I'm truly surprised SPT managed to sell any SP20's at all. The value it offered has always been terrible compared to the competition and I've been pointing that out (with the maths to back it up) since it was announced.

Again coming here after I poke AM in their thread. I should make a counter for this. This is the fourth time Smiley

Being so surprised shows how clueless you are regarding everything and I will reply to you with a quote from another AM shareholder:
for each seller, there is a buyer.

I cannot express how glad I am I sold my SP20 immediately for exactly what I paid for it given they have 0 regard for those who purchased early (as show in the lowering of prices 1 week after delivery without equal compensation to early supporters).

Great hardware, shitty management.

Don't trust any exchange!

The hardware was actually shit too, hence why they had to stop selling it to sort the problems out.

Lowered the price 1 week after delivery, but shipping is one week later so that makes it 2 weeks. Also you should know by now that mining hardware price is always going down. I don't think you were expecting the same price until the end of the year.

The hardware was actually shit too, hence why they had to stop selling it to sort the problems out.

They had issues with shipping, not with the actual hardware, but yes feel free to spread your anger/shit here.

Sounds like it was a problem with the actual design to me:

We found out that dropping the SP20 package may cause the boards to shift.

We got complaints from about 2% of non palletes customers. Most of the units can be fixed at home by replacing the boards.

We halt individual package shipments for one week, until we'll solve the issue.

If you got such SP20, contact support@ for miner assembly guide. If the SP20 was actually damaged, we'll RMA.

Guy
...
Noticed that the boards sat at an angle inside the case, so I opened it up and re-aligned. The boards are not screwed in or secured with anything except some grooves raised up from the enclosure. Pretty cheap design, which is prone to board shifting if handled rough in transit.
...

We'll ship replacement SP20 after fixing the package issue next week.

Can you expand a little in layman terms what the problem was? I'm considering buying a few, but have been holding out due to this.

Thanks  Smiley

In previous revision of the SP20 mechanical kit, the hashing boards may shift during transit due to the fact that they were not secured enough inside the box.
Most of the customers that were encountered the issue were able to solve by simply opening the box and press down the hashing board.

Thanks for the reply. Is the firmware still under development, or is it now final? Also, are they p2pool compatible - as are your other models?

Thanks again.

Zvisha always continue to tweak and improve the firmware. It's p2pool compatible.

I stopped arguing with that idiot long time ago. Hes too fcking dumb to understand this simple concept. Infact i say most noobs buying hardware right now are actually expecting BTC price to rise in order for ROI.

Not sure why the aggression. I am not advocating hardware purchase to everyone, but it shouldn't be a surprise that hardware is clearly being sold to people in areas of cheap electricity (<$0.10/kwh) and/or those who are very bullish on their calculations of roi regarding the future bitcoin value and hashrate.

Personally, I pay $0.14/kwh and have not purchased hardware in the last two months. In fact, I've been liquidating much of my hashrate due to the good resale value in BTC

Not sure why the aggression.

Shouldn't worry, its his modus operandi. Could be mild Tourettes mixed in with narcissistic tendencies. I don't put many people on ignore.

Hmm, I was thinking about ordering another S4. Now I'm considering 2x SP20s. Do the SP20s ship out same day?

Edit: Sorry, reading fail. Site says shipments start on Nov. 18th.

@ Sponds ... Just an observation ...

The new price on the SP20 at $795 with an additional $80 discount for repeat customers only lasts for 72 hours.

The sales email says "Not sure which power supply to select? We'll be adding a PSU guide in the next couple of days..".

Now PSUs have been discussed here on the forum, but not all of your customers are members here. If it takes 48 hours to post PSU recommendations on your site, then only 24hrs remain to order (presuming the PSU guide does get listed in 48hrs).

People will need time to research costs etc.

You are lucky to get a discount. I don't know who is a repeat customer (do you need to order every single machine?), because I am a customer, but did not get any emails yet.

for the last time, you cant factor in future bitcoin value in the calculation.
