I can't say in regards to the first question as I paid over $5k for mine almost a year ago and have received nothing. Other users have made posts claiming they've recently received their X3s but that they're exploding and bursting into flames. I've heard they're 1W per GH at the wall before they go up in flames.

BA recently blamed the PSU manufacturer for all their woes but after the most recent set of X3 units to go up in smoke it's now the shipping companies fault and there was no fire just smoke from a shorted transistor and light from a blinking LED.

My opinion on the X3 is the most biased you can find as I've been scammed out of thousands of dollars and have not received one.

To sum it up, I think that would be a no. With all the people who been burned literally and figuratively its best to stay away from these.

Just don't. Almost everything about BA is really bad.

2 month technical supprt replies, bad customer support, bad (proper shitty) management.
Unacceptable

Look elsewhere. They're a fire hazard, have randomly exploding caps, a proprietary PSU that is known to fail. They're also very large for the amount of hashing power you get, two 4u rackmount cases for 2TH.

There are many better options out there.
