Lately there has been a colossal demand for LCD displays- whether it is for notebooks, flat screen TV's or the PC monitor, the sources are starting to become a little too scarce. Fortunately, one type of LCD we definitely don't have to fret over is the 'status LCD'; the tiny monitors you see as replacements for some enthusiasts' computer's 5.25" bay devices.
These LCD's sometimes serve as an information station, allowing the user to quickly take a glance as his or her computer and immediately be told the machine's remaining hard drive space, current memory usage etc. - it's even possible to have these displays inform you of new mail in your inbox.
Currently, there are two popular technologies behind today's bay status-monitors: the LCD and the VFD. The latter is not a recent innovation to the industry, but it is most definitely a more technically advanced one; offering unprecedented clarity and brightness. It has a stated 20% brightness gain over the LCD.
There are numerous LCD's and VFD's currently available on the market for the average consumer to purchase, but there are only a few that are truly worth the commonly hefty price tag you'll be paying. One of those select few is the L.I.S. VFD, designed and produced by VL System. For this review, we're specifically dealing with the L.I.S. VFD Blue Platinum front panel display.
We have chosen this product for several reasons: the VL System bundled software includes a plethora of useful functions and packs a handful of features which are not commonly found in third party software found online, the VFD also promises to be bright and crisp - offering us a whopping 180 degree viewing range.
Let's install one of these babies and see what it can do for us!
