  • I don't believe the issue is regulation, it would seem the China brands use a cheap version of filter capacitor. I've had one just like this fail that was powering an ext h.d. after being on for 24/7 for about a year. The output caps fail causing poorly filtered DC on the outputs. If you are lucky, the ext HD and board just stop working when the supply fails. If you intend to keep these powered up 24/7, the caps can be replaced with far better ones if you are up to cracking the case open to reveal the parts. Caps would cost about $5.00 from Digikey. Search Lacie supply on youtube for instructions that show how this is done with similar supply.

No public wish lists :(
