APEVIA See-Through ATX-AS500W-BK 500W ATX12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs I'm very suprised 06/17/2014

This review is from: APEVIA See-Through ATX-AS500W-BK 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: I didn't expect alot from this PS and I must admit it has surprised me. Its turned out to be rock solid.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I used this unit to build my stepson a new Haswell machine. Its just a Pentium but with other case lights, a H60 closed loop cooler, two SSD's, one mechanical mass storage drive, a Nvidia 750, two DVD writers and multiple USB devices, this PS is everything I hoped for and more.

The colored fans inside the unit are bright enough for him, and the sound they make are acceptable. It's not modular but it doesn't advertise to be so I don't understand why people complain in their reviews about this. I have been through the waranty process with another Apevia product in the past and for me it was painless and they were more than fair with me. All in all they are a great company to do business with. If I was building another low budget machine that need a little "Bling" I would buy this unit again.

One last note: If you planning on running a 4770K with a GTX 780 then obviously you need more power and more stability. A common mistake novice builders make is skimping on their power supply. In most cases with this hobby you get what you pay for.

Pros: Threw this in a laptop as a replacement and no problems yet. Detection was automatic and read/write speeds are right on with manufacture claims.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I don't see a use for mechanical hard drives in the near future because SSD's are cheaper to manufacture but for now you can't beat the cost.
