    Mk3 is sold without power supply. It is powered from USB. If you get/buy power supply display on Mk3 will be a bit brighter. It does not seem to me that it is needed... I am happy, that USB does the job. What I did not like about older NI controllers is that they needed power supply. One more thing to plug in and care about...

    MK3 used to ship w/ a PSU; it no longer does. If you require or want the PSU, it is available from the NI online shop for $25 (USD). MK3 is USB-powered from the computer and does not require external power; however, connecting an external PSU increases the brightness of the illuminated components, which I found useful and necessary.

    PS - NI should offer a voucher for the PSU.
