According to this review, the 5-chip Gridseed Miner pulls almost 60W mining Litecoin and only does around 350KH/s...

Is there something I am missing?  Why are people spending $300 on this ASIC, when a ($110-150) Radeon 7850 has equivalent specs and about the same hashrate (ie 350-380 KH/s)??

325 kh/s at 10W is way better to host for heat and power than 250Kh/s @ 10-20x the power and heat.

Just because you changed your joke to a somewhat real hosting share program, don't start lying about stats.

Gridseed is doing 300 khs at 50-60 watts these days. They claimed 10 watts, but none of the reviews show that low power use.

Even a $200 ($230 now) R9-270 will do 450khs at 150 watts. Hardly 10-20x the power.

Ok then.

All of my photos and readings for power are in the thread.  You sir are lying.

at 300-350Khs per device on the controller, on windows and on linux I have verified by several users 6-10Watts per device.

Show me a review that shows more power for single scrypt mode?

So what you meant to say is if you buy 10 and have the correct controller setup, you can get it to run in low power mode. Where can you do that if you only run one? 

I really don't give a shit about it, and don't want to waste time arguing with you since you are just trying to sell something.

This is the article I read about them, I see that some firmware or software has been updated now.
http://cryptomining-blog.com/1158-first-impressions-from-the-gridseed-5-chip-scrypt-asic/

Still, power is cheap, and the gridseed stuff is overpriced. It would take a long time to make up the difference in power usage vs initial cost.

Who is this directed at?

If you have one you follow the instructions in the guide, any recent guide, it will run at 6-10 watts.

Still, power is cheap, and the gridseed stuff is overpriced. It would take a long time to make up the difference in power usage vs initial cost.

Here is a link that shows you how to run in scrypt only mode which is what many are doing to achieve lower power consumption of 8watts per unit. If you run in dual mode or sha256 mode you will use the 60watts.
As shown here you do not need a controller, can simply hook the unit up to an existing PC. Power may be cheap depending on where you live, it is a wide range really.  For me power cost doubles in the summer months where I would not want to run a GPU farm as it eats into more profits trying to power it and keep it cool versus a device like this. Speaking from experience, sold the GPU farm to run year round with devices like this.

Ah so we are in agreement that 6-10W per device is possible?

I think the benefit from a gridseed miner is that you can let it run, without the need of having a motherboard, a psu, ram, cpu, case ... what ever you need to host 4 or 6 of your R9-270, also not to mention that the gpus will get much hotter then those little miners ...

I can't speak for others but I bought these because they don't heat up my place.  I've got a GPU rig which sucks 1200watts out of the wall and has been a good "heater" for my small apt.  Unfortunately power is not cheap where I live so I thought the trade off of higher price for gridseeds was worth the:

1. Reduced power consumption
2. Reduced heat (especially in the crazy hot/humid spring/summer)
3. Reduced noise (once I gut the fans off since I'm scrypt only mining)

Each person makes up their own minds on what's right for them.  Honestly I thought I'd toss out my GPU rig once I got my gridseeds, but after the instability of the controller and a burned out cheap PSU, I figured my GPU rig is sort of a fallback/insurance strategy...so I decided to keep it around a little longer.  I was hoping to sell it off for about $1500 which I would count against the cost of my gridseeds...my GPU rig has already paid itself off and the proceeds from it allowed me to afford buying the gridseed miners...so all in all not bad and worth it in my opinion.

Just checked, my 10 Gridseed units running at about 3500 khs total in scrypt only mode doing 70 watt on the wall. It's less than 7 watt per 300 khs.

10 Gridseed miners running between 3300-3500khs (varies due to the switching pool I'm using) pulling 100watts (thats 10 miners, 1 usb hub, 1 RasPi, and 2 PSUs) in total.  I've also got the frequency set to 850, so I'm sure that pulls extra watts vs the 7watts/300khs on default 600.
