Out of the 11 I've bought over the last month, one had a bad controller, and one was used with some dust on it.  The used one runs like a champ so I have no complaints there.  It took about a week to get a replacement of the controller, and I was really worried because they had terrible communication, but I was able to RMA it and they even sent some swag.  Seems shipping times are back to normal and the payment processing is working fine now.

I always overclock to 375, but you're looking at 50W extra for 10-15 more Gh/s, which might not be worth it if you're electricity is expensive.

Overclocked to 375, your warranty is void? yes?

Yup. Any overclocking and your warranty is void.

My first two miners were brand new, the third miner was used before... Had to clean up the fan and the heatsinks because of dust Sad Seems Bitmain is sending out the miners they have been using themselves.

Edit: just received the package tracking number from DHL, expecting delivery on April 4 (The Netherlands).

Did you order recently? I've bought 2 Antminers 2 days ago, still waiting for a tracking number.

The order was created on March 31, 9.00 GMT+1 (Netherlands), so if you ordered before that time..

But it happened before that UPS was at my door eventhough I did not received any shipment notification, so maybe you'll be suprised today or tomorrow haha  Cheesy

If you go to your account when logged in there is a section above orders called Coupons. Click t and if you have any they are show there. You get them from Bitmain for being a regular customer or if there is any problems they are given like compensation for delays or late orders etc.

My 2 S1's were brand new, and work fine.  As the electricity price here depends on the time of day, I sometimes under-clock them to 325, to save some 'juice'.
The last one came by UPS, before I saw the tracking info (after receiving it I checked the web site again, and there it was...Smiley

The warranty isnt worth shit to begin with after RMA costs and time lost mining. Just OC them!

^^this comment is spot on^^If its dead than yeah, no choice. But s1 is reliable as hell so there should be no problem with overclocking.

If the rumors are true of the pboc cutting off accounts that exchange in bitcoin, I would expect Bitmain might have to move to Fiat based.  Just speculation on my part but could be why S1 is out, no batch 3 S2's yet or additional U2+.  May need time to properly price in fiat and adjust accounts so he and us don't get screwed.  Thoughts?  Pure speculation on my part.

I agree I just got two S1's  in yesterday. But I also trade BTC in addition to mining.  With the price as low as it is for S1's and some reports of exchanges saying china banks are cutting off accounts related to BTC, how else could he exchange it?  Ie if I get more than 50k in orders a day I am at risk of currency swings since cant exchange at the price as soon as I get it.  I don't know if this affects Bitmain currently but if it does I would hedge and look to a solution that helps him and us as customers out.  Ultimately I hope the PBOC rumors aren't true or as harsh but appriciate a stance that doesn't leave me or my hardware supplier holding a smelly bag of sh....

IIRC Bitmain was looking for a private party to exchange their BTC.  It was a separate thread a month or so ago, so if that went through that may help mitigate the threat of Chinese banks freaking out.  Assuming, of course, that the private party doesn't run into the same issue....

i was getting ready to order a few as well in a few days.

this really messes up my plans... looking for something else to buy now, but nothing that makes sense to me at the moment. prices are still insane right now, even with the hype settling down and all.
any sugestions?
