If you are a studio guy or a hobbyist, this plug makes a lot of sense. While its kind of pricey for what it is and I saw comparable "knock offs" for the price range, it just didn't make sense to risk my $$ ME-70 for a little price difference. And now I know I have MF and Boss to stand behind me stuff.
Its a plug...
This is what scared me a little. I really didn't want to have to buy batteries for my ME-70 and "compatible" adapters scared me so dispite what I read that the quality was poor I bought it anyway. After examining it closely I can say it appears to be made about as well as any other adapter I own, if not better. I have to say I am not a gigging musician; more of a studio guy, so perhaps in a road scenario it doesn't stand up as well but that could be said about anything, really.
There are 2 reasons to get this:
1. Never have to buy batteries again
2. If you use it with the ME-70 (and probably any other pedal), it shuts off the device once you cut power to it. This means you don't have to unplug the input jack. I have it hooked up to a rack mounted "rack oft switches" so I can turn it off with a quick flip. I hated the fact hat I had to plug and unplug the input chord all the time. Again for a gigging musician this is much less of an issue. Chances are you would want the battery advantage for the cordless point.

I generously rated the PSA-120S Power Adapter 2 stars only because of its slim design and its power strip space-saving ability.
These adapters do not last! I have already purchased 4 replacements, and they all have malfunctioned the same way -- the wire develops a short where it comes out of the plastic casing. In fact, one of the two last replacements was defective (in the same way) right out of the box!
Its also worth noting that I have not been out gigging with these adapters and they have never left the basement studio, and so they have not been subjected to any rigorous set-up or breakdown activity and they still malfunction -- I would probably need to buy them by the case if I were out gigging!
In my opinion the PSA-120S are poorly manufactured, they are not dependable, and I would not recommend them to anyone! They're fine while they are operating properly, but unfortunately that's usually not for too long!

          The Snark adapters work as well for less money but this has a few advantages:
          - LED on wall wart to let you know the thing has power and is working
          - longer cord
          - RF filter on cord, although I've never had a problem with the Snark adapter picking up radio stations/CBers etc, this is added protection...

                This was purchased as a gift for my grandson back in August of 2014 for Christmas along with a Boss Digital Delay... The power supply did not work! I was very disappointed, but Musicians Friend made good on it by sending a brand new power supply to my grandson's house in Connecticut. I live in Pennsylvania.... Musicians Friend is my hero and they made good on a defective power supply which Boss should have caught! Buy from Musicans Friend again? You bet!!!!
