Adequate to the basic t-shooting task, but NOT the final word by any means.

Waydavis, Amazon

  • Summary: Hmm... It said the supply was OK.... NOT That doesn't mean this thing is junk. It just means that it isn't ALL-KNOWING. NONE of them are. As a front-line basic T-shooting tool it is fine. To do what (I) would have needed would require every rail to be fully loaded and then watch the voltage stability/noise with a oscilloscope. THESE devices cannot do that and were never meant to.

Not a must have but handy tool

  • Summary: Did its job, verified the PS was dead. Great for testing news ones to ensure the voltage is correct before you install it.

Did not detect power supply problems.

Mike, Amazon

  • Summary: Short version: This device was unable to detect a bad power supply. Long version: I was having crashy problems with my computer under high-load conditions. It smelled of a power supply problem, but I couldn't really pin it down. Software monitoring was showing a somewhat low voltage on the +12V rail, but was it low enough to be a problem?. The power supply had been stable for 3.5 years.

Perfect PSU Tester

JJ50, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: This is a pretty well made tester for the price. Especially if you compare it to some of the same priced testers, that come with cheap plastic parts. Get this Dr. Power II and you won't be sorry!

Essential Tool

C. Villanueva, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: This is by far one of the best purchases I've made. This is a vital tool to test a new/old power supply to make sure it works before or to troubleshoot if you think your PSU is causing you issues. The ports are easy identifiable and also have labels. I haven't had any real problems installing or removing my connections but sometimes they will stick but you just have to give it some muscle. I figure after a while they will loosen up a bit.

Works Great

drafthorse, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Works great for testing suspect PSUs computers. Blue display shows all the relevant voltages on the different rails. Great feature: the display changes from blue to a lurid red color if one of the voltages goes out of kilter. Great for those PSUs that have to run for awhile before the voltages start going out of spec.
