Yes. agree with you.I really should get one. I have been thinking I need to
get one every time I get my head into anther PSU and then everything is
sorted out and the PSU seems to work fine and I forget about it. I have
been looking at the DerEE DE-5000 which looks nice and has got good reviews
as far as I can tell. What meter do you have and recommend?

That's a pity!
