1.) The voltage sensing circuits are cheap, imprecise, and inaccurate.
2.) It is incapable of putting load on a rail; a faulty PSU may be fine with 0% load, but go out of spec and start to fail at 20% load. This tester cannot test for that.
3.) Other PSUs require at least a 1A load on each rail to function correctly, so this "tester" will show them as faulty, even if they're really fine.
Finally, this doesn't do anything you can't already do with a paperclip and a $5 voltmeter.
Thermaltake is marketing this towards people who are scared or have no knowledge of multimeters.
Really multimeters are easy to use if people are willing to set aside 15 minutes to understand.
