    A good power supply to upgrade existing machines

    I've recently upgraded several components in an HP h8-1234, which included more memory, a faster CPU (AMD FX-8350) and a much more powerful graphics card (a Radeon RX-480). As a result this machine needed a beefier power supply to replace the pretty weak 300 watt unit that is in the machine. I've heard that the HP was notorious for not liking power supplies greater than 650 watts, so I found this power supply for only about $40 at the local Best Buy. It went in easy and it worked perfectly for my machine. The fan seems pretty quiet as well. It is nothing fancy (i.e., no removable power connectors), but will do the job for those upgrading or replacing power supplies in so-called "big-box" machines, such as HPs or Dells. It will also work if building a fairly mid-range custom machine and don't need anything fancy.

    Needed a cheap temporary PS until a replacement came in for my previous PS which is in the RMA process. Got in on clearance for less than $30. So far, no problems. Running 24/7 for over a week now, without issues. Enough connectors and power for a mid-level PC (8 pin ATX and 8 pin for graphics card, and a couple SATA plus a couple Molex). Running an I7-4790K, 32GB ram, 2x SSD, plenty of fans, DVD and RX 480 just fine. Only con is no On/Off switch. I've been saved from frying a system a few times just by having that. As a temporary replacement, it's working just fine. Should work great for a system with less load as a main PS.

    This powersupply is very nice. I know quite a bit about power supplies and this one is alright. The fan is very quiet and is effective. It peak power is 520w, but it's actual continuous power is 420w, as it states in the manual. It matches my grey metal case, so it looks very uniform. It is a little long, so the cables were touching the optical drive. The 20+4 pin was a pain to get into the motherboard because the +4 pin wasn't staying attached to the main 20pin. But i used 2 hands and it got it in alright. It is being used to power my HTPC, which Is a custom build, which had a 2.2ghz athlon 64x2 (110watts) 3gb ram, 500gb hdd dvd drive and an AMD radeon 6450 (over clocked to 750 mhz core and 560 mhz memory). The powersupply is quiet enough for a htpc. The fan kicks up nice and loud when it is first powered on just so you know it works.

    Better than average, but beware the cable lengths

    I bought this on a whim because I needed something that could power my new graphics card and was very skeptical to say the least. I'd at least heard of Insignia, but I'd never used one of their products before I bought this power supply. It's been working great for the past couple months and I don't regret buying it at all. My only complaints I would issue towards this component is that - The CPU power cable is too short (for ATX case with bottom mounted power supply, cable only approx 1ft long), make sure it will reach up to the header before you buy (only a problem with bottom mounted power supplies) - Would prefer an 80 Plus rated power supply at BestBuy Stores - No power switch on back of power supply

    seems cheaply made, but does supply power

    As far as power supplies go, I don't have much to compare it to. but I must say, the plastic SATA connectors are trash. One snapped just straight pushing it into the hard drive. no angle, straight on. The Molex connectors don't come with caps so they spark when they get too close to any metal in the case. thankfully the motherboard has over voltage protections and grounding connections. as for the power supply itself, it works. I've got the molex cables dangling outside the case until I can get caps and I'll never use more than one or two SATA drives so I won't be needing the broken connector.

    The price cheap, box not appealing at all and I was really hesitant that this power supply unit will deliver, I messed up while installing it and it did deliver what it said, It didn't damage my board,video card, CPU or anything else, it kept shutting down to protect my lovely computer. Buy it with confidence, I challenged it and it over delivered. I'm a PC technician with 22+ years of experience and I give it 4 thumbs up :) pure piece of art. I'm totally shocked that Insignia manufacture computer components, I'm very pleased. Great product, I'm still shocked Insignia??? Amazing

    I've installed a lot of power supplies over the years and this one looks nice but feels a little on the lighter side from what I expected for a 520w. I've bought a bunch of the Insignia 400w and they actually feel like they would be heavier duty than this one. The pc I bought this for was occasionally hard rebooting on its own and this replacement did solve that issue. I went with a higher wattage on this particular pc as it had a water cooled processor and high end graphics card for CAD.

    I came to the store to purchase a smaller wattage power supply. Once there, the salesman showed me this unit and for $10 more increased my system wattage to this unit considering it was going to run a Lightscribe DVD burner, Vista Business and would be attached to my network to run movies and DVD's to my bedroom. This unit is more efficient and ready to supply more power if I need or want to up gave this machine the power is there and was only $10 more than I came in to buy.
