    Expert Review

    For around 40 bucks, Apevia gives you solid quality and a bit more of everything. First of all, the ATX-CW500WP4 delivers 500 Watts, which is outstanding enough at this price range. What else won't you find elsewhere for the price? Dual fans. A pair of 80mm fans (rear and top, depending on how you mount the PSU of course) provide the kind of airflow that frankly nobody else can match until you start talking about PSUs that are twice the price of Apevia's. And I don't find any reason to think that they've skimped on quality, either, although you probably won't want to push the 500W rating too hard. Remember: always get 1.5x the Wattage that you actually need -- think of the Apevia CW500WP4 as bridging the gap between 350W PSUs and the 500W/650W level. You certainly have sufficient juice and cooling for a system with a single PCIe card, and more than enough for a mainstream home or office PC. Rating: 4/5
