SeaSonic SS-400ET Bronze 400W ATX12V V2.2/EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good power supply for moderate needs (say, a PC for business applications). Very reasonable price for the capability. I was able to straighten up a client's PC performance (random crashes) by replacing the power supply with the SS-400ET.

Cons: Based on the first success, I ordered a second one, this time for a new build. When I had it all together, it wouldn't boot. First things first - I had to assure power was getting to the motherboard. Tested the Seasonic with a power supply tester - dead! I was unbelieving, but there it was. Newegg was excellent about RMAing a replacement.

Other Thoughts: My first experience with a DOA of any kind. Makes me wonder about the state of QA in the industry. I'll continue with Seasonic because most of my experiences have been good, however.

Thermaltake Commander G42 Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case (CA-1B5-00M1WN-00)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I had been buying a different brand case, which turned out not to be available, so I gave the Thermaltake G-42 a try. I'm glad I did. The build quality is excellent. Case is sturdy, and the doors fit well and are easy to remove and replace. The wiring is good quality, with shrink-wrapped bundles. USB 3.0 connector from the front fit right onto the motherboard header. Plenty of room for future expansion - can hold lots of components such as hard drives.

Cons: Not a con really - I didn't care for the case cover screws. Just a bit difficult to deal with, but they do their job.

Other Thoughts: Glad I ran into this one. It may replace my previous standard for economy cases.

SeaSonic SS-400ET Bronze 400W ATX12V V2.2/EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: After a power surge smoked my low-priced power supply of another brand, I decided I needed to spend a little more money to get a brand I have almost standardized on because of high quality - Seasonic. I was pleased to see a variety of power output models available - all rated highly. I was shooting for 400W, so this filled the bill. I was repairing an old computer, so the mix of Molex and SATA cables came in handy (I had carefully looked at the product picture to assure this availability). Installation was a snap (being OEM, you get a lower price in return for using your old power cord and screws), and the old unit fired right up, stable as a rock (the aging power supply this replaced was causing random reboots and USB port problems).

Cons: None. This unit came up on line routinely, just what you want. Just plenty of stable power.

Other Thoughts: If you are getting mysterious reboots from "random" causes, be sure to think about checking out the power supply. A new one is well worth the investment!
