5 out of 5 eggsWorks great after 3 years!

Pros: Was easy to install. Has everything you can need for a basic/gaming setup.

Cons: Cables are hard to bend because of the outside sheathing. It is possible to get cables to bend but it risks ruining the cables. SATA power cables are hard to install in a case with multiple hard drives grouped next to each other due to the previous problem.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend buying this. Personally I wish they would change the way the cable ran into each of the power SATA connectors so instead of going through the connector, the connectors would branch off. This would make installation in tight spaces easier.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product but don't expect a rebate

Pros: Good product even if it cost too much.

Cons: No rebate delivered :-| This is the first time I've ever been stiffed on a rebate. No reply to phone messages left with the Antec rebate department. No reply to inquires sent to vip@antec.com.

Other Thoughts: As far as I am concerned, Antec now needs to compete before rebate against other products after rebate, which considering Antec raises their prices so they can afford to have frequent rebates is a big disadvantage for them. For the cost I probably would have chosen another product from another manufacturer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: I've had this since 2012 and it's been more than enough power for my build. I'm keeping it as I upgrade soon, as well. VERY QUIET.

Cons: None at all! I've never had a single issue from it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Can't find any issues. It's a semi modular psu, great price and value. I think 550 should be enough for a decent setup with a single GPU.

Cons: Not really a con, but if you have a black case, the silver color doesn't match. I could care less because it's in the back of the case anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, basic upgrade for gaming video card

Pros: I have purchased a few of these power supplies over the years to replace the standard 300 or 350 watt power supplies that often come with prebuilt computers that use only the onboard video. Because I am into gaming, I need a stronger power supply to support the addition of a video card. I also add a second hard drive to the computers that I build to use as a backup drive. This power supply has easily handled the extra hard drive and video card (gaming cards such as GeForce ti 550's) and remains very quiet.

Cons: This is a basic looking power supply... I don't mind that. but, if you want one that looks "cool" or "hot" or whatever with glowing lights and such... this one is not snazzy like that. I'm not into what my computer looks like, but some people are. I will say, though, that I do like the LED's that you see on some power supplies so that I can tell that the computer is on, as this one is very quiet.

Other Thoughts: I hate noisy power supplies. This one is very quiet.

4 out of 5 eggsBP550 Plus

Pros: Second unit i have owned, First one still works after 2.5 years. Second one is just installed 36 hours ago and it works too. 444 watts on the 12v rail. The PCIE 6 pin and 6+2 pin both draw from Rail 3 with 25 amps.
Powers a Core i5 760 @ 3.9Ghz = aprox. 125 watts Max load.
Powers a EVGA 970 GTX SSC @ 1500/ 7800= aprox 250.

Those numbers are at Full LOAD, meaning Forced Load. Meaning you wont hit that load ever gaming.

Its semi modular, the 24 pin is hard wired to the PSU, the 4+4 CPU pin is hard wired, as well as the 6+2 pin. You will need them anyways so that makes sense. The rest are modular, the 6 pin, Sata, and molex.

No chirp or whine on either unit, Fan is quiet, big and works. Cables are plenty long enough for a Antec 902 case.

Cons: Documentation is lacking on specific details about rail assignments. Cables are a bit stiff, but just a bit.

Emailed Antec, they confirmed- Both the 6 pin and 6+2 pin PCIE power cables draw from Rail 3 at 25 amps. U can run a 970 on this PSU.

Other Thoughts: Price is decent for what it does. Hard to find reviews on it. Got the first unit at a Staples when my Kingwin 1400 watts died after 3 years. Staples was the only local shop selling PSU. First unit worked for 2.5 years no problems. Still works.
