Summary: What was i thinking? This thing is good only for a replacement in a wal mart bought computer or something. Always check to see who the oem builders of these psu are. Always spend a little more for a quality unit or it could cost you your entire system.
Pros: Antec Brand, great price, thin wires for an itx build.
Cons: Snap Crackle POp!!! Died with drama 2 weeks after I got it. luckily didn't take anything else with it. Didn't buy it from new egg but had to warn others.
Summary: Well, now I get to see what the steps are to remedy the situation. Not sure what liability Antec will take if the other parts are fried. Not having another PS to test with, I cannot test what my status is. Praying the whole system isn't fried. :( (And no, there was not any elctrical issues going on at the time. Everything else in that room is fine including another PC about 5 ft.
Pros: worked fine at first for roughly 3-4 weeks, inexpensive
Cons: shorted out in just under a month. This is a new build with all new parts. It suddenly cut off while my son was watching youtube on his PC. I came to see what was up. The whole room was shorted out, so I reset the breaker. When I pressed the power button again, this time I heard a pop and saw a spark shoot within the power supply. NOT GOOD. I am just hoping it didn't destroy all the other parts of the new system.
Excerpt: Bought it online and picked up in store. Very easy. It did the trick and fixed my computer. Plenty of sata and ide connections. It's been installed for about a week. So far so good. It is alot quiter then the oem gateway power supply it replaced.If you are " tech enough" to figure out you need a new one then you will obviously have no trouble installing it.
Excerpt: This is a very good power supply, especially for the price when it went on sale. It replaced a burned out power supply from my Windows 7 desktop that had a stock 300W that it came with. Since I was going to be adding a graphics card and extra hard drive I knew I needed more power for the computer so I opted for the higher wattage power supply. It is definitely built solid and does not feel cheap. Came with all the cabling I needed to get everything connected.
