      If I could order this with my paypal account using my discover card.
   the warranty would be extended 1 year to 1 year and 90 days. I need to check this to be sure but I think it is true.
   My power is not 1 cent even with the solar array.

   If I had a 15 month warranty and 1 cent power.  This makes some sense see below


some roi charts

1 cent power 2% diff jumps

1 cent power 3% diff jumps

1 cent power 4% diff jumps


Indeed you are living a golden kwh life (as I am green with envy at my 14c kwh now in summer and maybe 11c kwh this winter (oct 15th starts) ...so I can only get
by using scrypt miners and got lucky and found 1 corp default on eBay to likely pay knc class action this summer new nov 2013 unit at 1750 usd plus 75 bucks my share
of shipping (split with maxumark) and the dumb luck ask about RMA stuff on the bankruptcy thru kurt's head tech old email account (emails on main page never replied to us)
and the law firm tripped over us thus putting us down as one of 6to 8 vetted vendors and got we 24 new ones 400mh Titans.....of which I got 6 of them....you just can't discount being dumb and lucky)

anyway the R4 IF say folk were to come to the conclusion that BTC difficulty due to halving was to flatline some due to too much BTC mining equipment...then maybe
at my 14c kwh rate i could play the game of roi in 10-12 months (with a hope of BTC pump) and then mine the thing after ROI thru the year after ...like the game I've
been playing with scrypt mining of LTC with Titans...but alas this seems unlikely...folk have been saying to me they expect at least a 50% to 100% difficulty rise in BTC difficulty anyway
so that dog don't hunt.

But works damn well at your kwh rate I have to tell you.....(damn I need to move where you live.....sheesh) Then again you probably are in a warm climate...I heated my house
last year at 3000 watts and now have at home 6000 watts so that is dang helpful to the ROI......so hell maybe there is another price point on the R4 between my 11c kwh
likely winter rate and heat the house and your 1-2c kwh rate....space heater benefits are real if you have more than a couple of such Smiley

but damn....1-2c kwh jeez..but no frigging way I can get an R4 as nothing more than a toy and hope for a BTC pump.....at a 12 month ROI point....too bad thou.

 Problem with the R4 is that it's almost IDENTICAL price with the 11.85 GH S9  version, offers less than 3/4th the hash for the same money AT THE SAME EFFICIENCY.

 The ONLY pluses to it are (1) quieter (2) smaller power draw makes it a LITTLE more flexable on where you can put one.

 IMO it's NOT worth the major $/h premium you pay for the thing for the minor advantages it offers.


 It's too bad nobody makes an efficient SHA256 miner on the order of the Baikal one for X11/X13/etc - THOSE would sell like hotcakes to HOME miners, small VERY low power draw and EASY to make quiet with such a low power draw per miner.....
