    That looks really good for €14,95. A Delta 80PLUS Bronze PSU, full with Ruby's. But it isn't ATX?

    Looks like an old but competent build. Nice soldering quality, good layout, good caps.

    1st Picture looks as though the PCB says Delta so it's most likely not a bad unit to use in a pinch.

    Almost, but not quite...
    It's about 100mm in hight, so it does not fit in every case...

    But the screw holes are ATX compliant. So all you need is an ATX Case with a little more space for the PSU, best thing is something for redundant PSUs...

    Well, if it really is a delta, it's a bargain. Quite likely they're excess stock from a big PC OEM like HP, Dell etc. Snap up a few more if you foresee yourself needing them.

    I was able to snap up my DPS-750CB (which is a ridiculously overbuilt dual-PCB unit) for only $50. It too is bigger than a standard ATX PSU but with standard screw-holes. It actually fits nicely in my old Antec 1200 case, but not in my current CM N200 (which is why I downgraded to the DPS-600MB).

    But yeah, at that price, Stefan's unit looks like a steal.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    Well, to be honest:
    This unit is from 06, 12th week. So 14,95€ is pretty OK...

    There were also some 350W units for that price. One 300W Delta and a 350W Hipro (I think, also 100mm in height).

    And yeah, this unit really is a Delta. Officially it's called S26113-E538-V50-02. Model: DPS-500QB A
    Date Code: 1206.

    It's from pollin.de, they sometimes have some old high quality PSUs like the one I bought for 4,95€. A unit made in Thailand, not China or Taiwan
    Sadly they don't do no PSUs no more, just fans...
    And one of the few units you'll see a pair of 5600µF caps...

    I think it is either week 6 or june 2012. I find it impossible to be made in 2006 like this, I bet the 8pin PCIe standard did not even exist than. Also it has been certified in 2009 by Ecova, you think they started making them and three years later had them certified to be 80 PLUS Bronze? I think it is the other way around ;-)

    The Pollin shop is OK? I mean no disrespect but partner of mine says quite often when he run into offer like this it was from some not really nice people from far east origin…definitelly nobody to deal with he says.

    Yeah, you are right. This unit is from 2012, not 06 as I mentioned earlier.
    I looked at some pictures and the Timecode on the caps supports that it's from 2012.

    Where did they get it? I think they got it from a legal source. There are two possibilitys:
    a) a store that went bancrupt and had some palettes of Fujitsu PSUs
    b) it's something that's written off by somebody and thus was ready for scrapping.

    And if I'm not mistaken, Fujitsu had some assembly lines for PCs in Germany, so maybe Pollin got it from them, those old things they didn't need anymore...

    Pollin is a really good shop. Had some orders there, never any problems. It's one of the really old shops which still offer a printed catalogue. The prices are a mix with really good deals, normal pricing and some really exensive price tags. So if the price is right it's one of my favourite shops.
