My LS paid for itself.

You came out better than most.

Amen on that.  I paid 15 BTC for my Jalapeno and bought the $100 2 GH upgrade.  Since it was delivered in June, it has earned 7 BTC running 24/7/365.

Purchase price in BTC:  15, plus the $100 upgrade
Purchase price equivalent in $ (at that time):  $365
Purchase price equivalent in $ (today, BTC=$330): $5000
Payback equivalent in $ (today, BTC=330):  $2300

Looking at it from a $ standpoint, I did very well.

Looking at it from a BTC standpoint, I lost half my investment.

I doubt BFL will be calling me for a testimonial.  My Paypal chargebacks for the last two orders have just been finalized and the BFL site shows status as "canceled" (sic).



Rather than saying "Looking at it from a $ standpoint" say "When I include the appreciation of BTC in USD terms"
Most miners lump in BTC appreciation and include that as profit, when in fact that obscures whether or not your mining operation is a loss-maker.
A few ASIC devices have earned more BTC than was spent on them, but I don't think there are any BFL Singles that have.

Bitcoin is backed by the full faith and credit of YouTube comments.

They called me, told I have a promo code of 10% discoount on their 600 Ghs miner...
I replyed I would maybe buy if they give me a 80% discount code.. He offer me a 20% discount code.
I asked if their 600 Ghs is ready to ship, he replyed that "he think" that's the case, and I have to look to the BFL website.
I've took a look, and it still on pre-order.. Even with a 80% discount code, I would not pre-order this 600 Ghs !

I got a call from Rob, had a slight Indian accent in his tone.. but, I digress.

My phone conversation went like this:

Rob: Hello, I'm calling from BFL and it shows you purchased 60GH from us, are you still mining with it?
Me: No
Rob: Oh, why not?
Me: Because it's a waste of time
Rob: Why did you stop?
Me: When diff. hit 510m
Rob: Well, you know the difficulty is getting higher because Bitcoin is starting to grasp a larger audience
Me: True, but also because you guys delivered 1 year late and now I'm not making my investment back
Rob: Well, if you're interested I have a 20% off coupon exclusively for you for your next future purchase
Me: Does this coupon expire?
Rob: Yes, in 2 weeks™ (I AM NOT JOKING ABOUT HIS ANSWER)
Me: No, not interested.. I don't plan on purchasing anything from BFL.
Rob: Oh, okay.. have a good day.

They keep deleting my replies, but let me say it again. They called me 12 times. 12!!! And I'm on vacation in a foreign country so it would cost me money to answer the phone and tell them where they can stick their code. If they call me again tomorrow so help me God BFL is going to have their time wasted just like mine's been.

I got a call as well.  I answered and announced my name.

All I heard was a beep, then a disconnect.   Undecided

Same for me... I wish they would at lest say something if they are going to bother calling.

"BFL is not able to deliver on time, I am not interested in doing any business with BFL again."
I did hang up.

you need to steal them time.
I manage unwanted telemarketing calls always this way:
wow sounds interesting. Wait a minute, I just turn the stove off.
Put phone handset aside.... Cheesy

Yet another reason you have to be literally retarded to open up biz dealings with subhuman turds like this.

You basically give them permission to harass you by phone forever.

Enjoy that shit.  I hope the non-paid shill dumbfucks who have posted garbage to every BFL thread are suffering this now while they are hiding their heads in shame.  How does it feel to be so stupid?  Feel free to post answers here, feel free to wear a mask.
