Can't recommend  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I found that this supply cannot output even half of its rated amperage without overheating and shutting down on overtemp. The heatsink became too hot to touch with less than 5 amps output. A replacement unit was the same way. Probably OK for intermittent higher-amp duty such as an SSB transceiver, but certainly not for continuous duty over 5 amps.

Very Good Buy!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I've had mine for about 6 months now. I use it to power my T-2400 and Z100 antenna tuner. No problems ever. Great quality for the price. Highly recommend this unit.

Great buy  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've used this power supply on my Yaesu 2800M for about 2 years and it's never hinted at breaking a sweat even when the radio is running at high power on FM for long periods of time.
I would recommend this power supply to any Ham who needs a smaller power supply for something that draws 10 to 12 amps.

Awsome Good  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a awsome cheap power supply. I have had mine for 5 years.. after that time I had a fault light started comming on. so I went to my local electronic parts store and did a partial rebuild was fun and now is still in service. Good product. Now I am looking at the PS-21KX

inexpensive & works great  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have recently bought a PS-14KX & use it with a 50 watt yaesu 2 mtr. I have had no issues with it at all. For the $39.99 or there about I gave for it, it's a buy in my book. Not all the bells and whistles but a solid little unit that's probably all the majority of us need to run a mobile rig as a base unit. Buy one & save some $$$'s for hamfest

Works for me  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had one of these for several years, and never had a problem. It puts out what it is supposed to.

Wow  Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought this power supply brand new at a hamfest back in 1996 and it has been my ONLY power supply ever since. It has been turned on nearly continuously since 1996 with very few breaks in between turning it off. I didn't purchase it with the intent that it would last very long at all. I can't remember what I paid for it, but it was maybe $40. It has been a workhorse with NO problems! Clean output and no issues with hash or interference from the power supply. The only wish I have is for a tad bit longer + and - posts. That's it! Great power supply!
