toptek has pointed you at the best one around.

as a suggestion use a y cable as it is easier on the pc's ports wait for link.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/221661361513?


this will allow you to clock higher and to not over heat the ports.


with no fan you can do freq 200 with this cable.

Sha no doubt go with sidehacks compacs.  You will enjoy it and you can OC them to where no other stick miner touches them.

On scrypt it would be:
What about this lketc miner here - http://lketc.com/goods/show-1193.aspx
Here is full review.  http://www.cybtc.org/article-40-1.html

But I have not seen a ton of it on the forum.  It is mainly Chinese market on that scrypt stick.

100% agree with sidehacks compacs.  Just bought the usb miner, awesome.  Allows for solid over clocking IF you have the cooling capability and if you don't at 150 Mhz it runs pretty cool.

The USB miners will be mining in the positive, however the odds are low you would see an ROI.

IMO they are the PERFECT! PERFECT, miner for a hobby miner / lottery miner.

Get the S7 if you want ROI, IMO.

For most people, the S7 has about the same odds of turning positive as a stickminer does.

You will need to have decent power, most use a powered hub to get this.  Also use a Y-USB connetor ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/221661361513?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT ) Allows twice the power as 1 usb cord would.

Use the compac-cgminer and it's pretty simple from there.  I would suggest a little fan if you are doing this to push air.

u2 = 2gh

with 0 power cost it should earn about 1.50 usd by the end of 2016

sidehack stick = 13.5 gh

with no power cost it should earn about  9 usd by the end of 2016

I'm closer at 1.5gh

should I overclock, without fan?

A u2 can do freq 225 but will need a fan
Sidehacks sticks can do freq 400 but will need a fan

The u2 is hotter the sidehacks stick so if you oc use a fan.

How many Gh/s are we looking if Sidehack is able to get enough S7 chips to produce a batch of them?
