Summary: Dell 8400, dead PSU: Opt #1: <bling bling>, dell cust service, after 10mins "sorry sir, no availability, no ETA, no nothing" Opt #2: bought this ... arrived 2 days on Prime, 10 painless mins later, dropped right into the 8400, powered up and good to go ... highly recommend.
Summary: This rating is more about the delivery and function than the product itself. It was delivered super fast and was exactly as described. It did power on my Dell PC but turns out I had a motherboard issue, not a p/s problem. So while it didn't fix my problem, it did work.
Summary: This item lacked enough SATA to run two disk drives and a DVD burner, nor were they long enough. Had to order two SATA cable extenders at extra cost and delay. Otherwise, no issues. Performs well, reasonably quiet.
Summary: I ordered a model that was supposed to fit my 435 XPS Dimension but it turned out that it had a few different connectors. I looked up the wiring online and soldered a few old connectors to it and Viola'! It works perfectly! It solved my problem and runs great! The price was unbeatable!
Summary: This power supply was a perfect fit for the Dell it was put in. The shipping was very fast. I have Prime and it came in one day rather than two. I was very impressed. The only problem was 1st arrived DOA, but I had no problem getting a replacement and it arrived just as fast.
