This thread is not FUD, but facts straight from Josh's "Honest Abe" lips.

22 June 2013 - ASIC Update

...

We have been working our way through the backlog of orders over the past month. Production is slowly ramping up and we are easily able to manufacture 200 units a day currently - there will be no problem hitting 400 units a day once things are in full production. Right now, we are stymied by the inflow of chips. However, the inflow rate of chips is increasing and we expect it to be quite high within the next week or two. It's been a long road to smoothing out these bottlenecks here and there.

All sales are final at this point. We are in full production, thus your orders are final.

If you've filed a complaint with the FTC, then there's nothing I can do, you'll have to follow up with the FTC from here on out, as no one here can assist you with that. Please be sure to direct all correspondence to them in the future going forward.

On June 22, 2013, Josh stated that there will be no problem hitting 400 units a day once things are in full production. On July 4th, 2013, Josh tells his customer base on the official BFL forum that they are in full production, hence no more refunds.

Ergo, BFL is assembling 400 units a day, readied for shipment the following day. Today is July 24, 2013, thus a total of 20 days of full production equates to 8,000 (I even doubled checked my mathz) of unknown hashrate has been assembled and shipped. For added proof, please click the following link showing thousands of bitcoiners expressing their thanks to BFL for finally receiving their miners:

The only holdup was the inflow of chips. No mention of other parts such as power supplies, for if there was indeed a shortfall, Josh would not only have mentioned it, but would have prepared for it by making sure all parts are in the warehouse like any COO worth their salt would do. Fortunately, there's a large shipment of power supplies at Sonny's Walnut St. address to save space in their warehouse.

I dearly hope that BFL and Josh accepts my humble apology for any angrish I may have bestowed upon them. I erroneously felt that by keeping the heat on them, coupled with looking out for my fellow bitcoiners, was a prudent thing to do.

Now that we have undeniable proof that indeed 400 units are being assembled and shipped daily from the BF Labs Inc. facility, it's just of matter of less than 90 days now, per Josh, that everybody who has pre-ordered an ASIC-based bitcoin miner from Butterfly Labs will soon have their devices up and running, shortly showing an ROI on their initial investment.

Therefore, there's no longer a need for anybody to request a refund from BFL, for your unit will soon be assembled and shipped to you before Thanksgiving, according to Josh. We can all safely assume that since BFL has proven themselves to be a viable Bitcoin entity, they probably have a myriad of products (yet to be revealed to us due to protecting copyrights, etc.) on the drawing board that will no doubt further protect the network, with profits taking a backseat as Josh once said during the London conference at a Bitcoin meetup at a restaurant.

Sonny Vleisides' probation will be up on September 15, 2015, thus emabling him to freely travel the country, allowing him to personally showcase any new product line, thus freeing up Josh to perform his COO duties to an even higher standard.

Currently, BFL has only 35 employees, but mark my words, this viable company is going places, and I wouldn't be surprised to see upwards of a 100 employees this time next year. I only wish I had a crystal ball to see exactly what products BFL does have up their sleeve for The Third Hoorah.

In closing, I only have one simple question directed toward BFL or Josh. Apologies if it's been asked prior, for I didn't take time to search this forum.

What's the current status of the FCC certification that Josh mentioned last November, 2012?

God's speed!

There have been some logistic problems with shipping. In the photo below, a shipment of Mini Rigs was delayed.

You do realize that that's Nasser in the lower right hand corner, don't you, miscalculating the tipping point by loading 51% of the miners to the back of the cart? Also, that's an old image, explaining how Luke's Unit got damage during shipping.

ROI?
What was the price (in BTC) of Single (60GH)? In first days of pre orders?

Under development Modular UPGRADEABLE Miner (MUM). Looking for investors.
Changing one PCB with screwdriver and you have brand new miner in hand... Plug&Play, scalable from one module to thousands.

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Shipping Update

by BFL_Jody  , 07-24-2013 at 08:05 PM (2179 Views)

Jalapenos through November 8, 2012.

Little Singles: None shipped today. Stopped on June 25, 2012 orders.

Singles: June 23, 2012

MiniRigs June 23, 2012

I'm not going to comment on when I think we will have everything shipped, because I don't know. I am trying to stick to the facts here and not add anything to that. Thank you to the many who write to encourage us. You know who you are. Can't think of anything else to write today.

Wow! 400 units and none of them Jalapenos.

According to Josh, all units on backorder will be shipped before Thanksgiving.

Thank you, BFL, for playing your part in protecting the network and providing such a viable service and products. At the current rate, I see no problem with such not getting accomplished, for simple mathz dictates Josh is correct in his assessment.

BFL is on record in stating that all is well since going into full production and that they foresee no unforeseen problems in keeping up with their current pace.

I sure would hate to be a KC postal worker working the part of town that BFL is located. Them must be some very pissed-off workers.

One simple question: How come Sonny K. no longer posts here or on BFL's official forum, or sends out emails anymore? (apologies if the question is a tad complex) That dude was the bee's knees when he was around.

Semantics aside, Josh implied Thanksgiving of this year, 2013. I, too, once thought he was a liar until he posted my home address from a private PM I sent him I took an arrow to the knee.

It still amazes me to see all the positive feedback given on the following thread (linked) by those who've recently received one of them 8,000+ units assembled and shipped out over the course of the past three weeks:

It pleases me to no end to no longer have a nemesis to play with.

God's speed, BFL.

wait wait this comming from the guy who would nitpick random facts about KNCMiner, comming up with the most absurd theories, and goes on to say BFL is assembling 400 units/day because well you know JOSH said so. Have you lost your mind, or your account hacked?
