      Disadvantages

      Really good and useful if you are testing PSUs

      Introduction
      ##########

      When I heard of this I thought "this is a really neat piece of kit" - if you are a computer builder, or just want something to test your power supply unit for your computer without installing it in your computer, then this is for you.



      What is it?
      #########

      Normally when you get a power supply unit (PSU) for your computer, you will need to open up your computer and install it, this means unwiring everything and connecting this up - this can take a lot of time. By the way those of you who don't know what a PSU in a computer is; if you look at the back of your computer, it's the thing blowing hot air out at the top.

      What this power supply tester does is test the PSU without a computer being present!



      How to Use It
      ############

      It's really simple. You just plug your main PSU power cable in the power tester, and plug the PSU into the wall socket - and you're ready to go! You will hear the PSU being to fireup and a green light will show on the tester if the test is successful, and if its not been successful then a red light will show.

      This tester will test all 12v units with ease. I have tested many units with this from all manufacturers from OEM to Dell.

      The only thing I would say is, if you leave the unit running for longer periods the tester will get very hot. But this is normal, it even says on the instructions that it will get hot and it's completely normal.



      Conclusion
      ##########

      A really useful kit if you are always testing power supply units, if not then this will not be very much use to you.
