Couldn't pass up another round of these so finally ordered a batch-4 for the office or maybe home.

I don't think I'm up for buying anything if the exchange rate is $15 or more below what it should be. As bitcoin skyrockets in price bitmain stays put at $808. I don't really need any more miners and I only would be buying one or two more just to fill out space. I think I'm going to boycott these batches until bitmain keeps their price up to date again. If I miss out, oh well. I guarantee you they would be updating the price if it was falling right now.

my thoughts exactly...it basically defeats the whole purpose of bitcoin as a 24hr asset.
nevertheless, people are rah-rah about ordering..I can't speak for others, but I will not order anything until this stops.

One of my R4's that stopped hashing on one board has stopped hashing completely after trying to restore the original firmware. The hardware version listed under system overview says "   Socket connect failed: Connection refused".

I have tried powering off several times, reboots, updating firmware, etc. No more hashing. There has to be an easy fix to this without sending to Hong Kong or letting sit in Denver for weeks on end. Any thoughts?

EDIT:  unplugged the original board that did not hash and fired back up, the one remaining board is hashing again at 4th/s!

I had similar issues with multiple S9 units of my clients - I am wondering if just some loose wires that can be fixed easily by someone with the necessary skill. Very interested to learn your experience.

I had the exact problem with an S9 unit 14Th
It is currently being serviced by bitmain and should return soon. One board brought down the whole machine and unplugging it fixed it

Did Bitmain offer coupons to R4 customers? If so, anyone have a coupon or two they don't plan on using?

Merry Christmas!

They have adjusted the prices with the new day in China:

B3 - 1.284 BTC
B4 - 1.417 BTC

Prices also seem to be changing with BTC value. The above corresponds to $841/BTC

Got one and already confirmed paid by Bitmain. Yeah!

Congrats on catching one at the discount.  I paid the higher price earlier today.  I wonder if there is a way to get them to adjust the price for us early buyers.

Bitcoin is up by over $50 in the last 12 hours since you purchased your miner, its insane. I don't think they will give you any money back sadly. They are prone to ignoring requests. I technically am still owed from my late batch 1 S7. I never got any compensation even though they offered it in their sales page. You can try but I know bitmain tends to ignore requests of the sort. I never even tried myself.

On a good note though they have made the exchange rate dynamic and right now its at $858 and rising. It makes me wonder when they will increase the price or pull the miners because the deal is too good.

Can anyone who bought the B1 miners tell us how they ran during the summer months?  Were there any issues with cooling or fans?  I see the newer batches people are saying they are auto-tune so I am curious if this is going to work OK in the warmer temps or if I should be thinking about augmenting the cooling with additional fans.

Looks like B3 and B4 are sold out on the web site.  I received an email saying mine has shipped.  Looking forward to testing it out.  I am hoping not to have the issues that I see so many reporting.  If this one works well I will be interested in some future batches.   Grin

Has anyone tried standing these on end?  If so how did you mount/rack them?  Just thinking based on the orientation of the boards that it might be beneficial to mount them standing up on end. Thoughts?

I initially tried them on their side, temps. seemed to go up noticeably, so put it down.
