Put another way, that would make it $100 for each independent supply, 
that's a very good price in line with the high end estimate of each 
Power Designs, plus the added features of the HP.

A key would be truly in what shape the supply is in and how much life 
is left.  Which leads to how self serviceable it can be, planning 
worse case.  At $400, and if new $18k, I estimate a factory service 
would be close to at least purchase cost.  The Power Designs lack the 
conveniences, but the basic specs are competitive while being easier 
to self service.  Buying several single units would spread the risk 
of uncertain performance and longevity over many units.
