Rated 5 out of 5 by Armin Very high quality, no noise
This PSU is extremely well built and runs very quiet - if not absolutely silent. The material choices are sensible and the general matte black coating helps with concealing it in the case. This PSU makes absolutely no electric noise, which is more than I can say about some BeQuiet! PSUs I have had before. It is very small considering its wattage and efficiency, and there is absolutely zero drawback or consequence to its size.
One small gripe I had with this PSU is that one of the cables came slightly damaged / warped, but I am replacing them with braided cables in my build, so I'll never use them anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuddenlyPineapples Great PSU but a shame about the looks
Okay so, sure I got it mainly because of Seasonic's reputation for premium quality power supplies; that and the recent Custom PC saying that its little brother (760w) was the best on test and only recommending that Corsair HX on its lower price point.
It really is top quality, stable efficient power delivery and sleek black cabling - with some shorter cables to avoid excess if you're only running 2 SATA devices close to the PSU or in a smaller case.
Only really disappointing feature is Seasonic's confusing decision to strip the silver trim from around the fan - and equally a shame that Scan are still displaying this older model image
I know its pedantic and with most cases you don't see that part, but it is quite lacklustre pulling out a plain black PSU when you open the packaging, knowing that you just dropped a lot of money on it
Still, function over form I guess!
