Default Power Supply/motherboard testers

Any of you consider buying one of these? Especially when we experience a lot of unknown problems with PCs. I think it's a good $20 investment. Here are just a few I've seen on Newegg:


Now the question is, which one is the best?

Here is a link to this little tweezer that test circuitboard components too:


*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

Default Re: Power Supply/motherboard testers

For power supply testing, I just use a multimeter. Takes a wee bit longer, but the results out of a good multimeter are more accurate.

For testing circutboard components, such a device is not required in the PC world.
