2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasts

Pros: Absolutely fantastic for its lifespan. I was able to get a faithful 2 years and 2 and a half months out of it with a Z97 board, i5-4690-k, R9 270, 4x4GB of RAM, two SSDs and three HDDs. I had it more than a bit oversubscribed but it chugged through it without any fluctuations. If you need a budget PSU to get you by for a little while, This is a great PSU. Just not there for the long run.

Cons: Dead at two years and two and a half months with no warning. Just a sudden failure last night.

2 out of 5 eggsBlew up

Pros: Worked good for first month, was able to leave my computer in for days at a time with no problems

Cons: after the first month it blew up while I was playing one of my game, I know for sure it was enough to power my rig because I previously had a 350watt but upgraded to this to power my gtx 960, Just know this PSU has a record for blowing up

1 out of 5 eggsTime bomb

Pros: None

Cons: -The last month of it's life shut computer down at random times
-Strange ticking noises

-After one year of random shutdowns, it exploded. Thank Goodness my parts still work.

Other Thoughts: Never buying from LEPA again

5 out of 5 eggsquiet and powerful

Pros: cheap

Cons: not modular

Other Thoughts: needed a 12 power source so i bought this.
gutted all the wires out and soldered one pair of 10 gauge wires to the pcb.
under full load the supply get warm but never hot and the fan is quiet no matter the speed.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement for older rig.

Pros: Great features for the price. Nice looking with all the cables and connectors I'll ever need for this aging rig.

Cons: As with other reviewers I would have liked to see sleeves on all the wires. But hey, it sits under a desk all day where no one sees it.

Other Thoughts: My daughter's PC would randomly turn off so I tested the old PSU and the 5vsb was defective. I didn't want to spend a lot on a PSU for an older rig (Athlon X2 4200, Radeon 7770) with modest power requirements. This PSU fit the bill perfectly. I left it on for two days and no issues.

3 out of 5 eggsnice but not correct psu for combo build they sell

Pros: Current motherboard power ports, reasonable price for 500 watt psu

Cons: bought with one of the combo build sets and the motherboard that it came with had only 4 plug power port with caps on either side of the port making the PSU unusable. Had to swap a PSU from another build to get the combo I bought to work.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy it!

Pros: A cheap time-ticking bomb...

Cons: First off, I did not buy this from Newegg but from a hardware store.
My lack of research and impatient caused me a big mess. After a few days of use with my FX-6300 CPU, it decided to blow up on me during one of my game. Before, I noticed a few static noise coming out of the PSU (very noisy) but I didn't bother with it. KABOOOM.

Now, I am forced to buy a better PSU for 80 dollars and pray that all my components will still be fine. If this PSU claims to have these "protection" then I will give a 2 eggs.

Other Thoughts: My friend also owned this PSU and using FX-8350 for over a year now. He also have a huge static noise during gaming, but he couldn't afford a new and better one. I will donate him the money to save himself a 800 computer rig.
