I like the cons the first guy listed.He actually tried starting it up after some sparks LMAO.
Quote:
Cons: At the fourth month, the computer suddenly shut down. When I powered it back up, there was heavy sparking from the PSU. Subsequent power-ups produced no boot. I swapped in another PSU and everything worked fine; swapped in this unit again...no power. I've never had a PSU fail on me like this.
I have no idea of the quality of the unit I loved how much of a maroon the guy was.

at least it didnt take the rest of the rig with it, for the price get 2, you will likely need the spare, and the spare will give you time to order the 3rd and on and on.
