Summary: Cables are extremely short and are not suitable for an ATX case. Also, the connectors are extremely frustrating to plug into anything; they barley fit. I bought cable extensions for this power supply and I cannot get them to fit, but they fit perfectly on any other power supply I own. Do not buy this power supply. There are better alternatives at the same price point.
Summary: In-Laws kept getting power surges because of their crummy electric company it finally killed the PS on their PC. I had this same PS sitting here so I used it to replace their fried one. I always keep one around because friends and family are always have some kind of PS issues. I have used this make and model on about 5 other PC's and have yet to have one fail.
Beware of dead, out-of-the-box power supplies - I have 2 that can't be returned & are now garbage.

Summary: Make sure you install the part immediately & verify that it works. I bought 2, but didn't install them for several weeks. They were both dead. I verified with a working computer & 2 testers to confirm. Unfortunately I can't return or replace them, so they go in the garbage.

Summary: We have had good results for this power supply when installed as a replacement for older computers. There is a good variety of connectors which makes it a universal power supply for lower end standard towers.
Summary: This is for both the RD400-2-SB and the RD400-2-DB. Both would not power up on a Compaq sr5501p with M2N68-LA motherboard. I tried the recommended trouble shooting by shorting the green and adjacent black wires and at least the PS fans ran. I put the Bestec 300w OEM supply back in and it powered right up. I'm disappointed since I've had good luck with another RD400-2-SB in an HP Pavilion desktop.
Summary: I bought this item to replace a 10 year old PSU in an old desktop I built. This power supply worked right out of the box as expected and my computer is back up and running. It features a nice mix of molex 4 pin power ports that are used by most case fans and IDE hard drives, as well as the new SATA power connectors for newer HDDs and cdroms. It also has the extra 4 pin break away connectors on the main motherboard connector which is nice.
