Pros: -80 Plus Bronze Certified
-560w is more than enough for a mid range gaming computer
-Aesthetically pleasing

Cons: -Non-Modular (though I already knew that when buying it)
-Cable Management can be a bit annoying, especially when I don't use even half the provided cables, though I tucked them away in an unused hard drive cage

5 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby

3 out of 5 eggsProduct may be OK but the rebate is very restrictive

Pros: Works with my i7-2700k without overclocking so far. I'll update the review once I try overclock.

Cons: Rebate is very restrictive. It requires an ABS number that I couldn't find anywhere. And you have to submit it in 20 days. Be careful with the deadline. I missed it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, Clean, and Quiet Power

Pros: I needed a PSU to run a small mini-itx build and this power supply fit the bill perfect! Small and light (but heavy enough to know there is something in it!!!) More than enough connectors and can support two lower range video cards or one high end.

Cons: I don't like how the molex connectors arent on their own line, but coupled at the end of the sata lines.

Other Thoughts: Powers:
Intel Core i5 2500k
Gigabyte z77n-wifi
8gb G.Skill Ripjaws X @ 1600mhz
Kingston SSDNow 128gb
Western Digital Black 1tb
EVGA GTX 660 SC
Antec Kuhler 620

5 out of 5 eggsPSU

Pros: So far, pretty awesome PSU. Much better than the one that I had. Plenty of connections, more SATA than I will ever use, but it runs very quiet. Awesome upgrade from a Rosewill 400W.

Cons: I knew that it didn't light up, but kinda wished it had..
