4 out of 5 eggsNice PSU

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

Pros: Was on sale. Nice workmanship

Cons: None come to mind

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my first build. It was on sale. The unit is nicely finished and reasonably quiet. At least I think it is, because I mostly hear the graphics card. Sigh.

2 out of 5 eggsBroke 1 day too late

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

Pros: It worked for 31 days, providing enough power for my day-to-day. At max load, I was well under 70%, and this power supply unit was humming quietly along.

Cons: It should have broken on day 30 or 300, but it persisted an extra while into the wee hours of the night, leaving me with no RMA options on the morning of the 31st day. What a sneaky little unit!

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far, So Good

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

Pros: -Ample power connectors for a modern build
-Fairly quiet
-Small and sturdy
-Easy to mount and hook up

Cons: None so far. First build wouldn't boot to BIOS, so I RMA'd my first Corsair to be safe (since I didn't have the equipment to test if it was PSU, Mobo, or G-card). No questions asked, was sent a new one that is now powering a beautiful, powerful new PC.

Other Thoughts: Nothing but confidence and security buying from Corsair and Newegg! 3 or 4 years from now, when I have the cash for a serious rig, I know who I want powering my setup.

1 out of 5 eggsBad unit, stay away!!

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

Pros: Pretty Box

Cons: Bad unit from the box, only 30 day warranty. The unit made it 31 before it died!!! I bought this thing because it was a Corsair product.

Other Thoughts: Don't do it, save your money!!!
