After 2 years of use, I can say this is a good PSU

  • Summary: 550W is probably not enough to use an NVidia GTX 770, so I might have to get a new PSU. That's my fault though for underestimating my necessary wattage. Use this website application to calculate how much power you will need, and on the capacitor aging category, select at least 35%.
  • Pros: -Very quiet
  • Cons: -Was a little more expensive than other products at the time that might have worked just as well at $70...

  • 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

Brian S., Newegg

  • Summary: This computer is not one I use often, it's a secondary unit that I run occasionally (several times a month at most).
  • 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.

  • Pros: works, quiet, lots of cables
  • Cons: not modular, could be cheaper
