Issued statements saying they'd compensate early pre-order victims by issuing discount vouchers and have now raised prices and lowered specs making those vouchers less valuable.

Constantly lie about lead times for product delivery.

Constantly mislead by using the word "order" rather than the appropriate term "pre-order".

When the prices went up, will they still at least honor the pre-orders at the lower prices? I was thinking about buying one from them with my unspent bitcoins, but not if they did that.

Well if you ordered and paid for your order/pre-order then they will honour it (can you imagine "I know you've waited since June, but we've raised our prices. You need to some pay more to receive your order..."?)

However you state that you will be buying one with your unspent bitcoins.
That means you currently do not have an order and if you place one, you will be paying at the new price (as that is the price you accept when you order it).

Well some are saying that this company is untrustworthy. I'm still on the fence on that one though to be honest. I'd still buy the jalapeno asic at the $250 price, but only if they'd actually deliver.

I think anybody claiming that BFL is untrustworthy should have a metal rod rammed through their skull. I'm just saying!
