Works But Not So Fast
on March 4, 2014
I got this working using some of the programs mentioned in other reviews. Most programs, however, were not so user friendly and required that I type commands at the CMD, which was more cumbersome than I would like. Eventually, I got it to work with Bitminter so I am sticking with that because the bitcoins it produces appear clearly in my account there. I can appreciate the cause/effect relationship here.
Why three stars?
Well, regardless of what software I install and use to run it, the fastest I am seeing it mine coins is at 224 Mhps and not the 1.6 Ghps, which is advertised. Although 224 Mhps still significantly faster than what I am used to before buying this miner, it is not 1.6 Ghps.
So I will continue to research this to figure out how to get this up to the promised speeds. Once I do, I will change my rating to 4 or 5 stars. Thank you.
I think I got a defective one because I tried new bitminter from another vendor and it runs at 1.6 Ghps and mints bitcoins 5 times faster than this one that I purchased and which still runs at 0.244 Ghps. I hope that I can return it for a replacement. If I cannot, then I will have more to say.
