Is there somewhere else to signify that they are out on stock of the R4's, because it doesn't indicate out of stock on the BUY Now link..

https://shop.bitmain.com/productDetail.htm?pid=00020161201095444529eRF3C3sI0659

I did notice the lack of an option to buy an S9, perhaps that was what philipma1957 was meaning to refer to as being out of stock?
Wait, duh... I see now that the price is 'gray'd out' and you can't add the R4 to your cart.
Also, I notice the price DROPPED down from on 12/2/2016 a price of $1,395 USD to the price today of $1,080 USD. Nice.
I also noticed that they changed the hash specs from 8.6TH/s (in R4 Batch 1) to now 8.0TH/s for R4 Batch 2. Not so nice. Oh well,the overclock to 650 should get at least back to the original 8.6TH/s.  I was hoping to get a bit over 9TH/s with the 650 overclock, but it looks like that might no longer be a possibility.

Thanks all!

Yeah, that's the link I was referring to - the price is 'grayed out' and you can't add the R4 to your cart, also there isn't even an option to click on to buy an S9 either.

So, the question is now - how long until the new stock of more R4's are available from Bitmain?
Anyone know any info on this?
Thanks!

Unfortunately I, and many others, have been waiting many months for this latest batch to be released. And indeed they have sold out very quickly as the last batch did.  So best guess at this point is don't hold your breath for batch 3, few months or more would be a conservative guess.  Could be less, could be more... who knows besides those inside Bitmain who run the show?

Well, I hope the R4 I found is legit. Just bought one, so I guess I'll see if they actually have it IN HAND in the USA & will ship it within 10 days...

Antminer R4, 8TH/s Designed for home use.NOTE: We ship the miner after 10 days
http://www.ebay.com/itm/162307697540

The seller has sold Antminers in the past, both used and a new one with positive feedback, so hopefully I'll have a new R4 to start mining with in about 2 weeks. Had to pay a premium price, but if it will be months b4 the next batch comes out, I'd rather have one now & hashing so it can pay for itself sooner rather than later when the difficulty increases.

People are paying $2000 USD for a batch 1 so you didn't pay too much.

Good to know. Thanks dogjunior.  Sure hope I actually get it.
I'll be keeping an eye on this thread since others here are expecting theirs to come in this week.
Hope the R4 Batch 2's can be overclocked to 650 like the Batch 1's. We will see.

more like $1122 (1.457 btc) before shipping or $1218 shipped (1.582 btc), but who is counting... Grin
bottom line..meh deal.

 R4 has always been priced at a heck of a premium vs the S9 on a $/hash basis - but they appear to have decided the Avalon 721 is competition for the R4.

I am just curious what peoples experience has been buying these off of Alibaba?  I see them listed there, but it is the wild west, or the wild east as the case may be when buying on Alibaba.  Thoughts?

From what I've heard, the website is legit and has controls and refund mechanisms like Amazon that work well for buyer protection.

That being said, I have never bought anything there and wouldn't risk 1k.

Please keep us in touch if it works out for you mate !

I've purchased a fair amount of things from Ali, it's just a clearinghouse for vendors.  Some vendors are legit, some may be less so.  I would make sure you work with a vendor that has the highest number of transactions as well as a high rating.  I've never had a problem, if you have questions you should use the contact mechanism to make sure you're getting what you think you're getting.

I noticed something strange:

Bitmain claimed each R4 weighed 9kg. But on UPS tracking the weight is 6kg. 50% overcharging?!

Wouldn't surprise me if they did overcharge for shipping cost. Just like using their own currency conversion rate  Cry

Perhaps that's the weight with both R4 and PSU in the box? They 'forgot' to adjust for those who didn't purchase both, me included!

I think this is a black and white argument and they should have no corner to cut. I am fine with they make money as long as it's justifiable, otherwise a plain fraud it is.
