1 out of 5 eggsVery Bad

Pros: none

Cons: Dont buy this built my gaming desktop yesterday and today i was installing my OS it exploded,a giant spark came out and and smelled something burned and very noise .i will call them newegg tomorrow and get a full refund.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your review. For a regular gaming system, the most power consumption is used by VGA card. It requires at least 300W. Besides the VGA card, other hardware components such as a CPU, HDD, etc. also require certain amount of wattage. Athena Computer Power Corp. (ACPC) would like to assist any customer to choose a suitable power supply to fit the system requirements. Please feel free to contact ACPC Service Dept. at (626) 810-5008 or email us at service@athenapower.us Mon - Fri 08:30 AM - 5:30 PM.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: It fits the box... nothing else.

Cons: After connecting it the computer kept shutting off after about 20 seconds, I tried several times. This never happened with another power supply I have. Then once it stayed up for about a couple of minutes and there was a loud pop sound followed by a burned smell. The power supply had died!

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this. Newegg is also asking me to pay for return shipping on this defective product. Definitely not worth it!

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your review. Regarding the issue that you encountered, please reach Athena Power Tech Support at (626)810-5008 or email to service@athenapower.us (Mon – Fri, 9:00AM – 5:00PM PST). We would like to assist our customer sincerely.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away!!!

Pros: Price and form factor was the only pro I can say as it fit the bill at them time of my small itx build. That is where the positive quickly end.

Cons: When I first installed the unit I noticed a wining noise and I thought it was either my video card or cpu fan, but after switching out parts of my build I diagnosed it to the power supply. The noise is really bothersome, it makes me want to throw the computer against a wall.

The worst part about is that I contact the manufacturer since I was out of the 30 day return policy, they offered no help and stopped responding to my E-mails. The worst customer service ever I have experienced in a long time.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy this brand, they will not take care of you if the power supply is having issues.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsLearned the hard way

Pros: Cheap, reliable if it works the first time.

Cons: Won't always boot after power failure.

I have had 7 out of 12 that have the same problem.

Other Thoughts: I've bought a total of 12 of these, 3 different orders of 4 over the last 2 years. The first 4 worked and are still working, I have had problems with the most recent 2 orders. The computers I use these in have no power switch accessible, so I rely on the motherboard to always turn back on after it loses power. 7 out of the 12 have the same symptom. I can, however, sometimes leave it plugged in for 30 seconds, then unplug and replug and it get it to boot. This may not be a deal breaker for some but is definitely a problem for me.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased

Pros: Perfect fit for my old micro atx e-machine T-4200. It takes a very small PSU (5" x 4" x 2.5") and many listed as 'micro atx' are too large. Much appreciate Athena Power's cross reference chart on their website, which lists every make/model that each of their PSUs will fit, as many manufacturers/sellers don't even include dimensions in their descriptions.

Easy to install, connections reach without any problems and nice to have 4 Molex instead of the usual 3 found on most inexpensive units. I am transferring data off of some old HD's and the easiest way to do that is to install them right in this machine which has my biggest HD so I can copy the data right onto it, making the 4th connector important to me for that.

Yes, I can hear the fan, but just barely (others mentioned it being very noisy), and it is actually quieter than my previous PSU.

It is difficult to find a PSU the size that I needed that is higher than 250w, so again I am thankful to Athena for making one that fits both my machine and my increased wattage needs.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I wonder how many of those experiencing DOA problems or complaining of this PSU dying shortly after installation actually have purchased one that is not powerful enough (high enough wattage) for their needs.

That's what happened to me after my on-board video chip died and I replaced it with an AGP graphics card. I failed to notice that the graphics card called for a minimum 250w PSU, and I burned out several 145w PSU's (which was all I needed for my previous configuration) shortly after installing them because I did not realize the wattage was not sufficient.

1 out of 5 eggsAnnoying

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: It makes a horribly annoying whining noise. It's not very loud, but it is loud enough to where you want to pull your hair out after listening to it for awhile. This is my second power supply!! Cost almost as much as a new one to get a replacement under the warranty. Ughhhh.

Manufacturer Response:
