Experience: 32 Days
none (so far)
This Power supply looks to be a great buy if you can get it on sale plus with the OCZ Warranty then another great reason to choose this. Compared both this and my friends Seagate PS priced the same with minimal diff. Great buy and look to purchase OCZ again.

Great bang for buck
none yet!
Only cost me ~ 35 after rebate (which i have yet to receive, but im sure its on the way)
Installs easy, straight forward running.
Its got a blue led in the power button to indicate if its powered or not, which really comes in handy especially behind a desk with little / no light!

Experience: 1 Years
-Nice plain black housing with no annoying LEDs
None for the price
I have to agree with superninja that more options with cables would be great. Having said that, its quiet and reliable and I just installed it and forgot about it: for the price this PSU does everything a power supply is supposed to do.

Highly recommended

Experience: 1 Years
Solid, Cool, efficient
not modular, audible when under heavy load
I have the 600W version (OCZ600SXS). So far no problems, when it's on sale, it's a great value. Very solid, efficient and silent. It can handle most low- to mid-range systems. I wish it was modular though, and it doesn't really compare to some of the higher end stuff, but for the price it's a good value and you won't be displeased.

Good value when on S/S
Sleeve cables
Quiet fan
Power switch lights on
Comes with PSU cable
Short cable lengths for most bottom mounted psu in mid tower and larger
I used the 400w/500w/600w stealthxstream psu which are good value when on sale but wouldn't put these past or above the same wattage of the better rated brands out there. It's a non issue for me but I found among the three wattage models that the on/off rocker switch at the back of the 500w lights up and the other two models don't and the fan sound and feels to spin a little faster (hand behind grille) than the other two models. The cable lengths are a bit too short to run behind the motherboard when positioned in a bottom mount case (check OCZ website for cable lengths).

Cheap, quiet.
Not enough SATA connectors. Cables not fast enough.
Got another one for a friend on a sale for relatively cheap recently. I know that OCZ is not the best brand for a PS, but mine had powered my server for 1 year consecutively just fine.

Experience: 45 Days
Works well, good airflow and fan
only mid-length cables, big cases beware
Good value not at full price. Casual gamers or more than average users should be satisfied with this PSU to replace the generic one. I bought this 500W to make sure my video card had enough power to work with though it wasn't enough to also charge my PS3 controller, oh well. The OCZ rebate was easy for me, some on the forums did not think so however.

Very Quiet, nice colour, good notifycation light on the switch, quite powerful, and pretty good price too!
A bit hard to install, but that may have been my case.
Good PS, it fits very well with the colour of my case and is visually appealing and quiet. I have no issue with it. I would buy it again and I would certainly recommend it to other people.

decent cable length
not very quiet
not modular
I got this PSU on sale for $16, and for this price, I like it. However, I would NOT pay full price for this. It is sleeved, but the cables are too short to be able to do any nice cable management. In conclusion, it does its job or being a cheap power supply for a low standard gaming rig or less.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
not much
Bought this PSU to use as a spare and have used it for client computers that have had their cheap generic psu's go on them. This make for a great upgrade to any cheap computer that came with a general generic PSU.

To me I consider this psu a Mid range psu in terms of Quality.
