4 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: I just got this power supply in the mail today and my first thoughts were... Shiney, the case is indeed very shiney and glowly and green.

One thing, this thing is QUIET even sitting here now I can just barely hear it running.

Cons: Had to jury rig the thing into my case for mounting, it was slightly taller than I figured. Some of the wires are too long for my case and a few are confusing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: VERY QUITE! Has 3 fans which is great. Supplies all the juice I need. Comes with screws, power cable and 20pin to 24 pin converter (would've been in trouble if it didn't come with it). Has two SATA power plugs, and plenty of normal plugs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Pretty and Green. Newegg super fast ship!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Green lights are awsome. Not too bright, not too dull. Mirror finish is great. DEAD silent.

Cons: Long motherboard connector. Mirror finish leaves smudges very easily.

5 out of 5 eggsLean green power

Pros: Single rail, quite, good power quality, glows green.

Cons: glows green.

Other Thoughts: I was a little scared about this thing when I tested it before putting load on it the 3v rail was .5v off but after putting some load on it every thing was dandy. This is a great power supply I would buy it again if my wattage needs for a different system are <= the one I put this into. I have not noticed it stay on after shut down, and the box seemed to indicate that this model does not do that, so I don't really know why people said it did.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Super quiet. Price with rebate was only $20. Nice and heavy. Probably the best power supply under $50. Three fans! Even runs fans for three minutes after shut down to remove hot air from case. The green is really nice and goes with the Smilodon Extreme case very well. Buy it! The best kept secret on newegg.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsNifty Looking

Pros: Three Fans, Quite a solid and high quality product. The many green little LEDs are bright and nifty looking.

Cons: only a 450w PS but thats all I need in my case and for how much it was... worth it.

Other Thoughts: Works, cheap and Nifty looking...

5 out of 5 eggsWell made and looks sharp!

Pros: It's really well built. High-quality mirror finish and the green glow is a nice accent without being obnoxious. The power is stable and the three fans keep it nice and cool. The wrapped cables are nice and they look good under a blacklight (if you are so inclined).

Cons: Three practical things I wish this unit had (and I would be willing to pay a bit more for):

1) Shorter cables. Some of the cables are too long. The main power trunk cable is almost 16 inches long (before you add the 4-inch ATX12V adapter), while your average mobo has it's power block within 8 inches from the power supply. So instead of a clean, unobstructed motherboard, you have this huge cable coiled up in front of you, impeding airflow and otherwise getting in the way.

2) I wish it had modular connectors for the non-essential cables. There are a bunch of extra IDE and fan power lines that I don't need.

3) The two-plug SATA power cable is pretty much only good for one type of SATA device (i.e. two CD/DVD's or two HDD's). With only about 4 inches of space between the two plugs there's no way you could run an optical drive in the upper bays and an HDD in the lower bays off this one cable (at least, not in a mid-tower). Two SATA cables would be better.

Other Thoughts: I bought this PSU because of the price, and despite my issues with it, I like it alot. The green looks cool, and the mirror finish is superb. The power output is clean and stable, and it provides enough juice that you've got some decent headroom for expansion or overclocking (or both).

5 out of 5 eggsRelabeled OCZ

Pros: This is a rebadges older model OCZ Powerstream, used to be top of the line until PCI-E came out.

Cons: No cons with this unit.

Other Thoughts: Strong 12v and 5v rails. This psu is fine for the newer low wattage Intel psu's, all that is needed is a few adapter for cpu 4 pin ($3.) and pci-e 6 pin to molex ($3.) and your good to go with a modern build.
Google the OCZ 450 Powerstream and you'll find this. For a good mainstream psu that won't let you down, this is a steal.

5 out of 5 eggsGood replacement PSU

Pros: A good quality replacement psu for a standard case suppy.Plenty of connectors for adding more hardware and connector ends clearly labled for novice system builders.

Cons: Unused connections may crowd out a smaller or crowded case interferring with system fans if not secured.

Other Thoughts: Delivery from newegg is always faster than I expect :)

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: Beautiful design, good cord control. Installed easily. Fans are indeed silent, lights look nice. Very high-quality manufacturing, worth the extra investment.

Cons: Manual mentions hookup for fan controller on the motherboard, but it didn't have the plug shown or anything that would work.

Other Thoughts: Being silent, it doesn't really matter that the fans are always on. And no, there is no way to turn the lights on and off.
