2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cheap. you can throw it a mile and it wont break.

Cons: 22a on the 12v rail? More like 12a. something low. Destroyed an old 6800 with it. Dont plan on using it for anything more than your grandmas computer (i have mine in a stripped down media server)

Other Thoughts: Its power. its not much power. Its theoretically capable of 480W... but most of the "available" wattage is on the 5v rail. Dont expect this to work for "high end" graphics card from any generation. Mine is going on 3 years old, i still use it as workbench supply. Even after connecting 12v to ground repeatedly (accidently of course), it still works

1 out of 5 eggsRIP : POWMAX

Pros: You can throw this thing a mile ; it weights like an ounce. 22v on the 12v rail helped speed up my Laing DDC2 Water cooling pump.

Cons: I cant finish this review becuase the PSU popped while typing the PROs

1 out of 5 eggsI think it might have turned the fans before dying...

Pros: Well, If you're honestly putting one of these into a machine then you must not care about that machine much, therefore when it blows and fries your motherboard you're probably not losing anything important. That's almost a pro...

Cons: I put one of these into a computer that was by no means power-intensive. When I hit the power switch, the 1 case turned about half a time around and this thing never did anything after. I though I might have had the voltage switch on 230v by mistake, but sure enough upon checking this thing had actually died after less than one and a half seconds of use.

Other Thoughts: "Don't buy into the hype about expensive power supplies?" I had a PSU from another company in my main computer that only cost about 3 times what this one did and it ran great for over a year, only dying after being hit by a power surge, which it saved the rest of the comp from. Why would I pay $xx for this and a UPS as the previous reviewer suggests when I can just pay $30-$40 for a reliable PSU in the first place, saving money, space, and actually having it work.

1 out of 5 eggsrock or this?

Pros: The only good thing about ANY POWMAX power supply is, they can be used in place of a rock as a paperweight.

Cons: their power supplies always go BOOM and usually take some other equipment with them when they go boom. Their tech support people are rude.

Other Thoughts: Don't do this to yourself. Even if you hate yourself, dont buy one ofthese. they will work fine for a short period of time and then short out and damage motherboards, hard drives, ram, cpus.

4 out of 5 eggsPower is power!

Pros: Good cabling, quality build and it does exactly what it advertises, for much less then competing brands. A wide variaty of connectors have allowed me to keep this through a full upgrade cycle.

Cons: Coloring leaves something to be desired, especially on an all black case like the P180B. But this is a minor gripe, since most people don't see their PSU much anyway.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy into the hype about expensive power supplies. If you're looking for reliability then you're much better off spending less on your PSU and a little more on a UPS. With a very expensive power supply what you're essentially getting is a very expensive power-smoother. A cheaper PSU has fewer capacitors and therefore little tolerance for dips in the line voltage. But if you get a quality $60 UPS then your PSU you'll have the same stability that an much more expensive PSU could offer, and an extra five minutes of run time in the event of a power failure! Not a hard choice if you ask me.
