Confidence levels when ordering hardware from Bitmain website

Your website links to Bitmains website as a supplier of cryptocurrency mining hardware. I completely understand that you cannot be held responsible for any issues with suppliers/advertisers mentioned on your website, but I just wanted to ask you about the trustworthyness of the Bitmain website. Have you personally ordered anything from them? Did your item(s) arrive as expected?
I only ask because the mining rigs cost a significant amount of money ($1000+), and with the Bitmain website only accepting Btc/Ltc/Bank transfer, then as a consumer I would have no protection when compared to paying by credit card. I feel that the website ( is all legit, but it makes sense to be careful and do some research when making a large purchase by bank transfer.
I would appreciate any advice that you may have regarding ordering via this website.
Phil. :-)

Hi Phil,
As of now we did not have any bad experience with BitMain mining hardware producer. You can find our Antminer S9 review here.
If you really need buyer’s protection, you can buy a miner on eBay and pay with PayPal, then their buyer protection service should cover you in case you are not satisfied with the product.
