Is this PSU reliable?

this psu https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153233&ignorebbr=1 is on an incredible deal on newegg. will definitely work with my ~330w microatx mini tower case build, but looking to see if anyone has this or knows anything about it. Thanks

I cant find any information on this and the oem. Looking at its power distitribution it most likely has an ancient topology. I would avoid it.

According to this https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/, it is on a lower quality side... :)

NOt saying its good but tier list are not to be trusted as they have many flaws. Base your recommendation using reviews from trusted sites like jonnyguru.

Never use a tier list, go on a unit by unit basis, using profesional reviews when recommending a PSU

I agree with all of you that tier lists are not a 100% (probably not even 75%) reliable source. As a starting point, to decide which PSU reviews to look up ;)

Yes but you did not do that, you referenced it as a source. You don't cite Wikipedia, you cite it sources.

Only some certain Smarts (the Smart SE series is CWT GPM, Smart Bronze 450-650 is older Corsair CX) but this one is a different platform from Shenzhen UTPower Technology and is completely untested, so a blind purchase.

Yeah I know, but at $20 I think its worth picking up. Don't have much cash now, but when I do i'm gonna grab a seasonic g series 550w psu. Then I could use this in a a simple office-only build instead of on a game rig.

Are there reviews on the new BQ series or Rosewill Glacier PSUs yet?

For the BQ series we have an in-depth review for the 850W one and another less in-depth review for the 750W one. The 650W uses the same platform as those two. No reviews for the Andyson-made 600W and under BQs though.
