Quite often the quality of a power supply can be determined by its weight. Heavy power supplies are generally of better build quality and on the whole perform better.
In addition to the weight, another way to determine the quality of a power supply is to take a look at its internal components. Generally power supplies with large capacitors and heatsinks are likely to perform better than units on the opposite end of the scale.
I was most impressed with the number of heatsinks cooling things down, and also that PCP&C had gone to the effort of using thermal interface compound on the heatsinks to enable maximum heat transfer.
I am pleased to say that the Turbo-Cool 1kw DOES indeed have adjustable pots for controlling the voltages on all of the rails.
If you look at the circuit board just behind the pots (I was unable to get a picture) and you will see that PCP&C have printed what each pot is responsible for adjusting which takes the guess work out of changing your rail voltages.
