Noise, space, cords, basic gear.

  • Summary: Try buying a different company's product. The customer service isn't really that enjoyable, the products are "meh", and the variability between the same products is too high for a cautious consumer to risk.
  • Pros: It's affordable. You won't lose your lunch over this product. It also covers any basic gamer gear, in regards to power.
  • Cons: It's pretty annoying with the cords spewing everywhere. I would have imagined that they would have fixed that issue before shipping it.

  • Summary: sometimes you dont allways know what you think you know!
  • Pros: this is a very nice powersupply. very clean and well done.
  • Cons: the insturctions are not so good. they are not very helpfull in assisting what some of the cable are for. the "help desk" from XFX is very very slow to respond. If at all. i do like xfx products. i think that the costomer service could use some help.

Not bad, but could be better.....

  • Summary: Next time I will most likely go with a better known unit--was more than a bit worrysome that the unit could have started a fire in my system......the "new" unit seems to be working well so far.
  • Pros: Good power--quiet...the RMA process was very good.....
  • Cons: I had used this unit for slightly over a month when I heard a loud "pop" from it about 11PM one night---then sparks came out of it....Glad that I have my system on a hard surface & not on carpet......I installed my backup PSU & started the RMA process with XFX. They were on the ball & I had a Ref...
