This one of the most valued pieces of gear I have. There are other power supplies out there with the ability to power pedals with different demands but the pedal power is perfect for probably 90% of the effects pedal users out there. It provides clean isolated and filtered power through eight individual outputs all packaged in a tough little box. I previously used the Dunlop DC brick which is great for a few pedals but once you start using an effects loop or a wide variety of pedals it can get noisy.

All the output taps put out 9volts but can also be changed via dip switches to accommodate other power requirements.
-taps 1 through 4 can be set to power the older boss ACA pedals which I believe are 12v.
-taps 5 and 6 provide higher current for pedals that require up to 200ma like the boss dd-20 and can also be set to power the line6 4 series like the dl4 and mm4
-taps 7 and 8 have sag controls to simulate the effect that a dying battery would have on a pedal.

I've used mine to power a board full of pedals without issue. By using daisy chains to hook multiple low current drawing pedals to one output you can easily power more than 8 pedals. This works great for simple boxes but it is best to keep digital pedals, especially delays, on a dedicated output to avoid any issues from under powering. There are also many different types of coupling cables you can buy if you need to power pedals with different voltage requirements. You can combine two of the 9volts to get 18v or flip the dip switches and get 24v for things like the electro-harmonix memory man. The added courtesy out on the back allows you to plug in a wall wart if you have anything that needs AC power. This box will keep your pedal board tidy and as noise free as it can get.
