It is a little noisy, but I am running it in the basement so it doesn t bother anyone. So after nearly 100 days of mining with the block erupters, I m sitting at <-$91.

Also I noticed that (at least when plugged into my laptop) the miner heats up even when I am not mining with it, LED lighting.

At the current BTC/USD exchange rate of $578. As a footnote I noticed that when operating the miner from a USB port on my laptop it heats up  much faster than when powering it via an USB hub. However, a CPU fan requires a separate 12V DC power supply.TRON.
