In December 2012 I ordered a HIPRO HP-D3537F3R LF upgrade from "KDM4U" to replace a HP 5188-2859 300W power supply in a HP m8100y Media Center PC, and was given the option by the seller to substitute an upgrade 480W KDM-M6480N instead, which I accepted. Installation was easy, the 480W upgrade supply having the same length/width dimensions, mounting hole locations, and fan opening & AC socket placement as the original replaced supply. The upgrade had all the power connectors and cable lengths needed to directly replace the original. Some mechanical differences were noted: The upgrade does not have the green power led of the original; the upgrade is 4" deep instead of 5 9/16" deep for the original; on the face opposite the fan opening & ac socket of the upgrade only, there is a removable mounting angle bracket (not needed for my installation), and also on this face the power cable exits the upgrade supply on the end opposite the fan rather than opposite the AC power socket as on the...
this replaced a dead power supply in an older tower computer I have. There were enough mounting options to ensure that it mounted easily and fit the screw pattern on the computer case. There are several additional power cords provided with this power supply so I can add additional drives in the future. The fan is very quiet when the computer is powered on.
I'm glad that I purchased this replacement power supply, it made my repair job much easier.
I thought I was buying the advertised Hipro power supply, but instead I was shipped a Shark Technologies power supply that did not even have the required connectors for my HP desktop. At least I was able to return the product, but I had to pay return shipping of over $15.00 through priority mail. In the end I was out over $15.00 for nothing. Be careful where you shop. I wonder if Amazon has any control over the vendors who sell on Amazon. An individual selling a book is one thing, but a business selling other products through your site - there has to be some oversight and accountability, at least to ensure that they are selling what they advertise. As you can tell, I will not buy from this vendor again. The 1 star is for the fact that they did not prevent me from returning the product, and readily took it back.
