    Is there any danger in buying a used power supply? Like a used PP2+ or Iso-5? The power supplies have been checked to be functioning properly, but is there a lifespan on these things that I might be approaching buying used? I really just don't know how much of an issue a used supply might/might not be.

    Any advice appreciated :)

    I've bought and sold 3-4 PSUs, with no issues. The key thing that I would verify is that it comes with all the cables that you would expect. Also, before you rig everything up, you should double-check that the dip switches aren't set to some random setting, as they could very well be different than factory settings.
