Don't know, don't care, you have to be crazy to pay $200 for 1 GH/s. I am sure they will sell all 3 of them though!

Never heard of the company before, apparently they were kickstarted for some other specialized hardware in the past.  I can't imagine they aren't legit, they're certainly overpriced for what they are.

He could have squeezed six block eruptors and a hub into a case and bolted on a fan. Difficult to estimate its size from the (lack) of detail on the listing. No previous history of selling block eruptors either (just some heatsinks and pretty cases Huh ).

It does look scammy, someone with an apparently A* 100% ebay seller's record goes rogue. I just don't trust ebay's feedback. All sorts of ways to game it.

Oh c'mon it's a wooden box the size of the original Jalepeno with a fan screwed on top. If BFL couldn't get it that size without overheating, an unknown on eBay hasn't. In any case eBay will kick him off as soon as someone notifies them or gets scammed.

That probably means he's running the Erupters off a Raspberry Pi with MinePeon on a wireless connection.  It's a known issue in MinePeon when using Wifi; the older versions don't update their time at all (unless you ssh in and do it manually), and newer versions only update after about five minutes of being turned on.

Also, if you start CGminer without any hardware at all plugged in, then plug it in after boot, it won't show the hardware status lines, so that could be a legit screenshot.

Having said that, I wouldn't buy from this guy.  If it really is six Erupters, it's way overpriced, and if it's something else, it's probably a scam.

It's a hub with six erupters in a 3d-printed box with a fan on top.  That's it.  The people paying $400 for them are buying it because of how it looks... ebay is full of idiots.  Remember, there are also people there who paid up to $2000 for a jalapeno recently... so trying to figure out a rational reason for ebay prices is pointless.

If they were somewhat cheaper, say $100, then it wouldn't be that bad of a choice.

6x Block Erupters - $270 ($45 each at current ebay price)
1x 6 Port Powered Hub - ~$25 for a D-Link DUB-H7
Case w/ fan - $15 perhaps? Guesstimate based on raspberry pi case scaled up with fan added.

So around $310 for an all in one ready to go solution, and that's at cost without shipping or labor.

I think  $325 would be reasonable for these, and there would still be profit on their end if they're ordering the erupters in bulk and printing the cases themselves.

I would not advise anyone to buy one of these. It clearly not professionally designed, so who knows what problems may show up? (eg inadequate cooling, fire hazard etc.)
