lucky and successful
This is where hard work meets opportunity. Not many people were calling BFL on the phone in October or November 2011 and doing there due diligence. I spoke about this a lot when everyone was trolling BFL before the singles shipped. Even though they made mistakes with the singles as far as the hash rate and wattage, they have under promised and OVER DELIVERED on the mini rigs.
People still bash BFL for making a mistake like they have never made mistakes in their own lives. I don't understand this at all and feel they would only be doing this if they were purchasing BFL equipment themselves and spreading FUD to try and keep some kind of perceived competitive advantage.
This, to me, is an ignorant approach as you are ultimately hurting a legitimate company's reputation for your own (perceived) personal gain.
