 Anybody have any experience buying from 51asic.ru ?
They seem to be pretty legit, they have a pretty good social media presence, posted youtube videos of their hardware, etc.

BUT I've never bought from them before. Whenever I search for a review, I get a lot of Russian text (which I guess makes sense).

Anywhoozle, I'm looking to make a big purchase from them. Any and all experiences would be VERY MUCH appreciated.

Don't be stupid, there are only a handful of bitcoin mining hardware manufacturers.  If you aren't purchasing directly from them you are making a big mistake.

Whois is a service that shows who's the owner of a domain. You can see the Whois of 51asic here: https://www.whois.com/whois/51asic.ru

It only shows that they are registered by a private person (And not a company, that's a red flag).

Obviously buying directly from the manufacturer is ideal, but not always possible. Manufacturers sell out, and then what. Also, sometimes manufacturers only sell in bulk. Such was the case with Ibelink's recent DM11G. Anybody unwilling to break their "only buy from manufacturer" rule couldnt buy that model, unless they joined a group buy.

For instance, right now the L3+ is sold out on Bitmain. While that would be ideal, its sold out.

For a 400-500 dollar premium, u could pick one up from a verified retailer like Eastshore.xyz

Whether that premium is worth it is up to each individual, but IMHO saying "only buy from manufacturer is a bit simplistic
