Avalon ASIC Bitcoin Miner Batch 2 are now on sale

It seems strange to even sell these units at all right now. If they really can pay for their (retail!) value within a week, the real money is in running them, continuously, until the difficulty gets so high that they can only pay for themselves within, say, 6mo or more.It may be that the competition has driven manufacturers to attempt to sell so they can offload their stock. But Avalon claims that they are made-to-order. If it were me, I would've built 1000 of these, made them pay for themselves and then some, then started dumping as soon as it looked like a competitor was about to launch. And again, this sale is too early for that to make sense.
