ZoomHash has them for $1449.99 shipping next week.
Andddd I am thinking about it! That's what I was looking for an easy single purchase not a MOQ or a group buy pain.

Isn't Zoomhash currently at the center of a lot of legal and business drama?

At their checkout, you can use a credit card or Paypal. I guess this would be enough protection. Huh

I have never had an issue ordering from them.
They seem like a pain on shipping, hopefully since it is coming from US they won't gouge on it but I am not going to hold my breath.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

I had a commitment from ZH to buy a large amount of hardware from them and arrange shipping myself (since I'm in Canada).  After making arrangements with a freight company, they backed out of the agreed upon price, 3 times at 3 different increasing prices...  Left a bad taste in my mouth, especially after the person I called on the phone to bring it up with essentially laughed at me saying oh well, we still sold them.

Yeah I think I will take another route or just wait with this miner, they don't seem to be the company I want to send funds to and hope it works out.

I've ordered a used S3+ from them that had a bad board within a month, and they shipped me a new one free of charge. So far it looks like the easiest option to purchase 1 miner, other than a group buy.  I'm still holding on to my 4.1's though until it is proven what the noise level is on the 6.

Would you happen to be willing to measure the sound on them and let us know how loud they are?

Would also really appreciate an update as soon as you get them in regards to the sound output, is there any information out there regarding the dB these output?

As to sound, I've heard "Somewhere between an S3 and an S5 for loudness". Take that for what it's worth.

My only issues with Zoomhash are that their warrentees tend to be crazy-short, and they tend to be pricey....

seems like you loose factory warranty?
Could be a downfall if this is so. ...

Actually Avalon is a lot nicer then bitmain on their warranty.  Bitmain a sale through 3rd party kills warranty.

Here is from blockc -

4. Warranty Registration and Transferability:

A. If still within the Warranty Period, Avalon Manufacturer’s Warranty will transfer to the buyer, upon equipment resale provided that the buyer contacts Avalon or BlockC.co to register as the new equipment owner.
B. In order to receive Manufacturer’s Warranty coverage, you must notify Reseller with your contact information, the equipment you are operating, and a description of your operating environment.

So just make sure to contact when buying a machine is how I read it.  I imagine you would need order number (proves it's still in warranty) and other info from original buyer, but most I think would be ok giving it i they are selling you a unit.

I am liking the look of the Avalon 6. I guess this is old news, but looks to be 2 hash boards, each having an 18 chip, 2 chips / node string, so 36 chips / board, 72 chips total.





For some reason websites seem to be saying 80 chips, also several report the GH/s at 3.5TH wheras I think it is 3.65GH/s?

Does anyone know if these guys are ok? http://asicminer-shop.de/Avalon-6-35-TH-s_1 All looks and sounds legit, but you never know?

Not bothered about noise but if someone can confirm to what degree these can be undervolted / underclocked I might just go for one?  Smiley

Nice eric@haobtc!  Ya'll just keep expanding!  Will like to see once you have all of these A6 up, and running.

Still running as many S3's, or upgrading to more efficient hardware?

I am a bitmain fan so i have to go with the S7. However the avalon looks very nice. I think I will buy just one for testing purposes.

It's not good to depend on 1 party.

it is good to have 2 or more s-7's

along with 2 or more Avalon 6's

that is assuming you can provide 4400 watts and cooling.

The pdu in my garage can do 30 amps derate to 24 for safety .

24 x 240 volts = 5760 watts.

I can do 3 s-7s and 2 avalon 6's   pull 5600 watts.

May be too hot.
