Great, reliable product

Pros: -Rebate arrived as promised. Can easily apply for the rebate online.
-Affordable. With rebate, I got this PSU for under $20 on Black Friday.
-Plenty of cables for anything you might need to connect.

Cons: -No cons. I wish it was modular, but then I would need to look for a different, more expensive product. This is an affordable non-modular PSU that gets the job done.

Overall Review: -I would recommend this product to anyone.
-I would buy this again for a second PC if I could get it at the same price I did after rebate.
-I would not change anything. I would just wish for a bigger rebate to make this even more of a steal.

Should be plenty for even a power hungry build (destroyed after 600 hours, maybe 100 hours under gaming load)

Pros: See cons first
Cheap. Sleaves over the mustard cables. Good cable length. 2 GPU 8 pins. Should have plenty of power for most builds. Even when electric flickers a ton (ice storm), and goes out, it runs my build for at least another 3 seconds after the electric goes out.

Its just the right length of cables for my build, and its very very quiet. I can't hear it unless I put my head in the case and listen for it, and I have water cooling on my CPU.

Ran Fx-8350 processor (125W TDP), R9-270 (150W TDP), and while bench-marking, it pulls around half what this power supply SHOULD do.

Its ok for the price ($30) after rebate.

Cons: Died in less than 2 years. Never went beyond its continuous power rating. 5 year warranty, but its going to cost as much as another PSU just to send it back. Its actually cheaper to buy a good 1000w PSU since that should last at least 5 years (or just get another brand). I think the MTBF (mean time before failure) rating is a joke, I ran maybe 800 hours and it died.

Wouldn't run duel GPU unless your CPU is sub 90w. The specs say it should be fine, but it was not a happy camper playing Crysis 3 with no overclocks and single GPU... It did run fine, but it degraded quickly to the point I can't run 3w (single cell Lipo charger at 1 amp) before the 12v drops below 10v and can't even run a charger...

Overall Review: If your not running Titans in SLI, your probably good with a 500w power supply, but I wouldn't choose this one. For budget builds, the cx-430 is a better choice. Just make sure it has all the connectors you need (as with any power supply).

Died within warranty period

Pros: Worked really well until it died about 18 months after installation. This was still within the warranty period and thermaltake customer service did send me a replacement unit.

Cons: I had to pay out of pocket to ship it back to thermal take to get my replacement, I think it was like $7. Also, the whole process was pretty slow: I had to write up a form submission with every detail of the unit, then I had to wait several days for them to issue an RMA, then I had to box it and ship it myself, then I had to wait a few weeks for them to verify the unit was really dead, THEN they sent me a replacement. The whole process took like 4 weeks.

Obviously I'm not going to look at a dead PC for 4 weeks so the day that I realized it died I bought a new power supply from a retailer that delivers ON SUNDAYS FOR FREE and had it up and running like 30 hours after placing my order :D So the replacement PSU is now an on-hand backup.

Reliable and gaming ready

Pros: Everything it says it will do, it does, well!

Cons: Oh my are a couple of these cables stiff and long - used in a smaller case like m-ITX, this can be a pain.

Overall Review: For a little more there are modular and semi-modular versions of this that work better in small boxes, but I've recommended or used these several times and never had a problem!

Beyond Garbage

Pros: -Nothing special

Cons: -I began to notice that occasionally when watching videos and playing games my whole screen would freeze and there would be a loud stuttering audio output. This problem disappeared when I replaced the thermaltake PSU with a EVGA G2 PSU. I suspect some sort of voltage ripple was getting pass the psu which would result in the resulting audio stutter.
-I emailed Thermaltake customer service on June 20th and still haven't a response (August 3rd.)

Decent Power Supply, but don't expect a rebate.

Pros: The power supply is decent and works.

Cons: When I purchased the power supply, it had a $25.00 mail in rebate offer and I bit. Little did I know, there are major issues receiving the rebate. Performing a Google search for Thermaltake rebate revealed the truth, most people called it a scam and did not receive their rebate. Had I had known this, I would not have purchased it.
