Summary: Yes, I would recommend it for other people; if you have a basic HP or IBM type computer that the PSU went out on it, heck yeah. For those crazy gamer guys who demand performance, no way. For most computer usage, and for most people it works great.
Pros: I liked it because it's a budget conscience PSU that is a great little workhorse for your general/non-gamer type computers...for most of my customers who don't need a high performance PSU for their every day usage...works great for that.
Cons: I need more power for my own personal usage, but hey, for what it is, it's a great deal!
Summary: Just built a basic system that had no need for a monster supply, and this worked wonderfully. But...the number of included cables and ports on the supply to plug them into get used up pretty quick. Read the description of the included cables carefully to make sure this will cover your needs.

Summary: Excellent power supply but lately I've started hearing a small ticking sound continuously every few seconds. It's really annoying. It is definitely the power supply; I took the case off and inspected each part. But I haven't figured out what's causing it.
Pros: Works great.Cables are long enough to reach across even server cases.
Cons: Wire set is a bit stiff. Not a con on this model per se, but as cases get smaller or more crowded, flexibility would be a plus. Not on the part of the item, but on the purchase. Offered free 3 day shipping if I joined Premiere. Then was charged shipping after doing so.
Summary: I'm a little disappointed - I thought Corsair would be better than this. Fortunately it was a simple fix, but I shouldn't have to solder a connection that was missed at the factory. I'm a little surprised that it ran for 6 months before it became an issue...
Pros: Seems nicely built - see the caveat below. Fan is quiet. Good price
Cons: It worked well for 6 months, then I noticed that my PC would sometimes not power up. Long story short, I discovered when the power cord was wiggled, it would turn off. Since I got the thing for a good price and it is always a hassle to deal with RMA or warranty, I opened the unit up to find that ...
Summary: It works, what more can you say? There are quieter, more powerful, and more energy efficient models out there but this strikes a nice balance for a an inexpensive build. The computer it went in is owned by a senior citizen and their total computer time per day is < 2 hours and the rest of the time...
Pros: Inexpensive, strikes a nice balance of, cost, efficiency, quality, and durability.
