I wanted to like this PSU ...
Pros: Had some favorable internet reviews which led me to try the BFG MX550 out. BFG Customer Service was responsive to my calls.
Cons: First unit received died Two Minutes after installation. Called BFG Customer Service and described the problem and they said to RMA. Great turnaround by Newegg, received the second PSU within one week after shipping back the original. The second unit had excessories that were not with the original unit (velcro straps & tie wraps, hmmm was the original an RMA?) but when I took it out of the box and it's bubble wrap bag, two screws fell out. Re installed the screws and installed into a new build and ..... Nothing! Customer Service at BFG said to RMA again, but this time I went for a Refund and a different brand of PSU. Again Great Service from Newegg, Refund has been received and a new Working 550W PSU from __Z has been installed and is running great.
Overall Review: Like the title says, I wanted to like this PSU, but after being burned with two DOA's in a row, I went with another brand. However, even with the problems, I have to say Thank You Newegg for your Great Customer Service and fast turnaround on the RMA's and Refund!
