VL System L.I.S VFD Blue Platinum Front Panel Display Review

The VFD management software is very simple to navigate and configure. It allows you to use your VFD as a computer status monitor, statistic reporter, email retriever...and a bunch of other things that end in 'er'. It's virtually an all-in-one package, removing the need for any extra management software. The code the program uses to communicate with the VFD is somewhat monopolistic, as it is non open-source and is custom to the software itself. If you're a programmer, a little port sniffing should do the trick and you could code your own software for the device if you desire more options.


Through the software, you can configure the display settings for each section; whether it is the length your RAM usage shows for, or the specific hard drive storage statistics it reports to you - you are given a lot of customization control for the L.I.S. VFD.



The L.I.S. VFD software is bias towards the Winamp audio control software, and singles you into using it as your visualization control for the VFD.









You may find that your software settings remain unsaved each time you reboot your computer. To solve this bug, you must close the L.I.S. management software after each change.
