Only one complaint but I like the unit  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Seems to be built OK compared to some other MFJ products I own with bad soldering, leaky enclosures,rough edges on metal and lights burning out. Only comment is the back plate. The mounting holes are right under the DC supply cable on one side and ground screw on the other side. I took the back plate off and turned it "upside down" with problem solved. While I had the back plate off, I looked inside and it appears to be constructed fairly well. This unit replaces a 20 year homebrew DC distribution system. I think it will suffice for another 20 years if not longer!

Works great  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had this for a few years. No problems at all, I use banana plugs to plug in other itemns as I need them. Highly recommended.

Why does this thing blow my radio's fuse???  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Oh yeah, it came from MFJ wired BACKWARDS!!!

We bought two for a communications van we were putting together. One worked perfectly...the other would blow the fuse on any radio we used. A quick check with a VOM gave a reading of -12VDC. HUH? Then we placed both units side by side and it became obvious..the red supply wire was going to the BLACK binding posts!!!
