Every advancement in computer technology -- every new graphics card, sound card or CPU, means a greater need for power. The Apevia (Aspire) ATX-CW500WP4 500W Power Supply is high on efficiency and reliability, with a clean design that helps reduce power consumption, while solid construction ensures system stability. It has dual fans that provide quiet, powerful cooling, while industrial-grade protection circuitry protects against power and voltage surges.

Two +12V rails (12V1, 12V2), will support most of your components under any load. It has one main connector (20 + 4 pin), one 12V (P4), two SATA, two Floppy, and six peripheral connectors. This state-of-the-art power supply also features universal input and ATX12V v2.03 compliance, so you can use it in a variety of situations and almost everywhere, with confidence.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for budget PC

Pros: Great price
I bought this back in 2010 and haven't had any problems since. It has survived any power outages that sometimes happen due to bad weather. It also has never stalled due to being overloaded either. It's quiet, the only noise I ever hear is from my video card under load.

Cons: None, works as expected.

Other Thoughts: I have decent budget build with:
Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard
AMD Athlon 64x2 5050e 2.60GHz
EVGA Nvidia 460 EE (external exhaust)
4GB OCZ DDR2 800
LG DVD-Rom drive
WD Caviar Blue 320GB 7200rpm
WD Caviar Green 500GB
2x 120mm case fans

5 out of 5 eggsStill works 10 years later

Pros: WOAH, how is this still on newegg?

I bought this in 2007 and it's still working.

Cons: it has an unnecessary second fan, but can be taken out for a quieter psu.

Other Thoughts: lol to the people saying "DON'T BUY'. Guess what, you got the BAD luck of the draw! Don't arrogantly deem a product junk when it's a 90:10 ratio positive.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It turned on the computer, that's about it. Might be alright for a system with onboard video.

Cons: Does not supply enough power for a mid grade PCI-E video card.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: 1-year warranty

Other Thoughts: Mine lasted just over 4 years before a capacitor exploded and it took out my hard drive since it was the first hit on the run. I guess that's a good run for a $20 PSU ($20 with a $20 rebate), however 3 and 5-year units aren't much more. I should have looked at those instead, IMO.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Plenty of connections

Cons: Barely enough power to feed my cpu fan and motherboard lights

Other Thoughts: This PS caused some type of surge and fried my case's on/off power switch. I had to replace the switch. Thankfully nothing else was damaged.

Manufacturer Response:

You can do an RMA through us for the power supply to get an exchange on the PSU if you are still under our warranty period. You can contact Apevia's customer service at service@apevia.com or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Starter PSU

Pros: Excellent for its price! Delivers plenty of power for a basic gaming rig (so long as your graphics card only requires a 500 watt PSU) nice and quiet! dual fans keeps the temps at a reasonable temperature!

Cons: Its cheap, and made in china! So while it works, don't expect it to last long! if this is all you can afford at the moment, buy it, and switch to something of higher quality as soon as you can afford it!

I switched PSU's simply because my rig got to the point where it needed more power, so out of curiosity I popped open the PSU (yes I voided the warranty, sue me!) In all honesty, what I saw I kind of expected: traces thickened with solder, excess solder around all the joints, flooded with flux, all hand soldered (SMD included) chars, unused connectors (i.e. having a connector in place then soldering the wire underneath it!), the caps looked fine, but the choke coils looked as if they were going to give at any minute! just bare minimum effort given to make the thing work!
Buyer beware, this thing isn't meant to last!

Other Thoughts: I know my con review made it sound like a bad product! It's really not bad... it served its purpose! Just be sure to swap it out when you can afford a better quality PSU, That's all!

2 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: Quiet, cheap, decent wattage, does what any basic working PSU should do. The most this thing is able to do is run 2D games.

Cons: This thing crashes your entire system without warning under very small loads, so unless you're only playing 2D games, do not buy. This thing is cheap for a reason, it was made by APEVIA, hear of them before? Didn't think so. Save yourself the trouble and buy something even $20-$30 cheaper.
It crashes because it overheats when running any decently demanding 3D game. It can run some 3D games without crashing longer than others. For example, I can run Alien Isolation for about 20+ minutes before it crashes whereas Counterstrike: Global Offensive for about 30+ minutes before it crashes. Either way it's a pain to reboot the entire system every time when only playing for about 20 minutes of a game that should be easy to run.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself the time and money and just get something else that can actually do what it's supposed to.
