Smoked most everything in my rack  Time owned: more than 12 months
Works Great until the fans begin to die. Wish Samlex would use higher quality fans. Their own staff admitted that the fans generally die every 3-4 years. In my situation, when the fans died in mine, the power supply went out of regulation, voltage was all over the place, and several items within my 19" rack were smoked due to the bad design of this power supply. Again, worked GREAT until the fans started failing. I've had a Newmar (PM-12-80) running years beyond what this samlex will. FYI, keep a stack of these power supplies and be sure to visit the site and replace the fans about every 4 years (which requires you to remove the lid from the unit, pulling it from the rack all together). This power supply is a ticking time bomb, just waiting to smoke your equipment you have attached to it.
