Hi people,

Let me start by saying I am one of those people that got fooled by the "shipping in 2 months" promise, stated on BFL's website during the checkout process. I ordered three jalapenos in early April, needless to say I was rather foolish in thinking they'd arrive on time and make their money back quickly, but they did finally come in the mail. Also, they're operating at almost 8GH/s per unit instead of the advertised 5.5GH/s so that's always nice. My order number is 39686 to anyone trying to gauge the timing on their order.

I don't enjoy being a BFL customer any more than I did before, thus far my experiences with support have been pretty bad, but at least they came and I can say I was only mildly scammed.

I vow never to use this space for sleazy referrals, gambling, spam, or to beg for handouts.

I bought a 5Gh/s pre-order way back in April, and then upgraded it to 7Gh/s.

Then I bought an earlier 5Gh/s pre-order via BFL's marketplace.

The 5Gh/s unit landed up last weekend and was hashing away between 6.5-7.5Gh/s.

I am waiting for the 7Gh/s unit now.

- Either this 7Gh/s is going to hash at 8-10Gh/s; or
- BFL simply gave up on the 5Gh/s and has started shipping out 7Gh/s to all Jalapeno customers. In which case, I am very unhappy about having paid for the upgrade from 5 to 7.

When you say mildly scammed, you mean you don't feel bad losing $200 out of the $274 you spent vs. being a MiniRig customer?  Huh

Yep, I finally received my paperweight last week as well.  It is hashing away at ~7.5Gh, for whatever that is worth.  Roll Eyes

Ahh those USB coffee warmers? BFL = empty promises. In business trust is key, and they have lost all trust and goodwill from most of the community.

Looking to review Bitcoin / Crypto mining Hardware.

That's better than the 55GH/s I'm getting out of my single which was supposed to do 60.  Good thing it only cost me 208+ BTC.  Made back about 55BTC of that thanks to downtime with a 2 week turnaround on RMA.  Cry

Enjoy the coffee/tea warmer.... it could have been worse.

I received mine recently. I was one of the suckers who paid an extra $100 and now I find out everyone is getting a 7.5+GHz machine. I'm in Canada so I had to pay an extra $31 in taxes. They don't even bin the chips.

2013-04-25 Ordered 5 GH/s ASIC Miner ("Jalapeno")
2013-06-14 Paid for 2 GH/s upgrade to 5 GH/s ASIC Miner
2013-11-14 Received 7 GH/s ASIC Miner

cgminer is showing it running at about 6.8 GH/s.

I'm stunned: I paid an extra $100 USD for a 2 GH/s upgrade... and people that didn't pay for that are getting it for free? 

Apart from that, and the nearly 7 month wait, I'm pleased with the unit.  It's very nicely finished, a good looking little cube.  It's fairly loud, but the noise isn't too bad, perhaps a little improved from the Coding in My Sleep Unboxing review that I saw originally?  However, it still drowns out the KnCMiner Jupiter that it is sitting next too... that Jupiter is one quiet rig! 

Makes me appreciate what KnCMiner have accomplished: I ordered my Jupiter 2 months AFTER the Jalapeno, and received the Jupiter 20 days BEFORE the Jalapeno!  Oh, and the Jupiter is 80 times faster.

I got my Jalapeno a few weeks ago. I didn't pay for the upgrade but it was a 7.5 GH/s unit not the 5 GH/s one and so that was a surprise. I could sell it now on eBay for $500 to $600. Making almost double my investment. But I won't because I am a miner and I like mining. Seeing the little guy hashing away makes me smile.

As much as people complain about BFL, it's the only mining equipment I've bought (besides my old gpus) that has ROI'd.
