5 out of 5 eggsIt works!

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

Pros: It does everything it is supposed to. It is a Corsair, which is a solid brand. It has a decent warranty, to boot. What more is there to say?
Oh, and 80+ Bronze certified. I purchased this for $25, after MIR.

Cons: Not modular? But I knew that when I purchased it.
One of the screw holes did not line up perfectly on the computer case I was installing this in, so I was forced to use 3 screws to stabilize it. I think this is an issue with the case, as I had some trouble with the previous PSU, as well.

Other Thoughts: If you need a 500W PSU, and are on a budget, it is very hard to go wrong with this one. If you're limited on space, maybe opt for a modular power supply... but if you're in a Mid Tower sized case, you should be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

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

Pros: Great Price, exactly as advertised, I should have read more because it did not have the connector I needed, but kudos to Newegg who refunded my money and I purchased the right power supply.

Cons: None, I never hooked it up !

Other Thoughts: You have to love shopping Newegg !

5 out of 5 eggsSolid performer!

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

Pros: Solid feeling PSU, does not feel cheap like some other cheaper PSU's I've had...this one is sturdy, heavy and the finish coat is nice.
Comes with long enough cables and plenty of connectors to reach their designated area.
80 PLUS Bronze Certified
Built in fan is super quiet
I'm not running anything big but just an 85W CPU and 670GT graphics card so 500W is more than enough power!
Lastly, it's a Corsair...quality and reliability!

Cons: None so far after 2 months of usage! I use my main PC almost 24 hours a day and sometimes I have to leave it on for more than 5 days straight!

Other Thoughts: I got this PSU for my main PC build and it works well...what else can I say other than it's a Corsair...it means quality and reliability! If you got one that doesn't work, it's a manufacturing issue which NOT even Apple an control...so just return it and get another one.

I've had nothing but positive experiences with all of my Corsair PSU's.

Highly recommend this PSU unit at 500W for one graphics card...if you're doing SLI or CrossFire (2x graphics cards), you might want to get something with more wattage.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Unit

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

Pros: Excellent capacity for the price. Looks nice. Packaged well.

Cons: I set up a PC, using individually purchased parts, for my parents, who live two hours away. I put the PC together at home and transported it to my parents' house. I set the PC up on Sunday, and today, Tuesday, the power button does nothing. The PC doesn't power up. No lights. No fans move. Tried several different outlets, flipping the switch, two different power cords, and all of the connections are secure. Will be contacting customer support tomorrow because it is now too late to do anything about.

Other Thoughts: Great deal, if it worked.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU does what you ask it to

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

Pros: No issues here, plug n play so to speak. I enjoy the look inside the case too. I was worried that a non modular PSU would leave lots of wires everywhere, it wasn't hard to hid the unused wires.

Cons: none, works great.

Other Thoughts: Corsair is great across the board, and if their product does fail you, call them first instead of writing a bad review, nothing is perfect.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat deal

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

Pros: Very solid feeling PSU, does not feel cheap at all
cables were covered with a sheathing which was great considering the price i bought this at
Finish on the unit looked highly professional
Felt like it would be a great PSU
newegg gave RMA

Cons: The box that this PSU came in had very little to no padding and there just happened to be a dented corner from the package being dropped in the shipping process and upon further inspection an edge of the PSU was damaged. I did not get the chance to build my pc and i requested a refund from newegg which accepted

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't be happier

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

Pros: Bought it in December of 2012 and it's been working great ever since! It powers my evga gtx 660 ti with no problems at all. Great value and reliability for the money.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind spending the few extra bucks, you could get the modular version.

5 out of 5 eggsClassic power

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

Pros: I've used many Corsair CX units over the years, and I have yet to be disappointed. Stable power for basic systems. I don't know that I'd put a full gaming rig on a CX unit for an extended amount of time, but it's perfect for lower power systems were you want something that will just work.

Cons: None that I can think of. It's not priced at modular/80+ gold/etc, so that can't be a con.
