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 silvery 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.
Decorative - that's the point!
Pros: Decorative - perfect for an HTPC, which is where I have it. The software, once you install it, makes it customizable. Easy installation and good clean fun.
Cons: You have to download the text editor program AND their USB drivers, or no workee at all. If you're using this in your HTPC, as I am, the text letters are to small to be read from across the room. I suppose your pet eagle could read them, but not a normal person.
Other Thoughts: Inexpensive fun for your HTPC.

Pros: Easy to install. Works with Win 7 32 bit. The one I got came with a blue display (which is what I really wanted!), not too bright.
Other Thoughts: I hesitated to buy this because of the green display shown in the ad and because the shipping was too high. When the shipping came down, I took a chance. Works great!!!

Pros: easy to install and can display many cool things like cpu info and hdd stats, also HTPC info.
Cons: Software is annoying and often unresponsive even on a very fast computer. the thing is also not completely mounted because it only uses the first mount set in your case so it isn't so sturdy.
