There isn't a whole lot to the NITRO. Really, the device does exactly what it's supposed to do, so you can't really fault it in that regard. We have to wonder, though, who is really going to want the device? Anyone who really wants to overclock is probably already using something like Rivatuner.
While the device is apparently only for ZOTAC based NVIDIA cards, we had no problems with the device running on our GIGABYTE GTX 280 and we were able to change all clock speeds without any issues. With that said, if you do run into a problem where the FireStorm software spits out an error, if you hold the shift key while pressing the OK button the device will work as it should.
Ultimately, the NITRO is one of those devices which doesn't have anything wrong with it. However, there's just nothing that really stands out. Overclocking these days isn't really a hard task and we're not sure who really wants to have their clocks on display at all times.
It will be interesting to see what ZOTAC do with the device over the coming months. Hopefully we will see it bundled with some of their cards or a newer version come out that offers more features.
