This Banggood PSU is Literally a Fire Hazard

 

How sketchy is a 3450W PSU from Banggood? Shockingly bad.

I think my friend has a similar powersupply like this, but its only 2000w for his mining rig.. Think im gonna give him a call, because its the same brand and that scares me.

The 3450 W isn't that bad to be fair. Or at least as far as 230 V 16 A outlets go.

 

Though, the soldering job in that PSU could obviously be better. And not having the switch terminate the actual AC power is horrendous of the manufacturer... As if the 90+ thingy weren't sufficiently abhorrent...

 

But I do have to say that LMG should probably invest in some basic soldering tools. Like a bottle of liquid flux, some desoldering wick, and perhaps an iron with a directly heated tip instead of the ceramic heater in a sleeve. (trust me, the difference between directly heated tips and indirect ones is night and day.)

 

Another thing LMG should probably have in the test lab is a simple 240 V 50 Hz supply, or just a proper power supply tester that can give more or less any voltage at any frequency. (or if one wants to be really jank, then a VFD + variac goes a long way as a universal "inverter".)

 

Though, personally I would test a PSU like this with some 12 V light bulbs as the load. (mainly since my electronic load doesn't do 3kW for some weird reason...)

9:51 Why not use  something like "X3 screw terminals", these are Many times safer than the wire connectors you guys use.

tbh the power supply might be the one thing I wouldn't cheap out on, I mean you can either fry your componnents, fry yourself or your whole house if it's bad... other stuff in a computer don't come with all of these risks...

Yeah for anyone running 230/240v power that's fine. For those in the UK a "rapid boil" kettle (aka not a £5 student special) is generally 3kW so this PSU isn't much different. A UK ring circuit is generally* protected by a 30A fuse (6.9kW of power @ 230V), so you could in theory run two of these without blowing the fuse. Not that I think that's a good idea of course...

 

*other circuits do exist but are uncommon - make sure to check before you do anything stupid.

Have you bought from them? No? I have and had no problems.

The name Banggood has a meaning, Bang comes from Chinese and means "good" and Good comes from English to say the same thing.

What about a name such as Beerzerker, does that indicate being drunk?

And why did you decide to single me out when everyone here is more or less in agreement these PSU's are crap?  Even the topic of the thread itself (The video) says so.
Trolling?

Linus talks about them making up their own certification, and says approximately "Shouldn't 90 Plus Platinum, if it existed, be Platinum colored?" But the "Certification" on the PSU doesn't even say 90 Plus Platinum. It says "90 Plus Platitum" ...really. Go back and look at 2:31. And I don't think Linus knows any better than the rest of us what color platitum is supposed to be.

Because you haven't dealt with the company and didn't know what the name meant.

They do not make the PSUs, only provide access to the PSU company's products.

Not worried about the name's meaning, I'd worry about whether the product is quality or crap.
The name itself doesn't change a thing about that regardless of what it means.

No, your message was about the company, not specifically about the product.

Your message was -

Banggood:
A name you can't trust. 
Frankly the name itself sounds like what they are doing "Behind the Back" of each and every customer that buys one of these.

Where does that name sounds like "Behind the back"? You were saying because of the name the product might not be good. Not whether the product, no matter where from, was of a specific quality.

Someone sounds triggered.... And I don't care.
I know Banggood is a vendor, not the actual maker of the PSU.
Thing is it's what they sell and whether if it's quality or just cheap crap.

And if they did or are the actual maker, what's shown in the vid says all I need to know.... In fact it does anyway.
Hard pass either way.
