No I mean 8 thousand 9 hundred and ninety-one dollars not 20BTC.

I shopped for a GOOD deal on the Group Buy threads found a great deal... do you need to? I didn't say that I am just sharing what I did.

Jimmy... seriously if you don't like my good news that is ok.

I fail to understand how losing btc due to preorders is good news.

How can you bash BFL when literally every single person who preordered their 65nm hardware made a profit in fiat? Some even reached a positive ROI in btc.

No I mean 8 thousand 9 hundred and ninety-one dollars. Did I buy BTC to pay for my unit? Did I buy BTC in 2012? Let us just say I am ok with the 9K I spent not the 20 BTC you think I spent.

I shopped for a GOOD deal on the Group Buy threads found a great deal... do you need to? I didn't say that I am just sharing what I did.

Jimmy... seriously if you don't like my good news that is ok... but rewording or skewing what I post doesn't really detract from the good deal I got. What can you get now? I don't know let me know.
---- snip ----

I guess you forgot your own praise for me getting 12 TH/s for 9K. Well ok I guess you are sad about AM shares. I guess that must be it. I personally do not get all the FUD directed at SPtech. Anyone with calculator can figure out what is or isn't a good deal. I got a decent deal. Hopeful August delivery is on time. I have faith that SPtech will do what they have promised. If they deliver as promised then I am ok with my 9K invested being set up in Norway hashing away as part of the hosting / pool etc we are setting up there as our first node. Not the only iron I have in the fire Jimmy. I am not sad if SPTech does well like you seem to be and that shill like behavior smells a bit to me. Why all the hate?

If finally SP Tech delivers on time, then they will really be far ahead with the SP30.

There is nothing to compare with it.

All is Mine!

It's not FUD it's just bad business to go with preorders and inflated website pricing.

It is not bad business when you deal with people that actually deliver as promised. Was it bad business to gouge people price wise? Let me say it again in this thread like I did another, you didn't seem to me to be the consumer advocate when those numerous group buys, of some people selling AM products, were most clearly profiteering off the community were you? Funny eh?

Seems to me you are protecting your own interests rather than being a Ralph Nader'esque' crusader for the little guy. You do know we see through this right?

You are not fooling too many people with this attack guised as consumer advocacy.

Like KNC? They technically shipped on time and overspec yet I don't see neptune owners particularly overjoyed.

I do believe the sp30 will be another solid piece of hardware and they would have no problem selling it from stock but unfortunately they decided to go with the sales method that screws over customers 9 times out of 10.

When did this happen? As far as I know AM products have always been sold from stock for prices people were willing to pay. Just about everyone who bought an AM machine made a profit in USD and some even reached ROI in BTC.

Just like how your attacks on technobit were totally because you didn't want people to get scammed?

I have nothing to gain here. I am just letting people know my (and countless others) experience with preorders.

It's a shame since it seemed like the entire community was finally finished with preorders.

It's not FUD it's just bad business to go with preorders and inflated website pricing.

So you as a shareholder in a competitor company are stating that what SP-Tech is doing is it's bad business. I'm sorry, but who are you to say what is good and what is bad business for them. It looks like it's doing them good since they are not changing anything.

I can come and say that it's bad business for AM to not issue dividends after they did it weekly for a good period of time, anyone can come and claim anything actually, but you are the least persons that should do it about SP-Tech considering the above. So what exactly is your issue here? It seems that you are the only one complaining and since you are sleeping in bed with the competitor well it's simply useless to state anything about how should SP-Tech run its business.

Like KNC? They technically shipped on time and overspec yet I don't see neptune owners particularly overjoyed.

I do believe the sp30 will be another solid piece of hardware and they would have no problem selling it from stock but unfortunately they decided to go with the sales method that screws over customers 9 times out of 10.

Please share why should Neptune owners be overjoyed. They delivered on time, but not in 1 case as they promised and many had problems with PSU switching off.

As for SP30 customers well SP-Tech managed to sell out all August pre-orders in a period of time when nobody else is doing such long pre-orders (bitmain excluded with their 2 weeks S3 pre-orders).

What about your AM shares? I do believe that FC is tricking the shareholders with expenses that bring money to his partners, but not to the shareholders.

It's not strange. There were cases where e-mails aren't being delivered. Stop spreading FUD!

Never bought KnC and that is way off topic since we are talking about SPTech.

Have yet to see SPTech cause a single customer grief and not fix it somehow to the customers satisfaction. I have 2 SP30's on order and I am hopeful they will deliver as promised. You seem to think bashing / questioning SPTech's business practices is relevant? I go off what they have shown to the community not on what you think is right or wrong. I value that SPTech has met all their obligations and made all their customers happy so far as I can tell.

That is the bottom-line. Here is hoping I am just one more happy customer and at this point there is zero evidence to support they will fuck the SP30s delivery up. There is however plenty of posts from you trying to get people not to buy SPTech products. I wonder why?

jimmothy is just bitter because ASICMiner botched the design of their Gen3 chip and ended up with increased power usage and a chip that is no longer competitive with Bitmain. The ASICMiner Gen3 miners I've seen to date look like amateur, second rate products compared to the S3. ASICMiner shareholders are very biased and seem to lack objectivity when looking at the current mining landscape.

It looks like folks who gambled on the Roadstress SP30 group buy may end up having their bet pay off. I still very much doubt that a SP30 for 5k with a September delivery is a good buy, but a 4.5k SP30 with an early August delivery is looking like a very good buy.

Simulations are one thing, and final performance often differs from simulated numbers, but it sounds like we'll know if the SP30 performs according to specification within a week.

(i think i'm not the first to ask this question, but .... TLDR  Grin)

Thx !

Early August will be delivered until around the first half of August :p

As there are around 500 units in early August batch, it will obviously take some time.

I'm using it as an example to show you how a company who delivered perfectly on time and 10% over spec actually fucked their customers.

I have to agree. From what I've seen spondoolies has had outstanding customer service. But that does not mean I cannot bash/question their bad business practices. Spondoolies is not immune to criticism like some of you seem to think.

I think they would be a nearly perfect example of how an asic manufacturer should be if they had not taken preorders and inflated website prices. (and affiliate advertising)

The thing is they don't even need to fuck up for them to fuck over their customers via preorders.

I would actually recommend buying SP hardware if it was sold from stock and for a reasonable price.

KnC fucked their customers when they decided to make 1 (or 2) big ass datorhalls for selfish mining.

I wonder sometimes why european/US manufacturers seem to unable to fully grasp the idea of selling from the stock or a short (2-3wk) preorder.
What exactly is the difference? Is it small manufacturing facilities, risk aversion, upfront funds?
European/US asic makers also do not care about market share and in one case (KnC) are unable to adjust the price to market conditions.
I am still at a loss as to why KnC did not continue to sell Jupiter into jan-Feb or why spond did not continue to sell Sp-10 as long as it was selling with a profit (maybe it wasn't, I don't know). This seems to completely contradict almost any other business that I know of. Typically, you continue to sell an older model if you are still making money with it until there is a new model. I don't see anything unique to bitcoin that negates this possibility.

The loss due to KNC increasing the network hashrate by 4% pales in comparison to the loss due to the preorders.

I guarantee nobody would have paid $2/gh for in stock hardware at the end of June with or without the added 4% network hashrate.

Just like how nobody would pay $12k for an sp30 even if it was delivered yesterday.

but they would pay ~9K, maybe slightly more due to a compact form and better energy efficiency.
