I bought this psu because I've upgraded my GPU and I needed a 8pin PCI-E power connector to power it, which the old one did not have.
I think it's been a good value for money purchase so far. (I cannot say too much about it's lifetime as it's a recent buy)
It is running quiet under load for me and I did not have any unexpected system behaviour since I've swapped the PSUs.
I read articles about what is the recommended make/model to get and this was not amongst them.
However, in my early opinion, this unit meets my system' needs, (power req, connectors, cable length) and does the job for me just fine.
