Pros: looked pretty, shiny, heavier than it looks.
Cons: first one came DOA, i have an RMA in progress and when i receive the second one i will update my review with how it actually works.

Good so far
Pros: Redundant power supply. Lots of connectors with good lengths. Voltages look stable in BIOS. I can turn off one module and the other picks up the slack, just like it should.
Other Thoughts: I haven't done any load testing on this unit yet, but so far everything looks solid.

Not what I thought
Pros: All voltage lines tested well when I received mine (using a new 24-pin digital tester I also got from NewEgg), and this thing looks well-made. I like the assortment of cable connectors and cable length (not excessively short or long for my purposes), plus the fact that the hot-swap modules are held in place with a single screw so as not to be pulled out accidentally. It was packaged securely in the kind of polymer foam brackets that are used now for sensitive electronics, so no worries about damage or static... I'm always happy to see that kind of packaging. I was excited about the prospect of being able to order a dual, hot-swappable power supply for a DIY server using mainstream ATX formfactor parts.
Cons: Maybe I'm forgetting something, and ATX vs. micro-ATX PSUs do not mount the same way. The model name of this PSU, which was listed correctly by NewEgg and was on the box I received as well, contains the designation "ATX". This led me to believe I could get this to fit PSU bays that other ATX power supplies fit in, but this PSU is not physically compatible with my build: Although it is the perfect size HxWxD for the PSU bay in the 4U server chassis I'm using, with or without the ATX bracket on the exterior there is no way to get this PSU to align with any screw holes or even get the power switches to clear the chassis opening. It simply does not fit the exterior opening in back, bottom line. The PSU bay in this chassis is just like any other ATX tower PSU bay, despite this being a 4U chassis. The power connectors themselves are 24-pin ATX etc, but I'm not sure how this is suppose to mount in an ATX PSU bay... unless micro-ATX is not the same.
Other Thoughts: Back to school with me, I'm assuming this is my error and not dinging an egg for it. I received what was advertized, I must just be wrong about the form factor. Either that or I'm going crazy. Either way, I hope this is useful to you. If you know what you're getting, this looks to be a well-made product.
