5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal!

Pros: -Really quiet.
-Inexpensive
-quality build
-Great Value for the money
- not modular so no finicky connectors or plugs to come out. (modular isn't always a good thing)
- Lots of connectors for any hardware you have.
- Plenty of power for most users. (If you have 10+ HDDs and 4 GTX 980s in 4 way SLI then you already know what you need and you weren't looking at this PSU anyhow.)

Cons: - not modular, but as mentioned before this has its advantages
- The cables are a bit stiffer than some of my prior builds so just plan out your cable management before you start trying to stuff wires into tight places. Not that big a deal, though. (The positive side is that they used nice thick wires to efficiently distribute the power to your system.)

Other Thoughts: If you are even considering this one then buy it. At the very least you will have a nice back-up PSU to use while you RMA your $200 one that randomly reboots on you from a bad connection at a faulty modular plug. (Why do I keep mentioning that expensive modular PSUs aren't always better? Experience maybe?)

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems here

Pros: Good voltage under load
Sleeved cables
Quiet
Intel 4th Gen Ready

Cons: Non-modular, but I knew that when I bought it
Power cord seems a little short
Cable ends seem a little "off" - see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Make sure the cable ends fully engage. I had to really press on the ATX20+4 and the CPU4+4 to get them to lock. Also, the SATA connectors seem tighter than usual.

The cable length worked fine in both my Micro-ATX tower mid-tower and my Micro-ATX HTPC case. The cables might be a little short if you have a full-ATX case with a bottom mount supply and you plan to mount your optical drive in the top bay.

5 out of 5 eggsNice PSU

Pros: -Got it for $30.
-I have a mid-tower. Fits. (Duh)
-80+ Bronze
-Works

Cons: I don't like how short the power cable is. It's not unrealistically short or anything. Actually it might be normal size. But I want something longer. (That's what she said?)

Other Thoughts: Got this for $30 for a cheap gaming build. I don't know if I could have made a better choice.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: It's cheap! I was really surpised that it weighs more than another one that I paid big money for. There are big solid heat sinks inside. Cables are plenty long for a mid-tower and would probably work great in a full tower laid out traditionally with the power supply in the top back. Very quiet. This thing is major bang for the buck! We will see how it lasts. The prior reviewers complaining about a lose power cord must have received bad units because I wiggled the A/C power wire really hard over a length of time and I never lost power even for a split second. Tons of hookups.

Cons: I'm having to try and think about cons. If I have to put something I guess I'll say that It's on the heavy side so not a good idea for a portable rig. I don't know why people were complaining about the cables being short! They are actually a little on the long side for a smaller mid-tower and this thing would be impossible to install in a small rig because there would be too many wires to cram into a small case.

Other Thoughts: If you are someone that changes out your rig all the time then this may not be a good fit due to the long cables and non-modular design, but if you are like me and built a high-end system once every 5-8 years and take the time to do cable management the old school way (then it fits the bill perfectly. I can't stress enough how quiet this thing is! I thought my rig was pretty quiet before, but now it is dead quiet with only a hint of my video card fans purring when idle or just browsing the internet. I actually double checked to make sure the fan was blowing!
