Been on the hunt for a variable power supply today! Lots to be had quite cheaply but some do appear to be a little inferior. That said they are cheap. Lets say a 32V 10A unit from ~$100~$150 fleabay aust.

But I was looking at EEvblog and basically they said most suffer from switch on overshoot although new units, particularity the switchmode units are better. Also Instek and Mastech units are better and most other brands are copied from these.

All this said...I was eyeing off a Uni-T UTP1035, 32V, 5A unit.

Has anyone have an opinion on all these variable PSUs? Particularly from experience. I need to buy one soon so I cannot wait for one to pop up on fleabay.
