Pros:

Plenty of power for future upgrading; extremely efficient; very quiet

Cons:

wish it was modular, but hey I had an Ultra X-Connect PSU a few years ago when they invented the concept, and the cables were bulky as all get-out, and the Ultra PSU blew up in less than a year.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this to upgrade an Antec 430-watt 80+ PSU also from the Earthwatts line. I have an E8400 @ 3.3 GHZ, 3 GB of DDR2, a DVD burner, seven or eight USB devices, and a 9800GTX+. The 430-watt was fine for that, but I have a GTX 275 coming in a few days and even the online PSU calculator (which is normally more accurate and forgiving than manufacturer's recommendations) said that I would be pushing it with that card added to my rig. Besides, I am building a desktop for my son, and now I can give him my old Antec 430-watt and not worry about having to buy a case with a built-in PSU (those are usually of very dubious quality).

Like my previous Antec Earthwatts PSU, this is very quiet and- judging by my old 430-watt- I expect to have absolutely no trouble whatsoever.
