Antec VP350 Power Supply Review

Hardware Secrets
1 March 2012
  • Summary: The Antec VP350 is an “honest” budget power supply that can really deliver its labeled wattage, with superb voltage regulation and outstandingly low noise and ripple levels. The only issue with this power supply is its low efficiency below 80%. However, it presents 80% efficiency if you pull between 40% and 60% of its labeled wattage, i.e., between 140 W and 210 W. This is good enough for users looking for a budget 350 W power supply.

Antec Basiq VP350P 350 W

11 October 2011
  • Summary: It's nice to see respectable companies releasing budget products without major compromises to their performance and quality. This is exactly the case with the Antec VP350P. Although Antec used one of the best (and most expensive) OEM PSU manufactures, Delta Electronics, they managed to keep the retail price low, heavily boosting price/performance ratio.
  • Pros: Low price accompanied by fairly good performance, Tight voltage regulation on +12V and below 3% for the minor rails, Handled full load with 44.2°C operating temperature, really good, Outstanding ripple suppression on the minor rails and good enough at +12V, Despite its low capacity, which imposed a major setback, the VP350P managed to successfully pass all Advanced Transient Response Tests
  • Cons: No MOV in the transient filter so this PSU should be used along with a surge protector, Short cables can cause compatibility issues with large cases, Efficiency surpass the 80% mark only with >90W loads. Also the peak measured efficiency (81.76%) is low for today's standards, Max. combined power overrated by 15-25 W, Group regulation can have negative impact on performance
