4 out of 5 eggsdoes the job

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Need this for a budget build for parents. Didn't need anything to fancy. Just need enough juice to power an A10 apu, single stick of ram, a 500gb drive, dvd drive and a couple of fans. Parents don't live near me and they are never opening the pc up so no need to ever worry about upgrades. I know once the system was built that would be it.

Cons: Now a day's I feel all psu's should at least be 80 plus rated. Also wouldn't recommend this for a beefy gpu. While it does have 2 PCI-Express Connectors this psu can't deliver 500w over the 12v rail which is the primary source of power for you cpu/gpu. You actually get 420w max. But you'll likely not be able to sustain that level do poor efficiency, hence my comment about being certified.

Other Thoughts: Be realistic about you power needs and this psu will serve you well. If you have a 100w or high cpu then i wouldn't go to crazy with a power hungry graphics card. Aside from that for budget builds this will do. I recommend but its depends on your power needs. I would imagine people buying a gpu that recommends a 500w power supply having failures with this. Suggest best for systems where normal usage rarely exceeds 400w.

1 out of 5 eggsBest Stay away from this one

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: It worked when I installed it

Cons: Just about a year ago I did a build of 10 nodes for a render farm. The first power supply dies about 6 months in, and I have had 4 more die.
No smoke or anything - the board gets power but the unit will not come out of standby. So far a 50% failure rate.
Don't buy this unit.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Please contact Customer Service and we can replace the defective PSUs. We would also love the opportunity to see what underlying issue is as well.

2 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Cost was decent enough and it had the Thermaltake name to it.

Cons: Dead on Arrival. Straight out the box. Attempted to use a tester on the PSU. It will blip for a few miliseconds when I provide power and then shut off. When I say blip I am talking everything too. Hard drivers, fans, everything.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We apologize about any inconvenience the DOA PSU may have caused. Please contact Customer Service and we can have the PSU replaced through warranty service.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Little PSU

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: - Thermaltake
- Low power consumption, ideal for project PC
- Competitively priced
- As quiet as one might expect. Not loud, not silent.

Cons: - None yet, serves it's purpose well.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this PSU on my Linux project PC, so I'm not thrashing it at all. Operates as expected, with no noticeable issues yet. I've always trusted Thermaltake and they haven't let me down so far. Got this baby as a ShellShocker and I'd rate my cost-to-benefit ratio as superb :)

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: I have this in a small Silverstone HTPC case tucked into a media stand. This this powers everything properly and doesn't get too hot.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: came with a Thermaltake rebate that was delivered faster than any other mail-in rebate I have ever gotten. Kudos to them.

2 out of 5 eggsSmoked when turned on

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Was good price - nice cables

Cons: Burned the first time plugged in but partially worked.

Other Thoughts: First turned on the unit it had a burnt smell, however, the computer worked, so thought it was just a resistor that got hot and had a new electronic hot smell. However, eventually the unit would not turn on. Checking voltages showed it had the voltages but the mainboard would not power up. This power supply was large enough to power the mainboard, harddrive, and the graphics card.

Also, it seems that I never have the correct documentation to get any rebates that I should get, so I have decided not to purchase any more products that have a mail in rebate attached. If its not an instant rebate then I do not consider the product, just not worth the time and hassle.

I replaced the product with a Cooler Master 550W unit that has worked perfectly.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
We can replace it through warranty service. Please contact Customer Service for RMA instructions.
