This appears to be a good price for a branded RGB power supply. From a reputable manufacturer but I can't find any reviews. Anyway I've bought onme and will update this with my opinions when I get it.

Looks like one to avoid.
Ketchup and mustard cables.
And RGB.

That PSU tier list is tier 'B' for 'B'ull

It's put together by enthusiasts who expect enthusiast grade gear (which this is obviously not given the price) with comments like "Why would you skimp on literally the most important part in your rig". The most important part? Nope. Literally the part of your rig that if it's good enough for your needs it's good enough full stop.

They also have a real habit of putting untested stuff into tier E... Just because you haven't tested it doesn't make it garbage or dangerous...

This will be better than some no-name Chinese piece of garbage but it's obvs not going to be good as a Corsair AX1200i (being a tenth of the price).

I wouldn't buy / use one myself but that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of non-enthusiasts that are perfectly happy with theirs. That said, i do find it slightly worrying that I can't find an 80+ certification for it anywhere... although I've seen mention of it being more than 85% efficient.

In short? You might want to spend a bit more and pick a better manufacturer if you can but if you're building a low end system on a really tight budget it might be OK for you.

Here's some stuff about the non-RGB version. I've no idea if the components are the same in RGB / non-RGB so take with a pinch of salt.
