Three month lead-time on batch 6? That seems a little excessive, and borders more on a straight pre-order than batch production.
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

It seems more of a "we may or may not produce this batch depending on sales" to me.
it is nice to see it priced better.

I think the June shipping is some form of smoke-screen for the S5 against the next-gen (S6?), thus banish the thought any potential customer may have to hold back until the next-gen is out!
 
With their track record, bitmain have never done pre-orders, and though their reputation in the industry precedes them, they are well aware of the community's attitude towards pre-orders, and wouldn't tarnish their reputation by doing one on existing hardware. I have to say I hope they have replaced the fan or tweaked /added settings for controlling the fan.

I agree


I wanted to pay by credit card and the link was screwed up. Went to batch 4 which was sold out. I was willing to buy some at $320 and then a $64 jump. That also increases the customs (duty) tax.

Same. Originally wanted to pay with USD, it asked me to do a SWIFT transfer, decided to go back and pay with BTC, price was raised Sad

So I either complete this SWIFT purchase in 3 days to honor the $320 price, or I have to pay +20% ?

Damnit. This is very uncool of Bitmain. Again.

From Bitmain FB:
"20 mins ago, we received a very important intelligence and we decide to increase the price of S5 by 20%. A certain competitor which we pay attention has not submit any mass production order to its wafer supplier. Only a small batch of pilot run has been submitted before the Chinese New Year. It has confirmed a long but uncertain guess that the aggressiveness get in trouble. The best time for mining bitcoin comes right now."

If it's about ASICMiner not shipping BE300's, I understand, but this makes it look like you're price gouging, again, which is the source of the frustration.

Yeah but on the positive side I believe this action helps lift btc price.

So If I stay at 10th hash total and price goes to 320 or 330 usd by their actions that works.

Of course if price crashes that sucks bt even that has a silver  lining to the cloud. the  high price prevents me from buying more gear so the crash hurts less.

The downside is if you  have almost no gear  and a pocket of cash to buy gear.  You are being pushed into buy some coins.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Unknowable. Speculation.

So If I stay at 10th hash total and price goes to 320 or 330 usd by their actions that works.

So using this logic, it's best for me to stay at 10TH and not buy anything right now ?

It's the principle. Raising the price three times in a few short hours is gouging. Plain and simple.

Not cool.

The ASICMiner BE300 snafu has been known since before they set pricing this morning originally at $320, and I don't buy that excuse for raising the price so quickly. BE300's were to ship in the June/July timeframe anyway.

@ Bitmain:

Are these brand new & unused - or are they from your mining farm?
