I recently went on a hunt for a new power supply, because I needed about 2 amps for my new project, while my home made ones
could only deliver 1A. Since I'm on a budget, the choices were limited to either old equipment or cheap new equipment,
so I ended up with a list of old HP/Agilent power supplies and a bunch of Chinese supplies like the Korad 5005P and
the Rigol 832 in the other camp.
I have to say that the most appealing one was the Rigol 832, but being such a big beast I quickly ruled against it - my bench
is not wide enough for it to fit in such a way that I could comfortably use it.
From my new power supply I wanted current limiting with mA resolution, digital display, over current and over voltage protection.
On top of that, I wanted it to be programmable so I can automate various tests. This left me with only a handful of choices
and in the end, the only one standing was the Korad 5005P, however due to expensive shipping and high bank fees (could
only pay by bank transfer), I had to reconsider.
