The release of SP20 took place in the late of 2014. ATX PSU is needed to run the SP20 without any problems. PSUs to be another option for the powerful PSU. It’s highly unlikely that the SP20 will ever pay for itself, never mind make a profit unless you have free electricity.
Far less than a single BTC will be mined in a year, therefore concluding the SP20 a waste of electricity. Casing With its solid, rectangular metal housing, the SP20 is easy to keep or store. Noise Compared to either the SP10 or SP30 models, the SP20’s 120mm fan is quieter. The SP20 is quiet enough to run in a home, despite the fact that it gets noisier the faster and hotter it runs. Setup Spondoolies’ user interface provides all the configuration settings and monitoring information you’re most likely need. The SP20 is simple enough to setup.

The first time we heard about Spondoolies-Tech was at the 2014 Amsterdam conference. I had a chance to talk to the company leaders and ask about their product. You can find the interview that was made with them below. The mining hardware provider sector is getting bigger and bigger. People are not risking to pre order as their trust have been vanished because of scam companies, failed deliveries or used products. It is great to see a company who entered the market with a ready product. Spondoolies-Tech did not take money in advance for their SP 10 to tape out their chip.
They first made the product and delivered literally with next day air once full payment was made. We got our hands on their miner and managed to make a review. Before we would go into the tech part let me write a few words about the the most important man who runs this company. Shipping and packaging As I wrote in the lead at the beginning of the article the shipping was a great surprise in terms of the delivery times. The company provides a tracking number and uses DHL so we had a great experience with that. Long terms stats We have let the miner run for over a month to be able to provide you long term mining stats as well.
It was great to see that the performance did not go too much below the promised 1. You can see the graphs below. As you can see, the device is incredible stable according to the other tested miners statistics. It has been placed in normal room, not data centre and average temperature is 24. Cooler during night time and warmer in sunny summer days.
