Last time I checked, one USB block erupter was around 1 BTC.  As of 9/24/13, the price is now 0.3 BTC!!!

Sorry for posting in newbies section, but I can't post anywhere else...

I never thought I'd live to see them drop below 0.75 BTC

Yeah, they still are. I hope to see them drop to .10 or below. If they do, I'll probably buy some more. I wonder what the actual manufacture cost is.

Still, is it even worth it?

if you're looking for a return on your investment, i think a $5 price point would be marginal (decreasing daily)...  i guess some of it depends on your electricity costs (how much does it use anyway?  around 3-5 watts?)...   if you just bought one,  a lot would depend on your computer habits too, i suppose (i.e. do you leave it running overnight etc)

anyway, if I saw one for a few bucks, I'd probably grab it...  maybe as a potential collectible, wtf... replace my star wars collection


Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Better to purchase the Butterfly Labs 5 GH/s box.  Lowers the break even point.

On the topic, if I found one cheap, I have no idea how to mine, or set this up at all.  It looks greek to me.

Can I run it on an old computer, that is just sitting there?  And would someone walk me through it (in english, not all these crazy tech wording?)

I see people using these hubs and stuff, for multiple ones.  How hard is it if I bought like 9 of them, and hooked them up to run 24/7?  Will it work on an old computer?  And how much startup costs?  I have the computer, thats all.

You'll need a fan if you have that many.  And you have to get a hub with enough power for them, like an Anker hub.  You should just start with one and see if you like it.

I may PM you in the next few days, to discuss this more, and maybe buy one or two.

Main problem is power to the USB hub.  Seems like expensive hubs just have higher amp power supplies when compared to the cheap stuff. 

Setup is very simple: install the drivers, plug in USB hub, plug in erupters, d/l cgminer or bfgminer, make shortcut, edit shotcut to include proper parameters, run.

The whole issue is whether it's worth it to you, when ROI (at chrrent difficulty and costs) is about 3 months.  Realistically, I'd be surprised if my ROI is 6months.  This is mostly a fun project for me, since electricity costs for me are $0 (running solar that's making a surplus).

Oh, and it would make a neat warm plate as well.

IMO, block erupters are overpriced even at 0.175 BTC (http://www.asicminer-shop.de/)

Drop to 0.1 and we're talking again.

Friedcat is selling them for as low as 0.1 BTC.
