I have recently given my thoughts in a recent post, about six lines down.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=323221.msg3462266#msg3462266

I realise the numbers are not exactly like yours, but believe me your numbers would work out similar, if not worse.

Take the advise from a number of members and sell ASAP.

No matter how cheap block erupter is, just don't buy it unless its close to free. Because block erupter isn't efficient at all. 7.5 Watt per GH/s just suck so bad...

I never really understood why anyone would have bought Block Erupters to begin with. They have always been way overpriced and setting them up and mining with them is such a hastle.

I bought one so in the future I can show it to my grandkids and be like "yeah, I had a machine that printed money"

If it's brand new, then sell it. If you have already used then just use it for mining while waiting selling it Smiley

mining with them is such a hastle.

How is it?  Plug in to USB hub, run bfgminer.  That's it.

Unless you've got the IT skills of a wet sandwich, it couldn't be any easier...

Just sold 10 of my Block Erupters. Got £99 for the 10 of them.  Not so bad, I guess, they mined a lot in their 6 months, mostly alt coins.  I have one remaining.  Cry

Mine are still mining.

I figure, why go through the hassle of trying to sell them, and when BTC hits $500, they will actually be profitable.

Just keep mining, be happy.

Just buying bitcoins isn't fun though Wink  Mine at a fee-free pool and cut out the middleman anyway!  Heck there's still people CPU mining just because they can.

More miners = stronger network = better long term valuation of existing bitcoins.
