Very strange price they want to charge for it.

Quote
0.4-0.6W/G

Judging by the specs at their website it will be around 0.4 W/G but not 0.6. Have you any detailed specs that could explain 0.6 value?

Very strange product to release at this point in time.
I would like to buy several units for a reasonable price. 30 USD for each of, for example, 5 units in one parcel + 50-60 USD for shipping. For fun and for office use.  Roll Eyes

78GH at it's high setting.

 But unless they price it under $40 WITH shipping, forget ever managing to ROI it unless you're on free electric. Perhaps $50 if you have 3c/KWH or cheaper electric.

 Very late to the game with that generation of chip.

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

these are for free power situations.

 A dorm
 An office
 A hotel room.

I read the review and they are a bit too loud  51db.

I advise against office mining though, I wouldn't risk my job over mining and being accused of stealing electricity when IT calls your boss about unusual activity.

 12 watts on low 30 watts on high.

 this is meant as a lotto type device.

Not the same as running a few avalon 4.1's

My argument would be I like the white noise it makes I rather hear that then a radio. 

But I do agree too many of these will cause an issue.

I wouldn't be worried about noise or wattage use though just more about the packets going out, definitely great for college, hotels, possibly even car mining (convertor and some cars have built in wifi now).

Avalon, delivering hardware 6 months after the competition and massively overpriced since their very first machine.

Buy 500 of them and you get them for the bargain price $235 + shipping each.

I expect that once the OP has added on his profit margin and shipping they'll be $300 yeah sign me up why would I want an S5 for the same amount lol

I'd have to say this is more geared around alt coins?

Try finding a Bitcoin mining-compatible altcoin that's worth the bother that can't also already be merge-mined (like namecoin).  No Bitcoin mining gear is built around altcoins specifically, and hardware that is built for altcoins is incompatible with mining Bitcoin (e.g. scrypt hardware for litecoin/dogecoin)

I agree with you completely but still wonder why the effort for another overpriced toy really.
I can't see a hec of a lot of sales to make production effort worthwhile :/

The only alt coins worth mining, IME, are Scrypt, X11, and POSSIBLY SHA256 merge-minable coins like Namecoin. Everything else has way too small of a market to be worth wasting time on IME.


 At $200+, I see there being NO market for this thing except for folks that like expen$$$ive toys to play with.
