Agreed. I have a "Kill-a-Watt" unit that measures total AC draw in  
both watts and VA, and will measure the power factor as well. The  
results can be quite educational, and the unit is pretty cheap ($25US  
in the USA).

Of course in order to measure your power supply performance you first  
have to buy the PS, so unless you have the ability to return it when  
you discover it is crap the numbers are only of intellectual  
interest :-)
