Off topic. Does anyone know how much duty vat etc i will have to pay if i order and antminer S1 from Bitmain

Thanks in advance

Someone posted that the cost declaration on the customs form was about 250 US I believe, so depending on your country ?

Australia is free for under $1000 AU, you will need to check on your own or post your residence.

I would like to add A8IM.com is a home address and has no commercial premises.

The website states they order direct from factory ( no mention of the factory being in US ).

Am sure your just paying a middle man here.

Good Luck

I'd still go with Bitmain,I've been watching their threads for a month or 2 now & am satisfied with taking the chance on their miners.

In fact I'll be ordering 2 of em tomorrow  Grin

If you can pay when you pick them up,then give a8im a try  Wink

Good luck!!!
Likewise, am happy with the product, nearly clicked the button a few times, but decided to wait closer to the 8th. A week is along time in this game.

But each to there own, there is enough info in the ant/avalon threads to make a risk/reward decision.

Ant's start shipping again from the 8th after cny

same applies to most Avalon that tend to be built to order, so expect further delays.

Most Avalon based have had production issues with poor quality control from what I have read..

Edit : Frank, you are aware of the groupbuy section I guess, most Ant/Avalon suppliers are split between there and here. Have a good read..

There are no savings, even the antminer is so close to negative ROI it is of debate @ 1.45

If there is a couple of weeks delay on shipping there's a huge chance your negative, buying btc is better than risk with an unknown.

Meeting Update:

"The main take away from the last meeting are that the first boards dev-boards, will have a left column of 8 BitFury, middle column of 2 A1, and right column of 8 BitMain." - Lead EE for the Wasp & Hive Project.

This will cut down on some of our development time to get to our prototype boards that will drop soon afterwards. Again video and pictures will be released when this board is actively working and testing.

More updates later...

3 different chips on 1 board, WTF that will be awesome, I can't wait to see that.  Grin
Will be watching this thread more closely..

@dave111223

Have you personally ordered from either company?

I've ordered from Bitmain yes; products arrived in 3 days and worked.

Have I ordered from the website that was setup last week, that using a "domainsbyproxy" whois and sells for 150% markup....no

So your suggestion is ordering from a factory in China, because domain proxy and sells 150% markup.
After checking seems there is no address from your refereed company Bitmain and they also us domain protection.
Delivery 3 days within ASIA, isn't that where your are located? Are you the Shrill?

I asked a newbie question and my point may be a little aggressive simply because all the fraud going online because people are so quick to refer someone based on "price" rather than assurance and that's what my self really look at.

Can anyone suggest a website located here in the USA that they have had experience with?

People are suggesting Bitmain for good reason.

They deliver, and they are NOT a scam and they are the best price.

Why would anyone order from an unknown entity at a greater price with no guarantee of shipping.
If you can pay on pick-up that's a whole other story.

Look through the bitmain threads for the good the bad and the ugly. It is mostly all good...

Also, installing a 7.5K resistor was very successful.  Gained 3Ghs (57-60) and error rate went down to around .34% (was 1.9% at 57Ghs).  Temps went up 4 Degrees

though. Tongue  Still this mod seems to be a very easy way to push an underperforming single/jala up to speed.

This sounds g8, any chance of a pic identifying that resistor.

R36 and R11 I think.  Will be between two of the ASICs. Should have 828 on the top.  It will be a 7K resistor.
Ok, I see R36,R11 in the photos above one for each side. Not really into SMT but think I can do this. Are these a 0402 package ?

Thanx

jammertr how long did you wait for the boards? ...if it was 3 months... i feel for you man Smiley



ordered on Sep 20th, chips sent on Sep 26th,  received Jan 21st.
Hi,
First sorry for the bad experience.
How did you sent the chips ?
What kind of transport did you choose with your order?

Why are you trying to turn this on us?

You had my chips*, and I payed for my shipping*, you expressed no problems on our part back in December or again in early January.

And I have not seen a post where you have said our orders are ready, get your shipping to collect.

It is not fair to blame us, even if some of us did not pay for shipping, the boards where not ready were they.

To imply that this is in some way the fault of your customers is damn insulting.

*It would appear that tracking by DHL does not work once packages get on Bulgarian soil, and you have ignored my requests to confirm that you where in receipt of the chips.

*At the time of my first order, I believed that you where looking for alternative shipping options as speedy was so costly, so I did not initially pay for shipping. I payed for shipping on my second order and asked you to combine shipping. I will pay you for any extra costs that you incur for this, once you send me a PM with the amount and a payment address (in BTC) as I promised to do so. In fact I insist on this. I am a man of my word and despite the poor service my honor is paramount.

NOW, would you please confirm that the correct documents have been issued as my tracking lists the parcel has not left there office in Sofia yet.

I would certainly welcome another Au re-seller, were a bit short here.

But

Its scam a day here at the moment, some verification needs to be done. If bitmain confirms this it would be great.

You can also get your ID confirmed by some more respected members here. Maybe have a chat with Beastlymac, he is in Aus I believe.

I finally got my boards, did not have enough time to test all, but what I can says for now is 3 boards consume around 400+ Watts  at 480mhz 1.45v and hash somewhere about 7ghash

I will post pictures and more info hopefully before monday.

Glad you got your order, mine is with speedy ( in sofia if u believe there tracking).

Did you get a ButterflyLabsTechnoBit  Mug with your order ?   Grin

I understand you frustration, but please do understand that all last hex16a (avalon1) orders were to be combined in 1 batch on PCB and PnP house.
It is not possible to be produced in batches of 2 or 7 or 15 pcs, or it is going to be too expensive.
On the side of customer support We have a lot to improve and We are going to.
Again We are sorry for the terrible customer service that We did or did not provide you.
We are thinking of some kind of present for all of you that will have orders shipped late.

We wish you Merry Christmas and happy new year

Martin



Smiley
And please tell us how much you paid for transport Huh?
2 EUR for packing ,maybe ?



Surely you have access to your own website ? Do I get a Mug Now ?

Further note: Just because your Main Switch or Main Isolator are rated at 100A or 200A does not mean you have that supply available.

Most Old UK and Australian domestic services will have 100A Switch Disconnectors as a Main Switch however they are fused at 60 or 80A on the supply side (in the street). Which is why Main Switches are being replaced with MCB's of a sutible rating so the supply authorities fuse will not blow ( as the supply authority have recently started to charge the customer when it does).
Yes, I suppose I should have been more specific there. The derating is for your main circuit breaker. That's interesting that in the UK there is no customer side main protection in the form of a fuse or CB. I don't imagine that's current code, but how long ago was it standard to have the main fuse on the supply side and only branch fuses on the customer side?
Well the suppliers cutout (fuse) that is sealed to prevent the customer interfering with it, is just before the metering (usually no more than .5 mtrs from the switch board) so it is protecting very little before the outgoing circuits. Really its true purpose is to protect the incoming cable (although its on the wrong side, not the best design.)  But it stops you overloading the main cable.

I haven't been in the UK for a while, but just checked a uk wholesalers website and they are still selling the Switchboards with a Double Pole 100A Main Switch so am guessing they haven't moved on there yet.

Technically the Main Switch is only for consumer Isolation, it provides a minimum gap (Air) for safe work.

Here in Australia it has been common to replace the Main Switch with an MCB, as the use of overhead lines here is common and this cabling more often than not travels some of the roof space before reaching any consumer protection, this is a very good idea.

However, (and I could be wrong here) as far as I was aware an MCB does not provide a significant air gap to be classified as a Main Switch or Dis-connector for the purpose of Isolation and safe work.

Am really interested how this pans out for Aussies, am sure the Electrical Safety Office is aware of this issue as they have directed us to remove the main link (solid fake fuse) before caring out work however this requires resealing by the supply authority afterwards..

So Technically Aussies have no safe electrical disconnection on the consumers side.

Anyway this has gone way off topic now  Grin so let me just say.

If in doubt contact an Electrician

Could you keep me informed, I maybe interested.

Currently am not sure that 0.1 BTC saving is worth the risk of going through a third party and the ship/reship delay.

Also your quite new here ( no accusations, but if you have done any private trades please pm me with details)

but please keep me informed and send details when your close to ordering, as you no timing is everything.

Am guessing shipping will be after the 8th..

397  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Announcement: Bitmain launches AntMiner solution, 0.68 J/GH on chip on: February 02, 2014, 02:13:28 AM
Things are never straight forward.

A Main Switch is just a switch, If it is rated @100A it is designed to switch 100A on occasion. (manual switching). It could possibly take double that current for short periods without problems (I would not recommend this). It is just a switch.. and provides zero protection only a means of disconnection and Isolation.

To confuse the matter further sometimes MCB's are labeled Main switch, as they are providing a means of disconnection and additional protection.

At my current location it is favorable to use an MCB instead of a main switch. I would not recommend exceeding 80% of its current rating for continuous use. Unless you want nuisance tripping.



Most domestic MCB's are type C on sub-circuits, if you are happy that you have a decent sub-circuit (short and correct cable size with few additional outlets) you can always replace this with type D if you wish to limit tripping ( these are predominantly used in industry for items like motors to get over the start surge, but maybe useful if you switch the whole rig on at the same time and your mcb trips)

More common in new installations now are combined mcb/rcd or RCCD's and in some countries RCD protection is compulsory on circuits containing socket outlets. I am not aware of any RCCD's that are not of type C without great expense. These provide an additional layer of protection by monitoring the current on the live and neutral conductors and disconnecting if there is an imbalance between them. Test them every 3 months.

Each circumstance is very different and blanket statements can be dangerous, I would not like to comment on the above case as I have never dealt with US 110V, most electricians will give advise for free in hope of further work..

If you are getting close to the ratings of your circuits consult an electrician, think about your future plans first as a sub-board would probably be beneficial to many of you guys in the US.
