Summary: I've used other brand power supplies and replaced a few dead power supplies for friends. I have seen OTHER BRANDS FAIL, which is why I stick with Thermaltake. I have personally use their TR2 430W, 500W and 600W models in my desktop PCs which run 24/7.
Pros: Reliability I have come to expect from Thermaltake power supplies. Having built & sold 17 desktop PCs in past 5 years & used Thermaltake in all but 2 of them, I have NEVER had ANY of the problems reported by others. Makes me wonder if their reviews are real or if they are trying to use their powe...
Cons: Cables are very thick and sometimes hard to handle in cases where space is tight.
Summary: I almost never give less than 3 stars for a product. It has to be really bad combined with bad customer service. Thermaltake wins on both accounts. One star, because you can't give less on NewEgg. /angry
Pros: It worked for 6 hours
Cons: It only worked for 6 hours. I bought it as a spare, so it sat in the closet for 10 months. I put it in a computer last week. When I tested the computer (total wattage - ~340W peak/95W idle) it ran for a minute and then died. Pretty annoying, right? Wait, it get's worse. So I muddled my way throug...
Summary: My first PSU (which was not a thermaltake) fried, and I replaced it with this. I used it for a few months before it fried too, and I used customer service to get it replaced. Now this one has been shutting off my computer randomly.
Pros: Cheap. Might have been worth the cost for how long I used it before it failed. Customer service is alright. When my first one broke they replaced it after I shipped it back to them. Almost paid as much with the UPS shipping as I did for the PSU >.>
Cons: Invariably breaks. The first one I had just fried out of nowhere one day. The second one I currently have fails pretty often but not permanently frying. It'll just shut off my computer entirely and I can't reboot it without powering it down entirely.
Summary: If you're looking for a high end power supply from a reputable manufacturer I'd suggest you check elsewhere.
Pros: Expensive paperweight.
Cons: Power supply received DOA. Returned for refund as I am not taking a chance with a company that can't even make a power supply that works out of the box. I can prove it's the power supply as I pulled a power supply out of another PC and the system booted immediately.
