So of course with this test setup, I’m not able to make any claims on the efficiency of the unit or whether or not it can handle its rated 550w. I can confirm though that there are no dangerous ripples on any of the rails. the 3.3v rail is particularly good, with the others doing nicely, all sitting well within their specific caps.

I’m a bit dissapointed at the lack of cable braiding. Surely that wouldn’t have impacted the price that much?

The price does vary for this unit, between £50 and £65. If you can find it for the former, I’d say you’ve got yourself a good deal.


Noise/Ripple fluctuations are acceptable
Reasonably priced


No Cable braiding
No modular cabling
A bit noisy during operation
