Which Access Power Supplies Do You Use?

Which brand or model of power supply do you use most often on access control?

I ask because I noticed this latest release from Securitron: AQ Series Power Supply

It looks nice, and with up to 16A models, 'autorestart', Form C relays and so on it is hard-loaded.

They also start at ~$250 street and get pretty pricey, $500+.  I do not recall spending more than $150 per power supply from vendors like Altronix, and often used cheaper distributor bargain-bin specials for access, but I don't know if that's typical?

Surprisingly, power for access has been a bit of a recent new product development hotspot with releases like Customized Access Control Cans (Altronix Trove) and various Life Safety Power cans. 

What power supply do you use/prefer?  Are you picky? Why?
