Personally, I'm using the Ameritron ADL2500, which is 4 hefty resistors
in a case with a fan. I modified it so it automatically switches the fab
to reduce the noise.
No leakage, no corrosion, no mess if I drop it or I kick it. Much
lighter. No dangerous oils, and my shack doesn't smell like a chip shop
when I'm doing some testing.
