No complaints here, as this power supply is very quiet.

Even though this is not a mATX PSU it's still slightly smaller than a full size ATX one so it fitted in my HTPC case just fine.

This power supply has a nice design and competes well with supplies that cost a lot more.

Pros: efficient and silent, sleeved cables, and slightly smaller than a full size ATX PSU.
Cons: excessive amount of unnecessary cables and not enough on some.

After having been disappointed by the FSP 450W compact mATX PSU, I got this one based on reading reviews and the fact that its price has dropped below 60 from the usual 80. Even though this is not a mATX PSU it's still slightly smaller than a full size ATX one so it fitted in my HTPC case just fine.

Even though this PSU is not 80+ certified, I found that my Kilo-a-watt actually registered a few watts below when I was using one that's 80+ bronze certified, a pleasant nice surprise.

One nitpick I have with this is the cables. I guess it's because this was designed a few years back maybe?
- I don't understand the need of these PSUs that's below 500W to include TWO GPU power cables. If I was going to run SLI, you'd be damn sure I am going to get a PSU bigger than 500W, and if I have room in my case for two GPUs to run SLI/XFire, I wouldn't need to worry about getting a small size PSU.
- Same thing with the TWO molex cables that has THREE connectors each, and then there's the 3.5" FDD connector (Do people still use that?). These days, it's all SATA and USB for FDD and I have no used for these power cables except maybe for some case fans. That's quite a bunch of cables I have to find room to tuck away. I don't want to cut them immediately just in case I need to return or get warranty service.
- I don't really need two SATA power cables, but that's fine, but why do these only have TWO connectors each, and the distance between the connectors is barely long enough unless you stack your HDDs/DVDs next to each other.

Anyways, I'd give this PSU a 4.

I like the power supply and it is very quiet, but the thick, extra long cables make installation in a smaller case pretty difficult. They must be folded and positioned out of the way of other components. Otherwise, once installed, it works fine.

No complaints here, as this power supply is very quiet. It's also more affordable than other "silent" power supplies on the market. I have a very large and fast computer, and this does the job handily.

I needed a smaller PSU that was also quiet. This one is really the only one on the market like it. It is quiet and efficient. It has been discontinued and replaced with a higher wattage 80plus version so this one is hard to find. (This one is actually efficient enough to qualify for 80plus but was not submitted for testing). Knocking off one star due to the huge amount of stiff sleeved cables. Built a PC using a Lian Li Q18 and the cables fill about half of the case.

I purchased this power supply because it provided enough power, as determined by calculations, and had a reputation for being quiet. To see if those things were true, I tried connecting it to a computer. I had trouble getting the desktop to boot because the wide power cable providing most of the power to the motherboard was not fully plugged in, possibly because the power supply used a detachable set of 4 pins at 1 end. I re-inserted the cable. After a few unrelated issues were resolved, I found that the system only makes noticeable noises when powering on. After that, the computer is effectively silent from a foot away.

This power supply makes almost noise; I have one in an HTPC with a low power processor, and no hard drive or video card, and you still can't hear this thing. I've installed two of these in custom builds, and both are still running without a single hitch (had one for 5 months, another for over 2 years). This power supply is great for space-constrained builds (I've got one in a SilverStone Aluminum/Steel Micro ATX Media Center/HTPC Case ML03B (Black) case), because it has 15mm less depth than a standard atx power supply. For my other build, I have it in a full desktop with a reasonably powerful discrete graphics card and a decent processor, and it handles the load perfectly well. 430W is more than enough for anyone who's not running two high-end video cards in SLI, don't waste your money on capacity that you don't need.
