Default External Hard Drive Power Supply

Hi -

Tenuously on-topic, but hopefully someone can help.

I use an external 5v/12v power supply to temporarily run hard drives
during repair and tinkering. The Chinese rubbish they sell on eBay (eg
141793905523) has the quality & durability of a Kinder Egg toy. I've
had about 5 of them now, they always fail.

I would happily pay 20 for a good quality version from a reliable
manufacturer. Does anyone happen to know where something like this is

An ATX power supply? Small one won't cost much more than 20 quid. Get one
from CPC - they sell decent quality.
