There's really not much else to say. It has the connectors I need and well, the power supply works! What many users want to know is is the thing quiet enough. I can assure you that this unit is pretty much dead silent when in operation. In fact, most power supplies I've come across these days are very quiet as well so you really don't have to worry too much about this issue.
Many experienced PC builders can assure you that you should never, ever skimp on your power supply unit. It is one of the main component that actually gives all your hardware power and so a poorly made power supply can actually increase the chances of it ruining your computer. Although I do admit that I rarely see this, do you really want to take the chance? You could in reality save $10-$15 dollars and get a cheaper power supply but you also should understand the risk of doing so. I believe this Antec power supply is a perfect balance between it being cheap and yet still trustworthy enough for me to put in my build.
Using the sound meter app on my Android phone, I tested ambient noise levels prior to, and immediately following boot up of this system. The difference was negligible at best, and can be accounted for by the CPU fan itself. The system instability and video artifacts appear to be a thing of the past now...
I have 2 more boxes I use in a cluster for recording work, and they too are in those cheap cases, looks like Amazon will be gettign an order for 2 more of these shortly!
It will work reliably in a build with multiple hard drives and even a lower end or older GPU. The power supply isn't modular so the cable management can be aided by zip ties or velcro straps that you can reuse. Don't look at a non-modular power supply if you are interested in better cable management.
Update: A couple of weeks ago I updated my graphics card to a XFX Radeon HD 6770 which requires a minimum of 450W and I am glad to say that this power supply has still not failed me once. I am so happy with this purchase.
So it is nice to see more items like this becoming available, offering solid and reliable performance at a price not much higher than most "no-name" power supplies. I will only buy a few brands of PSU, and have yet to need to replace one prematurely. It is well worth an extra $20 to get a good PSU, but no need to break the bank with units like this available.
