You still thinking of doing that S1/3 upgrade kit?
@ Sidehack: and still have that heap of old s1's I sent ya long ago? Would be good for folks wanting a ready-to run solution.

If/when folks are interested I still have a fair number of s3's that can be had just for cost of shipping within USA only.

Where you located?  I may take you up on one of these....

FWIW I picked up an S3+ miner on Amazon for about $250. Even though the power/hash rate isn't that good ~.7watts/Ghs it runs well and very quiet relative to the newer miners.

Waiting for the upgrade boards too. :-)

That's a horrible price to pay for an S3. They used to sell for $70 or less on pretty much every site, and even now you can get a better deal for them on eBay. First search I looked for on eBay was a $180-190 S3 with shipping factored in. Not a great price but still lower than your $250.

It's still a quiet miner though, enjoy!

Yeah but if he bought it more than a month or so ago, bitcoins were trading for roughly twice the current value and all miner prices were stupid.

But yeah that's still a bad price. I wouldn't have bought an S5 for that.

On that note, miner prices have come back down to Earth recently overall though there are still some holdouts on ebay who think $3k is a reasonable asking price for something like an Avalon 741... I sure hope people out there are not falling for it much but who knows.

It's certainly not a bad time to upgrade for all of us who buy second-hand miners and have the $$$ to do so.

Sending a pm if you still have s3's for shipping costs.
