To be honest here, when I started to see how they treated anyone with a valid question of concern, I began to suspect BFL in Dec of 2012. I seem to always give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

After the second set of delays I asked for my money back. The company is a crook and I hope people realize this BEFORE they place pre-orders.

I have caught BFL's COO in so many lies that it would make a book.

My Avatar say's it all.

If you do not get the products on time, it is your right to ask for a refund and claim one.

Companies in this industry must look out for consumer rights and aim for high end consumer satisfaction in order to survive.

Unless they know it will be not long lasting business. BFL preffer find new custommers and get out of the old max by delaying shipment as long as possible.

And don't forget one thing, the hardware you have ordered in June, is obsolete, and substandard today. Last but not least, the amount of bitcoin, is set, it won't last forever. They will run out next year. Not much time left...

Peace.

After posting this non-sense , please refrain to post any advice till you actually know something about how bitcoin works.

I can't find sympathy for you anymore although you have fall int BFL trap.

It's definitely a 'meh' situation... they kept pushing back the release date, but at least they delivered a product eventually

Maybe BFL are using the preordered miners to mine for themselves in the meantime?

I don't really care how it works, and the mechanism by which it's generated.  My thorough understanding of the mechanism behind the bitcoins has nothing to do with this case.


 You stated, in absolute terms, that bitcoins "will run out next year". Regardless of how difficult or unfeasible it becomes to mine, the rate of release of new bitcoins into the economy remains relatively fixed, so that statement was completely and utterly wrong.

The amount of hashing power on the network has little-to-no impact on the rate of generation of new bitcoins, over the long term, as the system self-regulates and adjusts to keep the average rate of block release at 10 minutes.  So your analogy about excavators and shovels is pointless and asinine to your statement that bitcoins will "run out next year", as one has nothing to do with the other.  If you'd made the argument that BFL's pathetic rate of production and shipping will likely render almost all their new products useless due to difficulty increases, that would've made sense.

Do the other vendors (e.g., Avalon) have similar delays in their deliveries?

@ACHZMAN

Yea... I stated in absolute terms...

What's wrong with you people, were you growing up without any friends?

You ever heard the quote by Yogi Berra: "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymory", or "It's like deja-vu all over again". Well, that's called an American language. When we talk, it doesn't have to sound like somebody just quoted CISCO manual, unless you wanna sound like this.

We all know how long Bitcoins will last, it's all out there. But we might go, and dig for gold; in the Alaskan Klondike Territory, with a shovel and a pick. I'm certain the gold is still out there, and plenty of it, except you might need about a billion dollars, just to buy your mining equipment.
