Great PSU for not so much $$$

Josh, memoryexpress.com

  • Summary: Great power supply for the money!
  • Pros: Long enough to run from the bottom of my huge beast of a case to the top. Nice and quiet, and plenty of juice.
  • Cons: None so far. I've been running this baby for about 7 months now with heavy use.

Stay Away.

  • Summary: I bought this power supply as an external source of power for my current power demanding video card and future peripheral cards without taxing my current PSU and prevent from damaging my computer in the long run. I did a paper clip test to see if it is DOA and it was.
  • Pros: Inexpensive for a 500 watt and it looks nice tricked out black.
  • Cons: Cable management sucks and not custom plug-able because all the cable attachments are there but hard to manage if its all treed from the PS and gets tangled.

Do Not Buy

  • Summary: The cables are a rats nest even though it says on the box that it's "Cable Management Optimized". The cables aren't sleeved. I've had it for two days and it's already extremely loud in my system that doesn't even have a graphics card.
  • Pros: Nice looking
  • Cons: Terrible Cables Loud

  • Summary: Overall a very nice PSU, and works well. I haven't ran into any problems with it yet but the longer cables may cause a problem for smaller case but other than that its perfect for a mid-range performer graphics card and CPU! It's a well built PSU.
  • Pros: -Lots of connection option -As the box said longer cable! -Very easy for cable management even with my Zalman Z11 case! -Very quiet and has flexible compatibility with 2 AC voltage (115V-230V) -Very clean aesthetic, love the coated black finish fit's perfectly into my case -Haven't had any proble...
  • Cons: -For smaller cases the longer cables wouldn't be a very good fit but I would find it hard for anyone to buy a PSU like this for a small case! -the SATA connectors were postioned weirdly because its plugged in upside which I found a bit of a hassle because I wanted to connect my DVD SATA and my HD...
