Most of these PSUs are by the same OEM, though I don't have personal experience of this specific one. Be wary that despite 2.5A or 3A labelling, you do still get the infamous yellow lightning bolt of underpower warning with most of them if you have any USB peripherals on your Pi. I've been getting these ones at $3 each: https://www.ebay.com/itm/5V3A-Mic...3082624704 - and although they're good enough for average uses, they're definitely not at the high end for power-hungry systems. If you have a yellow lightning bolt problem, these are not the PSUs that will solve it.

Related to the lightning bolt issue. I dealt with it with my Pi Drive (usb HD to use instead of SD card), the issue turned out to be the cable. Western Digital sent me a higher gauge usb cable and it solved the problems.

True. And these power supplies have a built-in cable. It's not possible to swap in a better one.
