Pros: Was free with my Logitech mouse purchase.
Cons: Lame. Waste of everything that was used to produce this garbage and send.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price and name. Tried to build a nice machine for around $1k with a monitor, keyboard and mouse and succeeded. Still have room to add a decent video card if needed. So far.. the integrated graphics are working fine. Not a gaming comp but could be if I added a mid range vid card. The PC P&C modular MKIII 400 is a bit better and adds a little extra power. But this Corsair is powering this system quite well! Customer is not a gamer and just wanted a fast comp that will last.
Cons: None really for the price.

Pros: Solid 400+ watts, Modular, 5 year warranty and bronze rated at $60 shipped with $20 rebate and $15 GC to make the total $25. A steal!!
Cons: Seems to be a loose bearing in the fan at start up. But other than that it was a perfect choice to upgrade an older HP machine with a vid card upgrade. Fit perfect and modular cables helped reduce clutter a bit.
Other Thoughts: Bought 3 400 watt PS's the last few months. This PC P&C, a Corsair Builder 430 and an Antec HCG 400. All are perfect for a mid system with a vid card needing a 400 watt power supply. Plenty of power and very stable. This particular PC P&C PS adds 2 extra years warranty, modular design and bronze rating over 80 plus. This PS is the better of the 3 so far. Provides more power because it is more efficient and will save you a few bucks on electricity bills in the long run. Packaging is not over the top like some brands. Seems like PC P&C scimmped on the right areas to help keep the cost down. I'm all for it! Voltage tests are better than most any other PS in this wattage range I have had. The Corsair and Antec are right there as well. If you can get any of these 3 for $30 or less then do not hesitate! It is a steal!! All are great with the PSP&C tops, Antec second and the Corsair a close third. All are worth the $50 range. But all can be had for $30 or less if you are a good shopper!READ FULL REVIEW
