5 out of 5 eggsRebate...... What rebate ?

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great Power supply . Super quiet , plenty of power for my gadgets.New Egg got it to me quick and hassle free.

Cons: I read all the reveiws about how difficult the rebate process was , so i was extremely carefull to make sure i sent everything that was required. and today i got the rebate confirmation that was declined . i couldn't beleive it.It said i didn't include my receipt. It seems like they just hope you give up so they don't have to send the rebate ..... not a very good way to do buisness if you ask me ,thermaltake has very good products it's too bad that this kind of stuff happens.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent PSU

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I have had 7 of these of the 7 i have lost 0 of them, all are still in service

Cons: long cables and somewhat stiff bending radius's would be nice if they switched over to flat ribbons rather then bunched cables and perhaps release it in a short cable length for like itx platforms

2 out of 5 eggsRebate Resolved?

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Reasonably good PSU at a good price

Cons: Rebate process

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my previous review. I sent an email directly to Thermaltake, who responded almost immediately promising to push my rebate through and review their rebate
process / provider. My faith in Thermaltake is mostly restored

Too bad I have already spent more than $10 of my time trading emails with the geniuses they employ in their rebate center.

BTW NewEgg did their usual awesome job getting the PSU to me quick and free.

1 out of 5 eggsRebate Scam

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: PSU is as advertised

Cons: I precisely followed their unnecessarily complex rebate process for a whopping $10. After 30+ days, the rebate was denied for non-receipt of the invoice even though their scanned documents clearly show that they received a hard copy of the invoice.

I have purchased a bunch of stuff from Thermaltake over 20+ years. They just lost a long time customer because I no longer trust them.

Other Thoughts: Thermaltake...Fire your rebate staff / provider and change your rebate process, or stop offering rebates altogether.

4 eggs for a reasonably good power supply at a good price. -5 eggs for participating in a rebate process that is clearly designed to prevent customers from actually getting the rebate they earned.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
We at Thermaltake apologize about the negative experience you have had with the rebate process. The rebate is handled by a 3rd party rebate center and we will review their performance regarding Thermaltake rebates. If there are any issues with the rebate process or the rebate center, please call Customer Service.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU for the Price

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Price
550 Watts
Bronze Certified
Decent amount of cables for all the needs of a 550 watt computer
Nice Sleeving

Cons: Cables are very stiff and hard to route
Almost to many extra Sata cables (For a normall 550 Watt computer needs)
Short cables, only use with small machines or you will end up with a problem (Not a Con for me, just more of a warning to users)

Other Thoughts: This is an update to having a DOA unit. I got this one and it worked flawlessly after newegg returned and re-shipped me a working one. Its a good PSU especially when you consider the price and it does all I need and more for this small machine for a friend.
My only concerns were with the Cables themselves attached to the PSU. They were very stiff which makes routing them anywhere a chore and the cables were pretty short. Now I used this in a MITX build which the short cables came in handy because space is need for me in a machine like this.

I recommend this PSU for people on a budget building small machines!

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: The overall quality of the supply itself and the connectors is better than I was expecting and it is surprisingly quiet without getting very warm at all. There aren't any ridiculous logos or color schemes that stick out in a windowed case, and the connectors are all fairly high quality, which is nice. I performed a test and was able to get the full rated wattage and sustain it for 10 minutes before I stopped the load.

Cons: Wire quality. The wires are "ribbon" style and VERY stiff and seem to want to stay in their original shape from the box which made wire management a nightmare. The PCI-E connectors are bright red which are highly visible from the outside of my case and it is the only red thing in the entire computer.

Other Thoughts: If you have a smaller case or bad wire management I would not get this power supply. The bundle of wires is simply too large and too hard to manage.

5 out of 5 eggsThermaltake power supply works just fine.

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: - It's got a 4+4 pin connector for the CPU power.
- Cables are flat, and plenty long enough for my 19.5" x 8" x 19.7" case.

Cons: - Cables can be a little hard to bend around.

Other Thoughts: Great power supply. It's got plenty of PCI-E connectors, and it's got plenty of SATA-power cables.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat power supply

This review is from: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This is a great power supply from Thermaltake. I love the flat cables.It makes it a lot easier when doing my cable management. This also is a great choice if the case that you're using doesn't have cable management options behind the motherboard. It gives you plenty of power for basic builds or something a little more robust. Plenty of power connectors for hardware.

Cons: No cons in my opinion

Other Thoughts: I use the term "robust" loosely. It has plenty of juice for additional case fans and CPU coolers. It wouldn't really run larger GPU's but it would run something simple if you just needed a second monitor for a larger viewing landscape.
