Decent...maybe

Jared G., Newegg
31 March 2015
  • Pros: I bought this to build a very low end computer to replace my grandmothers very dated Dell running Windows XP. The 300 watts I knew was a bit much but I wanted to make sure that if anything is added later it can support it. Thus far it gets the job done except...
  • Cons: this thing is LOUD. I've never heard a fan coming from a computer this loud in a LONG time. The noise from the this fan is finally drowned out when I put my bedside fan on medium. That's terrible. I almost want to get another one and send this back.

  • Summary: I bought this power supply as a back up for when I needed to replace one on my home computer. The power supply recently went out in my home computer. So I took this power supply I bought a year and installed it in computer and went to power on my computer and it would not power on.
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: Doesn't work.

Power Supply

John S., Newegg
10 November 2013
  • Pros: Good power supply. It didn't help the Hp Amd pc I ordered it for it seems the mother board is dead. Hopeing the power supply was bad I put it in another pc I thought would never go again and well it's going GOOD for now. Don't trust the green light or l.e.d. Also the Hp Amd pc power supply is dead.
  • Cons: The included power cord is a little short.

It works

Doggymama, Staples

  • Excerpt: The only bad thing I would have to say about this is that the fan is a little bit louder than the original power supply on the computer. Otherwise, it have been working every time I turn on my HP desktop. But I have not had this item for very long so I have yet to see what the life span is.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use

Terrible product

Corey S., Newegg
9 January 2013
  • Pros: It does power on my device...
  • Cons: So when I opened the box, the tab which locks the main power connector to the motherboard was broken and floating around in the box. Second, the thing is VERY LOUD. Third, it just looks poorly constructed. I do not trust it.

Died after 3 weeks use

Anonymous, Newegg
3 May 2012
  • Summary: This was the first (and Last!) cheapo PSU I will ever buy. Probably work fine for a Celeron or P4-478 or Sempron... something that pulls no more than 200W totat...
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: Died after 3 weeks use pulling constant 285W verified with KilloWatt meter. Cost more to ship it back than it's worth, so chop off the wires/connectors for spares, pull fan for whatever and junk the rest. I know it was loaded hard... but it's rated 300W...

Not Bad

Chandler W., Newegg
27 April 2012
  • Summary: Great buy for how cheap it is.
  • Pros: Works like a charm, has easily removable Molex plugs, and the 20+4 pin power connector has a cover around the cables.
  • Cons: Pretty loud. I could probably hear it if it were in another room on the same floor.
