So guys, has anyone used the R4 Miner before or has any direct feedback on it? I tried googling, but too few is available. I am interested if indeed it is quiet enough to be used at home conditions.

since bitmain opened the last batch it hasnt sold out... either they have increased production by a lot, or there is some backroom information that the big companies arent buying any letting the small ones take the hit, considering there are news about smaller chips and samsung coming to the game and a lot of people with big farms selling all their S9's; brings me some fear (since i got a order open for march) that they are either coming with a new miner or some other big news is coming out, anyone else with these thoughts ?

Probably better asked in the R4 thread. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1597639.0

I have 2 of them. They both lost a board. One within 3 days, the other after about 7 months. They do run quieter than any antminer since the S3. It's not unnoticeable but it kinda blends in to the background. Makes for a decent space heater. So unless you just want a space heater, I would steer clear.

Considering the current price of BTC and BCH, why would you buy? Bitmain would have to cut the price in half to make it an attractive purchase.

any real gamer that believe in BTC mining would make estimations to where it is going, and would consider the low quantity when the price is high, if i were one, this would be a time to buy them, since most time getting a S9 at MRSP is not about money, is about availability

Yeah, but if they cut the price, you know what will happen, right? Difficulty will raise so quickly, that we would all wish they never decreased the price. So current price is OK Smiley

I wasn't saying I wanted them to cut the price. They could leave it as is, so the nobody buys and the diff stays where about where it is. If the diff had a negligible increase or even decrease, I'd be as happy as a puppy with two peters.

I'm just saying I wouldn't buy at that price. Apparently not a lot of others want to either, considering how long they've been available. If you want to make estimations as to where BTC is going, you're better off buying BTC than the S9 at the rate Bitmain is offering them for sale.

It would be a big risk on Bitmain's part if story is true as ethereum is suppose to go proof of stake sometime this year. And whoever buys it is taking a huge risk too.

No one is snapping up the S9s because difficulty has increased so much & is continuing to increase daily, that the S9s no longer mine much bitcoin in a year. In Nov. an S9 was mining about 1 bitcoin regardless of price. Fast forward 3 months and an S9 mines less than 0.5 bitcoin. Right now bitcoin is having a tough time breaking above $9000 and may end up going back below $8000. So paying $2320 for an S9 now is a big risk with so much going against bitcoin. Also, there are hundreds of S9s and huge lots being sold on eBay now vs. a month ago.

Hi everyone!  Wink

I want to order S9 to Estonia. Bitmain site provides for 3 delivery options:
- UPS (39 USD/kg),
- Fedex (19 USD/kg),
- DHL (14 USD/kg).

With 5.5 kg weight of S9 this leads to
+ 215 USD for UPS
+ 105 USD for Fedex
+ 80 USD for DHL

Thus the total price of 1 S9 with APW3++ peaks more than 2 760 USD  Cry = 2 320 (Price of S9) + 215 (UPS delivery) + 105 (APW3++ price) + 120 (UPS delivery of APW3++)

Is this estimation correct? I can't believe delivery costs are that high  Embarrassed

Are there any other delivery options? How you guys deliver S9 to your country? I believe delivery prices I pointed out are more or less the same across Europe.

This is European Union man, prices are identical. By the way this is your least problem, you should be more worried about the ~20% (depending on the country, but it is around that percentage) customs duties that you will have to pay upon delivery Smiley Else said = 2 760 USD + 552 (20% taxes) = 3312 USD final price as compared to 2320 list price. This is what all we have all been paying for 1 machine in EU. If you notice unofficial European resellers, prices are even higher, so that they can be on profit.

I agree.
I have estimated the duty and vat on importing an S9 into the EU at around 800 Euro (Duty 262 & VAT 560), so that would bring your total to around a 3000 Euro at the S9's current price.
UPS, or whoever, won't release the delivery to you unless you pay the ransom.

Thx for response Kobo_eth!  Kiss

Still can't believe in these numbers. Everyone in sources that I came through calculates payback period simply based on production price (2 320 USD)  Grin

With 3 312 USD initial cost and 11.8 USD daily revenue (0.00127 BTC (Whattomine data as of now) * 9 300 (Coinmarketcap data as of now) = 11.8 USD) S9 will pay out itself in like 280 days and that's without taking into account complexity growth and risks of new Antminer release Shocked
