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 display that lets you be informed of your computer status just like those much more expensive computer cases. Comes with an attractive black mounting rack, and the drivers are downloadable from their website. 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 eggs

Pros: Works

Cons: I thought all this device would need is a driver, but it also requires a control program to be running. Then, if you want it to display fan speeds or temperatures you have to download a third party program called Speed Fan. I downloaded Speedfan from the recommended link in the manual. During installation my malware program warned of potentially unwanted programs included. During installation of Speedfan I had to CAREFULLY read and uncheck several options to install other programs such as 'Secure Search' and other unwanted programs. Apparently something managed to slip through because after reboot my browser would not load any web pages. Something changed my browser options to requiring a proxy server. I fixed that and scanned my computer with my malware program which found 15 potentially unwanted programs. Also, did a virus scan and now everything seems OK. Speedfan has to be running for the device to monitor fan speeds and temperatures.

I finished setting up the device. The manual says the driver is newly compatible with Windows 8. Apparently the control program is not quite compatible since the display could not identify my operating system (Windows 8.1) as it was supposed to.

Took the device back out of my machine and got an RMA to send it back.

I believe this device is more trouble than it is worth.

Other Thoughts: The manual directed me to download Speedfan from a site which installed unwanted malware on my computer. This was not appreciated and I will make sure that I never purchase any product made by that company again.

Pros: Installs easy after you download the software fro the manufacturers website. reports lots of info without you having to do any customization.

Cons: Most of the info it reports is useless, does not work with SpeedFan as promised, will not report motherboard volts or temps, software is terrible, tech support in non-existent, after many calls to tech support and leaving messages with no return calls I finally got someone who told me to read the manual....Yay!..

4 out of 5 eggsOutdated, but super neat

Pros: Straight forward installation.
Does exactly what it says. No more. No less

Cons: No support for VLC (the only media player I use)
I think if there were an SSD bracket in the back of the unit it would sell more. As of now she is a mess

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low cost compared to other LCD units (that have better build & features). Due to DOA/non-functioning unit, I cannot recommend this device.

Cons: DOA. The power wires were very small/narrow/flimsy and were not properly mounted into the connectors of the 4-pin molex power adapter, resulting in "no-power" to the unit. Power wires were not sleeved.

4 out of 5 eggsGets The Job Done!

Pros: Cheapest LCD display I could find. Good enough viewing angles and refresh rate. Looks professional enough. Uses internal USB header.

Cons: Documentation is horrible and reference software is horrible. Tricky installation, you must know what USB pins provide power and ground (they are not the same between motherboard manufacturers). Most third party software is also horrible and was written many years ago.

Other Thoughts: I wrote my own LCD controller in Java and draw strings directly to the screen. It was a relatively simple process and will be ordering more for my custom projects / software.

1 out of 5 eggsRan great for a few months! Then downhill from there

Pros: The display was very nice and easily readable. Thats about all i can say.

Cons: You will lose a USB port for this product. Display stopped working after a few months. Def not worth spending your money on.

Other Thoughts: Asus Maximus V Formula
i5 2500k
Corsair Vengeance 4X4 1600mhz
Coolermaster 700w silent pro
Win 7

5 out of 5 eggsquestion

Pros: This is a question to owners only: I only want this to display a clock and maybe the date, so does it have that ability? I will install this in a media PC and would also like to know if the display is readable from 15-16ft. away.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little LCD

Pros: Simple device that plugs into a USB header and molex plug, displays what you want it to via the software on nmediapc's website or other software designed for it, like LCD smartie. Looks great, bright but not hard to read, sits flush and overall is a fine product that does what you need it to.

Cons: 4-pin USB header connector. Why not just use the good old fashioned 9-pin and save folks confusion? Not a make or break deal though.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks cool for about a year

Pros: It gives a nice flavor to your built,nice custom fields

Cons: Hassle to get drivers from the internet,software takes a few moments to load, display is so dim after a year I can barely see what it say

Other Thoughts: It looked cool in the beginning,now a year later I can't see a thing on the display from 2 feet away
