Summary: Purchased Aug 2013 to replace a 7 year old Antec that finally gave out (gently, just turned itself off). Bought this model because I needed a replacement immediately, it had seemingly good reviews, and there was a rebate.
Pros: It was cheap?
Cons: Not quite 15 months after purchase, it just lit itself up like fireworks. A series of earsplitting sparks and then thankfully it died, as it filled the room with toxic smoke. I feel like I'll be lucky if any of my components still function once I get a new supply. I think I'll stick to Antec now....
Summary: I built a new PC for work and I leave it on 24/7 for remote access. One weekend our building was doing some work where the electricity was going to be shut off so I went in early to shut off all the computers.
Pros: It worked well for a little over 3 months. System: MSI CSM-B75MA-P45 mobo i7-3770 CPU GeForce GTS 450 1 SSD and 1 storage HD
Summary: Power supply would shutdown after 250 watt load was placed on the system, usually in about 1-3 min. RMA'ed the power supply and the second one has the exact same problem. Switch to a separate brand 500W power supply and that works fine.
