From a DOA to a Good PSU 03/07/2013
Pretty much same as most reviewers said- Stable output, very quiet, inexpensive, long cables..... a very decent power supply unit.
Almost- see "other thoughts"
Like most of the players do- I tested power supply with a “power supply tester” before put it into the system. The unit cannot be turn on the 2nd time after turn off immediately. I thought I am just like some reviewers with bad experience- receive a DOA.
I was very upset, and called my bud who is a technician at Dell. He wanted me to try again.
From his experience-
Some testers design need wait till +5VSB reset (about 5 minutes) to re-test again. He suggested me test again after 5 minutes. I did, and just like he said- the PSU works.
I repeat the test a few times every 5 minutes to make sure the unit works.
Now the PSU is in my system for 2 months without any problem!
If you test the PSU with tester, wait 5 minutes before you test again.
