Pros:

Seasonic is the company that makes most of the better quality power supplies on the market, even if they are not under their name so it should make sense to go straight to the source (at least I think so). That said, I have been using Seasonic power supplies for a little over a year now since switching from another popular brand and I have been nothing but pleased. This model has adequate power output to cover a wide variety of usage, which is why I use this model so frequently at work and at home. I have installed them into cheesy little compaq computers and in 24/7 always online DVR's and so far they have performed perfectly.

Cons:

I can't really think of any real cons for this thing....I guess the only "con" would be the cables. They look/feel a little "basic" or cheap if you will, compared to some other lower end modular cables. Let it be known though that I use these in lower end systems where I really don't care about aesthetics to begin with. Might be something to think about if you do though.

Other Thoughts:

I installed this particular one that I bought on my own account in my personal pfsense box. The cheap no-name one that was installed in the old p4 box finally bit the dust after who knows how many years of service. While it lasted quite some time, it certainly used its fair share of wasted power in its lifetime because that thing would put out some heat. It ran so hot that it put out more heat than the Pentium 4 @ 3.8 GHZ that it was powering (if you remember the old netburst cpu's from Intel you know the kind of hot im talking about). After putting this Seasonic unit in, I can definitely tell the difference in the heat load on the room. It is noticeably cooler which can only be a plus since its that much less that I have to cool back down (live in Fl so heat is useless here :P). So if you need a good all around basic psu that is efficient, cool, and backed by a reputable name then this unit just might be what you are looking for.
