Zebronics is a quite popular computer peripheral brand in India. Their products are also quite cheaper as compared to other more reputable brands. They sell variety of items like cabinets, keyboards, mouse, monitors, ups, add-on-cards, speakers, laptop accessories, networking products, power supplies (smps), tablet etc. Almost all their products are made in china and they just sell them by their own brand name which is Zebronics.

I have seen that in India Zebronics cabinets and power supplies / smps are quite popular or common and they are easily available in the market. Their cabinets are pretty good but you should avoid their power supplies or smps at any cost. I am saying this because of the following reasons that I have mentioned below:-
Why Zebronics SMPS are Not Good
Low Quality – Zebronics SMPS / PSU have very poor quality. A 250 Watt SMPS from good brands like Antec, Coolermaster, VIP etc. can easily outperform a 400 Watt Zebronics SMPS. You can risk your computer components by using Zebronics power supplies because of the lower quality components used in their power supplies.
Low Current on 12V Rail – The 12Volt current rating in Zebronics SMPS is too low and unacceptable. 12Volt ampere rating is responsible for providing current or power to your major computer components like cpu, motherboard, graphics card.
Zeb-400 which is a 400 Watt SMPS from Zebronics Platinum series has only 17 Ampere on its 12 Volt rail and Zebronics 500 Watt Platinum series has 22A on 12V rail, whereas a 350 Watt Cooler Master Elite Power 350W SMPS has 23 Ampere on its 12V rail. This also proves the difference in quality of the SMPS. Also the component quality i.e. transformers, heatsinks, fans etc. of the Zebronics power supplies are not good in terms of quality or up to the standards.

Cooler Master Elite Power 350W SMPS
High Price – Despite of being of bad quality their power supplies are not cheap either. For example, Zebronics 400 Watt Platinum series costs Rs. 1500/- while a Cooler Master Elite Power 350W SMPS costs around Rs. 1700/-. So their prices are comparable to the power supplies from good International SMPS brands.
So in all you should avoid Zebronics SMPS and look for good brands like VIP, Corsair, Cooler Master, Tagan, Antec etc.
