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

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.
Summary: This unit used the main ATX power connector to supply its own power for operation, so it doesn't need batteries. Operations of basic power supply checkup is pretty simple, but you may need to read the (brief!) user manual to figure out the abbreviations for what's it's checking. You have to step through the different connectors to read their voltages.
Summary: When I open the box the transparent plastic was cracked. I believe, it was a return. But, it works. When I tested my power supply the display was placed red, I was very afraid, but I noted that the 24pin connector was not fitted well. I connected in the right way and finally works.
Summary: If you are in IT or just working at home on computer projects, this is a must have in trouble shooting power issues which could be the cause of many things with you system. It is easy and simple and works pretty good. I use it at work and have gotten my company to go out and purchase more of them for the staff.
