Another Avalon ASIC Bitcoin miner has been delivered

AvalonLogoAfter weeks of waiting another Avalon ASIC bitcoin mining device has been delivered,  now there are a total of three Avalon ASIC Miners units in operation.  The other two are the one delivered to Jeff Garzik and another that was delivered to The Bitcoin Foundation.

This seems to confirm the rumours that a unit had been delivered to someone in China, the user is called Fatpan and he posts pictures of the unit as it arrived on a Chinese Forum (Google translate may help you with that link).

From the pictures, contained below it seems that this unit has arrived in kit set form.

Hopefully this means that the disruptions caused by Chinese New Year are over and other units may begin making their way to users desktops.

Even with the recent difficulty increase to 3,651,012 it is going to take just days for this unit to pay for itself and start making a return.

CORRECTION: It was not delivered like that, Fatpan just took it apart to see what made it tick.

Neil Fincham, the MineForeman has over 20 years experience in the computer industry and runs the MineForeman mining operation for the co-op members.

    ” it seems that this unit has arrived in kit set form” it was not arrived in kit set form, actually fatpan was just curious how it was inside.

    if your new to bitcoin mining and you bought one of these things, do u think a person who was new to bitcoin mining could figure it out or do you thinkl you would have to have prior computer backround to set it up and can it be used with a windows based laptop

    Ok.. Heres the thing.. Avalon has essentially created a Golden Egg Laying Goose.. That they are selling.. in exchange for golden eggs only…

    Why bother selling the goose when you have all the eggs you want? Create a new one.. Just.. PLUG IT IN…

    Or? What am i missing here?

    My fraud sensors are going apeshit.

    I know if i could build a device that when plugged in would generate money.. I wouldn’t be selling them. I’d keep building them till i filled a warehouse.
