POORLY MADE

HT S., Newegg
7 September 2014
  • Pros: LOOKS GREAT AND MATCH WITH HIGHER END BLACK CASE
  • Cons: WE BUILD AT LEAST 100 PC A YEAR AND FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS HAVE BEEN USING THESE POWER SUPPLIES. OUR COMPUTERS FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS HAVE MANY ISSUES WITH BLUE SCREENS AND POWER SUPPLY SMOKING. ONLY RECENTLY DID WE REALIZED THAT THIS WAS THE CAUSE. HAVEN'T HAVE ONE ISSUES SINCE USING A DIFFERENT BRAND. STAY AWAY

Not a true 480w

Zacary G., Newegg
13 August 2014
  • Summary: I ran this PSU fine up until I decided to swap to a r9 280x in which I switched to a cx750m to feed the power hungry gpu. Probably wont ever go real cheap like that again on a PSU. The CXM is cheap too however just with the few extra bucks spent you can really see the quality difference. I have a new build currently in the works and I've already purchased a SeaSonic X-1250. I probably wont ever go cheap again on PSU's. Learned my lesson.
  • Pros: I bought the PSU to power an AMD APU (a10 6800k) and a 750 ti ftw w/ acx. Did just fine
  • Cons: The PSU itself as well as the wires look extremely cheap. Doesn't look very pretty in your build case

Is what is is...

John W., Newegg

  • Summary: Just again I have to say I am in awe of how long this little dude has lasted, and really surprised at how well it still runs with my "modern" system on the weekend that I built for friends. If you are only going to spend 20 or so bucks on a PSU and are unwilling to go up to 40 or more than buy this one. Don't even look at others.
  • Pros: Bought on 6/30/2006 for a rig I built my wife. The thing is still working just fine. She doesn't use that desktop as frequently as I use mine since she uses her Laptop more but hey with that many years on it for the price I payed it's no biggy. That is sort of why I went cheaper on some of components, knowing her desktop wasn't going to be her daily driver or even close to it looking back, she used it for more for power oriented tasks. Back in O6 I built it to go with...
  • Cons: Hmm, well yes it is a cheap cheap PSU. I don't think I would recommend this power supply to anyone who has the money to spend on a better one, you just don't skimp out in the power supply part of your builds. The wires can be a bit messy, but it's an old design, they are a tad short unless you are running a mid tower or ITX then don't buy it. Other than that if you have to absolutely buy a cheap PSU for whatever reason this is a good choice. For $20> I don't think I w...
