Default Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

That "Duro" might be good for 200W: wimpy input bridge rectifiers; 330uF input lytics; lightweight heatsinks; small main output transformer; small output inductor. Somewhere around 200W-250W it would probably become a combo PSU-nightlight ... briefly.

Power Supplies should be boring: No loud noises, no bright flashes, and no bad smells.

There is no right.

To kill personal responsibility, initiative or success, punish it by taxing it. To encourage irresponsibility, improvidence, dependence and failure, reward it by subsidizing it.
