1 out of 5 eggsBlew Up

Pros: Read Review from 04/16/2014

Cons: Blew up after 2.5 months.
Pop sound, then computer shut off.

Other Thoughts: Worked great for the first 2.5 months.
Then tonight, just blew up.
Was not doing anything taxing to the system, just went to check my email, when it occurred.

Sent an email to their company to see what can be done.
Will update when I hear anything back.

5 out of 5 eggsFingers Crossed

Pros: Power supply spec very good for the price, used a coupon code to purchase. Have only purchased Antec for last 7 years, taking a chance on this supply. Hoping it has equal quality to Antec.

Cons: Not that it is a definitive indicator, but was a bit lighter than I expected. Probably a full pound lighter than the Antec 400w I was replacing.

Other Thoughts: The product offering of Cougar looks very good, if this one last without any issues, I will most likely purchase again.
