It's definetly an interesting concept but the price is too damn high. It would be a game changer if the price was 10th of what it is now. Not sure what the production costs are though but I'd suspect there's a nice bit of air in the price

If you can get this to work with LTC pm me, (for the price and 300kh/s hash rate) though for btc with Asics its not worth it at that price.

Looks awesome! How much does it cost and what kind of returns are we looking at?

Thank you!

Price has to be lowered drastically or it won't sell. For a few 100s more you get a high end video card that can do much more than that.

I've entered a UK buying group.   They have orders for 99 units.  No one has placed an order in the last day or so.

It's a nice idea and if they were $50 each, I'd buy a couple. Currently you'd get similar hash rate from 2nd hand ati 6870's from eBay at around $50 and you can sell them again when they're worthless for mining.

They're incredibly poor value at $240, compared to a BFL Jalapeño which would do 5GH/s at $275. If they have the chips, they should bundle them together into something more powerful for the same price.

No reason to buy this. It only costs $100 less than a 7950, does 300 less mh/s, and has little to no resale value.

I'm sure your 7950 will not be a collectors item like this USB puppy will be

"would" is the right verb here, as they are not likely to ship out your BFL order until after August 2013 (2014?)

ASICminer has only auctioned off items they are ready to ship out asap

Again, time will tell.... you can vote with your money. I know where the smart BTC will be spent....

Which ones costs more to operate in the long run?

GPU's are the past, because of their power usage (Mh/J). With increasing hash rates, they'll be gone soon.

The unknowns are:
1/ how long it will take to get other ASIC chips stable and into working miner PCBs (USB, blade etc ) and
2/ then how long they'll be exxie specialist batch runs, like these, versus the big bulk runs @ < $50/300Mh/s (that everyone says those are 'really worth').

Only time will tell who was right.
I'm prepared to put some BTC on both.

Rubyist who think bitcoin sound like a good idea.

price too high, a 7950 would perform double the speed and allow you to play games Smiley

If you we in the market to upgrade your miner, why spend on power hungry GPUs when you can do it with USB power?

No resale value? You just need to look at the FPGA market to see that there will be demand for power efficient mining devices. There arn't going to be enough USB miners to go around immediately. You could capitalise on the demand and sell you miner at a profit at the right time. Of cause one would only do this once their ASICs arrive. Wink

Play games? No thanks, I'm here to mine coins. Not play games.

Me because Id rather keep my 2BTC than buy a USB miner for 2BTC which will return less than 1BTC over its lifespan...

This device is an early warning of price falls in the market as the supply will soar, right?

Thank me || accuse me...with evidence.

I would not buy one of those but one BFL 5Gh/s for almost the same price, even if you get it only in august it will pay itself off..
