20 starting is high. At 22 its already 4btc/gh. Blades are 3.85 with 2-3 day global shipping :/
The starting price was high to save time. Obviously it wasn't too as, as people are bidding! They may prefer BFL chips because they are the best performers per watt (GH/J) which some people (myself included) deem a long-term advantage. Moving onward, let's use this thread is for the auction, not for discussing ASIC comparisons. Please read here for an ASIC chip comparison.

Can these units be pushed/overclocked safely to 6 Gh?  Also, are you in the Bay Area, or LA region. 

Congrats on having units in hand and thanks for providing pictures the way you did.  Helps add a lot of authenticity with so many scams boucning around

-JC
Closer to LA. I cannot comment on overclocking -- I have no idea. In my personal experience with FPGA singles and now 5GH/s ASICs, BFL has excellent customer service and I wouldn't be surprised if they entertain an overclocking community. On the other hand, this may void your warranty, so please check with BFL before doing anything like overclocking.

Our current high bidders!

Did I just hear that BFL has excellent customer service?  That is so unbelievable this has to be a hoax...
a statement like that sounds very fishy.. BFL hasn't even proven the EXISTENCE of customer service yet.

I'm not well informed on asicminer blades. This BFL 5GH/s miner comes with a power supply and enclosure. Foremost of all, in the long run, this unit may outperform the blade. Here's how: this unit is about 30% more efficient with power. As electricity costs rise relative to bitcoin revenues, profit margins go down. At some point in the future, the blade will be using more value on electricity than it is generating. The 5GH/s miner will still be profitable.

Yes, they report the temperature to cgminer. They're at 46C and the closet they're in is about 29C (85F). The fans seem to be dynamically modulated to keep the temp around 46C. Despite the hot room, the miners' fans are low-flow and rather quiet. Cheers

In my experience, BFL does have excellent customer service; your and others' experience may differ. Read more about the lifetime transferable warranty on BFL ASICs. I don't believe any other ASICs have this level of support. The warranty and best performance-per-watt offered by BFL is what makes this an excellent purchase, in my mind. Cheers!
