Thank you for your thoughts, but sadly they're no longer for sale  Cry. I came too late.

there are plenty here in Marketplace: hardware threads from reputable people and with escrow if you want it.

I'll look at it, but there is still the same problems than the ones from Bitmain :

  -1 : shipping costs : it will cost me a lot of money if they are shipped for USA (I think).
  -2 : buying the Bitcoins : buy the Bitcoins needed to buy the AntMiner S5 suppose fees, which are really high with a credit card.

So the best would be to find one in Europe (not too far from me), which I can pay with bucks.

I'll look at this section right now. Maybe with a little of luck I'll find something that suits my needs.

i believe that S5 Miners now worth just 1BTC and will go lower after release of S7 soon.

Indeed, with increasing difficulty there will be pressure on the s5 price. There is much more used equipment on the market too. However, till the s7 entry I do not believe in a big drop in s5 prices. There is simply no alternative. After the release of s7 we can see decrease in s5 prices. It depends on the price to s7.

Prices will not fall quickly also because of the additional charges as transport costs and customs duties. At least in Europe.

But 360 isint that much of a good deal since thats a massive 1.75BTC. The ROI on that purchase would take a very long time if possible at all, currently.

yeah maybe 5-6months depending on electric cost.. but thats about the closest ive seen to bitmains last price which allows one to use a credit card to purchase.. although zoomhash now has the 3 pack for like 1100

Or 1 year + with the current difficulty increase trend, hard to tell.
With the S7 around the corner, its probably better to wait for the mass sell. Just since the new chip announcement the market place already started having tons of S5 for sale.

Well there's quite a few S5 on the marketplace that arent being sold. Maybe because buyer know/think that if they wait they will get the hardware they want at the price they want. Shifted to buyer's market i guess.
