Died after two years

Jim B., Newegg
30 October 2011
  • Summary: It was good while it lasted!
  • Pros: Bought it in October 2009. Used it on a PC that was hooked up to my TV for Netflix, video streaming, DVDs, etc. Worked great. I had the PC set up to go into standby mode after about two hours. Worked great!
  • Cons: I say "worked" cause it died yesterday.

Slight Manufacturing Flaw, But Good Power Supply

David R., Newegg
11 August 2010
  • Summary: If you are looking to get a power supply, and you aren't sure how many watts to use, find a power supply calculator. Newegg's calculator is overboard and doesnt give you an accurate number.
  • Pros: Very quiet once I figured out what the horrible noise it was making was. Looks nice. Stable Power. Powers this computer with no issues: AMD 250 X2 ASROCK m3a770de PNY 8800GT RipJaw 4GB (2x2)Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL 3 SAMSUNG EcoGreen F2 HD154UI 1.5TB Harddrives 1 Asus DVD burner Silverstone PSO5-...
  • Cons: This is why I gave it 4 eggs: Initially it was LOUD LOUD LOUD LOUD. It sounded a lot like bearing going bad, though the fan spun up fine. When I got it, the cable cover that makes the cables look nice had 1 lousy piece that was sticking under the cover of the fan blade on the power supply. I look...

Not as quiet

Dustin G., Newegg
26 July 2010
  • Summary: Still a good purchase, but I did want to post about the sound, I hate white noise
  • Pros: Nice and long cables, plenty of connectors, 80+ for pretty cheap
  • Cons: Not as quiet as an older one I was replacing, it's not loud, but just not quiet.

Working great so far

Anonymous, Newegg
16 July 2010
  • Summary: Bought this to replace an hec piece of shnikes that was slightly more wattage and cheaper but DOA. Definitely go for quality over quantity when it comes to PSUs. Don't make the mistake of buying a cheap thing that'll die on you.
  • Pros: Had it about a week now and there aren't any problems with it. It's pretty quiet and looks purty too. I hear good things about Corsair power supplies so I'm fairly confident that this will last as long as I need it to.
  • Cons: The only con is that I found a deal for a 500W Corsair a couple days later for the same price that I paid for this one :(
