Well spoken... so it's good advice to check a product careful every time (even if a buddy got a good one...).

Thanks for your insight, Bryce! I’ve got one of those as I was planning to make a psu for my 1541-II, but now I’m having second thoughts.


Would it help if the missing components were added?

Yes, you could easily add the components again and improve the situation. The only slight difficulty would be the inductors, as the value of these is quite critical, so you'd have to do a lot of measurements and maths to choose the right part. All the other parts don't have critical values (caps) or the part number is known (Diodes).
