Great PSU

brian k., Newegg

  • Pros: Great PSU for the price. OEM is Seasonic and the quality really shows.
  • Cons: No cons- bought it knowing that it was non-modular but it did make cable management a challenge.

Solid Unit

Trent-Tech T., Newegg

  • Summary: I have not used one of these myself but this is the second one I have purchased for customer builds. Only time will tell if it was a good choice but certainly there are no outward indications otherwise.
  • Pros: Heavy for a 550W PSU which suggests the heat sinks are robust. Seems solidly built in every respect. No frills, sleeved stout PSU.
  • Cons: None

Great PSU, great price

Atul G., Newegg

  • Pros: Very good PSU, solid 550W. I could not power my R9 280 card with a OCZ 700 W PSU but with this 550W PSU it works like a charm. Will buy 2 more but the rebate expired.

Watch out for Rebate Nonsense

Robert M., Newegg
21 April 2015

  • Pros: Well made, quality appears good
  • Cons: None noted

  • Summary: Very solid psu, especially if you snag it on sale for under 30 USD. I had it as my spare psu for a while, but eventually moved it into my nas, where it stayed on for about 5 months straight without a hitch at about 30% load and stayed very quiet. All in all a very solid unit with seasonic oem.
  • Pros: Seasonic oem Decently priced Solid Unit Good Warranty
  • Cons: Not Modular Not Higher Efficiency

Great PSU, Just Hope Yours Isn't DOA

Kendall L., Newegg
21 March 2015
  • Summary: Well, where do I start? The first power supply I got worked fine for one day then I was on a wild goose chase. Ssd and hdd randomly froze and would not come out of sleep. At one point it tested fine on voltages and the paper clip trick so I thought it was the mobo.
  • Pros: 80+ Bronze Long (IMO) CPU 8pin Sleeved 24pin Plenty of cables for upgrades
  • Cons: Maybe it was mine but one mounting hole is a little off Need lots of room in case to hide cables Some connectors feel a bit cheap while others feel robust

  • Summary: One of the gripes I got is that the voltage sticker is on the top not on the side. You have to remove the PS to see what voltages ratings are. I suppose if you have a windowed case, the logo would look better than the specs.
  • Pros: PS has a good look and feel to it. Fairly quiet. Good price to value ratio especially on sale. Very pleased overall.
  • Cons: The voltages ratings are a little different. The PS I received has ratings of 24,24 and 44. Which matches the picture which is different than the Newegg advertisement.

Great PSU for the price

Andy S., Newegg
2 March 2015
  • Pros: Lots of cables, great value
  • Cons: Fan is a little noisy, gives off a ticking noise. I'm probably just picky when it comes to fan noise, but thought I'd mention it. I don't think its worth knocking off an egg for this. Just don't expect a 100% silent fan.

  • Pros: The power supply is excellent. Very quiet and power efficient. I replaced this one to my corsair 500 watts. I tested this one is much better.
