I am a long-time happy user of Antec Powersupplies. I originally got my 1000w Antec TruePower Quattro back in 2008. I needed 1000w back then because I was running 2x 4870x2. I never imagined that I'd still be using it today. Before that, I was running an Earthwatts 650. My existing Antec PSUs have been so reliable, that I haven't actually needed to purchase a PSU for any of my personal PCs in quite a while. I'd love to get my hands on one of their newer units, and see what it could do for me.

I have used a number of Antec cases and PSUs in the past. They have all been great, especially the P180 chassis and HCG 620 PSU.

I am currently modding an Antec 900 for an AMD build that I'm working on. This PSU would fit in great with the red/black color scheme I'm working with and provide more than enough power for the rig.

Its a solid performer from a solid brand. I also have a cheap shit Huntkey that needs replacing.

Antec is a good brand! This power supply is good enough for most needs and even has a cool look with black & red color.

My 700 is getting long in the tooth and would love to replace it with an Antec PSU.

I used to run nothing but Antec, then had a few not hold so well and went to Corsair. I'd like to give Antec another shot - and what better way to do so than a free component? :)

Well the color is catchy and it looks like a solid modular psu! I've always been a fan of whatever is cheapest but still good overall quality and Antec has made it on that list.

I haven't had an Antec PSU in forever. The last one I think was one of their True Power 750W units. Good power supplies and last a long time.

I'd use this to replace the old Antec PSU in an Antec case that is so old it doesn't have PCIe connectors and build a new system around it.

Anything is an improvement over the OEM POS PSU I've been stuck with since my income was significantly reduced.

Also it look real slick and I like modular PSU for their clean design.

I have had Antec power supplies in almost every computer I have built. This one would help me complete my build perfectly.

Antec is a long term computer products supplier, I have an Antec case and several EA-500D and one EA-650 in use. (By me or in systems I've assembled).
I trust the products, reputation, and support. I am assembling a gaming rig with an AMD R9 280X. An Antec Edge series power supply would be a perfect addition. Reviews show outstanding performance, quiet, efficiency, and excellent build quality.

This would be great to replace one of my non modular Antec Power Supplies at home.

There are 4 reasons I want this:

1. Quality: Antec means business.
2. Ascetics: That thing is [H]awt! I love love love flat cables, and the LED color matches my system. The color scheme on the PSU itself ain't too shabby either.
3. Efficiency: Saving money and carbon with 80 PLUS Gold is always good!
4. Modding: Fully modular means fun. Okay, I do love flat cables, but I could paint them or wrap them later to change the color scheme on the cables if I use the PSU for a different build, since I usually keep power supplies (especially good ones) for a very long time.

I've bought about 15 Antec power supplies and am currently running a hcp1200, tp750, 650 green, and an old neo 480 power supply in their respective systems at home. I would love to swap out the old neo with this new power supply.

Looking to finish my first new build in 7-8 years, and the unit in my old system is an Antec PP-403X. Really want to stay with Antec as their track record of quality is excellent.
