Great cheap powersupply.
Nothing for the price.
Picked up this power supply to test all the old PC parts I had lying around to see if they still worked or not. Cheap PSU and it worked fine.

Experience: 4 Months
 Verified Owner
Very good power supply for its price (On special)
Nothing to complain except the PSU didn't fit my case, had to remove the sticker on the side because it's very thick
Overall very nice PSU except it's not modular

Experience: 3 Months

Looks good, quiet and provides clean power
A little expensive
I usually buy these for people who have generic PSUs and need a more stable power supply. They always work like charms and look great too.

Capable PSU, cheap
efficiency is low
Picked up one of these for a budget workstation build. I've always stuck to corsair for PSUs and have never had a problem.

Hasnt failed on me yet.
Makes a REALLY REALLY annoying screeching on all three I have purchased, one was especially bad.
Bought three of these for three identical builds all three screeched, one of them was especially bad and makes a really loud noise.

compared to my antec 620w hc gamer its a world of difference in sound.

But it works... sooo cant complain too much.

Good power supply, quiet and reliable
nothing really
Have been using these power supplies for my build for a while now. Great price and quality, can't go wrong with it!

Experience: 2 Months

Again I have used a few of them and all still work great. I know the Builder Series as not same quality as their top ends but I would still pick them over the CoolerMaster, ultra and so on.

These are meant for lower budget PC's and they are great in that category. I have used a couple of them with GTX 550 Ti's with out issue.

Experience: 4 Months
Solid and stable
None at all
Is an awesome lower end but still good quality psu. Used it on a build for family and its awesome, would for sure buy again. The 430 is also very good. Cant go wrong!
