Smaller than the meanwells and meanwell knockoffs
Size: 9.5x3.5 could shave off an inch if you took off the hook and power cord bracket thing.
Is that PSU brand new?  How much it cost each?  Where do you get it from?

I have used the DPS-1200FB and they made for a pretty clean and reliable install.  At the time I was getting them used off ebay for $20-30 each and I added a MEGA breakout board for around $20 each.  The nice part was that ONE of these could power both sides of a F16v2/v3 at 30a each ... with power to spare .... and the size is pretty small and compact.    I did not have to use 220 power on the ones I got, regular 110 worked fine and I used heavy duty PC supply cords from monoprice ($2.xx each).   However, I think the meanwell or meanwell clones $20) are pretty hard to beat for the price and don't require a special breakout board.  I've even used the meanwell clones from amazon and they worked fine.  I also used a bunch of ATX adaptors (bitcoin miner boards) with ATX supplies (I had) and Wago 222 (s) ... and that solution works fine, but its a little messy with all the wires from the ATX supplies.   Note: since these server supplies seem to be used for bitcoin miners a lot -- they seem to cost a LOT MORE lately, more let $70-80 each (shipped/ebay) which doesn't seem like a good deal.

I bet you get 1200 watts max out of it if you plug to 220 AC outlet such as dryer outlet.  It use less Ampere with 220 AC.  With 120 AC you only get 900 watts max.
