We can make it quick and simple:
"Why are they selling it when they could mine themselves?"
Because they have a lot of those. They can do whatever they want.

I would really like to get a hold of one of these - two questions:

Would it run on a Raspberry Pi?

What if I would only like 1-2? Am I screwed?

Thanks.

I don't see why not. My goal is to run it on raspi
What if I would only like 1-2? Am I screwed?

Small ppl like us we need to wait for the retail sellers (or group buy arrangements).

Awesome product.
Unfortunately, your price point is, to be blunt, retarded.

yes, and also minimum 300pcs/order is little bit stupid.) I expect, that it is final product, not like ASIC chips, so don't see any reason, why it will be send in hundreds per order.

10pcs minumum and price about 1BTC and you will have huge demand. your terms only leads to group buy and resending units between forum members.

otherwise, don't think, that you will be successful with you current policy.

he is right..stop trolling and tell us, why you think that it is good pricing/selling model (300pcs/order) - for end-user device.

i get what the goal is: wholesale to others who will then sale at "retail." that's a perfectly reasonable thing and the 300 minimum order isn't a big deal. avalon's chips are 10,000 chips minimum order, after all. same thing.

now, the 1.99 btc price? that's an entirely different matter. even with immediate delivery vs. waiting months, 300 mhash vs 5 ghash (and whatever power difference) is an obvious choice, and it's not in AM's favor.

It still makes sense when you factor in how much FOGA's been going currently.

Congrats on getting them released! I have been waiting for this post for some time now. Mainly because I heard a rumour that you would be charging ~$40 per miner.

The pricing is the biggest disappointment for myself personally.

At 1.99 BTC, and a conservative estimate of 20M difficulty over the next year, it will take me 352 days to recoup the 1.99 BTC cost.

It difficulty averages 40M during that time, it will take two years to recoup your investment.

assuming you mean FPGA john, then yea, this is true. but that's not longer the compare point, is it? bfl's shipping, slowly, yes, but shipping. thus those are a competing option, just with a waiting list. also there's the huge number of avalon chips which have been sold. supposedly those will be shipping by june, with DIY or other hardware being made by forum members (burnin comes to mind) ready to go quickly after that. FPGA's aren't a relevant comparison anymore.

+1 Interested.

I'd rather participate in a group buy from the UK than getting 300 units for myself. But I can pony up the 600 BTC if nobody joins.

It also depends on the expected delivery date though. Difficulty is going nowhere but up.

Considering that, the price point might be too steep soon.

First congratulations these devices look great and in a word ... cute.  But I agree with others about the price point, I thought people were over bidding for the blades.  I have a bigger problem with the cute USB dongle.  I am looking more for a blade or a big box that really pumps the hashes out.  What are people going to do, try and have 30+ of these hanging off a PC?  It is almost as if the USB dongles are meant for 'casual' miners to just plug in their laptop while they are on the go.
