Hi all,

I recently had a chat with a friend who has an EZCool 550W PSU. I've never heard of the brand before, so I'm curious if anyone here has any experience with them. Are they decent quality or avoid-at-all-cost cheapo's?

Thanks.

I can't find any reason for buying an EZcool PSU (even at low price). There are millons of better choices.

Question is, are there any facts to back this up?

Saw it on sale well under £20, incl VAT.
If the data label is the same as shown here its got a -5v rail. And 24Amps of +12v - about as much power for a modern PC as a good 330w-350W PSU.
For comparison, SeaSonic SS-350ET has 27Amps of +12V, Antec Basiq 350W 23Amps of +12V.

Answer is, since nobody knows what is inside that PSU (there is no reviews about it), therefore I wouldn't buy an unknown product even at low price. Maybe your friend could give us some facts in a short time if he finally buys it.

Already bought it; I will try to get some more definite info on the specifications. Thanks for the replies so far.

Specifications mean nothing at all. Some cheap manufacturers simply lie. You should look what is inside and test the unit.

A 550 watt psu with only 24 amps on the 12v should be enough for anyone to turn away without bothering to test it.

No further feedback I'm afraid, I wasn't able to have a look at the EZCool to see if it's any good.
