I have never left a review on Amazon before but for this product I decided to make a necessary exception. Basically it exploded after 4 hours of use. Terrible and completely inadequate. It may be ok for a basic office based systems but for anything that actually requires 700 watts of power it is just a joke.

After 3 months of having the power supply... BOOM!!! Was like my own personal firework display for a couple of minutes. I quickly removed it from computer and the mains.

Would really not recommend this even if you like fireworks. As many others have said.

This wasn't even worth the £14 as it could have caused more damage. Luckily my computer was saved, but would recommend going with corsair instead.

Hardware I had when it blew:
amd FX-8150 Bulldozer
GTX 3GB 660ti FTW graphics
Corsair 8gb 1600mhz RAM
Western digital 1tb 7200rpm hard drive
Crosshair formula V MOBO

700 should have been more than enough for this machine, this power supply must not be capable of what it says.

With the amount of bad reviews this item should really be taken off.

The device is heavy and built very well; the cables are also long enough for a standard midi tower at least.

It has enough connectors to do all the jobs I will need in my pc and are not too close together, plenty of molex and sata connectors with the pci-e it's all great stuff brill for he money

It's not absolutely silent, but it is not noisy, I use mine on my media PC and it is more than acceptable, you really have to take noise level's with a pinch of salt, if you are in a silent room then yes this can just be heard but only just, but chances are something will be making noise somewhere and this PSU will certainly not drown many things out All in all great value and does the job so in my opinion it's scores 5 stars.

The first psu I ordered didn't work because luckily I had anti surge protection on my motherboard to protect me from damage to my other components after sending it and getting a replacement I installed the new one and it worked pretty well until two days after I received it I started a game and the psu went off banging sparking and smoking which tripped the upstairs fuse in the main fuse box so I would not reccomended this psu you get what you pay for I would reccomended a more expensive quality psu like ocz or corsair which is what I'll be getting now

The power supply works, which is all i really wanted.

It is loud and i few times the fan of the power supply started making a loud noise. It went away after i shut down the pc and restarted.

If you have the PC in you bedroom and intend to leave it on at night i would not recommend this PSU.

So I've been using this power supply in my custom built gaming rig for 7 months now. When I was building my PC I didn't see the need in splashing out lots of cash for a power supply because they all have to meet certain standards anyway. So I calculated how much power I needed and found the 700w to be adequate for my needs (AMD Phenom IIx6 1090t processor, AMD Radeon 6850HD graphics, regular SATA hard drive, DVD +rw drive, wireless pci card, 2 sticks of DD3 4gb ram.) This also gave me room for upgrading even to upgrade to a crossfire set up. My motherboard has a built in antisurge protection so even if the PSU does go haywire then my components are protected.

So far I haven't had any problems with the product until today when my antisurge kicked in whilst playing battlefield 3 but I'm using the PC to write this review and no problems since. I'd say this PSU is well worth the money if you have the adequate protection to keep your expensive components safe. I'd definitely reccomend it to anyone because you can't really go wrong with the price. If you are concerned however about how stable your PSU is going to be and cost isn't an issue then I would reccomend spending a little bit more on a more established brand.

Generally, it was a very quiet PSU. Unfortunately, it started smoking (and exploded) only after 3 months of use :(

I recently bought this to put in my new gaming PC (yay). I had it put in by a professional friend I know, but from the word "go" it performed intermittently. It gave out once during Windows installation, causing me to restart, and just conked out every two or three days after that, but always came back on.

Note that this was in a brilliantly ventilated space, and my toes were freezing because of it's fans and I had the window open to make sure it wasn't overheating.

The reason I know that this power supply was the problem, is that I was using it about a week ago, not doing anything intensive (Facebook) and my PC crashed again after having a relatively good spell of time. Then, it decided to shoot sparks out the back and make some very unpleasant explosion-ey (that's a word) noises.

Everything then began to smell of burning and I swear I saw a little smoke coming out the back. My friend risked the integrity of his hand lunging in to pull the power cord out.

I see that Alpine is a very good and reliable company, I was amazed with the price of this but really didn't expect it to break. I haven't been able to check if this has sent a load of power through the rest of my PC (or something bad like that) that could have damaged other parts.

As a result, I see this as a complete failure and to be honest, I would expect either a full refund or a replacement from a respectable company such as yourselves. Sorry for any convenience, but I'm really unimpressed with this poor service and would like something to make up for such a let down.

Please, if you have any information on how to get such a refund, email me at lazermonkey77@gmail.com or if you're one of the lovely people that work at Amazon, chuck another one in the post? That'd be great.
