I was going to come in and express some serious safety concerns about what I assumed were exposed 120V wires and a lack of a grounded chassis.... Then I realized that this is actually a 12V in DC-DC converter.
So this "power supply" will only function when you have a second external power supply.

Very nice actually for SFF systems, and having 12V input means much easier ways to find UPS solutions, even DIY kind of stuff.

Yes, that's correct. It moves the bulk of the actual power supply to an external brick that converts 110-240VAC to 12VDC. Of course, a brick capable of generating >200W DC is a seriously large brick.
