Received a big box with a smaller heavier box rolling around inside. Filler papers were not enough to keep it put. Inside packaging was perfect with proper Styrofoam to hold it in place. Also found a lose bolt in it. I suspect the outer packing is the culprit.
The first looks kind of impressed me. Specially finding a German to usa adapter too, that is not shown in the picture, but no fuses. Over all built also looked fine. Sockets were firm enough. Not the best of the quality. Nothing is the best of the quality. Good to pass though. But some rattling noises coming form it! Opened the lid and found the main transformer missing one feet's nut and bolt - found in the box - and other 3 were very loose. Shook the SVR upside down and 3 times a washer fell down! Tightened the 3 feets' bolts and put the bolt back on the 4th one that was in a tricky place. May be that is why the assemblers left it a bit lose and in the shipping it came off? But the other 3 were lose too.
Looked at the soldering - another reviewer has comments and pictures about it - and found it not as good as I will like to but not as bad as to make me redo it. I put my iron back. I have used better products. like Stavol from Japan - servo type. I think it is a very good buy for the price. Just do inspect it and do a couple of precautions like me and as suggested by another reviewer and you will be fine.
Let's hope it do not die soon as some other reviewers has mentioned.
I need it for a 220v country and have hardly any way to really test it in NY. I had set it to 110V input for now and connected my 1200W microwave on it to 110v output. Some testing is better than no testing. First run of 5 minutes on full power did not show any thing wrong.
I may update it after some time. I need a couple of them, it is the first one.
I suspect Simran people do not red these reviews. They can easily improve workman ship and quality.
We are tacking a freezer, a fridge, and some kitchen appliances along with quite a few electronics, because good quality stuff there is very hard to find, but everything is 110volt, so need to step it down from 220 volts, just hope these will work ok on things like refrig. and freezer which need to be 24/7/365. I will go oversize with them and hope they wont overheat like some have said theirs have done.
My only complaint was the packaging from Amazon, it was pathetic. These are kinda heavy items, and they along with a plug strip were all put into one way too big box with no cushioning material at all, so they had destroyed the plug strip and had also destroyed the boxes the transformers were packed in, but the transformers themselves were ok.
I need to order quite a few more of these in various wattages, but think I will order them one at a time so hopefully they will pack them in smaller boxes with some cushioning materials in them.
Update: today it got worse, it was chattering like every minute or so, sometimes even more frequently. I took a video and will upload it as soon as I find out how. I will be returning this product for a replacement to see if I got a lemon or if this AR-3000 truly is a piece of poppycock.
