Ordered one :):)
So what is the price and payment methods?

soleo, can this miner work woth PCI-E 6pin power connectors at PSU side? Definetely you know that most of miners have server PSUs modded for mining and equipped with 6pin connectors...

This miner probably will pull only 320W but if there will not be Pi on board pinidea will provide sd image for ours Raspberry Pi?
So also must have PSU and the Pi + software in order to start run that miner.
There will be any support available, download section, manual etc?
We'll send the mining software, manual and instructions to buyers to their email addresses.
This means that in addition cost for us who already made order, need to buy something else for put in work miner. That is not mentioned in the specification: (Power Supply: ATX12V required). Is this correct?
In the specification, "ATX 12 V required" exactly means that you have to use a PSU from yourself.

So what is the price and payment methods?

Both PCI-E 6 Pin and 8 Pin would work.

Soleo mentioned they are shipping them using SF Express. Anyone have experience with receiving packages shipped that way in the US, how does it get delivered? Never seen a SF delivery vehicle around my area so I assume they hand the package off to another delivery company for the final portion of the shipment?

Guys, how can we order such a non-cheap device while still no any independent party saw it and confirmed that this "big" miner is really exist? All we have is that someone saw an USB miner and some short video and a couple of photos...

soleo, how about any independent review?

The manufacturing company did promise to have a longer and detail review video for the final product to us. I'm still waiting for their news.

Worst case scenario would be that I would have to make it myself after they shipped it my place, just like other paid users, and I'll help to make the full detail video happen.

As we mentioned before, one of the machines will be shipped to a third party recommended by Dash Foundation. It's just the heatsinks replacement delayed the process. But it is still going to happen. We'll still be able to send it to the reviewer.

I'll be reviewing the miner and will post pictures stats and anything you want. I am getting the PI setup so this will work. So far the minera software has ads that pop up every hour unless you donate $4. Now they are locking up the console - so I may ditch minera. Some other users have reported better luck starting with the jessie image and adding minera on top of that.

Buy a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3, microusb power supply, case, heatsink kit recommeded, and 16GB Class 10 MicroSD card(8GB or 4GB also ok if you don't want to install a p2p pool node).

Download Minera
Bitcointalk Thread
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=596620.0
Direct Download Link
https://getminera.com/download/latest
Download win32 disk imager
https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Setup from windows....
Double click on .zip download and select extract all.
Open win32 Disk Imager and select the minera-latest.img file and write to device.
While you are copying the minera image, assemble the PI, heatsinks, and case.
Insert the MicroSD card in the slot at the back of the case.
Login to your router...usually 192.168.1.1. Look for DHCP leases.
Plug in your PI and find the new IP address that shows up it should have a description of minera. I set this as a static IP, so it won't change if you reboot your router in the future.
Open your web browser(firefox or Chrome work best) with the IP. (192.168.1.36 for example)
Login with user minera and password minera
In Settings / Custom Miners choose cgminer 4.X
In Pools add your pool and user info(see below for P2Pool info).
In System enter a new system password.
Save
System / Open Terminal - login minera pass minera(or the new one).
Type: sudo raspi-config and select "Expand Filesystem"
Close the window by clicking the X in the upper right.
System / Reboot and Yes Reboot

For a pool you can connect to a P2Pool node here:
https://dashtalk.org/threads/all-p2pool-nodes-list.4670/

Or create your own by starting here:
https://github.com/dashpay/p2pool-dash
sudo apt-get install python-zope.interface python-twisted python-twisted-web python-dev
sudo apt-get install gcc g++
Download Dash
wget https://www.dash.org/binaries/dash-0.12.0.56-RPi2.tar.gz -O - | tar -xz && cp dash-0.12.0/bin/dashd ~/ && cp dash-0.12.0/bin/dash-cli ~/
./dashd
sudo nano .dash/dash.conf (then put the next 5 lines in and edit for your user/pass/email)
Code:
rpcuser=<some_reallY_long_really_random_username>
rpcpassword=<some_really_long_really_random_password>
alertnotify=echo %s | mail -s "DASH Alert" <[email protected]>
server=1
daemon=1
Control x enter
git clone https://github.com/dashpay/p2pool-dash.git
cd p2pool-dash
git submodule init
git submodule update
cd x11-hash
sudo python setup.py install
cd dash-subsidy
sudo python setup.py install
./dashd
wait about 24hrs to download and sync
sudo python run_p2pool.py
Connect minera to 127.0.0.1 port 7903
For setup help
sudo python run_p2pool.py --help

Add startup scrypts so if you reboot the wallet and p2pool start up.
crontab -e
@reboot /home/minera/dashd
sudo crontab -e
@reboot sleep 1000 python /home/minera/run_p2pool.py

So... "ordered one" means that you received the invoice from coinpayment.net,and paied?
I replied the first email and no response,no "invoice from coinpayment.net".Or nobody receved the invoice and I misunderstood.:)

solarminer, are you saying you already received the miner? can you post noise levels too?

just fyi : Profitability will go down with at least 100 more (50 from pinidea and 50 from ibelink) x11 miners out in the miners hands .Right now it is at 0.47 btc per day per GH ,according to xpool.ca and nichash.com.
That means it will be 0.15 per day in just the next few weeks, so ,7+electricty/0.15 > 46 days
you might as well make money trading instead Here are few tips
Mojo,Trumpcoin,gamebetcoin,xvc are potential 10time gainers . might as well put your 7 btc there.

I am actually selling my ibelink miner for 4 btc if anyone is interested in buying it, inspite of alll the above warnings :)
PM'd sir
