5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Really fancy PSU here. If your looking to build a rig with lots of LED lights and something that will grab attention I would highly recommend this item. It would be great if it was fully modular but I have no complaints with this product at all.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Took awhile to come back in stock.

4 out of 5 eggsDoing its job

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Modular design seems to work good.
Regular sized PSU w/ 1000w a bonus
Has groovy lights that I don't need, But Im sure someone will enjoy
seems quite - I cant tell because it is in my server room inside my server, 60 other fans screaming at once - what is one more ?? (Yes a real server room not under a desk and called a server room)---
Got in on sale - so it seem logical for me to finally try a Rosewill and not throwing away too much money in case it was junk, and it doesn't seem too be so far - so I'm happy with it.

Cons: Haven't found any yet - it doing what I wanted it to do for over a month now, and I keep my server s running 24/7

Other Thoughts: I may try another Rosewill PSU for another build and see how it works out , as they seem more affordable than some others, and customers like a lower bottom line when it comes to computers ...

5 out of 5 eggsWorked Well

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I bought this as part of build I was doing in the Spring of 2011. I loved the modular design and the plethora of led lighting. Plenty of connection options for all of my accessories.

Cons: It died less than a month before the 1 year warranty expired. Unfortunately, because no more were available at that time from Newegg, I opted for a full refund and bought a competing model locally.

Other Thoughts: I would have preferred to stick with this unit if that was an option with Newegg at the time of my RMA. I ended up with a Thermaltake PS from a local brick and mortar store instead and have never had any issues with it. While the Thermaltake doesn't have the cool led lighting this Rosewill unit has, it is every bit as flexible at the Rosewill unit and has stood the test of time in 3 years of continuous hard use.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 2 years

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Ran great until it didn't

Cons: Failed 2 years into 7 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: The problem is not that Rosewill won't honor the warranty, they said they'd pay for everything and a replacement, but rather Newegg won't take it back without the original retail packaging. ITS OVER 2 YEARS! NOBODY KEEPS PACKAGING FOR OVER 2 YEARS!

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: 1000w
SLI/CF ready
Nice appearance
Lighting - Red was my fav to match my PC build

Cons: Dead after about a couple weeks worth of use.

Other Thoughts: I believe something happened with this thing to short out my motherboard. I sent my motherboard back and got it repaired and it's working now but the computer will boot up and then just shut back down... Sometimes I can't even POST - Most of the time if I let it sit for a while(turned off), when I try to turn it back on, it may get past windows and to the desktop, then randomly shut off. Then other times, it wont even get past the BIOS screen.

(flashed the bios atleast 10 times)

Power supply is faulty - Bought a replacement EVGA Platinum rated and it works fine.

Going to try to return and get my money back or at least have it as a backup PSU if they get it repaired or replaced..

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Just an update of my earlier review. The first one I recieved was DOA, but neweggs customer service was extrememly helpful in getting the RMA handled. I live in a remote area so shipping can be a hassle, but they got the dead one and sent me a replacement within 7 days. Good job on the helpful staff there! The new powersupply installed without any further issues and I am having no complications yet.

Cons: I wish the front lights were selectable as well as the fan light. It would also help to have a couple of the SATA and MOLEX cables come in a bit longer lengths.

1 out of 5 eggsFail after 8 months

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 - 1000W Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), Intel Haswell-Ready, 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, SLI / CrossFire Ready, Modular, Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Nice looking great LEDS and connectivity.

Cons: No reliability. Just fails without reason. PC just all of a sudden shutdown. The system was protected on a APC 1500 VA battery backup system. I will not buy another one of these. @nd one of this model has failed again.
