Experience: 5 Days
cheap and powerful
Great power supply, lots of power, lots of PCIE connectors.

Experience: 2 Days
cheapest 500W I could find
Antec brand name
so-so build quality
Got it for a really low price, was happy initially for a Antec brand.

However soon I discovered that not every Antec power supply unit is created equally, Basiq is Basic meaning entry level, it's not built by Seasonic or Delta like other Antec (higher price models), seems to built by FSP so I am too sure to fully trust it for the long run.

Anyway, should be fine to two years, I hope.

Experience: 3 Days

Looks to be a well-made unit (OEM'ed from Sparkle, makers of InWin/Powerman PSU), fan is quiet and the unit seems to be of high quality (quite cool running)
none that I'm aware of.
Bought one of these during last week's sale. Looked inside and found out that it's OEM'ed from Sparkle (if you know Sparkle, you'd know that they are affiliated with InWin/Powerman, etc.)

Quite cool running than my 450Watts Antec old dual 80mm fan unit when running the same mobo +processor setup (I used this new unit to swap out my old Antec 450Watts).

So far, so good.

Sparkle PSU hasn't failed my expectations so far (been using InWin/powerman/sparkle, SevenTeam and Seasonic for years....

Experience: 6 Months
Works but for how much longer?
lots, dont last long. Makes noises and gets hot.
Never had much luck with Antec PSU's. I have had to RMA one and now the replacement is acting up. I think it's doing the same thing as the last one. I have to switch it on/off at the back to get it going. Its makes a low pitch squeal some days.

Comment: Hardware Secrets Review: In summary, if you are building a basic or intermediate PC and want a power supply that provides decent efficiency, great voltage stability, low ripple and noise levels and protections that work, you can save money by buying Antec Basiq BP500U.

Comment: Xbit labs review.... Interestingly, the BP500U is the only Antec in this review that is not manufactured by Seasonic. Its manufacturer is FSP Group.
