Pros: Plugged in, works out of the box with no need to install extra software. Used on Windows Media Center HTPC running Windows 7. Great buy if you catch it on sale!
Cons: It's a smaller remote with smaller buttons of course. If you have large hands it will take a moment to get used to, but not too bad at all. Still worth it in my book.
It also doesn't make grilled cheese sandwiches, but for the price I am not complaining! =)
Pros: Purchased two of these here on Newegg about two years ago.... up to this day they still work flawlessly and are in full use. No errors, quiet & reliable.
Sure they are not as fast as a Raptor or SSD, but for my needs they fit the bill and so far have a proven track record.
Cons: None, that I can think of... perhaps they do not fix me my cup of coffee in the morning?
Other Thoughts: I have moved these drives to backup drives, but after the new one failed within a week (different brand), I have placed them back in the spotlight as my main drives.
Stick with what works.... and these do. =)
This review is from: nMEDIAPC PRO-LCD Media Center Programmable LCD
Pros: Clear display, bright, informative, blue in color (not green anymore). Software allows to program the display with the information you want to see* (read Other Thoughts) and allows you to customize as well.
I found the installation of this display on the nMedia 5000B case to be relatively easy and is a perfect match. I can see it being slightly tricky if you have large hands, but even so if you take your time it's really simple and did not have to remove anything other than the bracket for the HDD drives (which comes out anyway for the build).
I have not tried it in any other cases so I can only use the 5000B as an installation reference.
The length of the wires were more than sufficient for an easy installation.
Cons: Does not come with a software CD and have to download it. I already knew that and was not a problem, thought I would mention it though.
Software not functional with Windows 7 64-bit. *
(Should work great with other Windows OS's)
Other Thoughts: Originally purchased with the notion of using this in a case meant for a Windows 7 64-bit HTPC build.
Software did not function properly after installation and emitted a problem with a DLL after reboot. Even after registering the DLL, it simply did not function properly. The display did work and provide information, but the software which allows you customize simply would not load.
Since I have two HTPC cases I decided to test this with Windows Home Server and it functioned 100% as it should. I was amazed at what I missed out on.
I have not tested it with Windows 7 32-bit, but during research have read from others that it worked on their machines.
This leads me to believe it COULD simply be a compatibility problem with a 64-bit OS.
For my build I will simply keep this on my WHS machine because it gives me quick information relative to processor load, network traffic, ect....
but for my Windows 7 64-bit HTPC build.. I will pass until there is a fix.
Overall, 4 eggs.
