Mining can only be done (profitably) with ASICs, specialized machines that can only do that. If you're looking to mine for profit you'll have to make a rather large investment in these ASICs, so make sure you do the proper calculations first. If you're just mining for fun you can use a USB miner or an old ASIC, it's cheaper but you won't make money mining with them.

for mining directly bitccoin, the best one is the s9 currently, not sure if there are plan to have the s10 or s11, because the s9 is quite old already, it's better to wait for the moment

or you can use another kinda of miner to mine scrypt or x11 and convert in bitcoin, while this isn't exactly bitcoin mining, it's more effective and has a better roi, especially x11 asic

all this must be done only with proper electricity, which you need to tell first, so we can suggest better

There's a bunch of different elements that makes hardware good or bad.
Most of them depend depends on your situation and you haven't listed any details.
You should mainly look at where you live (import taxes and what's available you), how much your electricity costs, size of the operation (budget).

S9 is the best in terms of pricing ($/hashes) and power efficiency. But what about bitmain's reliability and warranty issues?

Avalon 741 looks good for mining nowadays. I'm thinkig of buying a couple...

aren't they the bst in this scene? the warranty is the same as the other asic product or better, and reliability also

the avalon as 1/2 of the speed but 2/3 of the consumption, not so efficient as the s9, yeah it cost you less, but efficiency make the miner last longer

So wtf is mining in small amounts.

You could go to sidehack and grab a USB stick it will mine small amount.

Pretty much the smallest .  For about 30 bucks .  Say it does 24gb uses under 10 watts.

Or you could buy an Avalon 741 for. Around 900 bucks.  It does 7100 gb uses around 1100 watts.

This is new gear that is reliable.

You could buy ant miner s9 ant miner r4 ant miner t9

All from bitmain. The s9 and r4 break a lot.  The t9 seems to work better

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
