Last S9 (13.5 TH/s - ships Dec 21-30) batch sale price was USD1415 and you need to add power supply (or source it elsewhere) + shipping cost to your doorstep + importation fees to your country (if there is any). They're not available anymore for order at the moment.

hey thanks for your reply so you think s9 is the best rig to get right now for mining compared to T9 and L3+ ?
and so I will be able to place order on December for new batch or would is there a way to pre order them from bit main?

Hi, decision is yours. Do a bit more research to be more confident on what you're getting into as each of the machine are designed for specific objective/algo mining. Be alert that they may open new batch for sale anytime, which I do not know precisely when.

Definitely, it's worth it to buy ASIC Miner. But there are limitations comparing to video cards. Video cards can mine 2 cryptocurrencies at once but ASIC miner mines only one.
I would recommend Antminer L3+  consumes only 800w and getting 504 MH/s.
I wish you good luck in your mining journey.

While the S9 is the most efficient Bitcoin miner right now. Consider building a GPU rig to mine altcoins.
The S9 is actually highly unreliable with hashboard failures appearing frequently.

If you buy either of these, you should make sure that you put them in a well ventilated room and do some research on their profitability so that you know in how much time you'll get your money back.
You should also account for the increase in mining difficulty.

hey thanks for everyone's reply's

well as Ive seen so far the S9 does seem to have a lot more due to failures but has a good ratio for speed and power consumption that keeps it in a good margin for a profitable investment but due to it only probably lasting for a couple of months before it burns out I am thinking of ditching out the extra money and extra cost for power and upgrading to a T9 if I go for mining Bitcoin anyways which I have more experience using instead of mining lite coin

I have being using a rig with I7 4790k 20gb ram and a gtx 970 for mining and it doesn't make much and I do understand that it only is pushing 4gb of video but how much would I actually push if I invested say for a 8gb card putting me at 12 gb total on video would that even bring me anything close to the speeds as an S9 T9 or L3 ?

As for what Floppy disk said as advising me to the L3+ which I am giving some thought due to its low power consumption and profitable gains my only draw back is the trust and knowledge of mining lite coin as well as its volatility and how it may change ?


any more advise is great and appreciate thanks again and I will be ready for once one of the new batches comes out just basically trying to pin point an exact one

T9's are great and far more reliable that the s9. Slightly lower efficiency but the reliability more than makes up for that. I have 4 of them, zero issues - ever.
Problem you'll have is finding them as it seems that Bitmain is no longer making them. Think the last I saw them on sale was in June.
