I agree, totally unacceptable, I wouldn't mind knowing who that dealer is.....but obviously your call. Regarding the PS, I'm still not been able to locate a simple drop in replacement, hopefully someone will update this thread with more specific info.

Seems like no one has found a replacement for the power supply for the 1U.
So should I throw the dammed thing out? What do I do with my M500? Any suggestions or advise would be appreciated. I am ignorant when it comes to these things. I just hate to see these units just sitting there and collecting dust. And I just can't afford to pay $12,000. for all new as suggested by Kscape.

I have a spare power supply that I would be willing to let go of since I just sold my last 1U.
It's used but still functional.
Let me know.

Power-Medic Power Supply Repair
Had some history here last yr I believe. The 1U power supply had overheated and melted and they were able to do the repair.
Also ask here on the forum, there are members who have extra power supplies they might sell.

Best of luck,

Also 1U’s have become very cheap lately. Look into the Marketplace here. I’ve just sold recently two 1U’s cheap! Both were sold on eBay where there are several currently for sale.

I would like to get your spare power supply for the 1U. How much do you want for it? And how do we go about getting it?
Thanks a lot

Anybody know of any replacement power supply for a 1U that will work, doesn't need to be pretty and can be external with the cables fed through etc? Just would like to get an old 1U of mine working again.

That thread talks about using a picoPSU to convert the internal power supply to an external brick.

I had found a potential alternative around the beginning of the year, but they wanted $80, it would've required some accommodation (smaller than K-OEM,) and then COVID happened (so communications got even slower than they were before.) If anyone is looking to be more adventurous I can pass the contact info along.

Found a 2 part solution that works with a 1U and the power brick will fit inside if needed or externally with the need to drill the back of the case to mount the power connector. Not the most elegant but a decent work around until a better traditional drop in solution is found.
