horse power for 10 years

Pros: bought it in October 2008 but used it in 2011 to power 24x7 continuously until this hour today an asus p6t ws workstation mobo with i7 980x in 2011. the system has 6 SCSI drives and 2 SATA drives, and xfx radeon 6770 running continously.
while 4 EVGA PSUs 850W already failed or are doomed to capacitor drainage over weeks of unoperation, while this RP500 500W still running.

Cons: not in production anymore!

Other Thoughts: paid $150 for EVGA SuperNOVA 850 P2 220-P2-0850-X1 that I tossed in the garbage, while I paid $45 for this Rosewill RP500 500W that is still running for 10 years, initially powering an i7 940 back in day, and now powering i7 980x.
PSUs are simple to design and build, but it is unfortunate to see that engineering has been replaced with mushy marketing soft people who wanted to remaster the EVGA PSUs and move from quality to marketing, labeling the EVGA sucker "SuperNOVA" and overcharging for its look (that end up in the garbage because their customer service will do nothing but replace the PSU with another similar dud that you will end up tossing out of the window).

No Failures

Pros: Proven to be a reliable unit with low failure rate. Single CPU/GPU type unit.

Cons: None for a unit in this specific class. Mid/low range unit.

Other Thoughts: I've had this psu through 3 builds since 2008 without issues. I still keep it around for a test unit.

5/ 5

Pros: The power supply has a nice assortment of connectors, including many Molex, floppy and SATA power connectors. The ATX power is wrapped, making it easier to feed without snagging. The cables are black, and the PS included a number of black zip ties to help with cable management. The lit fan really lights up the rear of the case, and so far the whole thing seems to run pretty cool.

Cons: I haven't run into any snags, yet. I tied up all of the surplus power feeds for possible later use and the machine is running well.

Other Thoughts: The price is a little on the high side of my budget for a power supply, but this one is very nice and I don't regret the expenditure. I'm particularly happy about the wide variety and large quantity of connectors, since it gives me the flexibility I want with the large case in which I installed it.

Decent for mid-budget build

Pros: 26 Amps on a single +12 Volt rail is more than adequate to power a single video card such as Nvidia GTS 250, Ati HD 4850 or lower.
Lots of connectors, includes one 6 pin PCI express connector
Switch that lets you select 115V or 230 V, useful if you want to take your computer overseas.
Quiet fan.

Cons: Forget about SLI or Crossfire, insufficient to power more than one video card
If you're going to shell out the $$$ for anything better than the GTS 250 or HD 4850, prepare to spend more for a beefier power supply cause I wouldn't take my chances with this one...
If you don't plan on installing any high drain devices (e.g. video cards), there's cheaper power supplies out there that will be enough for your system

Other Thoughts: Came in an attractive box, even had that nice new electronics smell, mmm.... you can smell the benzene.
Purchased this because for the price, it delivers a good amount of power on a single +12V rail, more than enough for my system:
AMD Phenom X2 550 Black
Biostar TA790GXB A2+ mobo
Zalman CNPS 9900 CPU fan
Kingston HyperX 4 GB DDR2 1066 memory
2x Western Digital 750 GB Green HD
EVGA GTS 250 1 GB Vid card
Samsung CD-R/W DVD ROM
