Recommend a power supply tester

I'm curious as to what people are using for power supply testers. I know you can always use a multimeter, but I'm more interested in ps testers specifically. Who uses one? Would you recommend it? What would you buy instead? Thanks.

*Dang! I did it again. Wrong forum. :( Can someone please move this to the Questions forums? Thanks a bunch.

I use the Thermaltake tester. I don't think they still make the one I use. My guess is they are all simalar in function.

I've never bothered in my years of builds and tinkering *shrug* Just buy a good name and you're good to go.

@AJ - I agree about making a decent initial investment. I always give the PS plenty of thought. But I'm concerned with troubleshooting/repairing PC's. I know how to swap out a ps, but I don't always have one on hand. Hence my inquiry. :)

Gotcha. I've used a multimeter to test the voltages coming out on occasion. +/- 5% on the 3.3V & 5V and +/- 10% on the 12V (aka 3.13-3.46, 3.75-5.25, 10,8-13.2).
