8 years going strong

Allen P., Newegg

  • Summary: If you are hesitating about this because of the low price, don't. It's been a workhorse for 8 years running. Not as fancy as some other ones but the job gets done.
  • Pros: Reliable, I have had this in a computer for 8 years with no issue. I do clean the dust out of the case twice per year.
  • Cons: Not very fancy with the cables.

Have had 3 of 5 go bad

Anonymous, Newegg
2 April 2015
  • Summary: It needs a 5 year warranty because it breaks so often under constant use. I would not put more than a 300W constant load on these PSU's if you want them to last. Have had 3 RMA'ed so far and now maybe 4th (out of 5 purchased) needs RMA.
  • Pros: Okay cable lengths... 500W they say, 5 year warranty. Fairly cheap supply. Quiet fan.
  • Cons: Cables not covered, just bare wires. Doesn't hold up under constant use. NOT 80+ rated and no PFC...

500W of electricity

Daniel W., Newegg
13 March 2015
  • Pros: Install was easy. powered on right away! Had all the connectors I needed
  • Cons: Some of the wires leaving the power supply box were entangled with the other wires making it more difficult to separate and properly manage the cables.
