5 years strong

 

I've been running this PSU for five years now with no issues whatsoever. Highly recommended

Antec slipping

 

Antec is my favorite PS company, but buying the 500W continuous power worked stable for a long time before failure

The longevity is not there anymore, the powersupply began squealing at a high pitch, it was outside of 3 year warranty to so no support

Great Power Supply

 

In my business, I have purchased dozens of power supplies from Antec. I have never been disappointed with them.

The partially modular design allows me to keep my cases cleaner by not including cables I don't need

It would be nice to have the option to purchase this in black instead of silver

Solid basic power supply

 

Bought one of these to replace a PSU in one of my older systems. It's quiet and supplies reliable power.

Good price, quiet, steady power delivery

None so far

WORKED FOR 3HRS THEN DIED

 

ANTEC DON'T LET US DOWN.

ANTEC

BUILT A SYSTEM ON IT. AFTER I HAD ALL THE WINDOW UPDATES DONE AND READY TO INSTALL SOME SOFTWARE THE COMPUTER SHUT OFF. PUT ON MY POWER SUPPLY TESTER AND IT FAILED ALL THE VOLTAGES. NOW IN THE PROCESS OF RMA. HOPEFULLY THIS IS AND ISOLATED INCIDENT

Antec BP550 Plus

 

Six years later, it works like the first day I had it

It was an odd choice for antec to make one graphics card power line non-modular. This is a minor annoyance to me, as the machine the power supply is in has absolutely no video out (its a headless server). This is a very minor gripe

Works Fine

 

Needed a PS with 20A or more on each rail. This fit the bill. Simple modular cable design. Only needed one SATA power cable to cover three drives

One PCIe cable is hard wired on the primary rail with the Motherboard PS connector and CPU 12v. Since I did not need it, I tied it up out of the way. Would have been nice to be able to remove it

Would buy again luckily don't need to

 

Have had this running almost 24/7 for more than 5 years. Saw that it is listed as a tier 3 PSU on an "eggxpert" list of various PSU (that's after tiers 1,2a, and 2b). Currently powering i7 920 and gtx 760, going strong.

Reliable, good price, not too loud

Nothing of note

Solid and stable

 

This has been running a 24/7 home server since I received it 4 years ago. I have not had a single issue with it. It has been rock solid. If you don't need a ton of power and want something modular, reliable, efficient and quiet I doubt you will find...

Modular ; Efficient ; VERY reliable ; Quiet

Very Reliable

 

Plonked this in my home server and forgot about it - it's been very solid and reliable, running for a few years now ; Modular cabline is great, I wish all PSUs did this - my desktop is a mess with all the cables that I don't use

None
