bought this when i decided to start my own computer repair business. simple to use, nice screen, plugging and unplugging the different connectors are a breeze compared to other models i have used. Very accurate, and has paid for itself :)

I've used two of the other type that are rebadged and sold by at least 8 companies. They both fried when measuring certain psu's with high voltage output. I put this unit on the last psu to burn the others out and it handled it fine, displaying the red screen. I now warn folks about the other units. This psu tester is great.
