This review is from: Rosewill RTK-PST - Digital LCD Power Supply Tester
Pros: Easy to use, good value for the money
Cons: no instruction manual [I deducted 1 star for this]
Other Thoughts: FYI, when testing for main power, if your power supply has a P4 or the newer 8 pin power connector in addition to the 20/24 pin main power plug, BOTH must be plugged in to the tester. Otherwise if only the 20.24 pin connector is plugged in, you will get a false FAILED warning from the tester.
In one instance, I've had the tester fail a power supply [one of those small form units in an HP Pavilion Slimline s5120f]. While the tester failed the power supply, it still works and powers up this machine. I suspect that the power supply is borderline bad. I've been using this for almost 3 years now, with good results.
