When building my pc this looked like a great way to save some cash so i bought this, it was loud but it gave a lot of power for minimum price, up until it broke i got 8 months out of it but lesson learned, spend the extra 20 quid and get the ocz 650w pc world sell it for £59 it supports crossfire and it's a lot quieter than that one. Also has a 3 year warranty. lesson learned, if you buy cheap you buy twice. don't listen to the positive reviews on here it is cheap for a reason.

I ordered this item as I was in need of more power for my pc. The item itself arrived in perfect condition early than expected and worked perfectly.This item is great for those who are not in need of 1000watt power supplies and suits me great. For the price and quality this is a must get.

Well constructed, provides a stable supply, has heaps of different connectors, is at stupidly low price! Simpy the best price /performance /quality ratio of it's type anywhere on the web at this time.

I had previously owned a CiT power supply (480w) for around 3-4 years or longer, so I thought I would go and buy another budget (as people label them) one for my PC upgrade.

I've had it for around a week of constant use and no problems at all. In fact, it is a 'used' one from amazon which came 'as new' so I guess a customer return or something to that effect.

It's really quiet however, make sure you check the cables it comes with - some people have posted in the reviews, I didn't know enough about them at the time but I realised I needed to buy an extra Sata to 6 pin PCI-Express Graphics Card power adapter cable. My graphics card requires 2x 6pin inputs and my motherboard 1, this PSU comes with just 2. But an easy fix nontheless and no complaints about this PSU.

I'd recommend buying this or another CiT 'budget' PSU if you're not wanting to spend a fortune on an expensive brand, if you have problems i'm sure you can return it any way.

~UPDATE: PSU is running fine almost a year later, no problems!

Like many others I bought it for the price. It appears well built and sturdy. However I noticed right away my GPU ran hotter, I dont mind this but its sign something was up. I also noticed it made an electrical hum constantly, also fine. But afer 2 nearly 3 months it started making a loud noise and the fan on the PSU kept speeding up for no reason. And now its dead. THANK CHRIST I had a spare PSU which I nearly threw out.

Anyway cant return this scrap metal to amazon as return time has expired. 35 quid down the toilet. Do Not Buy It.

Well after reading such mixed reviews I really had my reservations about buying this, however I couldn't really afford something better so I just went for it. It's currently supporting my gtx 550 ti graphics card very nicely, have had no problems with it whatsoever. I bought it directly from Amazon, and it was perfectly packaged and sealed, easy to install as well. There are an absolute ton of wires so just make sure they are tucked away out of the way of fans in case they get caught in them. I read a lot of the reviews where it had seemed like they had actually received a 2nd hand product, so make sure you just get it straight from Amazon. Honestly the thing with CiT seems like its 50/50, either it blows up in the first month or it keeps going for years. Make your own choice accordingly. The product quality also seems to vary among each wattage level of CiT power supplies but I can at least vouch for this one being decent. If you have a tight budget just try it out to be honest, hope you get lucky.

For what I paid for it, I didn't expect a great deal from it. However, it is a great little buy. Only minor negative point is that it makes a little bit of noise, but my case is see through one and not a normal case and has too many open cooling vents. Great product and has so far been very reliable even after I moved the computer 3-4 times.

Very quick delivery as usual from Amazon. Very pleased with product. PSU virtually silent. Plenty of scope for upgrading my Phenom X2 non-gaming PC. Would recommend as mid-range PSU for cash-strapped builders especially with mixed PATA and SATA drives. The power leads are just long enough for a standard height tower.

I bought this like others thinking it looked a good deal. The unit powered up the PC OK and all was well until I noticed that the machine was far hotter than normal and little red dot artefacts started appearing on my screen as a result of voltage fluctuations feeding the graphics card. A better PSU solved the problems. Don't buy this because you'll only be sending back after a week or two.
