Good Craftsmanship

Gregory M., Newegg
16 September 2013
  • Summary: I have had the same brand power supply for about 7+ years now and it was more than enough to handle the upgrades I put on my own pc this one was for a new build for the wife.
  • Pros: Provides ample power needed for the accessories and the system so far without a glitch.
  • Cons: None so far

Great PSU for 3+ Years

Michael A., Newegg
13 July 2011
  • Pros: While running, it was extremely solid and quiet. Plenty of connectors to get the job done and the black mesh over all of the cables was a great touch.
  • Cons: As so many are reporting, this PSU just up and died on me today for no real reason. I guess that, at least, it's predictable?

Fails after several years

Samuel G., Newegg
1 March 2011
  • Pros: Great while it lasts. It's quiet and has lots of connectors.
  • Cons: It seems to die just when the 3 year warranty is up. I had two of these identical power supplies die within a few months of each other... each were just over 3 years old.

Average

Jeffrey L., Newegg
17 January 2011
  • Summary: Didn't really put too much stress on PSU. It followed Murphy's Law and died just after the warranty expired. Fortunately, it didn't kill any peripherals. It started to not come out of standby mode and then just wouldn't restart at all.
  • Pros: Quiet
  • Cons: Lasted 3 years 2 months - 2 months after warranty expired

Worked for a little over one year

Martin W., Newegg
2 February 2009
  • Summary: It is unacceptable for a power supply to work for such a short period of time. The unit has just died. Zalman offers no U.S.-based customer support phone numbers. Zalman's expensive CPU cooling fan has also just died in my other computer. Bad brand.
  • Pros: Quiet unit, good connections.
  • Cons: Worked for just a bit over 1 year.

Same as the Silverstone ST50F

  • Pros: Just an informational comment. This is internally the exact same power supply as the Silverstone ST50F. (according to Hardware Secrets website.) The Silverstone often sells for less money, and has more connectors.
  • Cons: x

Nice while they last

Terrence R., Newegg
5 August 2008
  • Pros: Very nice units, very quiet.
  • Cons: Two out of two units failed after about a year and a half (running continuously). The Zalman customer service insisted the warrantee was only for a year, even though the box and the "Owner's Manual" both say it's for 3 years. After arguing, they sent a new one, in a box that says "3-year warrante...

Failed after 4 months

Michael T., Newegg
14 July 2008
  • Summary: In the last year I've purchased 5 Zalman's for customers, and 1 for myself. This is the second one that has failed within 6 months. I'm losing faith in this brand.
  • Pros: Good while it lasted, very quiet.
  • Cons: Died after 4 months. RMA'ing through Zalman.

Failed after 11 months

Trey D., Newegg
13 April 2008
  • Pros: Very silent, braided plastic sheath around all cable runs to keep things manageable, large fan at the bottom to pull air out of the case.
  • Cons: Failed after 11 months of use. Trying for a manufacturer RMA since the box touted a 3 month warranty.

good while it lasted

Anonymous, Newegg
23 February 2008
  • Summary: I'm torn as to whether or not to get another Zalman. This supply was nice and quiet but an impending failure after a little over a year is not a good sign.
  • Pros: Cool, quiet, reliable.
  • Cons: Suddenly started smelling like roasted electronics after 15+ months of near continuous operation. I opened it up and there was a bulging capacitor.
