5 out of 5 eggs Moderately priced and well built.

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Purchased to upgrade an aging Dual Core system. I was impressed with how Corsair included many of the cable connections usually found on many of their more expensive PSU's. This kit allowed me to add a mid level GPU to my build since the needed connectors were included. Even though it is Plus Bronze Rated, Corsair packs plenty of Punch, quality features, and value into this moderately priced unit. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an effective power supply upgrade, or as a first purchase starter build's foundation.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I am currently running the CX500 in an older build that many would consider a throw away. With the CX500 as a foundation, I was able to install a mid level 2Gb powered GPU, 8 Gb of ram, and SSD and other up to date components, The CX500 is a good workhorse of a PSU and puts out the rated Power without a problem. Having owned a higher end Corsair PSU for a few years, I was thoroughly impressed by the CX500's performance and quality build in such a low priced unit.

Pros: Was not DOA !
Purchased summer 2013, never had a problem.

5 out of 5 eggs3 Years Strong

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Easily installed in my PC and what a difference in quality! Swapped out my stock one that came with my HP desktop and it felt like cheap junk compared to the corsair. Very nice quality and has been going 3 years strong with no hiccups or fuss.

Cons: No cons.

This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This power supply has continued to work for over 1.5 years now. It's quiet. The cables have mesh over them.

Cons: The cables are not modular but is not a big deal if a person has the right case with good cable management.
