What's the life expectancy on the S9?  The previous models only ran about 1 year so I'm hoping these can go longer.   

Let's hope you're wrong, I didn't buy a S7-LN to last for only one year.
Did you overclock it?

He is doing something wrong if he can say multiple models only lasted a year.  Either OC, to hot, or something.  No that is not normal at all to have that kind of rate dying.    I have owned quite  few and not had the 1 year little life he mentions.

Look at all the S3's hanging around they were built like tanks I think most will be working far past useful (except for free on) on them.

I'm liking the new firmware update. HW errors are down, boards are more consistent with one another.

Does anyone have the link to the HP PSU that can be used for the S9?

IMHO I am waiting for the halving before shelling out for a rack of these machines, It seems a waste spending 3btc on a item that is immediately going to half in productivity in less than 2 weeks.

After the halving tho, I will be interested in selling off the 12+ S7's and upgrading to all S9's. I would keep buying S7's but I am going to soon run out of power lol

Hi I have received two units of S9 and both have one board hashing around 2.7

They are batch 2, is it a normal? Any tips?

Thanks!

Few days after the fact but switch the connection that low preformance board plugs into the controller.  You should have an open slot.  I had the same problem fixed it for me.

I'm in a high power cost area.  After halving (less than 10 days and counting) my S7 goes from profitable to money loser.  So easy decision.

Yes I am really hoping that they adjust their prices after the halving.  They haven't adjusted the prices for their older S7 and S7-LN in a while which really surprises me.

It makes sense for them, there's no other big company that makes miners this efficient nowadays, so they can let prices stagnate for a while. You're kind of forced to buy these, so bitmain's simply racking up those dollars. They've adjusted their prices a lot recently, so as not to be in competition with avalon, but now that they've not released anything, along with Bitfury, they can let these prices stay. I'm assuming they're going to drop the price after halving.

My expectations after halving -- are that they'll try for $1,800 -- and if demand is still there, it will stay close to there for a long while.

On an other unfortunate note -- I got the dreaded email from DHL...

I guess that I was forewarned -- probably won't know until tomorrow...

As long as Bitmain sells every one of the miners they make they can charge as much as they want. Free market capitalism at it's best. Think about how fast each batch of the S9 miners has "sold out." Would you lower your prices if you were selling everything you made? Probably not, and you might even raise your prices to see how much more you could make. Oh, sure, some of the people buying the miners will complain about the price, but at the end of the day they still sent the BTC or used a credit card to buy them.

If/when another company selling equivalently powerful miners arrives on the scene is likely when you will see prices moderate.

Cheers,

Well that much was inevitable.  What happens next could still go either way.  I haven't even gotten that far which suprises me since they probably went out from bitmain at the same time.  All I have is this so far:

Shenzhen, China    06/29/2016    10:55 P.M.    Arrival Scan
                   06/29/2016    10:52 P.M.    Departure Scan
                   06/29/2016    7:52 P.M.    Origin Scan
                   06/29/2016    4:21 P.M.    Pickup Scan
China            06/29/2016    10:54 P.M.    Order Processed: Ready for UPS

This is SOP for UPS. It arrives and departs Shenzhen at least twice, often more.  Probably just being transferred back and forth to customs within the same facility.  We should know more in the AM.  But Friday is starting to look doubtful.
