A warning about buying this PSU - it doesn't ship well.
I just got one of these Power Supplies, and I thought I'd
let everyone know how it went. The case is very flimsy and
the transformer is very heavy - not a good combination.
The first one I got arrived a bit broken internally. The dealer
said that it looked like a truck hit it, when he got it back. The
second one I got; the transformer was loose inside, and 1 of
the 4 attachment screws was detached. The regulator board
was also slightly damaged. I chose to just repair it, instead
of continuing to play the "shipment lottery". It seems like it will
make a good PSU now that it's reassembled and repaired. But
that's a lot of aggravation for a new PSU. If you can pick it up in
person, then consider it. If you have to ship it, well you might
want to consider something else.
