Update:

I have been told a review unit around late July will be supplied to me. Sales may start mid August.



So far I have not heard back from Avalon about the mini.

    

 
 But I may buy 10 of them. If so I would keep 3 or 4 and sell 6 to 7 of them.

I have no info on price

http://www.ehash.com/

The site is down again. I hope this time it comes up with a sales price.

So if you have an interest  in them let me know. I am USA based.

 I would sell BTC only. I would ship USA only.  I realize it is all about the price.

Besides price, it would be good to inquire about noise. Given it's size, and the quietness of the 4.1 miner, I would expect it to be a complete non-issue. Nevertheless it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I emailed again.  First email was sent on the 30th of June.

I am hoping for an answer even if it is no.  No response at all is pretty hard to deal with.

I had a few pm's about joint funding so I may be able to buy a large order.

Maybe I will get a response.

You could try IRC, freenode, #avalon - though if you're not getting a response, it's entirely possible they'd rather announce this officially and globally (i.e. coordinated across their communication channels both here and the various Chinese forums) .. though a reply to that effect would be nice Smiley

    I got a few emails from avalon last night.    I should get a review unit soon maybe late July,  as for availability for sales say a 40 or 60 pack   early  or mid  August.  No word on pricing.

  So xiangfu (avalon dev) told me pricing is not yet decided. As they are ramping up production.

So  I will check back here with any info the next few weeks.


With btc getting near 300 usd. It is hard to say what pricing will be. As gear prices do tend to track BTC price.

Good news that they got back to you finally.  Keep us posted.  I can't wait to hear about the review unit.

Depending on price, I'd buy 2 to 4 of them.  That is, if I can run them off a PSU, I don't want to deal with dodgy AC adapter power bricks.  Do you know how these things are powered?

No info yet, but worst case would be

pcie to dc.

Since they pull more then 35 watts a box I think  the above should work okay.

I used to run gridseed blades with these adapters  they were very good.

Best case would be a better connection then a dc plug.

I spliced something up like that to run my old R-Box.  So that will do I suppose, although hopefully they have something better than a dc plug.  I guess it all depends on price.

Fingers crossed they ship it with at least a power brick.  Even if you don't use it, its nice to have as much as possible included in the box.

yeah but the brick will cost in shipping and price.

I an not sure what they will do.  My guess is no brick.

I would attach mine to an atx psu.

I'd actually prefer not having them ship it with a brick.  If they do, you're bound to get just about the cheapest they could source, adds to shipping costs, saddles you with a power brick that you're probably not going to use (I have 18 laying around from various products), etc.  Not to mention the whole mains power plug concerns (reason for U3s not coming with that end).  Same applies to USB cables.  I have a whole box full of mini, micro, A and B USB cables of various reliability (some are power-only, some use too thin wires for the length and have peripherals drop whenever they need a bit of extra oomph) from products that include them when I've already got good quality ones.  For me, just the miner would be ideal.
( And I'm interested, of course, but I'm in Europe, so don't add to tally Smiley )
