Experience: 6 Months
Good solid PSU
Lots of connections for PCIe, SATA etc
None so far
Bought this to replace an old Fortron Sparkle PSU and so far it's doing a great job. Have it hooked up to 4 Hard Drives, 1 DVDrw, 1 3.5" card reader, 2 fans, and a crappy 4650 video card which I will be replacing soon. It's a great PSU for budget builds and was recommended to me by one of ncix floor staff.

Price, Connections, Quiet
I bought this PSU to replace the under powered 230W one that came with my HP desktop computer. Why computers even come with such a small PSU nowadays is beyond me. I needed a bigger PSU so I could add components that I bought to upgrade the computer and this one was PERFECT! I bought a Blu Ray Drive and a nice video card and 230W wasn't even close to recommended power for them. It's very nice because it has so many connections, including 2 for the video cards. It's very quiet, and comes with cable ties too. Very easy to install. You can get this PSU at a smoking hot price if you watch for it. Very happy with it so far.

Sleeved cables
Various cable types
Bought this to replace a cheap 300W PSU that came with my computer and so far have had zero problems or noticed any unusual noise. The sleeved cables keep everything tidy and easy to find, and ties coming with the PSU is icing on the cake. Very good PSU for the price for those on a budget.

Affordable, solid, sleeved cables, silent fan.
High pitched coil whine even when turned off.
Overall okay PSU the thing that bothered me was the coil whine that you can't really do anything about. It was $45 dollars on sale and came with zip ties which was a plus.
