Default Thoughts on Antec HCG-620M

I am on the fence if I should nab this PSU while its on sale for $49.99. The system I will be having is just a basic setup nothing special and I really like the price and the features it has. The cables are a dark coding and very minimal cables to start. But im curious if anyone has had problems with it at all?

HCG are solid units. You should have no worry grabbing one and using it in your system.

Might be too late now, but in testing on hardwaresecrets.com it didn't pass the 100% load test at over 82%, it was at 81.5%, while the Antec EarthWatts Green 650W passed full load testing at over close to 84% at 45 deg C. The HCG is made by Seasonic while the EA Green is made by Delta (Saame OEM that built the older EarthWatts). One good idea is to look on newegg.ca at the user reviews and see how many are rated 1 and 2 eggs. Usually that is a good sign. I got the EA650 yesterday at canadacomputers.com, a killer deal at 60$.
