They ordered the BFL RIG at 50GH/s at 30K USD. When they announced the mini-rig they split a full rig into two mini-rigs.

I can't understand why you don't read more and type less. There is a lot of useful information in the forums but you need to take your time and go slow.

But this is not the way to do business. They got the30 K and after 4 months they split a full rig into two mini-rigs and delayed the delivery.
So what if I order a Mini Rig now and after 4 months they split it in 2 Nano Rigs and so on.
Its just insane!
Please tell me that I'm wrong.

BFL delays are well documented with thousands (litterally thousands) of post on the topic.  There is nothing you can add which hasn't already been said at least a couple hundred times.  Their original product ("BFL Single") was also delayed.  If the (very real) risk of further delays is too much for you then don't order.

Before you hit "reply" I am being serious that anything you could possible think of saying right now (no matter how unique you are convinced it is) has probably already been debated back and forth ad naseum.  It would be a good idea to search and skim through the thousands of post which already covered every possible angle of the issue.

There is likely 20+ ordered (one guy mentioned ordering 6 -- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=76217.msg845633#msg845633) but suspect many don't want to reveal their expansion goals.  ;)

This thread and the singles thread only represent a fraction of actual orders.  I know of quite a few singles (> 50, not including all of my orders which I also have not reported) that are not reported in the other thread, and I know of a number of mini-rigs that are not reported here.  These two threads aren't really useful for gauging ship times on much of anything, other than your relative place in line.

Shocking that diff has been dropping for ~1 month then, isn't it. I wonder if we'll go over 2mn by Q3 then.

I disagree with your point about the threads not being useful for gauging ship times. I believe they are doing a great job of accurately measuring the actual ship times. Perhaps you mean they shouldn't be used for estimating future ship times, but it is the best measurement we have. If anyone has anything better please let us know.


Title: Re: BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: Inaba on April 20, 2012, 03:50:48 PM
But measuring actual ship times are a measurement of past performance and are already a known quantity.  Who cares that you received your unit in 7 weeks, 3 days and 14 hours?  It matters little.  The point of tracking it is to estimate future ship times, and as you said, it's not really useful for that, since only a fraction of the orders are reported here. 

Just because they got a blob of orders shipped out to people who posted here and you are "next in line" for orders that are posted here  doesn't mean there's not 75 singles ahead of you in line, that aren't reported here.  That was my point.

That's why it's called an estimate.

It's certainly better than nothing, which is what we would otherwise have.  Right now, we know that they've basically made it through all of the January orders.  We wouldn't know that if this list hadn't been created.


Title: Re: BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: Inaba on April 20, 2012, 04:15:02 PM
I'm not trying to dissuade you from posting about it.. I'm just pointing out the information is functionally useless.  So you know they've made it through the January orders... now what?  Are there 250 singles in prep before the next person "in line" on these forums gets his shipped, or is he really the next in line?  Who knows! 

It's not an estimate because the data you have is completely unrelated to the data that affects shipping dates/times.  I mean, I guess you can call it an estimate, but when you have only 25% o the available information (and I am being generous), the estimate means very little.

I mean.. I "estimate" that the block rate difficulty will be 1.75 million in 3 months, but that estimate is really meaningless, since very little of the variables are known at this point.

I guess we have different takes on what a meaningful estimate is then.  ;)

It's better than nothing, that is all I am trying to say.  If they make it through February and March orders at the same pace as January orders, then I could expect my singles to arrive near the end of May.  If they don't make it through as quickly, then maybe June or July.  But at least I have SOME idea of when I might be able to expect them.

If the list wasn't here, I would have no idea whether to expect my singles tomorrow, or 5 months from now.  With the list, I can kind of judge how quickly they are getting through the current orders, and make a reasonable guesstimate as to when I will receive my order.  And that guesstimate will only get more accurate as they start shipping orders closer and closer to mine.  It's not a 100% sure thing, like you said, someone right before me could have ordered 1000 singles, who knows.  But it's a best guess.  It's better than nothing.  It's a reasonable estimate.

Post by: tarrant_01 on April 20, 2012, 06:38:20 PM
I wasn't expecting much for this list but since someone asked for it, I decided to make it.  There is not a lot of room for estimation right now with this list, but I think the singles list provides more information especially for the April orders.  People seem to be more confident now that they are seeing the "large" amount of shipments and so they not only place an order but they make it public as well.  I'm sure the singles wait list also affects their business in a positive way.

I think the big one will be when BlackPropor's order of 50 is shipped. It'll be a good indicator to the public of how well they are handling large orders.  In reality it's no different than all of the small orders, but people view it as a huge bottle neck.

This is false. The data they have is related, being a [badly selected] sample. As the OP said, still better than nothing.

Sonny didn't give you an estimate when you ordered?  If it's still the same 12-15 (I'd assume 15) week timeframe he gave me, that'd put yours somewhere between July 30th and August 20th.

Since they are the best FPGA currently around the block when price/watts/speed is all taken into consideration (to my knowledge) it wouldn't make a difference unfortunately.  I say unfortunately because I wish there was some more efficient product building competition out there with their specs since the clock is ticking to the end of the year before rewards get halved.  Forgive me for expecting diligent customer service for our 5 figure purchases, heh.

I've only ever spoken to a "Jody" over there in customer service.  She confirmed my 4 singles so far.  Still waiting to hear how they want payment for the mini-rig or even acknowledge they received the order.

I'd like to hear from fefox or gigavps, though.  I believe their orders are due to ship in the next week or two.

I sent Sonny a email today asking for any updates, I think the last time I heard anything about delivery was for the end of May'ish.

waiting to see what the answer is..  I sure hope its SOON!  8)

Hi Garrett,

The current lead time is on the short side of 12-15 weeks. [If you order now]

Kind regards,

That's lead time, if you order now, initial orders are those placed in January for a $30k rig. They said such orders should begin shipping end of May.

Did BFL say "end of May" or "end of May 2012" ?

Huge difference.

That makes sense! The shipping time is awful because they manufacture in their sun satellite which is between Earth and Mars!

Here's a shameless plug.

Take advantage of the bitcoin rally and buy order a mini-rig today for only 2730 BTC!

The first one bought using bitcoins cost over 3000 BTC.  

Yes my friends, mini-rigs are getting cheaper in bitcoins.   :)

So here's the real question...

What kind of premium will the first Mini-Rig sell for on here?

I'm guessing 500 btc.

MiniRig cost + import tax cost + shipping cost + 3 months worth of mining amount + $1000USD

Mini-Rig, man!

This is the Mini-Rig thread, not singles!

And Mini-Rigs are quoted with 12-15 weeks lead time!

If you ordered singles, you are posting in the wrong thread.

So:

Fefox paid January.  Giga paid April.
Fefox has 0 units.  Giga has 4.

Guess we all know who will be receiving the first ASIC shipments.  How can I invest with giga's company?

I've said as much already about the cosy little setup there, was first to receive the singles as well had rack full of them when everyone else could not get their hands on them. Company wise if you like over 50% of your money invested going straight into his pocket not hardware purchased for your benefit, as all his offerings so far have had that as their main feature, go for it.

For someone with the name "Does It Look Like I Give A Fuck" you sure do take an interest in getting the facts mixed up. I was the first to purchase Mini Rigs before they were mini rigs. My original order was for TWO 50Gh/s RIG BOXES.

I purchased these long before knowing what a perpetual mining bond was and with my own funds.

I would appreciate that if you are going to constantly talk about me on the forums that you at least get your facts straight.

Produce the receipt for payment and I just might believe you. And if what you say is true you certainly now have not purchased them with your own funds they have been bought with other peoples money with the balance of them funds raised going straight into your pocket.

I asked Sonny about how many Mini's had been made, and may have got this wrong cause im kinda excited right now, but im sure he said this box was Mini Rig #9 out of a first pre-orders of 12...

Congrats Fefox. They are excellent machines and I'm sure you'll be bored with how little you need to do to run it. You'll need to use BFGminer to run it until luke-jr is done writing the updated code to make the mini rigs work with p2pool.

I have sizable bounties out to both con and luke to get it working and into cgminer.

Of course I am crazy could not have anything to do with you claiming these facts as real then providing no proof of them. Don't know about the rest of you but I can produce receipts for $50 purchases within minutes let alone a supposed $60k purchase. So put up or shut about your supposed facts and it certainly is the easiest way to prove me wrong and shut me up. But you cannot do that can you as the date on the receipt does not support your lies already told.

Don't know about the rest of you but I can produce receipts for $50 purchases within minutes let alone a supposed $60k purchase.
lol anal retentive unrepentant miser. So you think that the things in the photographs are cardboard mockups? Or what? Next thing you will tell us is that UFOs are real because you have a receipt for one. ;D

Yes I am tight fisted SOB no denying that I like to get value for my money. No I think they were purchased on a day that does not conform with the official line being spouted here. But we will never know for sure because I will lay dollars to donuts we do not have hope in hell of ever seeing the receipt being produced.

The burden of proof is yours.

The bottom line is, if you don't like it don't invest in it. Oh, and stop spreading FUD.

It is on him as he is the one claiming I have the facts wrong when he is the only one who can prove that, fairly handy the old your facts are wrong I have the proof they are but I am not going to bother proving it just claim it is so..

Here's a pic: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9542654/photos/Garr%27s%20Mini-Rig%20%3B%29.jpg

I'm pretty excited to fire this thing up, but I think I'll wait until Wednesday ;)

It was reported that as soon as the Mini-Rig is ready to ship, the buyer is contacted and asked if we wants the MiniRig shipped, or the funds transfered to an ASIC product order, and currently the MiniRig only makes sense if your country has no import tax and you have another $15k for the SC upgrade later on.

There are many customers not on the list. However, Sonny must have underestimated greatly OR there will be easily 100-200TH/s just from mini-rig upgrades when the asics ship.

Finally out of jail :-)

Date Ordered // Order # // Shipped // Quantity // User
2012-04-14 // 20 // - // 1 // tytus

I got two mails stating that my shipping deadline is August 2.

I find the list very valuable.
It can prove that people actually receive functional mini rigs
It can prove that there is a shipment schedule based on the order date
It can help BFL to fight against accusations of scam and ponzi scheme

I am also interested in future shipment timing as I may order more mini rigs before the SC version are available. When we get the shipment I will post specs.

BFL informed me that Inaba offers storing mini rigs in Kansas City to wait for upgrade, but the gave me a wrong email :-( [a wrong domain name].

Inaba can You confirm this?

"If you would like to get out of your position in a BFL mini rig, I will buy up to FOUR mini rigs at the full purchase price." This offer is not very convincing :-) I would probably by more if I don't have to wait for the shipment. The mini rig generates an income = mini rig cost in ca. 6-8 months ? So If I don't have to wait for the shipment 4 months it is worth 50% of the mini rig price :-)

Hi tytus,

BFL is coming out with an ASIC product and if you don't double down (trade in your FPGA mini rig and drop another $15k), your 25Gh 50lb box will be good for, well, to prop open doors with. Their stated delivery date is late October which means if they deliver even a month late, or 6-8 month payback timeframe is longer than when the difficulty will double or triple and the block rewards halves.

My offer is meant to help those who do not have the ability to drop another 15k to upgrade to ASIC or otherwise would like to recoup their investment before ASIC arrives.

Best regards,
gigavps

Post by: tytus on July 17, 2012, 11:34:00 AM
The BFL trade-in offer expires in 1Q 2013, so You are unlikely to buy mini rigs with Your offer before ASIC is available.
I don't believe in the October deadline that much ... but the problem is that BFL did not reply yet to my question how the SC queue is handled.
The only fair way to handle the SC queue is by taking into account not the mini rig delivery or order date but the date of payment for the SC purchase / upgrade.
=> So there is no point to buy / sell  mini rigs now from the point of view of the SC queue.

If You want the SC version fast You should pre-order the SC version now ! You will pay exactly the same amount :-)
Offers like Yours only contribute to the suspicion that the October deadline is unlikely :-)

So my offer is better. I would buy a mini rig for at least 25% premium :-)

Post by: ice_chill on July 17, 2012, 01:47:03 PM
I don't think people who ordered $15k equipment are dumb enough to fall for this "I will buy your queue". BFL has stated that before the MiniRig ships, the customer will be contacted and offered to exchange the MiniRig funds for SC Singles of equivalent value, so anyone selling the FPGA MiniRig queue is then forced to place a new order for the SC Singles which means he goes right to the back of the queue.
And with SC singles worth $15000 coming close to 400GH/s, queue here is worth more than the FPGA MiniRig will produce from now until October.

So people, don't fall for this "I will buy your queue scam"

Why is it a scam? Potentially, only the buyer loses out, but it all depends on when SC actually ships.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date

It is the SCAM because the sooner in the queue you receive the ASIC the more money you make. Buy selling your queue you miss that opportunity.

This whole situation smells like my daughters diapers. The sheer number of future variables means you really cannot possibly accurately figure out what is going to happen in 3-4 months time.

And that means that there will be losers in the big gamble. :(

Why would someone trading in a non-SC rig get a higher place in the queue than someone who pays outright? ??? They would be at the end, same as with a new order.
He's buying queue places for NON-SC rigs.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: JWU42 on July 17, 2012, 03:03:33 PM
The SC release is supposed to happen once there is an actual inventory built of all products.  I suspect this to be well into November and maybe December...

It seems BFL does appreciate that shipping these as they are built (namely Mini Rig SC) would grossly favor certain individuals so they need to release once some amount (lord knows what that amount is) is in inventory.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: ice_chill on July 17, 2012, 03:15:06 PM
Didn't BFL mention, i.e if they make 100SC ready to ship:

1/3 will go to fill new orders queue
1/3 will go to fill FPGA-ASIC exchange orders queue
1/3 will go to fill exchange queue, for people who pre-ordered FPGA but never took delivery

As you see there actually 3 queues.

Thus if you refuse the delivery of MiniRig FPGA and transfer the funds to ASIC, you are much higher up the queue then if you sell the queue and place a fresh order.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: tytus on July 17, 2012, 04:19:09 PM
Is there any official statement of BFL on the queue ? I could not find anything.

I don't worry about the position in the queue. When ASICs arrive the mining situation will be unpredictable anyway. I can jump in later :-)
I will use the time until then and enjoy the noise of the already almost obsolete mini rig :-)


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: ice_chill on July 17, 2012, 04:36:50 PM
Not exactly as I described, but almost:


1/3rd of the units will go in order priority of purchase date.
1/3rd of the units will go to trade in customers.
1/3rd of the units will go to random orders placed in the first month (6/23 - 7/23).

Both priority customers and trade in customers may benefit from random selection prior to their natural shipping order.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=89523.0 ... ok, so it is still a good strategy to get into the second queue and become a trade-in customer by ordering more (almost obsolete) equipment :-)

The actual performance is overdelivered. Instead of 50,8Ghs, I got around 52Ghs. Consumption is unknown, but Gigavps (or someone else) I believe already tested it, which is less than expected. We're testing different pools now, probably will stick to some local pool or will go solo, as even 0.7% on 2 rigs is about 6-7btc/month of loss.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: tytus on July 22, 2012, 01:24:21 PM
If I am right, 50GH is about 20 getwork requests per second. for some reason my bitcoind client hangs sometime for more than a second. I hope this does not cause more damage than the 1-2% pool mining fee.

I have an order confirmation on 17 April 2012, I am waiting for them to contact me and offer exchange to ASIC as I don't want it to ship. I wonder why they have shipped 21st April orders and not contacted me yet ?

Here is their address...  office@butterflylabs.com, which you probably already know...

Send an e-mail and start by saying "Hi Jody & Andria" then explain your situation since these are the two who catch it soon enough.  Resend it once per day.  They are swamped as fuck with e-mails.  They will eventually see yours and address the urgency.  I got put to the top of Jody's "important" list and that still only lets me talk to her once every 4-7 days.  But they will get back to you if persistent.

Because the shipment is 50 pounds they should contact you before shipping anyway.  Every person who ordered a mini-rig sounds like they're getting contacted by phone before it goes out the door.

ice_chill, the queue is fair. The first orders are conversions from a larger equipment to two mini-rigs. These were probably ordered before our single mini rig orders. I will contact them if they fail the next deadline [2012-09-02]. I see little point in bugging them with emails, because You know what will be in the reply letter anyway [ ... your order is on schedule ... ]. You could request Your order number though and check if it is below 20 [my order number].

Also, I would take the mini rig. You can make some BTC with it before somebody comes up with an ASIC and sells it (right now it makes no sens to sell because You can earn the whole ASIC development and production costs in one month of mining).

I don't want the MiniRig because I will have to pay non refundable 20% import tax, and won't have another $15k to upgrade to SC MiniRig.
I will contact them to see what order number my MiniRig is at.

I am happy to take the mini rig and pay the import tax in Poland at our Institute (http://bioinfo.pl). I can send it back to BFL when You decide You want to exchange it for the SC equipment. But You will probably find alternative offers from people who can host it. Maybe even BFL can host it. In fact I would be interested to make a deal with BFL to keep the obsolete FPGA equipment in our Institute because I can use the FPGA boards for bioinformatics applications later [we plan to do this].

I meant I want to convert it to ASIC rather than not want it at all. If you sell it you lose your queue in Line.

It was meant to ship today and I chose to upgrade, this makes my wait time exactly 13 weeks and 1 day (from 17.04.12).

I see.

What about asking Inaba to host it while you wait?
I know that's also a non-prefect solution for your situation, but that's what some people do to avoid shipping and import taxes.

Good idea, I do have a feeling that BFL want them for another endeavor as well. Wouldnt that be hard also when the hardware is so closed ? I mean the LX150 outnumbers the BFLs chips quite a lot and also a much more open platform. But maybe BFL will open up therir platform later on, would be nice. If your like maybe we should start another thread regarding bioinformatics on FPGAs.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: tytus on July 26, 2012, 03:57:52 AM
Start the thread and send a link. I am a junior member as well and I am not too familiar with this forum :-). Several people produce FPGA based solutions for mining. They should be interested in potential future applications. We have developed bioinformatics tools, but I had problems to port anything to FPGA (I even failed with the placement and routing in Xilinx ISE of the currently standard unrolled BTC mining pipeline despite trying lots of W updates and many detailed area constrains in the UCF files :-). So more experienced FPGA programmers would help a lot :-). There are some FPGA based bioinformatics products, for example Smith Waterman on Sciengines [http://www.sciengines.com/products/computers-and-clusters/rivyera-s6-lx150.html]. There are few other ideas we could discuss but I believe this will be interesting when ASICs arrive :-)
BFL seems to use Altera and these chips are apparently easier to "program". I am sure BFL will release the specs of the Rigs when they become "obsolete". But of course LX150 is a more popular platform and thus better for development.

Wow, Inaba, that's quite a deal.  You can't be making much on each mini-rig after electricity and air conditioning costs.  Now I kind of wish I'd asked you to host mine!  Oh well...At least I get to physically see and touch them.

I guess it might have to do with whether the freight companies they deal with operate in your city.  The one they used to ship mine had a facility about 3 miles from where I live.

I will consider this depending on when mine is read to ship.  It's an attractive deal if the time between mini-rig and asic shipments is short, and apparently asics are on schedule for october.

Hi Guys,

Is it okay to ask how did you guys pay BFL? It seems like this rig is way too much for bankwire or BTC?

And do you pay upfront or pay when they are done creating your order and ready to ship?

I just tried ordering 2 singles and payment was via PP (cant say the whole thing, It's a bad word.) and nothing happens.

It says on the page that I am all done. Does that mean they will email/charge/request funds when they are done creating the order and ready to ship?

Thanks a lot... and I am sorry if I am asking this in this thread. I know it is supposed to be a wait list, but I think I can get some answers from the entire group of people who already bought/ordered the mini rig.

Sorry again and thanks a lot.

This is the minirig thread; however....
Payment is up front.
You pay to be put in line.  Then they will hopefully ship later.
Yes, they will send a pay request when they get to it.

However, 1 1/2 weeks ago I received an email asking me whether I want it converted into a SC miniRig, hosted by Inaba or delivered.
I chose the delivery option.

This is pretty shady.  I didn't bribe anyone though, just agreed to pay the $300/month which I think is very reasonable :)  However, Inaba hasn't actually picked it up yet and set it up for mining, so I could be in the same situation as you guys.  Hopefully BFL has the hardware they claim to have ready.

As of right now, I am in the same boat you guys are.  I pick up the rigs when BFL tells me they are ready.  There is no back room deals or anything unusual going on.  I have no pull or sway beyond what anyone else does as far as rig delivery goes.  Hell, I'm still waiting on *my* rigs to be ready.  If there was any line jumping, you can be sure it would be to get my rigs mining.

We're not there yet. I was querying you before we got to your order so we could be ready

They ask about shipping preferences before they are actually ready to deliver the product, which makes sense.

         that explains it. You didn't jump the line at all - I just got my tracking number today, estimated delivery date is Saturday 8-11.
I don't know whether FedEx really delivers on Saturday, though.

If my doctor tells me on Monday, after viewing the ultrasound images and blood work done on Friday, that I have terminal liver cancer or something in that ballpark, the miniRig is of no use to me, and I can sell it to you for what I paid for it.

I would pay you +$1000 on any serious offer you get if you do decide you will sell.

I see a possible auction as I would also be interested; however, I would be more interested in the test results.

Best Wishes.

Anybody want to sell 1 mini rig to me?

Please PM me.. what are your conditions.. (:o no weird conditions please)

Located in Sacramento, California

:)



If my doctor tells me on Monday, after viewing the ultrasound images and blood work done on Friday, that I have terminal liver cancer or something in that ballpark, the miniRig is of no use to me, and I can sell it to you for what I paid for it.
(I'm not kidding - I wouldn't be kidding about topics such as this one.)

Of course, I sincerely hope that the tests show that I do not have any kind of cancer, and no liver cirrhosis, either.
Wish you all the best man. If you do need to sell the rig, do it on eBay  ;D

I am sorry about this... inspector..

I'd rather pray for ur health than having a mini rig...

that's all i have to say...

I'm happy to say that both the blood test and the ultrasound images did not show anything wrong with my liver.
The excruciating abdominal pain  :'(  when coughing, which I experienced on Friday, remains unexplained, however.
Today, the pain was less severe - but not completely gone, either.

My miniRig is scheduled to arrive tomorrow (Tuesday).
Today, AT&T installed a Uverse line in my third mining office, which will be dedicated to the miniRig.
(My other two mining offices contain 10 BFL singles, each, but about 2 months from now, they will host 12 and 13 Singles, respectively.
Once I have traded the 25 Singles and the FPGA miniRig for two ASIC rigs, I will go back to renting only one or two offices, most likely two.)

Thanks for all the good wishes!

Plug in to USB, install and run cgminer, shouldn't be any more complicated than that.

Three weeks ago (there may be an updated version out now?), the auto-tune package hosed about 10 of the FPGAs in my two rigs.  Sonny sent me two firmware packages to load manually, which fixed the issue.  I also found that updating the firmware on one FPGA while the rest are mining almost always resulted in a bad firmware update, requiring me to do it over several times until I realized what was wrong.

Here are the two firmware packages Sonny sent to me.
https://www.box.com/s/e8cd6a2e651cc87b604c (https://www.box.com/s/e8cd6a2e651cc87b604c)

What I did in the end was to use EasyMiner to view the properties of each FPGA and identify which ones were using the 1320 MH/s firmware.  I updated each of them to use the 1500 MH/s firmware and then mined with them for a while to see if errors showed up.  All but one had a 20%+ error rate, so I flashed them back to the 1320 MH/s firmware.

The Mini-Rig FPGAs don't throttle when there are errors, so I guess it was worthwhile since I got one running at 1500 MH/s with only a 2% error rate in exchange for a 13% speed increase.

The number of modules has been reported anywhere from 17 to 20, and it seems that some are slower than expected so more are added to make sure the device as a whole performs as advertised.

after downgrading to 1300MH/s all modules perform as expected. The hashrate reported by cgminer did not change much but the hash rate reported by the pool increased :-) In other words the "U" value is very important (something like "luck-rate" which should be ~ 100% [see slush pool / ztex driver] is missing in the statistics). I guess the 1500MH/s firmware causes the device to miss many shares (50%-80%) without reporting hardware problems.

I also have to admit that with "-S auto" I did detect 2 more devices (not shown) but these had communication problems, very low hashrate  and 100 times smaller utility (U) than the other devices, so I don't use them. I was not able to detect them with easyminer.

So, this is your unit?  I guess the list needs to be updated.
Probably means the JWU42 also received his.

Just trying to figure out the timeline.

U:344.2/m (found shares per minute) seems to be the important number. divided by seconds in a minute (/60) multiplied by the number of hashes needed to find a share (*2^32) and converted into Giga (/10^9) I get a hashrate of 24.6 GH/s. This is slightly below the advertised speed but still acceptable.

DOn't use the auto-tune package - just sayin'

Came from BFL with 4 units at 1500 and now only have 1 that will run 1500.  The other 3 bad flashed when the USB hub died and had to start all over.

So like a few others it seems I end up with a rig just making 25.2

18 x 1320 = 23.76 Gh/s
1 x 1500 = 1.5 Gh/s

25.26 Gh/s total  :-\

JWU42,

Please run it for a longer period [10-30 min:-)] and show the result. Now Your 1.5GH/s unit has lower output than the other 1.3GH/s units. the total U: (right top, 346.6 => 24.8GH/s in my case) is the most valuable parameter.

Tytus,

I don't need to run it longer when units are showing a U of ~1.  Something is wrong.  I have seen it before and confirmed it with Sonny - the reason he sent me the "good" 1320 FW.  The FW is specifically the 1320 FW from the auto-tune package.  This is NOT the same FW that the units are shipping with...

With respect to the 1500 unit with a slightly lower U - yes - over a 60-90 minute duration it foxes itself.  In that instance we are talking a ~2% difference.  With the borked 1320 units it was 50% and worse.

Current U is 350.4 after running about 8 hours.


Title: Re: ["WAIT LIST"] BFL Mini-Rig Order Date/Ship Date
Post by: tytus on August 20, 2012, 11:22:01 AM
I was only wondering about the performance of the 1500 unit and whether it make sense in my case to test if any of my units could run at this speed.
In any case Your total 350.4 shares/m (25.1GH/s) is a good result.

Don't close it. It is still interesting to know that somebody received a Mini Rig. This means that SCs are not shipped yet.

Grats! :)  I know what that excitement feels like.  I asked BFL for the name of the freight company.  After Googling their contact info, I was able to go pick up my mini-rigs at the freight facility about 5 hours before they would have been delivered.

BFL Really needs to learn how to package things a bit better, and some threadlock wouldn't hurt either... three of the boards in mine were totally loose and floating around the case half way across the country. I was really surprised when I reassembled the thing and all 20 boards showed up and mined as they should. Yes, 20 boards :D

The USB hubs and mess of wires inside are pretty funny, and really shows the small-business side of BFL haha.

20 boards :-) Some people are luckier than others :-)

I personally don't mind the cables. It shows that BFL was under extreme time pressure and I am happy to get an unfinished product sooner in this particular case/race.

Even though I was never listed in the list properly, i ordered my minirig 8/3 and received it yesterday, 9/21 when it went live in josh's kc datacenter.  

Edit: corrected date.

BTW, I am just loosing one of 19 units in the rig. There are 2 10-port USB hubs in the box that have a power plug but are not powered. I did not have problems with the rig 1 month ago but now I was not able to upload any firmware on few units ... after putting some load on the USB (uploading firmware) the USBs die, the easy miner crashes and the PC discovers the units under new IDs again. To upload the firmware I had to disconnect other units from the USB, connect only one unit to the PC and upload the firmware.
After 2 days of operation one unit disappeared again. We will probably have to add external 5V power to the hub or modify the cables that go to the fake front panel display to provide power from the power supply to the USB hubs [the hub with 9 units handles the load if only one rig is on the PC, but the 10-units hub starts having problems]. I hope the rig will be still fit for ASIC replacement :-)

Even though I was never listed in the list properly, i ordered my minirig 8/6 and received it yesterday, 9/21 when it went live in josh's kc datacenter. 

what?
I tried order mini rig on 8/2,and paid in full,but they sent me a email,said they don't accept mini rig order anymore,
and want me pay another 15000 for mini rig sc or refund the money
that's unfair!

uck
Ordered: 8/3/2012
Quantity: 1
Shipped: ~



I was wrong, it wasn't 8/6 it was 8/3.  So maybe they didn't tell everyone that they weren't building anymore minirigs, and someone took my order, but someone else said no to your order... ???

Since the list is done and they aren't taking orders for Mini-Rigs any longer, I'm going to lock the thread.
