Summary I am using this in my media file server. It fits in my mini-ITX case, but the cables are a bit long to my liking. But other than that, it works very well, very quiet fan and I have no real complaints about it. Using it to power 4xWD 2TB Greens, a 2.5" WD Black, and CPU/Mobo/Ram.
Pros Very stable voltage for the first 2 years, silent enough(for me anyway).
Cons Voltage started to fluctuate at the 3rd year, but that might be related to my crappy motherboard.
Summary Nice Power supply for the price if you dont need anything more. The power supply did lived through a few thunderstorm and repetitive power failure. My computer as been working 24/7 for almost 2 full years so i would say this is a good buy.
