people, but many people have been having issues with it dying and smoking. It is a big fire hazard. Many are having this issue after two years of use or more. STAY AWAY. I used to rate this produ...

10 Months Old & Smokin'....Literally.

Michael W., Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Pros: Worked fine without issue for 10 months.
  • Cons: At the 10 month mark, unit just flat out died. "What is that smell?" It's the Antec Earthwatts inside my copmputer. I have contacted Antec twice regarding warranty and have gotten no reply. I would not buy this brand again based on reliability combined with lack of customer service.

bigguy, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I got this power supply last april. Yesterday noticed a burning smell coming from it and the fan had quit spinning. I have an old antec true power power supply that I used for years and years, very dissappointed in this and will stay away from antec in the future

Safety Hazard

Adam M., Newegg
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I originally put in for an RMA but can't in good conscience use it again after all of the reviews reporting fires when this unit goes. I won't even sell the new one as it could kill someone. This product needs to be recalled, if it isn't, I won't buy Antec ever again.
  • Pros: Worked well when when it worked.
  • Cons: My computer shut down and I could smell burning rubber. MANY other people have reported this unit to catch fire. Consider this unit a serious safety hazard.

Almost Lasted 2 months!! -_-

Willett H., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Summary: You are seeing a trend now in the Newegg reviews... I hope Antec corrects whatever issues they are having with this power supply, because the word is out. Gamblers: You can roll the dice on this one.
  • Pros: None at this point - The Pros tend to be forgotten when you are in the middle of a project and your power supply dies and takes your work with it...
  • Cons: Died after 1 1/2 months - Now I get to do the RMA dance with Antec, and in the meantime I am without a PC...Yay!
