Rated 4 out of 5 by jewelie Good PSU but description wrong (NOT ErP compliant)
+ Voltages are well behaved, adequately accurate and stable.
+ Looks and feels relatively well made.
+ Decent guarantee from a decent manufacturer.
- Some odd gluey gunk on some of the connectors, just cosmetic though.
- Description is incorrect, this is NOT an ErP compliant PSU. The ErP standard requires devices to use no more than 1W when in standby; an ErP compliant PSU and MB can be configured not to leave the USB sockets powered on when the device is off/shutdown. This isn't possible with this PSU and without powering off at mains it will continue to draw a fair amount of current. (EVGAs website specs for this PSU don't declare ErP compliance whereas their better PSUs do.)
Quite a nice PSU for the price. :)
A computer is only as good as it's PSU and the PSU is the one component capable of breaking everything else if it goes wrong, so it's nice to be able to get one at a good price from a branded manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Graeme23 Great value PSU
It is important to have a good power supply for your PC and this EVGA PSU gives you that quality at a reasonable price. It's not the most efficient power supply but for the price it will do the job for a great number of builds. Just make sure your GPU doesn't need more AMPS than this provides and you should be fine. The fan is quiet enough too. Great for an APU build or low-mid tier build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sketch13 Great price for a solid PSU
Bought this psu to replace the generic 500w psu I got with my pc. This psu has a large 120mm fan pushing air through it making it significantly quieter than my old psu. It is also powder coated black which makes it look very sleek. The cables are not individually sleeved but sleeved as groups with a plastic mesh. The mesh is not particularly opaque meaning the colours of the wires show through but this is a very cheap psu and my old psu had no sleeving at all so I can't really complain. Overall a very nice well constructed psu for a low price. I'd also like to commend Scan for their fast shipping and extremely strong and durable packaging.
