how good are these?
This is the only other place I can see listing them http://x-case.co.uk/c/118595/1/power-units-psu.html [at £10 more though OOS] and this would appear to be the website http://www.compucase-hec.co.uk/psu_xpower_light-480-580-680.htm

And if you click on the 'Where to Buy' link it seems that only Maplins are listed as the sole reseller for this model....

Running my Q9550 quad core system no problems. if that helps :thumbsup:
To me this sounds like a mid range PSU - it only outputs a maximum of 30A across its "three" 12v rails (maximum watts across the 12v is 360 according to the specs on the link above - so 360w/12v = 30A), and with todays PCs the 12v Amperage is generally more important than the watts.

As a comparison the corsair 400cx http://www.corsair.com/products/cx/default.aspx also produces 30A on its 12v rail.

The other difference you will most likely find is the corsair can output a constant 400W and probably peaks at 450-500W, whereas this is likely to have a peak of 580W (you generally find higher end PSUmanufacturers rate their PSUs at their constant and lower end PSU manufacturers rate their PSUs at their peak.

This is always a good little vid to show people about PSUs http://corsair.com/cinema/movie.aspx?id=622747
I'd say that this is about the correct money for the PSU rather than being a hot-deal.

spec seems good but i would fear with maplins mark-ups this is a scooby rather than a aston, so no ote from me either soz
I bought one. Does the job and is nice a quiet as my original PSU's fan was begining to make some suspect noises. Would recommend.
Nice, I was looking for an inexpensive replacement PSU for my parent's older computer which exploded this morning. £30 will do nicely and is even a slight upgrade from the 500W they were using.

For anyone operating a computer built in the last couple of years I wouldn't recommend this PSU. I'd go for a 700W+ because newer machines (with all the things we run on them) tend to be more power hungry. It's safer to buy more wattage than you think you need too.
