Nice miners to learn about the ins and outs at a reasonably low entry point.

At this point I think buying USB miners is not about the ROI but rather about helping new miners enter the market without throwing 1000$ into a black hole. Just my take on them at this point.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321783.msg3446862#msg3446862

Shipping today...nice.

Nice positive spin to put on it, but we should not be encouraging people to join with a negative income tax.  If someone wants to get into BTC they'd be better off buying the same amount as the price of a unit that won't pay for itself so they can make transactions, try paying for something online, etc.  

Dude...

What part of I agree you can't ROI and these things are nice stocking stuffers is spin?

You really lost the plot you are arguing with no one at this point and just talking to hear yourself talk.


There is no point in helping new miners enter the market purely to ensure folks who made hardware make their money back.  Props to folks who make hardware, but again, mining is a toxic part of BTC right now and there are much more beneficial things that a person can do to "get into BTC" than to sink money into mining.

Suppose you want 30 Gh/s. Here is one choice:

11.5 Red fury units for just about 6 BTC, which is just about $1200.

Here is another choice:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Butterfly-labs-30-gh-bitcoin-miner-In-Hand-/380749003863?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58a668bc57

30 GH/S BFL delivered to your door for $685.00 Same hash rate for roughly half the price.

So yeah, buy one Red Fury if you only want one. But only if all you will ever want is one. They need to dash the prices in half before they are more attractive than other available options.

Or buy one blade eruptor for 1.1 BTC, don't have to deal with any hubs that way either. More than double the hashrate for the same price, and no $$ wasted on hubs.

Plus you can overclock them  Grin

I would like some but the price is far too high. For 0.6btc I could buy 14 USB erupters and have double the hashing power.

I have to agree completely.  when I got my first blade it only took me 10 minutes to have it up and hashing for me....my USB eruptors took significantly longer!

Yes, you need 12V (doesn't have to be ATX) and you could even jack that from your PC's power supply if you have the extra overhead. You also need fans, at least one. It would be cheaper to power and cool a blade than buying a suitable hub for 10gh/s of these USB things. It would be more cost effective to scale a blade setup than USB as well. Imagine 108gh/s of these USB things!

Drivers for block eruptors are a extreme pita, plus I've seen hundreds of posts from newbies running ten deep on a 2A 5V supply wondering why they don't have any coins yet.

Nice color. I like the way they look but one question. 

Why is the heatsink vents running down to the base of the hub instead of across the device which would give it better air flow?

The usb miners that I have running right now have a fan blowing across the rows of miners, not straight down into the hub.  You need air flowing not running into a wall.

If I can do it, anyone can!  Thankfully there a lot of experienced people on these forums willing to help or I'd still be ripping my hair out, lol.

Probably because the majority of users are using those little white USB fans and are positioning them to blow down onto the top of the sticks.  Not the best way to do it but the most practical.

Thanks, we spent a little extra to make them uber sexy.

I tested a variety of fans and have settled on the smallest, lowest airflow model.  The miners aren't even warm.

this isn't good for my chi

I want one just to display it next to the two machines with a total of 8x ATI Radeon 6950's eating 1800w, which hashed at the same speed back in the good old days.

Even at 0.49 these are WAY too expensive.

Even at 0.25 they will only ever make back 50% of their investment:

Theses would have been awesme and would have sold like hotcakes 2 months ago. Now? Not so much.
