Is the antec true power trio 550w good? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
The 550Watt Antec TPT is EXCELLENT in my opinion. I had one before, it's very reliable.


EDIT: 550, not 5500. haha

I just purchased two of the HX520's myself for a couple of folding rigs. Most excellent PSU.

It's still a better pick than the TP Trio.

Here is a review of the 650W TP Trio. Boom = no good (ok, probably things are fixed, but still it reveals a serious flaw).
