Taking into account the skyrocketing difficulty increase, these things won't even break even after a year of continuous mining.

Why are we buying these again?

Fun.

Yeah, I get this error when I try to run in cgminer 3.2 or 3.2.1:

cgminer: -S: unrecognized option

Why are we buying these again?

I asked the same question, ASICMINER claim to have sold 4,000 units, that's, right 4,000 x .3GH/s = 1,200GH/s

I just laughed. That's 8,000BTC wasted, you realize how much hashing power you could get from Avalon or BFL for that money? Had you bought 20 x 66GH/s Avalon boxes for 75BTC each and set up a community farm, you would be hashing more than the entire network of Block Erupters, and saved yourself around 5,500BTC. I can't believe that so many people have been sucked in by what is clearly the ASIC ripoff of all time!



That would be a valid argument if BFL was shipping on demand.  To have a product in hand ASAP is appealing.

Yes, to bypass one layer between cgminer and the device, and give us more control over it. It has allowed us to shave a lot of CPU off by doing so. It is unfortunately a lot more work, and keeps revealing to us interesting hardware limitations that the drivers paper over, but that is often the case that the better solution takes more effort.
Has anyone gotten this to work with the Anker USB 3.0 10-port hub?  I tried it with cgminer 3.2.1, and it crashed shortly after starting.

Does not currently work off USB3 ports on cgminer 3.2+. We are investigating.

Actually as I do have such an equivalent order (Batch #2.1, Batch #2.2 and Batch #3) at Avalon, I can tell you that even though these were paid for in February, we still have not received any update on when they will ship out (they were supposed to be delivered in April).

In the mean time, AM blade orders have been delivered 10 days after payment and these are out there, generating BTC.

Our Avalon orders in the mean time have caused nothing but uncertainty and stress. By the time we'll get them, difficulty will have risen by all the AM devices shipped and ROI will take ages.

Guess where I would have preferred to place my BTC now?

These bitches are selling @ $450 right now on eBay.  I bet they'll stay that way until Avalon's chips are released.

And yet, we'll still hear economic illiterates claiming they are "overpriced."  Despite the market (loudly and firmly) saying otherwise, these buffoons believe their special little cheapskate beggar opinions truly outweigh the collective decision of all the actual buyers and sellers in an unprecedentedly free and low friction economy.   Roll Eyes

And people making their statistics aren't considering in other pool than PPS, there is more monies to be making.  Am making at least 2x PPS rate in Slush pool on not-so-lucky days.  Making more on lucky days - why would wanting to just be doing PPS?  Even HHTT can be  pay more than PPS when finding two blocks in a day.

AsicMiner is most blessed company ever. How the fuck they manage to make so many people blinded is a joke to talk to your grandsons about. They're making at least 150$ on a product unit that probably won't ever make a roi for buyers yet people are throwing money on them. Bloody unbelievable.

It does.  Paying investors with new investor's capital.  This is not that, since they obtain capital by selling hardware and mining bitcoin. 

Buying an Erupter may be a poor investment choice, but that doesn't make this a ponzi scheme.  It just makes their product really expensive.

It's the only ASIC product you can buy with the click of a mouse, that's called novelty.  People aren't buying these to make money, they just want to embrace the technology.

This shows again how skilled the guys at Asicminer are.

It's very well priced so it isn't unfair for the buyers OR the shareholder (maximising earnings).

The min. order amount makes it uncomplicated for AM and opens a nice retailer market with good competition.

i'm sorry, it is overpriced, at least i think it is.
2BTCs is alots of money, i will like to buy this,i have 2HD7950 XFX,i would loveto replace one of m 7950 with 2, 3 of those blocks erupters, but is way too overpriced.

i get it u need to pay the investiment, oh wait,  wait didn't u guys have used kickstarter? to laucher this project? so YOU didn't actually loose any moner, or support with your money at all, so why so overpriced?
and how can some one with single PC buy 200-300 bulk orders?
even 10 in a bulk order is so much,i will have to sell one of my lung for that.
Please sell it in single pieces, i would love to buy, if i could sell, or i can even trade my XFX R7950 3GB GDDR5 (new card, almost two months now!) for this
