There is a long tradition of PSU slowly failing (due to capacitor decay), I had to replace mine with a pro unit after struggling for weeks to understand why I kept having issues with a hub connected hard drive till I realized that the provided voltage was not enough to power everything.
The advantage of this pro PSU was that I could use it to feed the NLSU (and its current replacement the sheevaplug), the hub (and the attached 2" hd) and also a green switch (Linksys if I remember correctly) which works on just 5v.
Also it is far more efficient than 3 cheap PSU and requires 1 power plug.
Just my 0.000000000005 cents! ;-)
