5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU for the price.

Pros: Cheap and reliable.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've had this PSU for just over a year, running 24/7, and it's been very stable. Keeps case cool with just one intake fan and no additional exhaust fans.

5 out of 5 eggsFingers Crossed

Pros: Very inexpensive. Was apparently enough power to get my basic computer to work with additional video card. For this kind of money, it's a win if it works at all.

Cons: Just 2 SATA power connections, but that was all I needed for this machine.

I was as scared as everybody else by the reviews about overheating, but at least so far, everything is running perfectly cool. Granted, I don't need 500w. Probably less than 300, to be perfectly honest, though the video card said minimum 350. So, I'm not taxing this thing much. Will update the review if the fan gives out or I encounter an overheating problem in the future.

1 out of 5 eggsPlastic melted

Pros: High Wattage

Cons: The black plastic near the power supply plug pins melted. Thankfully I noticed the smell and acted in time.

Other Thoughts: Brought this in november of 2009, yes 2009. It worked for a couple of months till the plastic melted.

I would not recommend getting this.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Affordable and Great Value

Pros: Great Value and Quality, these installed in a system build and had no problems from the start. Quiet fan keeps the PSU cool without being overly distracting when on. Good cable length for mATX system build and is a good cost effective solution to power your new build. The two 12V rails keeps your power nice and steady for other peripherals without taking from the CPU and other critical systems.

Cons: As an reminder this PSU is for standard economy builds and wasn't meant for high end gaming machines. It does have the standard connectors but does lack the PCIe power adapters for SLI and or external Video cards requiring external power sources.

Other Thoughts: A quick note, if memory serves this PSU doesn't have the 8 pin 2nd Gen intel processor power connector for CPU. So I believe this is not compatible for an intel 2nd gen system setup.
