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 installed a blu-ray burner into one of my desktop/server machines, and unfortunately if I slid it all the way back into the drive bay it would have hit the somewhat oversized existing power supply. So, I did some research and found this one, which is an ATX form factor and at 5" was not as deep as the previous power supply. Now my blu-ray drive fits perfectly. This power supply also has an abundance of connectors, so even with two hard drives, a DVD player/burner, a blu-ray player/burner, two exhaust fans, and a media card adapter in a drive bay, I still have open power connections.

Good, quiet power supply at a reasonable price.

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.

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 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.

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.
