I have been using a pool and have been getting reasonable rewards in btc/nmc.

My question is, does it make sense to try and do solo mining?

No unless you just want to do some incredibly boring gambling.  It doesn't make sense at 4GH/s (probably not at 14 GH/s).  With 400 MH/s there is a very good chance you will give up before ever finding a block.  With 400 MH/s on average you will find one block every 28 months however that is just an average a particular block taking 400% isn't that uncommon.

http://www.litecoinpool.org/calc?hashrate=400&difficulty=100.54392252

just be aware that "scrypt hashing speed is estimated to be 1000 times slower than SHA-256 speeds"
so 400 Mh/s for Bitcoin is ~400 Kh/s for litecoin...

http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/calculator is I think how you calculate that. 400mega hash is 0.91 bitcoins a month so I guess that means 25 months before you will get a block?
