I currently have two 32ghs r boxes and one 100ghs r box and im looking to add to my mining setup. I would prefer something that can be run via usb and is easy to setup. Power consumption dosent matter as i have free electricity.

For $300 you could actually get a fair amount of mining gear.  If you're looking for USB stuff, rockminer is probably a good place to start.  The "New R-Box" is somewhere around $75 for 110 GH/s, the R4 box is $150 for 500 GH/s, though you need to add a controller to that as well.  You might be able to swing an ASICMiner Tube used with a PSU for $300, but that may be a stretch.  If you're asking what the more power efficient gear is, unfortunately a lot of that is bigger and pricier.  Best you could do is probably get an Antminer S3, .

I'd be a little wary of sinking too much money into gear right now, several major manufacturers are about to release new chips.

Bitmain (Dec 27 2014) ~.5W/GH
ASICMiner (March-April 2015) ~.3W/GH
Spondoolies (Q1 2015)
Bitfury (This year claimed)

Why not do some real mining when you have free electricity, like buying Antminer S5. I dont think you will even ROI with free electricity if you are buying USB miner.
