Pros: Good design, small, cheap.
Cons: Clearly used, one end of it had coating of the fine fust that usually collects on areas of a computer case closed to fans. It was still in good condition, but the layers of dust clearly mean it was used, not new. This isn't a deal breaker, but enough to knock off an egg.
Other Thoughts: Compared to PicoPSU, this is better if you want a cheap option where efficiency is not as much of a concern, seeing as it's about half the price. I have not compared real world efficiency on this compared to my 90 Watt PicoPSU, but as this is being used in a HTPC that's only on for a handful of hours a week, it's not as important as my home server which is on 24/7.

Pros: It works
Cons: It broke within 10 minutes of powering on, the craftsmanship is bad. The PSU is open and short circuited with a wire near it. I RMA'd it but due to some small scratches newegg didn't accept it at all. Although the problem was hardware and not cosmetic.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy it. Make your own micro atx combo case.

FANTASTIC efficient and silent ATX power solution
Pros: Paired with a commonly available 60W (12V 5A) or higher, 5.5mm x 2.5mm tip LCD monitor power supply, this power supply is a fantastic passive and efficient solution for low-power PCs. My company builds custom passive-cooling PCs with these and a custom fabricated metal plate that goes over the empty power supply hole in a compact case. Our corporate Linux router with an Intel D510MO Atom-based motherboard and a 32GB SSD is completely silent and runs around 17 watts of power consumption at idle. Running the same combo on the mini-ITX power supply it replaced, consumption was about 25 watts. Pairing a fully decked out Atom D525 with a SATA desktop hard drive and SATA DVD-RW drive, this supply still laughs it off with a maximum peak power usage of around 30 watts, which is only half its rating! If you need a truly silent custom-built solution, this is definitely THE power supply you need. However, see the Cons section for some caveats.
Cons: While the supply is a solid solution for low-power applications, there are two MAJOR problems that will need to be considered before buying:
Other Thoughts: I have written to Newegg about the missing parts. Hopefully they will take care of the problem.
