  • Summary: Bought this for a budget build. Good quality PSU that's stable, reliable, and also quiet. Downside with non-modular PSUs, it creates a mess of cables in the case. It comes with two 4-pin molex leads with 3 connectors each which is overkill. Not very many things require molex anymore.
  • Pros: stable, reliable, quiet
  • Cons: cable management can be a mess, two molex leads, one is enough

Worked, then stopped suddenly

  • Summary: Hopefully a replacement unit will not have the same results.
  • Pros: When it was working, it was quiet, and there were no power fluctuations of any kind.
  • Cons: Went to turn on the computer and all I got was a single beep on POST. After some troubleshooting and parts swapping, the power supply was the culprit. The spare 305W one I had ran the same system this could not.

  • Summary: Good price power supply. Cables all sleeved. I think they can have few less cable. Such a big clutter to hide, but that's just my opinion.
  • Pros: works, quiet, lots of cables
  • Cons: not modular, could be cheaper

  • Summary: Got this to replace an Antec TP2 550W that died. So far hasn't given me any troubles. The sleeves really help, but ideally it would've been nice to have completely sleeved cables or maybe even modular. For the price though this was the cheapest 550W I could find that wasn't from a suspect company. I wish there were 2 fans though, like my older PSU, but haven't had issues with it yet.
  • Pros: - Price was good, - For the most part sleeved, - Quiet
  • Cons: - Single fan

  • Summary: Ce bloc d'alimentation a puissance suffisante pour pratiquement tous les système avec une seule carte graphique et processeurs haut de gamme actuels. Il est silencieux et sont prix lorsqu'en solde est très acceptable. Avec un manufacturier comme Seasonic la qualité et la fiabilité est présente donc un très bon achat.
  • Pros: Bon prix lorsqu'en solde à 57.99$., Bonne marque., Bon manufacturier (Seasonic)., Ventilateur très silencieux., 80Plus Bronze.
  • Cons: Câbles rigides.
