FEATURES • -12, 3.3, 5, 12 volt supplies @ 1.25 amp • 1.25 amp polyfuses with reset on each power rail • Indicator LEDs show that each rail is working • Power good and enabled indicator LEDs • On-Off button and control circuit • Optional load resistor included but NOT soldered • Open source (CC BY-SA) Note: A 9 Watt load resistor is included but not soldered to the board.

Well, for 15US$ you get a breakout board with a switch and polyfuses to protect your PSU and projects, its a good cost for use.

This is a 20 pin interface, but i dont know of any PSU's (from the past 20 years as long as they followed ATX specs) without the removable 4 pins.if you feel like you will be changing out the supply cable often, screw down the plug to the board, its only held in with the hefty solder connections.get yourself a pack of nylon standoffs, and an old DVD/CD case, and you will be able to mount it to something that will prevent shorts on the bottom and give other mounting points (see picture).i would however like higher values of fuses on all rails (at least 3A-5A).

There are nice built-in fuses instead of the bus fuses that some other boards use.

The tapered neck on these screws would put continuously increasing outward pressure on the screw hole as I drive them in but it didn't break the board.I had a pile of ATX PSUs to choose from, so I used one that doesn't require a minimum load to get it to turn on.

If yours requires a minimum load then you can solder on the optional load component.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this computer power supply based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this computer power supply now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Seeedstudio (seeed studio) has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. This computer power supply has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This computer power supply has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this computer power supply more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $34.90 $13.80

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from May 7, 2020 to May 20, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this computer power supply was $34.90, and the lowest price point was $13.80. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 6.83% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $23.97 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Make sure seeed studio is a brand you can trust

seeed studio is a fairly popular brand among other computer power supply brands. But I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for the cheapest product

I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: EVGA, Corsair, and Apevia. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, then don't look further! this is your product! Among its alternatives, it's the cheapest!If you're looking for a computer power supply with best reviews, a product from EVGA gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from EVGA I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
