Plenty of power and plenty of HF noise Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
2- Needs help. (redesign/more filtering)
if it were not for the noise it generates it would be pretty decent, but in my shack it spews crap all over the bands. The noice off-set is pretty useless as the noise drifts a lot, so you off-set the noise a bit, work two stations and the noise has crept in again.
i have a smaller 35a alinco psu with the same "noise offset" feature, and guess what! It's allso noisy.
So i'm getting rid of theese and going linear.

Steer clear

Very Good Time Owned: more than 12 months.
Brought this item before reading the 1 review, brought it from a reputable dealer MS & Sons Chertsey. Prefessional and good service as ever.Also they have a high standard set for used goods, their engineers and test equipment are of the highest standard.
So test time for me, used with Kenwood TS590S,Kenwood TM231E 2 METER,Yaesu FT7800E DUAL BAND, YASEU FT-712RH 70CMS UHF.
No issues on low or high power output.
Used HF & VHF on dummy loads keyed up for 60 seconds, test also carried out with uhf rig, no issues, same tests carried out on Watson W 20AM PSU and Mydel MP SW1V PSU again no issues.
Only issue with this PSU slight hum or whine on fan motors but nothing to write home about, could be age, could be possible to rectify if you have the time, so I brought a good piece of equipment happy bunny.

no no no no no no no no Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
got it cheap, ex demo or something, to run a large amp.
paid around half the MRRP for it, wish I hadn't bothered.
it lasted less than a week, and I was SO disgruntled at it's refusal to reset after a meaningless overload, I kicked it to death.
never mind!!
