2 out of 5 eggsCable outs reversed.

Pros: Reliable! Good Power. But ugly mounting.

Cons: Reversed main cable outs on rear. Mounting in a modded case looks bad. Led cabled outs are hidden from view. ABS what is wrong with your style. Other piper rock Power supplies are correct why not yours. Poor design for looks. Fan needs to go downward but then a cable mess on the wrong side of the PSU housing.

Other Thoughts: Will not buy due to wrong cable direction. Not made for good looking case mods when mounted to inside of case to show off Piper Rock Leds.
Completely backwards.

2 out of 5 eggsFire Hazard

Pros: Lasted nearly 2 years and went out with a loud bang/pop/fizzle. VERY exciting, to say the least.

Cons: Caught on fire despite the fact that it was never run without being plugged into a UBS system.

1 out of 5 eggsWarning DO NOT BUY!

Pros: It might work.

Cons: Tagan went out of business back in May! Being that my unit was just over a year old (still under ABS's 3 year) I contacted them for an RMA. They stated that they could not help me since Tagan is gone and if I wanted to RMA it, I needed to do it through a company called Topower. When I FINALLY got a hold of Topower, they told me I can't get a warranty replacement because it is past their own 1 year warranty. On top of that, Topower is ONLY doing RMA's for Tagan until December 2009! So if you were to buy one now, you're barely going to get 5 months of warranty! There's more, the only way to try to RMA ANYTHING with this company is to download an RMA *.pdf file and then fill it out and send it via fax and then you need to wait 24 hours for a reply fax (if you even get one)!

Other Thoughts: If you value your warranty at all DO NOT GET THIS! Chances are if you get a bad unit, you are going to end up out of luck like I was! I hate writing negative reviews but, everyone should be aware of this before ordering one of these. My faith of ABS or any of it's “partner” companies is shattered now I lost quite a lot of money for I unit I should have had replaced under warranty. I'm not interested in any more excuses, I got my replacement Antec TP series with a 5 year on it. At least they do their own RMAs and should be around in 5 years to handle them!

1 out of 5 eggsbuyer beware!!

Pros: I originally bought the ABS Tagan ITZ 1100W it is no longer sold on newegg, it ran very good with my rampage formula and q6600 at 3.8ghz with two 4870x2 in crossfire for the longest time

Cons: recently upgraded to a rampage 2 extreme and corei7 920 at 4.0ghz with a pair of gtx295 in sli and the 1100W PSU blew, it litterly blew after 3days with the new build, funny thing was it blew while i was surfing the net never during gaming and bench marking

Other Thoughts: I ordered this ABS BZ 1300W PSU with a 1yr warranty from newegg because everytime i call abs and there is like three numbers, the website list one number and on the negative feedbacks they list another, and one of the their service reps gave me the number to a company called tough power? isnt that thermaltake? well im still waiting on this RMA info from them which i think is a joke, by the way the new PSU is running as we speak im affraid will typing this that it'll go out just because im surfing the net......

5 out of 5 eggsAwesomeness

Pros: The power on this is awesome 1300 watt is just pretty. The size on this is not as big as I thought it would be, My friend has a 1000watt and its so long it sticks out of his case, this one is a nice size about like a 500 watt. The modular cables are really nice and screw on which is nice because I have seen ones that just pop on and they like to fall out.

Cons: the Original price... see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Original price was $500 but I got it on sale for $300 woot!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Looking PSU

Pros: This is THE sexiest PSU EVER!! I was so bent on getting this.

High quality cables, high quality paint and casing, accessories. Very nice unboxing experience. That almost makes up for the price

Works like a PSU, nice modular cables once again. No problems what so ever (yet)

Cons: REALLY expensive for a PSU.
Cost almost as much as my motherboard at 350 and way more than my CPU.

Other Thoughts: I really don't think anyone needs a 1300w PSU. I don't think you can even draw that much power from a traditional outlet.

Did I mention it is very purrty?

2 out of 5 eggsA cautionary tale.

Pros: (First a disclaimer: I bought the 700W model of this PSU, however it is now deactivated and I can no longer post reviews on it.)

This power supply looks great, has great specs on paper, looked wicked in my case, and was functioning great... for 48 hours.

Cons: PSU literally blew up in my new i7 system case. Don't envision a powerful explosion or anything, but my PC shut down suddenly and a very large spark shot out of the back of the PSU, it was extremely visible. Fortunately I was using the PC when it happened, instead of leaving me to wonder why my PC suddenly wouldn't turn on one day. There's also a high pitch squeal that some of these are capable of making.

Other Thoughts: I took a gamble on these PSU's, and perhaps the 1300W is of better build quality, and I'm not exactly saying do not buy it.

I'm just saying, you may be taking a chance. If you look at all the reviews of this, there's a lot of good yes, but there's also the not so good. On all versions of these, the 700, 900, 1100, and 1300.

At least customer service was friendly and easy to deal with.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: $150 off ! i had to snag it while it was at that price. It was the same price as the 1100 watt ABS that i was going to get so i got this one instead. I haven't put it to the test with anything ridiculous yet but i plan on running it with SLI X3 in a couple weeks when i get the money for my core i7 setup.

Cons: none so far, SO MANY CORDS but that's not a bad thing :P Id rather have more than enough than not enough.

Other Thoughts: didn't get my free 4 gig flash drive i was supposed to get but oh well i wouldn't use it and would probably lose it anyways :P
