Package / Contents

Whilst many PSU’s normally come with a wide range of accessories and extra “goodies” such as cable management clips and other helpful things of this sort, the SP-SS550 came with relatively little extra stuff. With only an owner manual and a sticker the extra department is looking decisivily bare.

A first impression of a product that anyone looks at is the outer design of the packaging. The Silver Power SP-SS500 500W is a fairly sized box as it is non-modular and includes all the wires you would need for such a PSU.

 Silver Power SP SS500 Power Supply Review

When removing the PSU from its packaging, the weight was fairly balanced (wasn’t too heavy and wasn’t too light). We personally found this fine as although other same power voltages from other brands may be heavier, you don’t want to weigh your system down too much. All comes down to personal preference at the end of the day.

The overall look of the PSU gives a good impression. The Silver Power SP-SS500 is painted black and has a nice glossy, mirror finish. Overall details are clean and often with cheap PSU’s, the details on the piece of hardware are often neglected with the finishes (slanted stickers, sharp corners etc) ruined, the Silver Power SP-SS500 is up to high standards with no faults at all. The cables from the PSU are of high standard with strong outer fabric on the leads themselves. Connectors are also of high quality as you do not have to struggle plugging or unplugging them from your motherboard of off your hardware. All of the cables on this selected PSU have a black sleeve which helps keep the cables together, reduce tangling and ultimately improve the air flow circulating around the case. On all of the cables out of the PSU, they are all sleeved up to an inch away from the connectors. We found this gave a clean look for those who do not wish to tamper with their PSU.
