Failed after 1 year 09/16/2009
This review is from: FSP Group FSP300-60GLS-MJR 300W Micro ATX 80 PLUS Certified Power Supply
When it worked, it was great: steady and quiet, and it was one of the reasons I bought a Mt Jade case.
FSP is one of the brands I turned to after Antec PSUs went through that rough spot a number of years back, and I had been happy with them up til now.
After a year and a week of (nearly continuous) operation, I walked out of the office one day and (judging from logs) the Power Supply simply failed 5 minutes after I closed my door.
It was not under any special load, nor was there any peculiar conditions that day. It simply refused to power-up any longer, but at least it appears that it did not damage any other components.
I don't expect any component to last forever, but 1 year and 1 week is weak.
I've had power supplies fail spectacularly in the past, so I'm very careful about which ones I choose nowadays. This is the first PSU failure I've had to deal with in 5 years.
