5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works perfectly, and is currently powering an i3 processor and a GTX 650 GPU.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I recommended this PSU to a buddy when he needed a PSU with more wattage. He gave me cash, and I used my card to buy this PSU. He hasn't had any troubles with it, and everything runs smoothly.
