I don't see the 12V rating under Overview or Details either, but from the user reviews this PSU will explode and burn down your house anyway.

Sorry, I should have said I found it in the pictures of the PSU showing the specs on the side.

I think New Egg just copies whatever is on the manufacturer's site, so it could be the manufacturer leaving out important details, rather than New Egg.

I'm pretty certain the only time that power supply delivers 500 Watts is when it's shorting out.

its a $20 POS power supply anyways, who the hell cares, anything they list is going to be 100% BS anyways.

Seriously Larry, seeing how you feel about them, why would you keep shopping at Newegg?

Oh, dear. :eek:

One strange thing I've noticed about New Egg (and this isn't a gripe, just an observation), is that their products often do not show up on those "price grabber" type sites.

I had the same "problem" on a totally unrelated site in another country, and with a reasonably decent brand (OCZ).
Sometimes PSU specs listed on shopping sites just aren't useful because they don't knclude what is (to us) the actually important information, even in the small print.
It's not a Newegg thing.

The OCZ website didn't list them in an easy to find place either (they were displayed in an image which basically shows a pic of the sticker). If you're dealing with a cheap off-brand PSU, it's likely even harder to get decent information of the specs they claim.
