Summary I bought that PSU and I tought it was a good one. But after 3 months, he died while I was playing and my video card (Nvidia GTS 250) died because of this PSU. Never buy from OCZ again. Worst experience ever. 3 stars because with worked well the first months.
Cons kept on making this annoying reptitive ding ding ding sound against its own metal casing.
Summary I picked this up on sale for my first computer build project. it was inexpensive (something like 60 bucks from ncix after MIR) and had 1000W (bigger the better?). anyways i got it working but it would fight me by turning off at least opportune moments (middle of lab reports or matlab assignments or right before save points).
all in all it did last me 8 months but is that what we are supposed to expect for refurb products? i know shouldnt blame ncix but man this OCZ PSU was a piece of junk when it came to reliability. No thanks for selling it to your customers.
Cons $40 I should have put into a proper PSU gone as mine just failed but seems to be expected from OCZ PSU and being refurb so I can't complain on that front
Summary As many have posted this is a pretty unreliable PSU and seems a lot fo feedback is steer clear of OCZ PSU's. Won't be buying OCZ PSU this time. Would probably rate it more like 2 stars if I could find my order ID
Cons Doesn't last very long, break down seems inevitable.
Summary Both power supplies broke on me within two months. I got them pretty cheap with a rebate. Not even worth the cost or hassles of shipping out for warranty, have heard the replacement last just as long. Will never buy another OCZ power supply or any other OCZ product again. Very disappointed about these power supplies.
Summary Picked up two of these units at the same time, one is still working great and the other packed it in after about 6 weeks. Can't really complain with a price like that.. UPDATE: Second one packed it in the same way at about 4 months

the two units I ordered both died. OCZ replaced the first one with a new OCZ 1000 ZX a much nicer power supply. the second has just been sent out on RMA. I would definitely buy again based on the great warranty replacement..

Pros Works well, remains quiet (can't hear it over haf 932 case fans, which are not loud), support for 2-4 video cards (depending on plugs required).
Cons Not modular
Summary Paid $60 for this psu, have had zero issues with it. My stepfather, and gaming buddy all run it as well. It was not my first choice but I could not pass up the price, will be going with XFX when I rebuild next time. PSU runs entire build flawlessly, no issues.
Build is: HAF 932 Phenom X2 555 (Third core unlocked, and overclocked to 4.0Ghz) M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 8Gb's ddr3 ATI Radeon HD5850 (overclocked to 950/1250) 3x 3.5" HDD 1x 2.5" SSD Xonar DG Visiontek 2100 KillerNIC Corsair H70 HP DVD
Whatever the initial longevity problem was with these power supplies (they usually failed gracefully but in a very short time), I'm sure it has been resolved in these refurbs. As you can see from this review, their operating performance is stellar.
