Comino N1 Miner Conclusion
The device looks fantastic from the outside if we compare it with other mining solutions in the market. At the same time, it is very silent and can be used at home without further problems. But it is recommended not to put it in the room where you sleep.
A point to mark is that it is very heavy, because it uses aluminium and water cooling. Additionally, the miner has been built with high quality materials and parts and everything is in place when you open it.
Comino uses only good-plated sockets, cables, controller board operating cooling system, and chassis. The Nocturna iPPS fans and HWlabs radiator are the best found on the market.
This is an excellent home mining device – but if you are a business, Comino also has a specific solution designed for bigger users that need more power and a bigger installation. Additionally, the mining configuration is perfect for those who want to easily start mining at home or at the office.
