Very heavy duty.......  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have had the Astron power supply only for a limited time however I am very pleased with how well it was built.

Pros:
-Very generous heat sinks on both sides and rear
-Solid metal cabinet
-Well soldered connections
-Dedicated ground screw/clamp
-Can be used in series
-Handles rated load with a good cushion
-Accurate meters for load and voltage

Cons:
-Only one set of binding posts on rear
-Power switch (I am being very picky here)

I will submit another review once I have used it more, however no surprises here it seems like a well made unit.
