RS didnt have the 1amp power supply in stock, but they did have a 1500mA for a few bucks more, so I bought that instead. You also need to purchase a tip unless you want to cut the wire. I bought the tip, one end plugs into the power supply, the other is bare wires for $2.99, so now I don't have to destroy the power supply. Works great. I don't notice a yellow tint and I don't even really see the touchscreen green stripe running down the side that people have been complaining about. It must be pretty subtle because it looks fine to me.
Van Nuys isn't hellish, it's the drive over the Sepulveda pass, especially during any type of traffic.
