    Free alternative - there is an Android App or two that can some of this (though I've yet to find one that can do my GPUs) try CoreTemp or PC Monitor

    I'm sure the built in screen on some of these Logitech keyboards can do the same thing. I'm just not sure if there are suitable apps available. Nevertheless it's an interesting product although niche.

    I think there are windows 7 (software) gadgets that do these things.

    This is cool. I would rather just use software though.

    A logitech G19 keyboard and Aida64 (monitoring software)is brilliant for this.

    They use to have this for routers and the panel tends to freeze-up.

    This would be cool if it was made to fit into a case expansion bay.

  9. I think I'll wait for the next iteration ... The one where you simply plug in the USB cable and it works immediately. :)

    The point is you can optimize the display the way you want. Plug-n-Play would take away that aspect.

    It wouldn't be bad to have an initial setup that had a basic layout for the LCD, while accessing APIs already available for those that want it quick 'n dirty, while still being able to completely customize the layout and data acquisition.
     
  12. It does have some pre-created elements, when you launch it the first time it loads a basic setup like what you see in the picture and you just have to pick what sensors to show and thats it.

    That is exactly what happens, although not all the elements immediately work, and you probably won't like the default layout

    Would gladly buy one! If not, I'm working on something similar, but the hardware end tends to be a problem.
