Too often, when you’re building a system on a budget, you’re forced to choose between price and quality. Even on a budget, you need a stable, reliable power supply unit. The Antec BP500UB delivers 500 Watts of power with active PFC to save energy and industrial-grade protection circuitry which protects your components from damage caused by short circuits, over circuits, excess voltage and other hazards. Its UL listing and 1-year warranty ensure that you’re getting a reliable power supply.

An integral cooling fan helps to keep the power supply operating at optimal temperature, and at a low noise level. Despite its price, the BP500UB doesn’t skimp on versatility with enough cables – and power – to connect up to five peripherals, a pair of SATA devices, a PCI Express expansion card and a floppy drive. Just because you’re on a budget, it doesn’t mean you can’t have reliable power.

  • newegg High Power Output The BP500UB delivers 500 watts of power to your components consistently and efficiently.
  • newegg Industrial Grade Protection The Industrial Grade Protection circuitry protects you from damaged caused by common electrical malfunctions.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Budget Power Supply

Pros: It worked. Price was right and it had all the power connections I needed.

Cons: The two Sata power connecters need to be extended a little more. I had to use a molex to Sata extension to power my DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: For the price, no complaints here.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value

Pros: Cables are long. Lots of connectors with decent spacing. Not too noisy. Great price. Running this PSU inside an alienware MJ-12 server tower which is 25-30% longer than a standard tower, no issues with cable length. Solid, unit is well built and heavy.

Cons: The 2 sata connectors are about 2 inches apart. 1 is at the end of a cable run and the other passes the cable through it , so could make powering a dvd burner and a hard drive difficult if they aren't right next to each other. Nothing a $0.50 molex to sata connector won't fix.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've had this for three days now and it hasnt given me a problem yet!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There were a lot of extra cables, which would be good for someone who needs them, but they cramped up my mini tower pretty bad. I need a bigger tower i guess

3 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: This is being used on my first build. Very good power supply for the money. Has a decent amount of connections.

Cons: Very LOUD. I used to be able to sleep with my previous Antec power supply. But this thing is an airplane. I'm trying to figure out a way to make it run quieter.

Other Thoughts: Very cheap but noisy!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value!

Pros: Very good price on a high quality, direct-fit for my OEM HP power supply. Lots of power, 2 12v rails, 6-pin PCI-E graphics connector, excellent value. Very solid construction overall

Cons: Could use more SATA connectors, or atleast two on different cables. There are only two, about 5 inches apart on the same cable. Had to move my hard drive directly next to my DVD drive to make it work, but not a HUGE deal. Still 5 Eggs

Other Thoughts: Great overall power supply, correct dimensions for my original HP OEM power supply. No Complaints other than SATA connections.

5 out of 5 eggsSo easy it was scary...

Pros: Very easy to install. Everything was labeled for me.

Cons: Fan is noisier than I thought it would be - but can't beat the performance for the price

Other Thoughts: first time I swapped out a power supply - I was very nervious I would screw up the whole computer - worked like charm.
