Very nice. Shame about the fan noise ...  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought it knowing that I wouldn't need 50 amps at first (I'm using a Kenwood TS-140 which draws 20A while outputing 100 watts). I'm very happy with it, it does not have any bells and whistles but does what it has to very well. The only real problem is the fan noise, which is very high. I had to open it (while looking inside, I noticed that it was very well built, with a very big transformer), remove the fan (standard pc 8 cm fan), replace it with a less noisy one, and put a 50 ohm resistor to limit its speed and thus reducing the noise). Now it's perfect !
