Title: Lead time on current products?
Post by: DareC on June 24, 2012, 05:35:38 AM
I just ordered a BFL Single (the FPGA one, not ASIC). What kind of time am I looking at before getting it?

BFL Hasn't given any information about the lead times for the FPGA, there are no threads which go over the lead time. If you search, you won't be able to find any information either.

We as a community are here to help. We have several investigators currently dispatched to BFL headquarters, they will be arriving within the hour, though high winds may delay the drop from the aircraft.

You can have my Single right now for $1000 if you are in UK.

You can check this thread to get some idea of how long it's taking.

I'm not sure why you would order an FPGA single now. If you have the money, I would also order an ASIC single using the exchange program. You can mine on the FPGA till the ASIC is ready to ship. If you don't have the money, I would see about cancelling the FPGA order and getting some of the Jalapenos. You can get four of the them (14 Gh/s) for the price of the single (less than 900 Mh/s). Sure, you will have to wait longer, but the investment makes more sense IMO.
