Short life span

 

Only a 1 year warranty, you get what you pay for. I emailed Rosewill today simply to notify them of the failure, in case they were interested.

pretty solid performance for two years, never oc'd, xfired, or pushed its wattage limits so I'll never know how the psu would have preformed in those conditioned. I only had it installed in a very basic enviroment

As of today it has developed an alarming whine/screech that upon research could be extreme coil whine or capacitor(s) failing. I've seen psu's take out other components before so this psu is officially dead to me and I will replace it with a different...

Rosewill RD500-2SB

 

I cannot say anything else negative about this PSU. It worked for the low amount of wattage I needed, and after 3 years of near constant uptime, it died a kings death. Valar Morghulis.

I used this in a build for my media room, where the machine was nearly always on, and had daily reboots. Worked great for the time that I had it

After I switched out the PCU in my main computer to my media one, because it was beginning to cut into my wallet having 4+ computers on at all times, I put this PCU (product review item) in a personal computer in one of my offices, and after about a...

solid PSU

 

braided connectors ; nice blue light ; good price

8 pins connector too short for my set-up : it run just under the graphic card to reach top left of the mobo. Everything else is long enough to have good cable management. I removed one egg for this

Got it in a bundle

 

I got this in a DIYPC Superbundle - but am not using it in my main pc. I exchanged an older PSU with this one in my other PC. Seems to be doing everything a PSU should do. I've docked an egg because of how cheap it feels, although this isn't meant to...

True 500 watt ; Cheap ; Will run most higher end cards
