Good variable supply  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This is a good little supply if you need a variable supply from 0-24v. Voltage control is very smooth and the supply seems to be well regulated. The fan speed varies as needed and it is very quite.
However, it DOES NOT have a detent at 13.8 volts as described and the binding posts are NOT spaced to accept a dual banana plug. Also, at least on mine the meters are very inaccurate. The voltmeter reads about .5 volts low and the ammeter reads only 4 amps with a 5.5 amp load. (I measured with two different meters.)
