    To me, the Baikal A900 Giant is the best bet. 900MH/s @ 210 W for ~$2400 is great. It's pricey, so you may want to start with a Baikal Cube (300 MH/s @ 100W) for ~$1000

    You could use graphic cards. The only problem is that they are not nearly as competitive as ASICsare. The last time I checked graphic cards had less than 50 times The hashing rate that ASIC do, and consume much more Power. So in the end, it may be more expensive to use graphic cards. However, you do have the flexibility of mining just about any crypto there is, where ass in ASICs, The hardware is tied to its hashing algorithm

    But this thing(if it real) turns baikal miners in trash, so you need to take care of ROI if you decide to buy some.

    It's a fake, supposition, no official confirmation from manufacturer. Many strange mistake like 4blades x 1Mhash/sec in this video etc

    IMHO, the trash is ureal. Because a current dash network hashrate ~3,5TH that in baikal A900 ~4000pcs. Recalculating to ~350pcs of new ibelink, for example, if it's not a fake. (Also Russian seller said that he can sell only 200pcs for next 3 month). Total price of 350 pcs will be 3M usd! And it will only 50% of net hashrate.

    At 1400 usd u can buy new baical cube with 300m hash, ROI on calculator: https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculator/dash?HashingPower=300&HashingUnit=MH/s&PowerConsumption=140&CostPerkWh=0

    It's fake, @mrearthbound and I were talking about that yesterday and I found few things.. first of all you can see the hardware here: http://www.dualminer.com/iBeLink-DM384M-Dash-and-X11-Miner_p_36.html
    Second, when you see the video at around 2 minutes something, you can see the numbers for the rate and average of the rate for running more than 2 hours. It says that it's going at 1000+ MH/s but when you see the average beside it, it says 20-/+. So we're guessing that they either did something to the hardware to make that spike and posted the video or just fake.. because the average should be much higher than 20...

    This GPU is mostly made for gaming. It is totally operational for that but it is much better to get RX 500 generation. Or consider buying VEGA ;)
