nMEDIAPC PRO-LCD Media Center Programmable LCD - OEM

Ever seen one of those computer cases with the LCD status reports and wished you were as well-informed? Or maybe you were just suffering from gadget-envy.

Well, nMediaPC makes this handy OEM-grade display that lets you be informed of your computer status just like those much more expensive computer cases. ("OEM? What does that mean to me?" It means you have to buy a little mounting rack and download the drivers from their website when you install it.) It fits handily into a five and a quarter inch drive bay and hooks up to a USB port. What will it display? More than I have room to talk about, but it can tell you about CPU usage, temperature, fan speeds, what music track your CD is playing . . . check out their website for more.

Whether it's something you need, or just a handy item you could use, decide for yourself if this is the one for you. We'll still be waiting when you're done.

1 out of 5 eggssmall blur of light - disapointed

Pros: installed as expected. mounted OK. software and drivers loaded OK. no problems with install.

Cons: A display you can not read is useless.
stand more than 6 feet away and all you see is a blue blur. software is very hard to figure out and not for beginners. Took a lot of time to set up. Hard to display info you would like to display.

Other Thoughts: Tried for a basic clock after playing with it for a week and I am still disappointed. can not read the clock unless you are standing right on top of it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly!

Pros: Easy to install. Looks really good. Displays nearly all the information I would have it display. Fairly easy to program. The print is easy to read from up to 8 feet away.

Cons: Wish I could change the color to red or white rather than being stuck with the blue. Also a few options I'd like to see in the programming software, like how long to hold at the end of scrolled text. Also changing temperature display in the programming software from C to F does not change what is displayed on the LCD bar.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a very good upgrade for the nMedia case. Well worth the money! Also, contrary to several other reviews, I had no difficulty installing the software on Windows 7 64-bit.

You will need to install a free program called "Speedfan" for the LCD bar to get information from your motherboard.

3 out of 5 eggsSome issues

Pros: It has a variety of preset settings with free software from manufacturers site.
Easy setup for tech knowledge medium and up.
Blue looks good.

Cons: I had some issues with my machine recognizing this. I had it working fine at first, then I had to reboot for an unrelated reason. When Windows started back up, it acted like it was never installed. I tried updating drivers, rebooting many many times. Unplugging, rebooting, turning off, plugging in again, etc etc. Nothing worked. I turned the machine off when I left for the weekend, when I came back and started it up, it was working again. Very odd issue.

Others said it was hard to read from across the room, they aren't lying. This is a con for an HTPC setup, which I assume most people are using it for, since it's made for an HTPC case.

Other Thoughts: There is currently not a way to get info from XBMC with Windows 7. This is NOT a shortcoming of the product, it's just an undeveloped idea in XBMC for Windows. This is just something you should be aware of. Since it doesn't tell me any XMBC info, I don't really have a use it. Unfortunately this is kind of the LCD that was 'made' for the case I got. I wish the folks at XBMC would come up with a solution. On the other hand, there has been varying levels of success with XBMC for Linux and this device if you Google it.

If you don't like the software provided, there's a much more in depth program called LCD Smartie, which I got to work with this device by using a few Google searches. It involved placing a driver by hand, and selecting it manually in the software and telling it which COM port your device is on. Nothing incredibly difficult, and I actually like LCD Smartie a little more.

If I were to do it again, I'd find a different brand with the same dimensions, or maybe just not buy one. Overall, it does what it claims (except the random issue mentioned before).

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: With a little case hacking I was able to get this to fit inside of the Thermaltake Level 10GT's 3.5" FDD bay.

Cons: Would be cool if you could mod the application a little further, the variables offered for displays are pretty limited.

2 out of 5 eggsGoes Out

Pros: Bright

Cons: Archaic programming software. It no longer works after a few months. Maybe this is isolated but dont expect miracles with it.

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: I like the blue color. Given that it's only 2 lines of text, it does display a lot of info. It makes the wife happy...does not look like a PC. I'll know more as I have more time to play with it.

Cons: If your computer challenged, you might have issues. It takes some effort to get the drivers and application installed.

3 out of 5 eggsTough to read, otherwise good

Pros: Customizable, makes the Home Theater PC look pretty darn impressive. Can provide all sorts of useful information, and if I recall correctly it can even tie in with Speed Fan to provide system stats. I have it set to cycle info including number of hours on.

Cons: Light blue text on a blue background makes it useless for viewing from across the room.

Other Thoughts: It is useful when standing near it. Otherwise, it looks very good.

3 out of 5 eggsworks

Pros: There is nothing wrong with this, it works as it should.

Cons: it's so small I can't read it from any distance away

Other Thoughts: even though it works I don't think I would buy this again. I just don't really need it.
