Looks like the S3 is a better deal as its price is dropping.

The Tubes have also just been discounted for round 2 sales. The price is now 7.9 BTC for a set of 10 Tubes (minimum direct order quantity), so that's 0.79 BTC per Tube. That works out to 380.72 USD at 482 USD/BTC (bitstamp rate at time of writing).

No way I would buy another one of these...my first one doesn't even work yet.  If anyone wants to buy my tube fully assembled for .79 let me know... mine shipped with a dead ethernet controller.

.79 btc is very tempting pm sent

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

well we will deal with blade quality once I get them (fingers crossed).  
I most likely will test them one by one. I am hoping to build a 1.6th unit. .79 is hard to turn down.

i got
2.5 unit
4.15 unit
0.84 unit

they are hashing stable.

noticed strange thing, sometimes randomly one chip or more goes off.
it clears after restart

maybe periodic software controller reset  is solution for this?

Just hope it dosnt degrade like my cube did, same company, all chips would x, restart then ok for 3 to 10 days.
after 90 days it kept doing it more often then finally quit. Never overlocked, (wouldn't over clock anyway, straight to x).

Why are you paying 0.79 BTC for a malfunctioning Tube when you can get a new one for the same price? Canary will likely lower his prices any time now. Just keep an eye on the group buy thread.

The tube probably works...just the ethernet controller does not. I hope that it has 4 good boards, but I have no way to test it with out the controller.

My Controller is bad (maybe only this one).

When it is connected to mining devices and they were hashing you will be unable to change settings.
To perform save you have to power down controller, take off hashing cable, turn on and then save settings.
After that turn off controller and connect hashing cable overthise not all boards will be visible.

I do not reccomend hashing at ghash.io. They had 1 hour downtime yesterday and today 2 hours (uk1.ghash.io)

Unfortunatelly you cant set backup pool at controller so you will loose money as i did. (7.5TH x 3 hours).
Miners while not hashing are eating electricity (around 235W per tube) so you loose even more due to web interface.

I have changed pool to slush (mining.bitcoin.cz) but it was not easy. Smiley

Hi Everyone-

I started a thread where we can consolidate information from the various ASICMiner Tube -related threads. the thread is here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=768500

I added what info I could in the time I had to spare. All contributions are welcome. I will monitor that thread and add info to the OP as it is posted.
