Sierra is a nice piece of hardware from current point of view.
However I'd say it depends on the point in time of final delivery, what KnC offers begin of next year and how cointerra does..

Jupiter customers from day1/2 have until today ~50% of their investment back in pockets (from fiat view point, only).
So it might work out if you are one of the early birds taking a high risk, but for later ones the margin gets smaller and smaller.

Keep in mind a 'money printing' machine attracts greedy ones from all sides, stupid ones as well - I saw on ebay mid of September 7 bids for old avalon 160GH/s, $11.9xx

It seems impossible to count on fast delivery of any ASIC products lately from the response on the forums.
Very true (about the greedy folks). 
Also on a side note, has anyone used the calculator on http://mining.thegenesisblock.com/ ?  It has a spot to input "conversion increase %" - I assume thats the price BTC goes up in value each month.  Hard to estimate this, but I've read folks think $300 by Jan 2014 - so 50% rice might be a good guess no?

Thanks for the responses guys.

You should leave the conversion % increase at 0 because if the mining equipment isn't going to ROI in BTC terms then what is the point of going through the trouble of mining when you could have just bought BTC.

Gigampz: Adapter Boards for Server Power Supplies 50% cheaper than ATX power supplies.  DPS-800GBA, DPS-1200FBA, Common Slot, CRPS, DPS-1200TBA, DPS-2000bb, Dell z750p

If you want to have fun and actually make money then attempt to pay the btc value game...buy low and sell high. every day it goes down and goes up...just gatta be quick and smart.
Buying machines from these thief companies will just tie up ur money and make u regret the word mining.

That is what I'm trying to figure out... if you can get ROI.   If you're using a calculator that calculates your return over several months, I would assume you need to include the change in BTC currency value over that period.
For instance, if I spend $6k, then spend 6 months mining, those coins earned in 6 months aren't still worth the $213 (or whatever current value is today)... if they're worth more, that could help your ROI.

I'll give this a shot:

Imagine that the miner you bought is a *dollar printing machine*, which you buy with *dollars*.
When trying to figure out if it makes sense to buy this gizmo, do you need to know how *the dollar* price will change relative to the yen?

Hopefully, you've answered "No.  All i need to do is know how many dollars this gizmo will print in its lifetime, and how much i have to pay for it.  If I pay less than it makes, I win.  If not, then no deal."

Now substitute BTC for dollar.
Potip:  If you think bitcoin's going up in price, buy bitcoin with the money you would have spent on the mining gear FTW.

I'm with ya, thanks for the analogy!  Alright I'm going to go buy BTC and hide them under my mattress.

We should have some news on tuesday. Not because HF decided that we deserve an update, but because the icedrill asset should have an update by then. Thank you, icedrill.

We are in line with a delivery before the end of this year. Everything else is under NDA; thanks for asking.
It would be funny have such an update at this point.

Well I asked again about any shipping updates and they told me that they "hope" to have one update this week.

They also told me that cases and everything else is being assenbled (check pictures on website they said) and that they are trying to do their best to ship as soon as possible.

I find the comment of the pictures really funny because the only parts shown were a sierra case, psu and cooling, not the pcbs or the case of BJs they claim to be already assenbling. I suposse its also under NDA  Cheesy

I just started looking into HashFast company.
On there website I can see that if I order today, i will be part of the third batch.
But I see that there's still no shipping date for batch one.
After batch one is shipped, is there going to be a break until batch two is shipped ?

from recent news seems now. It sounds like batch one will ship 1, 2 weeks max before batch 2

The company hasn't specified the delay between them, but once ciara gets chips and pcbs they should be making and shipping at rates of more than one thousand units per day.

Cant really gauge what their shipping date is @ first they said mid oct 20 till oct 30 now they say mid nov, now they completely took off their shipping estimate, they have not change full refund if no shipped products by dec 31 2013.
wont be surpise if they dont ship past that date and get no RIO.

People who bought before August 15th and are looking to obtain a refund, HashFast has told me that there is internal arbitration going on for this matter and that a decision about whether or not you will be able to refund your purchase will be made by Monday.

I'm sure I'm not the only one waiting on this..

+1 interested too...

While Tacotime has been doing a great job, I'd much prefer someone from HF to give official updates directly. They have bitcointalk accounts, so why not use them?

They told me they'll know later today about the refunds.

Here are dimensions/masses of the units themselves:
  • Baby Jet: 21.8” x 8.3” x 20.5” — 22 pounds (standalone)
  • Sierra: 17” x 16” x 7” — 44.5 pounds (4U 19-inch rack mountable)
