I know it's a little late, but it might be useful for some.

We have finally got our hands on a Butterfly Labs ASIC miner.  As most of you know, production release dates have been a enormous problem for BFL.  The miner we are testing was ordered in March 2013, it was received October 31st 2013. As you can imagine, the wait time essentially nullified any chance of making a quick return on investment.  With ASICs flooding the market, the mining difficulty is pacing with the production numbers.  Want to make a good return on your mining investment?  Get "fast hashing" hardware quickly.

Unboxing the unit was also an ear opening experience, as I could hear screws rattling & sliding around inside the case.  Loose metal objects floating around powered electronics can be an expensive mistake.  Fearing it may fry the electronic inside, I removed the offending screws, and proceeded to put the unit back together.  I then remembered that BFL had to change their original design of the Single & Little Single ASIC units.  They had to double the case size, to accommodate the 30 & 60GH/s boards.  The resulting internal case design & assembly appeared to be rushed into production.

Are you going to get the $4680 unit that can only crunch 600GH/S when the difficulties went up yesterday?

At least it's a good news that the product they made stand up to the spec stated in March of 2013!  How many BTC are you making a day from this unit?

I won't purchase the 600GH/s card from them.  I'll wait and see if they can hit their future targets before I jump on that train again.

BTC's a day with 30GH/s is around 0.02 btc.  Or approximately $7.00 per day.  Of course that will change at the next rise in difficulty.

Just like you mentioned, BFL does have a bad reputation in the BTC community. The other mining rigs will be more popular if they changed the design aspect just my IMO.

Ebay is flooded with newly arrived miners from this Spring's pre-orders.  If the miners were mining enough BTC for them, we won't see this many sellers trying to recover what they paid in for.

You may not be able to get Refund from BFL or other vendors but Ebay might be a place to get a full refund for the unsuspected buyers when they realized they just lost $1,000.
