There are five main suppliers listed on Alibaba selling crypto mining hardware. Has anyone dealt with any of these companies before? So far, none of them have been willing to agree to use trade assurance (escrow) which is a red flag to me. I have not had such problems buying other stuff off Alibaba. Can anyone vouch for any of these companies? Or, even better has anyone visited one of them in person?

Here are some links.

i'm also struggling through the list looking for PSU.....my choices seems to be;

1. Bitmain PSU - slightly underpowered ?

2. Alibaba list - unknown quality ?

3. Centrix - used server PSU + breakout boards => good quality but a little pricey.....

any other suggestions...

All of these companies claim to do some part of the manufacturing. It looks more like resale. If they would follow through with the trade assurance service program then it would add some security over buying direct. I am curious if anyone here has dealt with one of them or been to their shop.

I was just looking for exactly this topic,
I have just sent an e-mail to Bit-winkor who claim to have a massive mining farm in Chengdu, Guangdong. The stuff for sale on their website looks mostly like Bitmain brand.
They have some in stock miners and also some pre-orders for new equipment on their site which made me smile and cast my mind back a cpl of years.
They offer a hosting service which suits me as I cant be arsed with all of the cable connecting, minersitting and troubleshooting anymore. If they can TAKE MY MONEY and the equipment can be up and running same day, makes sense to me. 
I wanted to ask if anyone has bought from them or better still used this hosting service, they go under the name of "SEGREE"
I will report back with any e-mail response.
cheers,
kev

yeah scam master, scammed those chineses  good once, if you dont they will do it!

i would say a bit risky, they are re-re resellers, there plenty of hands between, and they will send you a broke one if they have a broke one Wink

Keep in mind that Alibaba is pretty much the chinese version of eBay - they're nothing more than a marketplace.

Bitmain makes *2* power supply models now, but the low power one is 220v only, the high power one is 220 for full capacity 110 for about half.

Try checking in the marketplace here for some of the "breakout board" suppliers like sidehack or jabberwock.

It looks like the dealers do. In addition I am confused by the too close arrangement of the cards from each other. This can lead to overheating. Alarming as the lack of prices. It seems to me that it is better to collect the farm itself. It will be cheaper.

Buy with aliexpress is always an unpredictable result. I had both, good and bad experience. I would say, it's kind of lottery

There are quite a few "buyers protection" and things, would we be covered for non-delivery or faulty product?

Or isn't it worth the paper it's written on?

We are looking to expand out farm and have our eye on a few pieces.

Wow, they deleted their reply thread to me somehow and changed the listing to Western Union or Moneygram only.

Edit: They got back to me and I am seeing if a deal can be made through trade assurance. Will update later on.

Trade assurance is an escrow service that is either pre-shipment or post-shipment. The post version gives you 14 days after receiving the item to file a claim if it is not as described. I have not filed a claim before but that's the idea anyway.

That seller never responded once I said no to moving the transaction off of alibaba. Likely scam. All of the similar listings were the same.

I messaged plenty of sellers on there regarding the RX cards, no reply.

Same goes for the x11 and Scrypt miners that show up too.

Initially I thought scammers, but surely a scammer would at least reply?  Grin

Managed to source cards locally for a good price, so not an issue now.
