MiniRig Line:Concerned
Via Jody's blog, we can conclude the minirig line made ZERO progress from roughly August 15th until today. It seems ONE 500 GH/s unit has been completed since then (as seen on Jody's Update yesterday). If only one 500 GH/s unit has been completed since the 15th, which is 8 days...How, at ONE 500 GH/s unit EVERY 8 DAYS, will BFL ever complete the backlog?

If BFL is purposely slowing the Minirig line, to force big-money investors to switch their investment to the Monarch line, this would be very troubling.

I welcome BFL to clarify why this line, which so much money has been dumped into by customers, is moving so slowly...Neglect, lack of coordination, or fraud?

Also, since I have 1.5 TH/s to my order...Can I assume, at one 500GH/s rig every 8 days, my order will take 24 DAYS to build and fulfill?


Thanks for your time


PS: I'm not an angry troll, I've invested in the Minirig line and I'm extremely concerned at the lack of progress. And seemingly no effort to correct it..

Are no other MiniRig purchasers as concerned as I am?


Hello EvilLizardApparel,

Just wanted to let you know that MiniRig line was not slowed down in any way, we were just waiting for new boards to arrive to the facility.


Regards,
Nasser




Nasser,

Your presence in this thread is refreshing. I am glad you came here to actually execute some customer service, and didn't come in here calling concerned customers "monumental assholes". However, by now you should not be running out of chips or other parts...You are in "full production" and have a huge backlog to fill. Your customers did not shell out millions for you guys to still not be at the top of your game after all these months. Your customers are on the cusp of having a failed investment in your company, we have had our faith in you and despair at being continually disappointed. We accepted the reduced specs of your products, now we need you to actually produce and ship them in a timely and competent manner.

Thank you for taking the time to post though, Nasser. You better tell your production coordinators to get there shit together, your customers grow restless and a group lawsuit will be on the horizon if you don't clear the backlog in September. I know it is not personally your fault, the outlook is simply grim. Thank you for informing us regarding the Minirig line, and that it is not a fraudulent or deliberate delay.

This is the formal response format of somebody who is about to get served

What did you mean by that? If you believe I'm being formal and professional due to imminently being "served" a Minirig, you are incorrect. My order is March 2013, I have awhile until I'm "served". If you meant my tone is that of someone who is going to "serve" legal issues to BFL's door if the backlog isn't flying out in September, you would be correct.

5 months ago, BFL knew exactly how many boards they needed for their mini-rig orders. Yet somehow, they failed to order a few dozen PCBs? For 5 months, they were unable to order them? Even I don't think BFL was that low on cash. Or that high on dope.

On the other hand, a whole bunch of chips go into those boards and those chips are really expensive. So I could understand BFL waiting until their new chip order arrives (100 days from who knows when) before they make any more mini-rigs. This way they can continue to ship a few Jalapenos each day and show "progress".
OMG, did I just see UNDERSTANDING??? Wow, that must have been a typo! Wink

In my opinion every mini rig that is shipped with a pay date later than the current single date is a stolen board from that production line (they use the same boards if I am not mistaken). Every single that is shipped ahead of the current 3rd mini rig ship date is stolen from that line.

They are absolutely not following their 1/3 shipping plan and they are just doing whatever the hell they feel to give the illusion of shipping faster or giving certain people benefits.

They way they are running this show is a completely retarded train wreck.

Furthermore their monarch line released last sat morning starts a whole new pay date regardless of your original pay date unlike current waiting line. The early numbers for that (people who supposedly will get the cards months before people who converted a day or two after the announcement) were sold out almost immediately..Gee I wonder who got the heads up on that....

You got it... taking boards form 6/23 MR orders so they can say they are shipping MR 7/28 orders (outside of first month).

If you're going to do this... DO IT RIGHT!!!



And a Public Service Announcement!
If you have ordered from BFL and have not yet received your product, you are entitled to a refund whenever you request one (per FTC rules).
First ask Butterfly Labs for one, they will probably say no but you might get lucky.
If you ordered via PayPal you can file a complaint with them even if you are outside the 45 day window. One customer has already gotten a refund from PayPal that was outside the 45 days.
If you ordered via BTC or Bank wire, you can fill out a complaint with the FTC and they will advocate for you with BFL to get your refund. You can also contact the office of the Kansas Attorney General and inform them that you have had your money taken with no product delivered for months, just more promises.

There are also several threads on how to get a refund from BFL, here are two:

I am glad we got there Cheesy

Need a new term for BFL.

Not quite a Pre-Order something that you never intend on producing then supplant it with "newer" model that costs more and takes even longer to produce.

This is where you and I disagree.  A pre-order is an order placed for an item which has not yet been released.  When BFL changed their pricing in April, that is when pre-orders ended.  At that point in time they knew how much each unit would cost and began taking orders.  Those can be considered back-orders since they do not have enough on hand to ship them.

I know this is going to start a new Flame war over BFL, but the truth that no one understands is that when Josh said all pre-orders(sic) would ship by September, he was looking at my definition.  Just like everyone does not understand lifetime warranty.  Just because *you* think it means *your* lifetime, 99% of the time it means the lifetime of the product in the market.

So, will BFL have shipped all pre-orders by Jan 1?  Yup.  Will they have shipped ALL orders?  Doubtful.

You should really re-word your bet, I could bet against you and take you to court and win the way it is worded now.

I ain't taking that bet.

I'm still waiting for my Jalepenos, fyi.

Anybody that throws more money at BFL hoping for actual shipped hardware has more money then sense. I've learned my lesson.

Kinda contradicting yourself there  Shocked Roll Eyes

They haven't slowed down except for the part where they came to a full and complete stop when the parts ran out for a week or two.

Its BFL speak. They train them.

BFL Trainer: Hello new recruit, do you know what time it is?

New Recruit: Yes I do.

BFL Trainer: Well done!   Let's try another.....   Has the assembly line slowed down?

New Recruit: No

BFL Trainer: Very Good.... One More question.....  I have a customer that says they are losing money because you haven't shipped his item. What do you say?

New Recruit: Butterfly Labs has shipped more than anyone else therefore we control the change in difficulty.

BFL Trainer: Well done, go to the shoutbox and make Ascii Art.

Sadly Nasser comes off as the most sensible and reasonable of all the BFL con artists and his post in this thread is still contradictory bs designed to placate.
