I was looking at Black Arrow Software's mining hardwares.They are much cheap compared to Butterflylabs.Black Arrow's 2000 Ghash/sec is $4900 where Butterflylabs 600 Ghash/sec is $4680.Also Black Arrow's rentable rigs are also much cheaper than Butterflylabs.

We all know Butterflylabs is very famous,but does this mean Black Arrow isn't good enough to do business with,is it like the cheaper the worse?I am thinking of renting their hardware when they are available.I would like to hear about this from you who know and are experienced about mining hardwares.

BFL are a pack of shitsters. I wouldn't buy another thing off them if they were the last company on the planet.

If you're going to rent, just go to CEX.IO and buy some hashing power.  If you get bored with it you can sell it easily.

If you want to own hardware KNC is probably the lowest risk, then Cointerra is you want to try more risk.

I don't see BFL shipping 600GH/s Monarchs before KNC comes out with 600s or Cointerra puts out 2TH units.

I hope the OP really reads the forums and does research before handing money over to BFL.

OP use the Search!

Also, I've ordered from both KnC and Cointerra and the answer is Yes, the cost structures amongst the hardware providers is sometimes of an entirely different scale.

For the companies that do actually ship, I'm more then sure they'll guarantee the hashrates you paid for and as well allow for under & overclocking.
