Experience: 2 Years


well built budget power supply, 80plus cert, quiet, well regulated all rounder
great PS for budget-mid lvl gaming rig, could handle any of the single core vid cards without issue with plenty of headroom to spare. have had this PS in use under two computers over the years and has provided reliable effortless service in both. would recommend whenever it's on sale.

Experience: 1 Years


Great deal when on sale $50
2xPCI connectors
Good for a budget build with 1 VGA
80 plus
Cool & quiet
I've had this PS for about a year now and no problems whatsoever. There are 4 HDD, 1 DVD and a VGA hooked up to this unit and it powers them without issues.

Experience: 1 Months


None so far
Spotted my friend on this PSU, seems to be working as advertised. Wasn't too expensive for a reliable 500watt PSU. I'd recommend it for a single card system on a budget.

Experience: 3 Months


very efficient
very quiet
plenty of connections
stable currents
seems to gets pretty hot due to lack of larger cooling fan
it's not black or red, or blue(well, I want some more color beside grey)
it's a very good power supply, for 500W, this thing will meet most demand on an avg PC. I didn't like the choice of color for it, it's grey, would had preferred black or red or blue, or just anything but grey. It's relatively quiet, as well as having all the necessary connections.

only real downside is the heat, it does get pretty warm, it's probably due to the lack of a better fan.

Experience: 3 Months


500W 80+ cert.
Plain looking, Price is a bit high.
Decent power supply. I also have the EA380 version which is a solid unit as well. My only complaint would be the higher then normal price tag. But like the saying goes, you get what you pay for!

Experience: 2 Months


High Quality, efficiency.
This is a very solid product. Check out the efficiency specs. This will run cool and provide excellent power to your valuable components. Should be enough power for most budget gaming systems. Check the specs.

Low cost when on sale, save energy
Too costly without discount
Well I bet this is the same thing as the power supply come with Antec sonata 3. The case itself with PSU is like 80 something when on sale. This PSU is like 60 on sale.. Does that mean the case alone is like 20? Function wise is good, nothing to complain. However, the price could be a bit lower. You can find cheaper 500w PSU if you really wants a budget build.

Experience: 2 Months


Stable ps. good for simple gaming rig
doesnt take much load
satisfied with this ps. Only thing is if your thinking to add 3 hd or more with some fans.. this is not made for you.Mine warranted after 2 months

Experience: 3 Months


powerfull and quiet
80mm fan
Installed inside a nine hundred for a home server purpose and it has been running 24/24 since 3 month without any issue.Has PFC feature with great power factor. Has a lot of connectors wich is usefull.Antec have had quality power supplies for years and i never been disapointed with their products

Experience: 21 Days


-Very efficient
-3 year warranty
I bought this because I want to make computer as energy efficient as possible since I run FAH 24/7. This PSU did not disappoint! The power consumption of my computer at full load went from 165w to 125w which is a reduction of more than 24%! My old power supply was an old ATX Antec 300W PSU. The three year warranty doesn't hurt either. Highly recommended PSU.

Comment: So there we have it. The Antec EarthWatts EA-500 500W power supply doesn't put out as much power as a lot of the power supplies we've been seeing lately, but it does put out enough for any one video card no matter how high end, and I would venture to say that it could easily support a pair of Nvidi
Posted by: Killy @03/21/08
Comment: The EarthWatts looks to be good value for budget-minded environmentalists, especially since its power delivery is solid.
Posted by: Al_D @03/02/08
Comment: Antec EarthWatts 500 W provides one of the best cost/benefit ratios for the average user: it is a relatively cheap 500 W power supply that can deliver up to 577 W
Posted by: Al_D @03/02/08
Comment: The EarthWatts 500W is an excellent power supply unit which combines efficiency, performance, and is almost inaudible despite the single 80mm fan.

Comment: Antec's unassuming EarthWatts 500 hides a surprise of astounding load stability and efficiency at a reasonable cost.
