Some of those cheap PSUs have a lot of noise which causes all sorts of problems. I used one with my 1541-II which shares the PSU connector with CD32, but when the drive was connected to a C64, there was a lot of noise and interference on the screen. With an original PSU or a quality SMPS there was no problems so I ended up binning the PSU. Life's too short for bad quality stuff and in particular something as important as a PSU which could end up killing your equipment if you're unlucky.
They might seem cheap at first glance but if they're no good, then they effectively become infinitely expensive.
