Features    [ Edit | History ]

The VP 450 is crafted for just three things: Quality, performance and incredible value. This entry-level solution gives you everything you need in a power supply. No twinkly lights or glittery paint jobs - just a 120 mm fan for effective and quiet cooling, dual +12V rails for amazingly stable power, EuP 2010 compliance, and heavy-duty protection circuitry for peace of mind, no matter how demanding your system. And it comes with all the assurance of Antec's AQ2 Antec Quality 2-year limited warranty. All the features, none of the waste: For builders that are strictly business, the VP 450 is strictly power.

Experience: 5 Years
Few plugs, low wattage for expansions, not efficiency rated
This little PSU has been operating well in my partner's PC for over 5 years and has been a happy member of our working inventory of parts. If you don't need much wattage and need low hardware costs at the risk of higher power costs later, this is a great unit.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
excellent price and quality
hard to beat at this price, great for a modest system build

Experience: 2 Days
 Verified Owner
Solid design for older and newer builds. Lots of cables to tuck away or use.
Lots of cabling to tuck away.
Used Antec before, always overpower to the need. It preserves the electronics a bit better over matching it too closely and burning it out. Good price on sale with a rebate! Nice and quiet, no problems.

Experience: 4 Months

- no sleeves for cable
Can't argue with 40$ psu with an additional 20$ rebate. Good enough for simple builds.

Cheap, Powerful, Reliable
No 8 pin PCI-E, only 6 pin
Great unit for the price (I paid $35), I've bought a few different Antec Basiq models over the years and they're all still running well with no problems. The oldest one is about 4 years. The only downside to this unit is that there is no 8 pin PCI-E.

Experience: 2 Years
- Cheap
- Quiet
- Has good reputation
- Only one 6pin PCI connector. Would of been nice to have 8pin + 6pin.
- Only 4 SATA power connectors
Bought it for a small storage server. Works great for that. Only 4 SATA power and 4 molexes though. You might have to convert  some of the molexes to SATA power.

Experience: 14 Days

Cheap, quiet, Antec
Too many connectors
This is not intended to be a high-end PSU so I'm rating it for its intended role. Ignoring off-brands and no-name options this is the 2nd cheapest PSU available not accounting for the mail-in rebate which makes it the cheapest at $22. For this a 450W Antec PSU.

The motherboard power wires are braided and everything else is corralled with zip ties. Has more than enough connectors - maybe even too many for the kind of system this would be installed in. Wound up cramming 75% of the wires into the 5.25" bay.

This is also the least expensive name brand PSU with the 120mm fan and the included fan is very quiet.

Experience: 6 Weeks

Cables arent sleeved. Doesnt play well with low Haswell power states
Hard to argue with the price for $40. Would have preferred even a cheap sleeving for the wires. Some of the leads arent long enough for large cases.

Price, performance
Problem with new intel Haswell low power state
Overall really good product for the price, got it on sale for 29.99 so no complaints here. The only issue was that it did not like Intel's Haswell new low power state. Turn it off and no more problem.

Made by Antec
Can't go wrong with Antec. First time Buying a Antec Basiq, but a great deal with the Antec P280 case bundle sale. Have purchased 2 other Antec power supplies in past and they are still going. Works great and quieter than expected.
