I've found their customer support to be very responsive, if you send them an email I'm sure they'll tell you what the current lead time on all of their products is.

FWIW as of three weeks ago lead time on the singles was 9 weeks (Order placed on 5/25 is expected to be shipped around 8/1)

Mini rig lead time is 12-15 weeks. They're a solid company, but only buy from them if you can bear the wait.

I think you should review this information and include it in your calculations of how much you are willing to wait.

Valid information, but it is implied that you have to trust any entity you hand over money to.

I wonder how much time it will take until mem or Galambo come on here and say the BFL Singles don't exist therefore the Mini Rigs will also never exist.  Roll Eyes

Trust aint needed if its COD aka you get something the moment you hand over the bling. Wink

Depending on how fast you can run, I agree Wink

I say GO FOR IT !

Gigavps will have a total of 8 Mini-Rigs when his all arrive, so if you can swing it, you might want to consider picking up 2 of them and dominate !
