2 out of 5 eggsFan is close to dying. Power supply ranmdomly doesn't power on.

Pros: None.

Cons: After about 1 year of ownership, the fan began to make a lot of noise and shows signs of dying, this wouldn't be that big of a deal if it we're possible to take apart the PSU without damaging the circuitry. Also, the PSU outputs lower watts then advertised, which is just fudged up.

Other Thoughts: I've learned my lesson, never again will I buy a cheap PSU hoping to save some money. Hopefully I can get my money back and put it towards a new PSU from a different brand.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed, poor company warranty

Pros: It supplied power for a while

Cons: FAILED in just under 4 years of light to normal usage. The warranty was for 5 years, but the company makes you pay to send the failed unit back. Because it's so heavy I had to pay over $14 to ship it to them - that's not a real warranty. A real warranty is 100% coverage. I know this from experience, and also because I did tech support for a hardware product where the company paid to send a replacement, and for the return of the failed one. Thermaltake wants to wait until you send the failed one back before sending you another. If you need it sooner, they will put the charge on your credit card for the replacement, and then not credit you until you send back the failed one. What a crooked bunch. And just try getting customer service on the phone. When you call you get voicemail. I had to call them 3 times and speak to their "operator" before finally getting a person. The guy I spoke to was polite, but actually had the nerve to tell me that if I couldnt wait all the time they would take to ship a replacmement, that I should go out and buy myself a power supply - thats a warranty???
Never again. I suggest buying from a better manufacturer like I will be doing from now on.
And if anyone wants to suggest that 4 years is a normal life for a power supply, its not. I still have the computer that I owned before this one, that 300 watt power supply is still working just fine and its over 13 years old.

1 out of 5 eggsWarranty not worth anything

Pros: Had all the features I was looking for

Cons: When it died after 2 years Thermaltake was MIA, then when I finally could get a hold of them it was a real process to get it taken care of. In all I was out one power supply for about a month and a half. Never will purchase Thermaltake again.

2 out of 5 eggsand it died...

Pros: Nice looking, numerous cables extensions, cables encased, sharp looking psu.

It operated dependably until it passed away yesterday. Little warning it was failing (front usb drive stopped working two weeks prior).

I think I paid $30 after rebate. Fair price.

Cons: This lasted only 2.5 years. Pathetic. I'm a low-load user and I still don't own a video card that can be powered by the 6-pin pci-e cable.

In the past I've gotten 8+ years out of off-brand names.

Power (in)efficiency of 72+% ...

Other Thoughts: Covered under their 5 year warranty. I will find out how much to ship it to CA tomorrow. I was able to have a replacement psu sent out the next day with a c/c deposit.

Replacement will be a slight improvement. tr-500

Great while it lasted... hopefully the replacement will last FAR longer!

3 out of 5 eggsBurned Out

Pros: Worked great for about 3 years...

Cons: Burned out like many other users. Can't say I am happy, I have to replace it none the less.

Other Thoughts: Wasn't expecting the best quality out of it, but it gave a good 3 years, wish I didn't have to replace.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid for Over 2 Years Now

Pros: I bought this to supply a new power hog of a GPU; the Radeon 4870. For the last two years, this thing has been nothing but reliable and is never the culprit when I troubleshoot my computer.

- More than enough connectors for SATA, PCI-E, Molex, Etc.

- High amperage on the 12V rails

- SUPER quiet. No discernible noise whatsoever.

- Fits well into a small case: microATX motherboard with small tower (whichever is smaller than mid-tower).

Cons: - Not a modular. I have cords everywhere that aren't needed.

- Only 500W (even though it's a high end 500W which is comparable to many 600W ones out there)

- Slightly warm, but nothing alarming.

Other Thoughts: This is my first power supply that is from a reputable brand, and I will never be going back to anything less!

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't last....

Pros: I loved the braided cables, and they were plenty long enough to reach all parts of my mid-tower case. Was not as loud as my previous power supply. Ample power for my 6-core 125w Athlon and ATI graphics card. 2 PCI-X power connectors.

Cons: It didn't even last 2 years. Like another poster, mine fails on power-on. When turning the power on at the supply the keyboard receives power, so the 3.3v rail works. When turning power on for the PC though it fails, so either the 5v rail, 12v rail, or both are faulty. I even tested it in a PC that only needs 180w and it can't power that! It has a 5 year warranty, so we will see how that goes. It actually failed in November 2012, so it lasted about a year and a half. I replaced it, but luckily for me I kept it, and finally decided to check the length of the warranty!

Other Thoughts: This is not the first time I've had a power supply fail on me buy any means (especially considering all of my years as a tech). This IS, however, the first time I've had any power supply fail that quickly...even considering the 150w-185w ones in work PCs. This was my second time buying a Thermaltake power supply, and the other one I purchased days before looks like it is starting to have issues as well. I will think long and hard before bying this brand again!

5 out of 5 eggsNice for the money.

Pros: Everything has been a plus about this power supply that I can see. I bought this power supply to put in my mothers computer after she had another go out a while back. She uses her computer for just about everything but mostly for doing graphic arts related projects. So she needed a reliable and sturdy power supply to run her computer that has an AMD Athlon 3x processor, a couple of terabyte hard drives, and an EVGA GTS 265 graphics card. Since my 600 watt worked so well for my personal computer I decided to go with the 500 watt version for hers and haven't looked back since. I would definitely recommend getting one of these power supplies for your own computer.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Was really cheap when I bought it and works well

Cons: I wish some of the wires were longer so I could not have it go straight across the mobo.
