1 out of 5 eggsMy Last FSP power supply

Pros: It lasted more than a year

Cons: I have been seeing a LOT of FSP power supplies bad lately in both my own and client machines.

My local stores stopped selling them. Maybe the failure rate was too high.

I have 4 bad FSP power supplies in my hands right now. 4 of the last 4 bad power supplies I have replaced have been FSP units.

Other Thoughts: This 700 watt unit was VERY lightly loaded. (<200watts). It only powered a dual core CPU in a backup server that idled 99.9% of the time because all it did was hold 11 hard drives used to hold backup data synced to it each night.

I now buy Seasonic, Corsair, PC power & Cooling

I have a PC Power supply that has been running daily since 2006.

I think I paid more for this Junk FSP and I just did for a Gold rated Seasonic 750watt unit which has a much nicer build quality.

3 out of 5 eggs...and kablooey

Pros: Ran very well for the 5yrs I have had it. Enough plugs for many drives and enough for a heavy graphics card.
Nice blue paint job.

Cons: Died pretty catastrophically. Some secondary caps went out but the entire unit died (found this out after replacing the blown caps). Same thing happened to a 600w version of this power supply I had for the wife. It now only works if the load is under 100w, and barely then.

Other Thoughts: This kind of failure makes you hesitant to buy from the same manufacturer, so probably will not buy another FSP. I do wish though that other manufacturers would have a blue paint job, not just black or silver or black with red.

3 out of 5 eggsCould be better

Pros: - Pretty efficient on energy use
- Works extremely well with my mobo seeing as it uses APS
- Great concept

Cons: Well, I hadn't noticed the amperage output on the PSU and unfortunately it gives off a very low amperage. This is probably the issue people have with it. Most gaming, or high end motherboards require more amperage than this can give, so it will work for a while but will eventually go out on you.

Other Thoughts: It's pretty weird that this "green" psu would come out around the time where technology is changing, but this instead of changing just altered their power regulation and output and called it "green".

2 out of 5 eggsEarly Retirement

Pros: Worked well when it worked.

Cons: PSU completely failed after 3 years and change
Damaged my hard drive (thanks!)
High price for a product that's unreliable

Other Thoughts: FSP claims 100,000 MTBF this unit died after 28,536

I'm really disappointed, and it's caused lots of trouble and downtime. That was my last FSP, time to fins a reliable PSU.

2 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 years

Pros: Worked well before it died.

Cons: Power supply died after 3 years of moderate use. For $140, I would have expected a higher quality power supply.

3 out of 5 eggsBad after less than 5 years

Pros: Bought it from Newegg in 10/2006, went bad around 07/01/2010, so it worked for almost 5 years.

Cons: It should have last at least 7 years for what I paid for it. I didn't even leave it on 24/7.

Other Thoughts: Will never buy another expensive power supply again. My Antec at 500W is 7 years old, $100 less, and still running strong according to my PS tester.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: The great people at NewEgg took care of me, as always. Thanks to them!

Cons: This arrived DOA. At first, NewEgg wanted me to talk to the manufacturer about this, so I did. They insisted it wasn't their fault, and I quote "We don't make bad power supplies. All of them ship working. It's not our fault it doesn't work. No refund or replacement is necessary because you're probably doing something wrong." Ok... well, this one didn't work, and after NewEgg RMA'd this for me, and I got the other PSU it fired up first try, set-up the exact same way as this one was and worked... So if it's me and not these guys fault, explain how yours didn't work and another manufacturers did right out of the box? Just admit it was defective, don't say it's my fault. I think I'd know if it was my fault.

Other Thoughts: Customer service is a joke with these guys. I was very polite in handling the issue, but some guy who could barely speak English put the blame on me. Good call. It's always the customers fault.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks great when lightly-loaded

Pros: This is an excellent PSU for stock speed machines with a single graphics card.

Cons: Squeals like a 10 year old girl who's just been given a free pony when you apply any kind of real load (4870x2 in 3d mode, highly OC'd dual or quad core)

Other Thoughts: Hasn't failed yet, but man oh man, I'm not going to wait for it to.

JohnnyGURU hasn't had nice things to say about FSP's recent units either, under heavy load they're real dogs.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for 2.5 years

Pros: Nice color/design, good cable bundling

Cons: failed after 2.5 years, no support for this unit on fsp web site

Other Thoughts: The unit worked great for the first 2.5 years, but failed last night suddenly while I was playing a game (single graphics card). There was no evidence of the unit failing before this happened. I was surprised to find that the unit isn't listed under the support section of the FSP web site...
