1 out of 5 eggs Power supply over powers components and mobo connections 03/19/2016

This review is from: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GS 220-GS-0650-V1 80+ GOLD 650W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: Full modular, 80 + gold

Cons: Destroyed several components (SSD, HHD, Video Cards, mother board video slots, RAM slots, USB, and keyboard and mouse connectors. I purchased two of these power supplies to update two working computers in order to replace Video Cards with a later, better card(s).

Other Thoughts: I ran initial test on both power supplies and they tested good. Installed one in one of the computers I was upgrading and found that the computer would not longer post. Tried the second in a known good computer same results. Trouble shooting found some components no longer working as well as some connections on the mother boards. Broke down both computers and used old power supply to trouble shoot the components as well as both mother boards. Found the results in Cons box. Contacted Newegg about the 2 Power Supplies. In less than 5 minutes RMA was approved for refund. Shipping label was sent and I returned the power supplies. I do not know if I received a "bad" batch or more of these are "bad". My rating is strictly my experience with these power supplies and I do not speak for all of these power supplies.

WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: WD Black is an excellent Hard Drive. This replaces an WD 500 MB that was "killed" by a new power supply, this drive lasted 10 years before it was "killed". Yes, 10 years of good service with daily use.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: The Packaging was above that expected. A formed plastic air bubble pocket surrounds the drive with a very tight fit, plus the drive is then placed in a separate box. Not way to damage the drive without destroying the shipment. Good on you, Newegg.
