The Dr. Power from Thermaltake is the fastest and easiest way to check your power supply’s health. Designed for ATX 12V 2.0 power supply (backwards support earlier version power supplies), Dr. Power allows you to quickly and easily test +3.3V, +5V, and +12V voltage output. It works perfectly with Molex connectors, P4, floppy, SATA (+5V/+12V), 20-pin or 24-pin connector, and uses green LEDs and beeps to let you know the testing result. If the power output is working, the LED will light and you’ll hear a sound. If the power output fails, you won’t see the LED light or hear any distinctive sound. Built-in load generates steady output.

1 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

Pros: Convenient, small form factor, connectors for enough connectors to ensure all PS output voltages are tested.

Cons: Can't be depended upon. Frequently tests bad power supplies as being OK. Owning this as your only tester means that you're going to have to incur the extra time and labor to manually swap out the suspected PS on every dead computer that comes through the door in order to confirm whether or not it truly IS defective.

Other Thoughts: I used to consider Thermaltake to be one of the "can't miss" brands. Not any more. I have to replace this unit with one that works and can be relied upon, but I assure you it won't be a Thermaltake.

3 out of 5 eggsBetter than nothing

Pros: If you just need a reality check this tester can detect a badly failed P.S. But don't try to use it for anything else! In retrospect I should have purchased one of the slightly more expensive models. One that has digital displays.

Cons: Connectors are very hard to work with. I can't connect the SATA and the 4pin Molex connectors at the same time.

Other Thoughts: Oh well, live and learn.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: It works. Beeps when the PSU is powered up.

Cons: "The proof of the pudding is the eating" I've had PSUs test good, but won't power a computer.

Other Thoughts: You do not need the -5v rail for most modern systems. I usually ignore the -5v light

3 out of 5 eggsUse for a quick test only

Pros: Great for a quick test of new power supplies before you plug them into your system, even though it's rare you could avoid some potential damage.

Cons: Won't tell you if your power supply can't keep up with your current hardware or diagnose more advanced problems.
Doesn't provide line voltages or simulate a real world load on the power supply. But if you want something like that, then you have professional level needs and won't be using this product.

Other Thoughts: If you think your psu is struggling try looking for a program that monitors MB voltages, although they are not very accurate but can still be used for an indicator if the voltage level is erratic.

3 out of 5 eggsSaw them coming

Pros: I got this locally tried it and realized right off the bat this thing is for newbies.

Cons: First off power supplies show their weaknesses under stress or load. 100% of the time a truly bad PS won't even turn on when they are de-cabled from the motherboard and you short the ground to the turn-on lead (that is all this thing does with some led's). When you have computer problems that come and go, are hard to track, or sometimes it starts sometimes it doesn't, this is due to the loading condition on the power supply being weak or about to fail. You cannot use this device to test this condition because it doesn't put a load on the power supply.

Other Thoughts: The guy that said worthless is right, a tech should know how to jump a power supply to turn it on with out using a computer. That is all this thing does. For those of you that don't know how, do some research on the web and save yourself some money. If you trying to impress a customer I hope they're REAL DUMB. The PCI card test tools are so much better than this, they give you a hex code that can tell you more about what is wrong or is going on than anything like this can. What a waste.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: None.

Cons: I have had 2 power supplys fail since I bought this device. The Thermaltake A2358 Dr. Power Tester said they were good in both cases. Why can't I give it zero eggs?

5 out of 5 eggsOne Handy Little Device

Pros: Have used twice in paying jobs thus far and was immediately able to determine/rule out problem. For $xx bucks, you cannot beat it!!!

Cons: None so far....

Other Thoughts: Very simple to use - if you are just learning, do not be afraid of this item since it is not complex at all.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works
Seems to be sturdy
High Quality plugs

Cons: the price

Other Thoughts: These things don't have to cost this much. A good power tester shouldn't be more than $5-$8. I prefer the TT brand for lots of products so I'm not absolutely torn up over the cost.

5 out of 5 eggsINVALUABLE TOOL

Pros: THIS TESTER HAS ALREADY SAVED ME TIME, MONEY & FRUSTRATION, BY LETTING ME DETERMINE EXACTLY WHERE A SYSTEM IS FAILING.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I WISH I HAD PURCHASED THIS A LONG TIME AGO. HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS HOW MANY ITEMS I HAVE THROWN OUT, BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WAS DAMAGED.
