Super Talent's Green Memory
 
Super Talent VLP DDR3 ModulesSuper Talent are showing off a new range of DDR3 Memory modules. Boring  you may think, what's new? Well, The RAM uses 38% less PCB material and 47% less packaging material than Super Talent’s standard DDR3 DIMMs. Super Talent developed very low profile (VLP) DDR3 unbuffered DIMMs for use in standard DDR3 based x86 motherboards. These DIMMs use 38% less FR4 material, which is the fiber glass epoxy substrate most PCBs are made of, and one-third less copper. These DIMMs have already been tested exhaustively with a variety of hardware and software to ensure they meet Super Talent's rigid quality standards, and are backed with Super Talent's lifetime warranty.
 
Super Talent also redesigned their package for these green DIMMs to use about half as much plastic in a clamshell that occupies 57% less volume. These reductions in material usage result in a packaged module that weighs 35% less than a standard DDR3 packaged DIMM, which translates to significant savings in shipping costs.
 
Super Talent Green Memory Packaging Comparison"Our goal with these green DDR3 DIMMs is to offer a greener memory choice for regular desktops that uses less raw materials, produces less industrial waste and consumes less fuel to transport with absolutely no tradeoffs in functionality or price”, explained Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James. “When multiplied by the hundreds of thousands of memory modules we produce monthly, this can have an enormous environmental impact.”
 
The first of these new green modules will come in both 1066 and 1333 MHz, in 1GB and 2GB DIMMs and will begin shipping in September.

Hi all, have purchased this unit a little while ago. Have put a ntfs formatted 1TB disc in it, recognizes it fine. Have put some files on it via the usb connection using a laptop. So far so good.

The files I have put on the disc is divx/xvid. I have put them in a folder structure like this:

\VIDEO\Foldername1\file1.avi
\VIDEO\Foldername1\file1.srt

and so on. Maybe 20 folders, not too much. 30 gigs maybe.

If I go via the file menu in the Icy Box, I can access the structure and select my avi file and play it. But it does not recognize/find the subtitle file. I am guessing this only works in Movie Mode, via the Movies menu?

And here is my first real problem: If I select Movies, Music or picture, the box just freezes - keeps searching on the harddisk or something, can hear it spinning/working. Doesnt matter if I leave it for hours, nothing happens. The only solution is to pull the power plug. Same thing in Music and picture mode (although I havent put any files of this kind on the disc yet).

Thats my biggest problem. Anyone had same issue?

Second issue: I have a 1080i/PAL tv connected to it via HDMI. If I select any high resolution in the setup, 720/1080 pix, then the avi files get all wrong scaled - aspect ratio goes out the window. Ok, the files are not that high res, but that shouldnt really matter? Only if I choose 480 pix resolution is the right aspect ratio retained.... grrrrr :-)

The manual, btw., is rather useless and only helps with the most basic things.

Any help ... pleeeease? It would be greatly appreciated :-)
