You got what you pay for !  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Got tired of a noisy retired server power supply and began my search for something more appropriate for my ALS-500m. I use it at home instead of mobile. I know, I should have got the ALS-600 for that but that's another story. The Ameritron needs a stiff PSU to deliver it's power. The manual quote for 80A but i've found that at 14.5V, 60A is quite sufficient to produce a clean 450w out all day long. This way the IMD is low and the amp is sleeping.Back to the PSU. After narrowing my search to this one, I discovered that it is manufactured under a few iterations (Manson and Tenma).This beast is built like a tank.The construction is first rate.High quality components inside and out.Even a very capable AC filter on the main input.I am impressed also with the electrical performance.Zero hash noise on the bands and rock-solid output under demanding loads.
At 309$ from HamCity in CA, you would be hard pressed to find a better deal for a high-current adjustable PSU.

Very Nice Design  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This supply while expensive proves you get what you pay for. Zero Hash and runs cool with the large but quiet cooling fan mounted at the back of the supply. This is a variable voltage type of supply. Very large terminals are mounted in the back where in my opinion they should be. If u open the door on the front of the supply you will find a jack for a cigarette lighter adapter and terminals for light duty connections similar to the terminals you would find on home stereo speakers ( push in and insert wire type). These light wires can be ran underneath the door so u can keep the door shut. Diamond got it right with this powerful power supply.

115 or 220 input  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have a Tokyo 350 amplifier and tried an Astron 75 Amp supply but it would trip the 115 volt breaker when turning it on. With this supply, I ran a 220 volt line with no problems and gives me 350 watts output on 2 meter CW/SSB
