hahahaha garbage

Pros: - hahaha not a single one

Cons: the fan is too big for its housing, so it scrapes against the inside and makes an awful sound, when it actually spins. It's about a 50/50 chance the fan can overcome friction and make eardrums bleed. I saved a video for my own sad humor of how awful it sounds to remind myself how bad a piece of hardware can be.

Other Thoughts: would not recommend this brand to anyone ever, this is hands down the worst defect I've received from newegg

Died after 1.3 years

Pros: it's a 2U PSU at a fairly cheap price

Cons: Died after 1.3 years
Too deep for a 500W PSU. I have 800W PSU in 2U form factor that are smaller and shallower than this PSU.

died

Pros: Correct size? Fairly quite

Cons: Died after 1.4 years always on, unfortunately that's not that great of a record. I still have 2U PSU's running since '08

Other Thoughts: For the price/lifetime defiantly not a good investment.

Failed!

Pros: Good when it worked.

Cons: Failed with only 500 hours of uptime!

Other Thoughts: I was using this as a router for about half a month before I moved. One day it would not power up, I thought it was the motherboard or the RAM. I finally got around to testing the system and it looks like the PSU went. And now that I'm out of warranty I'm stuck with a $120 brick. Terrible.

surprised

Pros: still running strong after a year. Have never had a problem with it.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I have been buying Athena for a while now. I completely forgot about this iStar. I was actually trying to figure out which Athena I put in a server.....(as we are upgrading again....and need some new machines) only to find out that the server which has given us the least problems.....is powered by a PSU I must have grabbed on a whim (or there was an availability problem). Either way, this PSU has been powered down a total of maybe 20 hrs since feb of 2011, and it doesn't seem to mind. At one point it was pushing 11TB of drives.

PSU Failure

Pros: Seemed to work well, until it stopped working well...

Cons: PSU failed after five months of service. May have claimed the life of an innocent SSD drive on the way. Last claim is yet to be confirmed...

Find Something Else

Pros: They are stable as a rock...until they die.

Cons: I've had 6 of these iStarUSA power supplies over the past 3 years, of which only 2 remain. They work great, then they die hard.

Other Thoughts: I started replacing them with ITX power supplies (which also fit it my 2U cases); they sad part is that they ITX supplies last longer.

steady, quiet unit

Pros: Very quiet, stable power with good holdup times

Cons: Could use a 2nd fan to help move air

Other Thoughts: I have a few 3U systems on my home office network and need stable, quiet power supplies. I use the 500W unit to run a basic file server and just ordered another to run a a smaller VMware box. They are higher quality than they were a couple of years ago.
