Summary: I installed this unit in a custom computer I recently built and it failed miserably. As mentioned by others, the instellation is a bit of a pain, but not really technically challenging. The instructions are vague, but if you can't figure them out, you probably shouldn't be opening the case on your computer. The problems were twofold, first, every time I plugged in the USB connecter Windows 7 would not start. The computer just locked-up on the boot screen.
Summary: I am very tech savvy, and built my own pc. I installed this into my pc with no problems. The included driver was very outdated and the imon manager is complete crap, I tried to contact the imon software tech support. Unless you speak Korean don't waist your time. The LCD Display did not display anything. I could not get to work but it might have just been me.
Summary: SilverStone Aluminum Front Panel 5.25-Inch Multi-media System with LCD Display MFP51B (Black) SilverStone Aluminum Front Panel 5.25-Inch Multi-media System with LCD Display MFP51S (Silver) I normally don't write reviews but in this case I would like to prevent other people from having to deal with the headache and frustration purchasing this will certainly cause you. Let's start from the beginning.
Summary: This really completes the PC media experience with super ease. Also the software is updated regularly. The display is nice. I ordered the filter kit to make it a little darker but that is to my taste. Shows everything you need, provides good complete software to use it and a remote! Glad I have it on my machine and from now on every one of the computers I build will include it.
Summary: I built this computer to pretty much be an HTPC. I work online so listen to music and watch tv shows/movies while working. I thought this would be a great display. I have an extra 5.25 bay drive so don't regret the purchase. Pros: 1. Nicely lit up 2. Can display things like news, etc Cons: 1. Overly complicated installation. It comes with a remote to turn on and off computer. Maybe this is useful for others but not for me.
