Can anyone tell me what this means and help me with my power supply in general

My Dad bought me this Power supply as a gift and it's from raidmax but it's new and it advertises Japanese capacitors. Can anyone tell me if it's good and how to test it if it's faulty. Also

I didn't find any reviews of it. Not sending out review samples is usually an extremely bad sign. 

Assuming they aren't lying on the label, it should be DC-DC, so it has the chance to be decent. 

Japanese capacitors don't really mean anything. They don't make a good PSU, and they can't fix a bad PSU. 

If it powers on, it likely isn't faulty.

Ugh, not having hopes of it being good. the 500w one is just crap in 2014, and since we're nearly 2019 there's no place in a PC for this thing. I do not expect PSUs of the same series to get a significant improvement even if it is a completely different design under its shell.

sadly none of them go deep enough. Those are not reviews by our standards, merely "feedback" or "thoughts"

I don't get it, if you get Corsair CX500M or Seasonic S12ii 620w then I can still say you're judging by brand (which is completely wrong), but in this case Raidmax doesnt have fame for selling good stuff at all.

That's not reviews. 

Tell me, what do they tell you about the regulation, ripple, crossload performance, noise, components used and transient response? Nothing? Then they're not reviews. 

reviews for general consumers and in-depth analysis for enthusiast are  different.

Reviews are supposed to tell you about the product. These are just random clueless consumers trying to justify their purchase, in the hopes of not getting buyer's remorse.

True. And hearing that some corair employees had a lot of fun with blowing up a raidmax, I don't really trust them

true.

 

let me just say this. Yes raidmax has some seriously cheap products. and they failed horribly like their 450w  80+ psu.  Not everything has been utter crap just 

almost every forum there is that mention the name raidmax turns into a name bash,  regardless of the quality of the product.  so people just stay away.

 

Do i think this a an "amazing" product no, But product should be just fine.

Again, source? It's not that I don't trust the product because of the brand, I don't trust the product because I can't find any reviews of it, not consistent information. 

 

Also, Andyson generally doesn't make too well performing PSUs, so I really doubt the PSU is particularly good for the price.
