PFFt you didn't buy chips did you? Did you? Same shell game. Quite a few good people are still basically screwed over from what Avalon pulled with the chip buy we all know that as the truth. BFL AVALON now HF? Man I really can't wait for a company that doesn't pull the BTC switcheroo on people.

^^^

I can't see the image the above user posted, but I'm guessing it's some sort of reference to the sexual preferences and proclivities of HashFast employees. I could be wrong though.



LOL!

--------------

I sure hope they do not go all BFLAVALON style on those asking for legit refunds. I can't imagine if they are serious about developing this business longer term they would make that mistake. Are they not shipping anything yet?

Hi John,
Welcome to the boards, we need more players in this game. I look forward to specs on your miners and more information on your business model.

Thanks Btceic!

More Specs will be coming out soon.
Our business model is fairly simple: we are going to produce and sell the best possible mining gear, with a well oiled supply chain.

John

2625  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: HashFast announces specs for new ASIC: 400GH/s on: January 08, 2014, 09:05:21 AM
The chip design is almost complete. We're starting sales now because we're at the point where we the calendar of remaining items is fairly fixed, and we're confident we can deliver.

So confident in your schedule that you'll offer refunds in October, November, December, January 2014? That's not very confident at all!

Going back in time... someone knows how to read the tea leaves properly.

The case with plenty of small holes proved at Butterfly Labs to be noisy and ineffective. People achieved great temperature and noise reduction after changing the original fan plates to standard ones made of thick wire:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=277000.msg3006186#msg3006186

Silent one (left) and noisy one (right):


If the X-1 is to be silent (like advertised), the case openings should be changed a bit.

It might also be a good idea to get a dust cover for the wire one no?

2627  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Asic vendor review (WIP) on: January 08, 2014, 03:23:18 AM

Love the information posted based on personal experience. Great idea to post in this format. However, try to keep your "opinions" out of it or you will destroy the good this thread could bring. Facts only and check your emotions at the door.


I disagree. One's opinions on a company can't help but color one's review of a mfg.. These opinions aren't formed in a vacuum but come from our accumulated knowledge of a manufacturers actions, plans, and public behavior.

For example: my opinion is that AMT and BFL offer awful customer service. This very well plays into my own decision making process when community fund raising hundreds of BTC on the behalf of trusting miners that join our co-op.

No offense but trying to discount or to not include our opinions on an ASIC mfg. review thread sounds protective of one or more of these mfgs.

Edit: HashFast is at the bottom, because that's my opinion of them changing TOS for Batch 1 and 2. Partial BTC refunds from them aren't going to cut it.

+1 it is all about the PERSONAL experience.

Here is how I see it. If you mess up and fix the problem then you are deserving of further trust think BuzzDave. If you mess up and do not fix the problem think Avalon / BFL / HashFast then you are undeserving of further trust.

Personal opinion matters as time passes and more opinions are collected you can see a much more clear picture of what is going on. If there are significant numbers of complaints and little or no resolution that speaks volumes. Whether or not people are polite or vitriolic in their complaints matters as little as does the patterns that develop. Can you really determine whether the company is good or bad based on a limited number of personal opinions? I think there is value in it if the experiences are first hand.

Avalon chip buy. I personally went through way too much drama and the excuses presented by Yifu and the lack of any proper communication for well over 9 weeks was more than enough for me and the members of a group that had raised 80,000 USD to buy chips to put me off EVER buying Avalon anything again. I would as others agree they are NOT nor should they ever be trusted again regardless of their ability to ship Batch 1.

BitFury chip buy. Was involved in a small order it was shipped on time without delays from Megapower BitFury USA.

BitMine.ch A1 chip buy. Involved in ongoing project getting 2 sample chips for the prototype we are building based on the fact we provided some support on the designs of the chip. 3 week delay there abouts as indicated by BitMine.ch. Has not adversely affected our prototype development. Fairly responsive team but they need to make sure they have a CRM system in place to handle potential issues with a very complex ASIC design.

Black Arrow Minion chip buy. Supported some of the documentation for the Minion we are currently waiting on some samples / full order when the chip fabrication gets done. No warning flags so far. Very responsive team that will need a much more robust CRM system as they were slightly caught out when they had a larger order volume swamp them. They seem to be delegating some of this work but we will see how this progresses.

That is the end of my list.

Now moving forward this should be STICKIED! This has to be the go to post for us in the community to guide and inform.



[Edit] Entropy-uc yes agree 100% with that

As are we, we are so hyped to see a working prototype we can taste it.

As we get close we are focused on developing our network so we can work with and support anyone interested in fabrication and sales of these Open Hardware units. We are readying our RMA facilities should any in the US need repairs or maintenance we can support you there stateside. We are hopeful that most of the production of our units will be done through 3rd party fabricators following our designs, using our software and firmware that are licensed and can provide users with an unparalleled support of these units. But even if we see 3rd party production we are keen on offering, at customer cost of course, RMA services and we are also working hard to put together multiple hosting service sites for units worldwide.
2629  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Open Source Hardware Project] Hive & Wasp Prototype Development on: January 07, 2014, 02:07:18 PM
We are self-funded, but if you are interested in building Wasps & Hives let us know always interested in supporting more DIY teams and just to note the designs won't be released until the prototypes demonstrate we have full working hardware, software and firmware.
2630  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: The truth about the BFL 1000 BTC fund? on: January 07, 2014, 08:45:02 AM
I would like to reiterate that the topic here is the fund, not the business or Inaba's personality).

... But Zerlan's personality and arrogant behavior is getting in the way of, and cheapening the entire premise of their "fund"

 You can't have a discussion about the fund, and not discuss Josh's deplorable behavior, based on the comments you yourself have posted from him.

Is it time for the why are we waiting song?

Update Mining Pool:

Looks like the pool team are finally getting things moving server wise that means the tinkering can begin. We will have more details to post next week on the mining pool.

Chips, chips and more chips

In a recent round of discussion with various members, we will have even more chips than we originally intended on the prototype side.
A1's, BitFury and BitMain all should be well "overstocked" in the coming weeks as some of our members are having their orders being filled and more samples are sent out.

WPC Logo

Still a day or two left on first round of voting we are keen to announce the winner of the contest but still need more members to chime in on the designs.
Voting is pretty tight and at least 3 designs are now in the running and I suspect we might have to do a run-off vote to break a tie.

They don't include the coolant.

It's not just the size that counts.

The numbers you should care about are delivery time, BTC/GH, and W/GH.  Technical details are interesting, but if they don't improve those three numbers they're not really relevant.

$ per GH/s that is the real important number along with delivery date especially when you are making that miner.

Sorry for this all going sideways but kudos are deserved for demonstrating how to handle a bad situation professionally Ryepdx. There is literally very little you can do when the people who promise the chips basically refuse to honor the timetable and I was amazed that to see you push things forward given the difficulty.  Knowing that feeling of dread when you just have to chuck in the towel and start again sucks been there but things will get better.

2640  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: public record, case 13LA09619 won against BFL on: January 06, 2014, 05:01:51 AM

In other words, a plaintiff winning a default judgment says very little about another potential plaintiff's chance of winning if defendant shows up in that subsequent plaintiff's case.

YMMV, as always.

It does if they can't get their shit together and figure out which "official" place they are a getting registered mail sent to. It looks clear that BFL seems to be blissfully unaware they were sent anything and this judgement was made. Either that or they lied and basically didn't bother showing up hoping that the case would go away without going to court.
