Long lasting, pretty good

 

This power supply powered an overclocked AMD Phenom II x4, discrete graphics card, and all manner of extras for 4 years before I retired it. It is still working. I have never had a power issue with it.

Long lasting, no issues

Low wattage

Antec BP550 Plus

 

This PSU has lasted me for more about 2 and a half years now and has been working wonderfully. It's not that loud and has powered my AMD Athlon X4 640, 450 GTS and my 16GB RAM for my very minor video editing, normal usage and gaming. It also has space...

None so far

Grr8!

 

Clean design and make, very versatile, no nonsense install went perfectly and it is doing it's job admirably ; Appears to have a lot of power to spare. Fan runs quietly and unobtrusively

None, zero zilch

This was a good solid PSU. It finally bit the dust and I had to replace it. Wish it would have lasted a bit longer and I would buy nothing but Antec. I went Corsair second time around.

Lasted 4 years

Going Strong

 

I bought this mid tower atx case back in 2008 that came with this power supply and yes it is still working in 2014. Pretty reliable and I have put this power supply to the test by overclocking and running pcs for long periods of time. Defiantly worth...

Good Stuff

 

I got this thing back in 2012 and it's still trucking strong! Never had any issues with it

Besides the fact that it's an older model and I am sure there could be a better one I can't think of any cons

Antec 550W Power Supply

 

Bought this for the custome pc that I am working on, haven't had any problems with it came well packed and delivered fast. Does the job well and for a decent price

When i did a exterior view of the box one of the power plugs seemed to have a bit of white residue not 100%sure on what it could be but it was easily scraped off so not the biggest concern in the world

1st one DOA, 2nd one GTG

 

After Newegg RMA'd and shipped the second unit very quickly, the new PSU worked like a champ and has been working ever since March 2010.

I have been using the second PSU I received for almost three years now. Currently have Athlon X3 450, Radeon 6870, Sound Blaster X-Fi, two HDD's, one DVD, and several fans running

First one arrived DOA. I replaced an old, cheap PSU that finally died after several years with this one. Naturally, when the PC didn't even attempt to boot with this BP550, I thought it was the motherboard that was bad. I finally traced the problem to...
