    Going out with a literal "bang" (or several)? Yep, I wholeheartedly support this suggestion.


    Though I already see why you won't like it - dangerous to the equipment...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Even though I only registered on the forum last year, i've been reading your excellent reviews for the better part of a decade and have found them to be some of the very best. I wish you the best on your future endeavors.

    Isn't it mostly just the power meter that it tends to kill? Using a cheap Kill-A-Watt or something instead of the fancy meter should take care of that.

    Or a review of a DC ATX power supply might be fun, for the solar powered mining rig... or maybe a switched mode car battery charger

    I agree. Let's see if we can find the worst power supply ever made (besides the Bestec 250W).

    Well, the "LPSW" did get rather close, with 3V, or 3000mV if you prefer, of ripple on the 12V rail and all...
