Here is the Link

People on Newegg gave it a mixed bag review, not that I always go by those. Any first hand experience on here or other professional reviews are welcome, I couldn't find any.
Happy shopping

perfectly lovely little psu... pretty quiet and powers an oc'd 7200 (3ghz), 8800gt, a 320gb disk, and a dvd drive very nicely...

I know I bought one for an Asian family to replace their dead HP-provided PSU about two years ago. That computer is still kicking last time I checked.

I'm using mine right now on my desktop with Q6600 at 3.0 Ghz, WD 640 GB, and an 8400 GS (fanless). No complaints but I'm certainly not stressing it! I wish they'd put the EA380's on sale for $29.99 again with free shipping. I knew I should have ordered at least a couple.

Edit: On a side note, you can get the EA380's for about $30 ($31.50?) shipped after Live.com cashback on eBay from Buy.com. At least when Live.com is at 30% back (20% last I checked :().

I got the 500W version of this psu for my little brother's comp build.
E6300 stock speeds, 1.0V undervolt
EVGA nforce 650i Ultra
X1950Pro
2x1GB GeiL ddr2-800 ram

500W is rather overkill for such a conservative build, but at least it seemed uber efficient. I used the Kill-A-Watt meter to measure everything, and the computer was running with a .99 power factor. Insane.... Just for comparison, both my current Ultra X-finity 650W psu and the old Enermax psu on my old computer both run at about .73 pf.

I've got to say though, I was really disappointed at first because the first psu i got from the egg was DOA. But the second is working fine so far (1 year). And from the reviews I've read, Antec PSUs seem to be hit or miss. Quite a few people complain of DOA PSUs, but when they work, they seem pretty nice.
