So total per month for each one in $/kWh is

$350.00-USD 1x 280x 720kh/sec 0.09$/kWh 24/7 x 30 days = $16.20-USD
$1200.00-USD 12x usb miners 720kh/sec 0.09$/kWh 24/7 x 30 days = $1.50-USD

You would save $14.70 per month on your electricity bill, however you spent 650.00 more for the USB miners. It would take you 44+ months to make up for the cost.
So is it worth it? Not with AMD pumping out 20mn chips soon.

Also quick resell value of the 280x, around 300.  USB chips that only do two things? Not worried about ASIC for scrypt at all.

I pay 0.25$/kwh .. so for some, it would be a decent deal over a period of time Smiley

Since one USB device does 300 kh/s you don't need 12 of them to reach 720 kh/s Tongue

Do you think all sticks assembled will collect dust while waiting for their lucky owner?
Do you think that thousands of chips produced will patiently  wait to be transformed into USB sticks
I don't
But if you do there is nothing to be afraid of except diff going to the moon nothing ele

If someone wants to pay for it, sure full steam ahead,  esp the people who have high kWh numbers.   I won't.  You get no warranty from this manufacturer making the USB chips and try to resell it? You got a nitch market you gotta deal with.  Video cards are easy to resell.

Me either but it does not matter because there are no rules anymore in OTC mining

No, gpu mining is nowhere near dead. There are no commercial scrypt asics. The gpu mining game is running very strong right now.

There are what, 100 other coins and new ones popping up every day? If you are trying to make money mining, you need to put a little effort in. Thanks for the predictions though? Difficulty goes up, you get more GPUs, you earn more coin.... Not that hard.

thanks for your reply , i know there is 100 and may be coin out there but did you see PPC and other SHA-256 coins there Difficulty went up when bitcoin went up to , i think we need GPU only coin ,


again  this is my toughs Smiley .

GPU-mining still have several months of profitable mining even with the diff going up.
And as long as you can sell your gpu's when you feel they have outlived their purpose you will have good chances of getting your return of the investment and a profit out of it in the end.

It's win win.  If LTC follows BTC price pattern when ASICs come out then any coins you mine now with GPUs will be worth 10 times more.  If it doesn't then without the big price increase ASICs will not be worth buying and will either not be a factor or force the manufacturers to sell them cheap.

So is this a Scrypt ASIC or a SHA256 Asic and some other Scrypt chip together?

The chip is capable of both scrypt and SHA256; however since it is in beta testing they are having some stability issues with the dual mode.  Here is a link to the official website, unfortunately there is not very much information.

They were quoting about $2k for 10 units with 5 chips, doing 60khps per chip, which is $480 for 720khps, 40% of the cost you used above.

So it costs them say 1 to build and they sell it to you for 10!

Every time someone buys 1 from them they build 10 more to mine for themselves & you paid for it!!

Difficult skyrockets all miners loose out except them  ..
 
------


People are fixating on the fact that the power consumption of these things is low and how much more they can "possibly" make mining and they are missing the whole picture! You are getting fleeced!

You buy 1 and they make 10 for them and they jump on the network and take your "possible" earnings too.

Its like paying up front to get hit in the head with a baseball bat and then you are letting them come back every day thereafter and arse rape you again by taking your future profits by mining themselves! They are whats looking like a botnet on mc! They are already gaining 100MH's / day!

Dam are people that stupid or what!

Greedseed pfft..
