    This doesnt work well on my friends. Very high price and not recommended to others specially if you are just starting in bitcoin

    Butterfly Joddy is auxillary for mining bitcoins but it has an expensive buying policy which everyone can not efford

    It's too much expensive so that it does not compensate, I mean it's not worth it. But it delivers and the website is online, the only problem is the price really.

    Not so good. Its very expensive, its not worth it. Not recommended for practical buyers. Mining should not be expensive as this one or maybe you will need a very high specs in order to mine well using this.

    Butterfly labs equipment is extremely expensive for the price per GH. You would barley make a profit from mining bitcoins. Go somewhere else.

    expensive yet not profitable to mine bitcoins due to high dificulty so please lower the price per GH

    They were one of the first (first that I saw) ASIC manufacturers, I ordered 4 x 5GH/s jalapeno devices in Aug 2012, later upgrading to 1 x LITTLE SINGLE 30GH/s unit.
    MONTHS AND MONTHS OF LIES ENSUED from BFL, stating a plethora of problems encountered by them... their fab and every possible excuse under the sun... probably ALL excuses were used EXCEPT the sun...
    Anyway, I gave up and figured I was scammed!
    August 18th 2013 (yep, that's OVER A FULL F***ING YEAR!!!) I noticed they were shipping to my purchase date, but no email telling me mine has been sent, or even that it is getting close...
    EVENTUALLY after some emailing I get a confirmation email saying my items has shipped. NOT BEFORE CHARGING ME AN EXTRA US$100 for EXPRESS shipping?! If the device was ready a YEAR AGO I wouldn't NEED express shipping.

    Device ACTUALLY arrived and I started to hash... I emailed them about a slowness and I actually got a reply fairly quickly, turns out it was their stupid EASY MINER software that was to blame anyway.

    So BFL announce the MONARCH... really?? 300/600GH/s and 1000s of BFL customers are STILL WAITING FOR THEIR 5, 25/30, 50/60GH/s devices...

    Then it's CLOUD mining...

    What have they actually done that was GOOD (or seemingly) for the customers??

    1*. They gave us CHIP credits...<????!> a useless notion that gave us the ILLUSION that we have some credits that we can use down the road a bit (should we ever trust BFL again)
    * = Minimum 100 CHIPS PURCHASED PER ORDER (I had a total of 16 chip credits)
    + WTF can you do with ASIC chips that are not built into a system? NOTHING that's what!!!

    2*. 25% DISCOUNT VOUCHER - This actually sounded like a good thing!

    Thus I started emailing them, why can I not use my credits?
    It was about this time my 25% DISCOUNT VOUCHER vanished from my account...

    So I email AGAIN, Where's my voucher? Why can't I use chip credits? AFTER ALL, these were both things GIVEN to ME by BFL for THEM SCREWING ME AROUND!

    I think it was a month or so later, by this point I had given up on BFL anyway... I got an email from BFL_Josh, one liner saying "You don't need voucher anymore as prices have been dropped!"

    WTF!!?? So to SAY THANKS to your early customer, you DANGLE A CARROT in front of them and then throw me into the same priority queue AS EVERYONE ELSE!

    I have personally purchased a miner from Butterflylabs. I got the Miner and it worked just fine as promised. It was at a certain cost however, meaning, it was easily a year or more late in delivery. This was after a dozen or so, changes in the promised delivery date.

    Also, to this day Butterfly Labs charges an arm and a leg for the Miners they Produce. The calculations on Profitability with these machines is Less Than Zero, even at Bitcoin value of $1,000.

    If you really look into the message boards, you will quickly notice its just a place for people to complain and comment on the many bad stories about Butterfly Labs.
