Pros: -Easy to use
-Blue readout is easy on the eyes
-All voltages are displayed in simple format
-Aluminum build is suprisingly sturdy
-Alarm beeps are audible, if a tad bit annoying
-Packaging comes with a nice voltage table
Cons: -Be sure to have multiple psu's to test when you receive this tester!:
-Between the different power supplies the voltages should never share alarms on the same values. For example: the -12v value should never be HH or LL between different psu's. Could be the sign of a faulty or flawed tester!
-Alarm beep can become annoying
-Feels as if you're going to break it when removing 20/24 pin or molex, but just be smart!
Overall Review: Fantastic item other than the tester itself failing!
Personally had the problem with it the first time, RMA'd and got a perfect one.
Pros: -Tester was easy to read
-Easy to use
-Nice voltage chart on the back of packaging
-Blue readout screen is easy on the eyes
-Beeping alarms can be annoying but are necessary
Cons: -Not completely idiot-proof:
Was originally having a problem with my semi aged computer where it would power on and then power off after about 5 seconds. Read massive forums and troubleshooting guides, which led me to the purchase of this tester, which told me everything was well and good, all except for my -12v value, the tester was reading HH, meaning well over the accepted range. So i bought a brand new Seasonic 750w 80+ gold psu thinking mine was bad & it was time for a new one. Immediately testing the PSU out of the box with this tester came up with perfect readings on every value, all except for the -12v value again, HH and a loud beeping that haunts me still! Needless to say i then realized the tester was faulty =/
Overall Review: RMA'd & the newly received one worked perfectly.
First time RMA'ing something from newegg after 5 years of purchasing, glad it was on something cheap, but wish it hadn't cost me a new psu!
