Do not buy!!!

Aaron A., Newegg

  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: This power supply surged when connected through 2 different surge protectors and took out the ram modo any graphics, every thing as under warranty but was verry hard to get back to a working state. Just spend 30 more on a name brand.

Logisys PSU

Douglas E., Newegg
15 March 2012
  • Summary: Cheap price, cheap manufacturing. It's still working as a replacement in the PC it was installed in. I was a little concerned when I got it, pulled it out of the box and felt like I was going to crush the housing if i squeezed it too hard. Other than that, it did what it was supposed to do.
  • Pros: Cheap, Cheap, Cheap
  • Cons: Cheap, Cheap, Cheap

  • Summary: The PSU this replaced was rated at 250W. Personally, I wouldn't trust this PSU to deliver a full 480W on a regular basis, but for the load I'm using it for, I think it should be sufficient. If I were shopping for a mid or high end system, I would have gone with a different brand.
  • Pros: Purchased this PSU to replace a dead one in a coworker's aging Dell desktop. I was looking for an affordable replacement part and this fit the criteria.
  • Cons: The build quality stood out as feeling rather cheap. This PSU didn't feel as heavy as some other brands (It's about 2 or 3 pounds). With power supplies, weight is usually a good indicator of overall quality. The wires feel a little loose where they attach to the various connectors. The plug on the back where the cord goes was partially obstructed after installation (not enough to impede use), but I blame this on the case, not the PSU.

A little worried, but should be fine

Luke W., Newegg
4 November 2011
  • Summary: I have just recieved this power supply, and to be honest by the other reviews I am a little worried. Seems to me that this power supply is a mis-represented unit. It does only have 300W, but peaks at 480. I'm not exceptionally worried though, because my OEM one that came with my computer was a 300W as well, and peaked at 350. It lasted me well over 4.5 years. My advice is to buy this WITHOUT the need for huge power demands.
  • Pros: Great looking, 480 PEAK, 300W consistant, excellent wiring, has everything I could ask for and the price is fantastic!
  • Cons: Feels like a cheap power supply, only 300W consistant.

  • Summary: Don't buy.
  • Pros: Work well if you don't leave your computer on.
  • Cons: If you are the kind of person who always runs there computer then the fan WILL fail in this unit. I have installed 20+ of these in customers computers and the people who leave there computers on all the time have me back in there office in 6 months replacing the powr supply again.

  • Pros: Fixed my restart problem from lack of power. Its pretty quiet and so far still works. Amazing price.
  • Cons: Not very many connectors. I'm running a dvd player and burner, two ide hard drives and a floppy. If i were to upgrade my video card that requires a power input from the psu there would be none available with this setup.
