I'm new to the world of GPU mining but did my fair share of research prior to making this purchase. I liked the idea of purchasing a kit rather than sourcing all of the parts myself as it can be difficult these days to find what you're looking for due to shortages and price gouging.
The kit was packaged very well, and comes assembled out of the box. No need to spend time putting together the mining rack or installing the CPU onto the MoBo, it's all done for you. I purchased the GPUs separately and followed the instruction manual that was provided with the kit to install them. The manual isn't great; it could use an update (some gaps in the installation process left me guessing what to do next). With that said, what's left of the assembly is pretty intuitive and I had the rig powered up in no time. I'm sure someone with more experience than me would have no problem doing this without the manual at all.
One area where I struggled was getting the touchscreen to display anything. You need to plug in the HDMI cable connected to the touchscreen to the "main GPU" (according to the instruction manual), and I couldn't figure this out from the manual and some trial and error). Thankfully I called the technical support phone number on the website and someone walked me through the process and got it up and running in a matter of minutes.
One of the best parts of the kit is the SharkOS software that comes with it. Once I powered on the rig, configuring the miner and the related software was EXTREMELY intuitive. Being a novice, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to figure this out, but between the manual and some more trial and error I had the rig mining in less than an hour from when I began to install the GPUs.
All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone who would like to get into mining. If they gave a little more love to the instruction manual, this would be a 5 star review without a doubt.

I got my Shark extreme very quickly. It comes very well packaged, and the initial setup is very easy. My software did not work thou out of the box and since it arrived on Friday evening I had to wait till Sunday to get it reconfigured.
Ruben there is extremely knowledgeable - he got it working in about 30 minutes. Its hard not to like how compact and efficient it is.
My fellow miner put together his own rig and the cost was the same. If you are a first time miner download your wallets of what you want to mine first. Then ask the software to be tailored to that. (I didn't realize how difficult or impossible they are - example Monero). So far I really like the rig and will order another once the market improves.
Shark PRO (6 GPU)

Had it up and running for a week now, everything works and look great. The customer service has been very helpful as well!
As advertised, the rig comes with built-in scripts to start mining right away. These scripts also allow for easy tweaking (overclocking, rig name, etc.). The rig looks real sexy to be honest.

I was looking for the biggest rig I can set up in my home, so I decided to choose a Shark Extreme 8 GPU. Order number 7712xxxxxx.
An 8 GPU rig turn a very good profit since Bitcoin Gold price is rising.
8 GPUs are a little bit noisy, so you shouldn't place the rig in your bedroom. You can always adjust power to control the noise level from the touchscreen, that's pretty handy.

Ordered a Shark Pro at Dec 13 The rig arrived in two boxes, one for the rig itself, the second for the graphics card. Setup is pretty easy thanks to included manual. Their operating systems, SharkOS, just works, no issues with reboots or updates that I had on a Windows mining rig I bought before on ebay. Will order a couple of rigs next month!!!! 100% recommended!

Have ordered a Shark Mini mining rig recently. Build quality is good. Had some questions about creating my Zcash wallet, the Shark Mining support stuff quickly helped over the phone. The rig is surprisingly quiet, I have not noticed any significant noise. It is mining for some time now, and I can already see Zcash trasnactions to my wallet. Thanks guys!
