5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: Semi-modular
Single 12-volt rail
80 Plus Bronze
Model I received had all black wires as apposed to some sleeving over colored wires shown in the pictures
Very attractive price

Cons: The pci-e cables were too short to route behind the motherboard tray and back to the gpu (fan-down position in a Fractal Arc Midi R2).

Other Thoughts: Its hard to complain about anything considering what I paid for it compared to other similar power supplies. Just wish the pci-e cables had just a little more length. But it works fine so far and had the features I wanted at great bargain.

2 out of 5 eggsGood Power Supply

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: Good Power Supply. Does what a 550W power supply is supposed to do. Great modular design.

Cons: The product works okay but do NOT count on rebate from Rosewill products. It takes over 3 months for them to deliver a rebate.

Other Thoughts: Since all computer products are highly competitive, my ratings reflect the value for the dollars I spend. If the product does not work or if you have to fight for a rebate the aggravation factor applies. This was one item for a new computer build for Christmas. I had 2 rebates, this one and one for an MSI motherboard. Both were sent in at the same time. I received the MSI rebate a month ago. The Rosewill rebate was never even acknowledged. I had to call to find out the status-it will be another month. Rosewill products are NOT better than the competition, they are just cheaper. Don't count on Rosewill rebates.

3 out of 5 eggsNo frills Semi Modular PSU

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: semi-modular
enough connections
quiet

Cons: -1 egg
Cables are plastic coated no mesh.. all black (might be a positive for some) stiff .. really really stiff

cables are a bit short in my case ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147185 ) rosewill galaxy -03 really had to struggle to get the 8-pin cpu run around the back side of the mother board ( i foreseen this and ordered a 8-pin extension cable which was shipped from New Jersey while this psu was shipped from TN ?? seriously guys and arrived the next day due to delays prolly won't use it till my next build)

-1 egg

the 20+4 motherboard connectors were also quite the task to get connected once again due to the stiffness of the cables
- no eggs

The extras (the baggy to hold unused connections i'd have passed on to have individually braided cables rather than going out and buying a set of cables through a 3rd party)

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: It's quiet. very easy to install. I love how the power wires had to be plugged in at the PSU as well, makes it clean and very easy to work with. Very large fan, should last a good long time

Cons: Its not dead silent, I can barely hear it!

Other Thoughts: I would buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty great

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: Really quiet. Modular. Best budget PSU I've come across.

Cons: Not taking an egg off but I really wish there was some way to choose how many of what kinds of cords come with power supplies in general. I have 1 SSD and no optical drive or anything else I need that chain for. Oh well, random thought, not particular to this PSU.

Other Thoughts: Cool and quiet and modular. What more can you ask for at this price?

5 out of 5 eggsStill Strong after a Full year

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: Good price, about the cheapest you'll find for a 500+ watt modular PSU. Modular design is helpful for cable management.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Chose this for my first complete build, and after a year I couldn't be more pleased. The only thing I have approaching a quibble is that I've had to do an off-on toggle on the power button after a power outage a couple of times to get it to restart. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

Pros: Very inexpensive
Supplied with flat cables
Semi-Modular
Provided steady, clean power.

Cons: Nitpicky since I knew it when I bought it, but I really wish the unit had fully modular cabling.

3 out of 5 eggsNoisy

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: modular design
runs cool
efficiency
cable bag
appearance

Cons: This thing is the loudest thing in my case and I didn't even try to buy quiet fans for all my other devices. The details say this thing has a silent fan. Apparently "silent" means you need to be more than 6ft away. At 3ft which is normal distance for a tower, I can clearly hear the fan. Also, mine has a clicking noise which is even louder. I suspect the clicking noise is not normal and I have a defective unit, but the fan noise sounds normal and is by no means silent like they claim.

1 out of 5 eggsA let down during the Holiday Season

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: None

Cons: Dead on arrival. Looking into the vents reveals tons of glue poured over the components inside the PSU. I purchased this PSU in October, during a sale, for a gift. When I finally plugged it in and started the computer that it was to be used in, nothing started. The fans were silent, as was the other components. I then switched outlets, plugged it into a surge protector, and desired and required the computer twice. Nothing worked. The only hint that the PSU is there is the standby light on the motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsDead After a Year

This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply

Pros: The price was O.K at the time of purchase, and it was relatively quiet.

Cons: After a year of regular use it died; most likely causing the death of my motherboard resulting in a frustrating turn of events regarding RMAs etc, etc.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this purchase. If you're looking for a dependable PSU go Corsair. Rosewill is less expensive but is prone to failure. I learned that the hard way.
