  • Pros: Large fan, runs very quiet. Sleeving on cables is nice but could cover more of the cable.
  • Cons: Cables are very stiff and some bending is needed to get the SATA power cables to fit correctly in tight cases/drive bay situations.

Excellent Power Supply

Jeffrey S., Newegg
18 June 2014
  • Summary: I enjoy cake.
  • Pros: Runs cool and quietly. The size is perfect for smaller builds. I used this model for a NAS running 6 Caviar Green drives and an ASROCK Quad-Core Atom Server board in a Fractal Node 304. It fits nicely and powers everything without any issues. I'm also running a higher end model in my HTPC and it has been working like a champ for over a year.
  • Cons: It doesn't print money.

Boss status PSU

Afshan W., Newegg
23 April 2014
  • Summary: If you're going to buy a PSU, this is definitely a great PSU. Fully Modular, cables are mostly a good length, and it's 80+ Bronze Certified.
  • Pros: Worked out of the box. Not that big but the perfect size. Fully Modular. Cable length is decent (cables come sleeved)
  • Cons: The 8 pin connector is a bit too short to route behind my case.

SilverStone Strider Plus ST50F-P 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V 80 PLUS BRONZEREVIEW

Ron, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Would have given it 5 stars but I agree with some people that, for a 500 watt supply, the cable could have been shorter since it's touted that the PS is perfect for a Mini-ITX case. Uh, YEAH, if the cables were shorter since a Mini-ITX case is cramped to begin with. I may spring for paying for shorter cables to tidy up the case inside but the price is steep.

  • Summary: This is a solid power supply being used in a small NAS case. A great option SilverStone makes is a Short Cable set for real compact cases : PP05

High quality Power Supply makes all the difference

Chris K., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I had bought this Silverstone power supply because I was tired of coil whine in my computers(high pitch when plugging in), dirty power ruining parts (SSD went bad) Games failing, etc. etc.
  • Pros: First of all I just want to say, computers are EXTREMELY sensitive. No they can't feel emotions, but they can feel dirty power, and if you are going to look at the price of this and say . . . but some other brand offers the same amount of wattage for less, you are extremely mis-guided my friend. Let me share my past experience with you. I had purchased a power supply claiming 580W for $20, this was a Logisys, a new egg purchase. Fancy gloss black aluminum looked like ...
  • Cons: Price? But what is the price of protection?
