Few things to keep in mind:

- These ASIC providers mostly have shady histories as companies as far as delivery dates. Butterfly Labs is among the worst, google for more info... you may send in your money and get nothing for 6 months or 12 months or ever.

- Anything that sounds like a money printing press is either already in very high demand or vaporware

- There are people who have massive spreadsheets of energy & operating costs vs. expenditures on hardware & rent of space... meaning people who give mining 100% of their attention are streets ahead of us who just dabble or read about it casually

- Getting into mining casually and dropping hundreds or thousands on specialized hardware is asking to be taken advantage of, sort of like daytrading stocks casually

- It is the very specific ASIC you are paying for, not the surrounding hardware. It was well known for a long time that you could produce an ASIC to mine bitcoins and totally destroy GPUs but it took months and months and months for the chips to actually be produced and placed into functional hardware.

Yeah, i wasn't gonna like go order em today or anything. I'll always research before spending that kind of money on any hardware. Sounds like i'ma close that Butterfly Labs tab and never open it again. Thanx

Any actual reputable companies?

 

I understand about the power consumption. And also that there are people that have invested 6 figures over the past few years and pretty much own the mining scene. That's not what i was intending by any means. But you definitely, absolutely, 100% just made me extremely curious about ASIC's. And i'm gonna have that nag in the back of my brain now of whether i should get involved or just keep letting it pass by. A few grand is a worthwhile investment if the results are actually what they claim. It's too late in the game for anybody to consider turning mining into an actual career at this point tho, IMO anyway...

 

Thanx again for all the helpful info bro. That's like 4 +reps today. I'm starting to feel like a groupie =\

LOL maybe someday soon I'll be able to sell in the marketplace! Thanks.

Personally I'd forget the thought of ASICs unless you want to start spending time in the mining forums and not OC.net. There was a giant rush on ASIC machines 8 or 10 months ago when btc went over $100 and I haven't followed the craziness since then. So I'm not sure if there are any reputable companies now or not.... that was what I meant about the mining forums. The info changes daily and I think most of the best ASIC deals are bought through the forums where people are doing group buys of the chips and making their own hardware and selling it on the forum.

WOW I have learned a lot with the past 8 or so post thanks guys at least I now have a idea what all this fuss is about... it does sound like Excessive Insanity to me and normally I would be jumping in with both feet but I have a lot of other things that I need to do and learn first so I guess I will miss this craze...
