Please forgive me, but I haven't kept up with this forum in a while, but I guess all the focus is on ASICs at this point. I've skimmed through a few threads and I understand that at least one is vaporware and a couple more are running behind schedule for release date. Much beyond that though, would require more reading than I'd care to spend on the matter, especially on my phone's tiny screen. With that being said, if I were to buy an ASIC today, which one should I get?

What you should order  Huh

There's only one company even taking orders, so the question is kinda moot.

I'd suggest you wait and see. The tides are troubled.

Probably a fluke? Hash rate has been jumping between 20-23 TH/s, which is completely normal..

EDIT: It also dropped from a 1 million increase to .5 million since I first looked

Current diff is ~3.44 million. Estimated next diff is ~3.39 million. Bitcoin Charts don't show anything out of the ordinary. I think it'll be a lil more obvious than this when ASICs do hit.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'll just wait it out for now. It'd be nice to be able to make 1 BTC/day again!

Wait, what? You trying to say the current diff was 2.9 million a couple hours ago, and now it's 3.4 million? The current diff was calculated on the 23rd.

Current diff is 2968775. I don't think spiccioli ever said 3.4 million, that was probably your mistake.

No, he was right before. The 'estimate' link above had it around 3.7m, and then down to 3.4 when I looked again. Seems to be back down to 2.9m where it belongs.

That's my point. Spiccioli seems to be correct here. Crazyates must have gotten some numbers mixed up.
