Hardware Acquired: Alphacool


I found myself slightly stuck when it come to this specific screen's specifications because of the fact that there is no English translation available on the site. Thankfully, with the wonder that is online translation I have been able to dig up the following details:

Technical data:
- Blue-white graphics
- Display is 240X128 pixel
- Inverted display (blue display with white writing)
- USB 1.1 & 2.0 Compatible
- Installation in 2x 5.25" slot
- Extra-Slim (1cm deep, including. Controller)
- Software is available for download
- Boundless notice possibilities
- Weight: 200g
- Face plate made out of brushed aluminum

Examples of use:
"Notice of system temperature, processor, CPU-saturation, network statistics, memory location, Winamp title, News-Feeds (z. B. BBC-world), Game Stats....."

Alphacool do however have an English page for the external / desktop model of the screen giving these details:

"SOFTWARE ALPHA LCD No Software CD is available for the moment. From today, the first public Beta version from ALPHA-LCD can be downloaded. The long expected Software is programmed especially for our displays, can be auto-installed and has a basically improved driver model. Just see for yourself! The downloadable Software enables it to display System information, like Temperature or Memory use, and also the possibility to show graphics. With the help of a simple Script file you can display external data (i.e) Winamp or Mainboard-Monitor (MBM5) results. The possibilities are unending! The Software is available in more languages and very handy for all users due to its intuitive Drag&Drop module. Examples for use: Displaying system temps, CPU, CPU-load, Networking Stats, Memory use, Winamp Titles, News-Feeds (i.e. BBC-World), Game Stats, Email details,... etc,etc. * The compatibility to LCD-Hype was highly improved by a new Script."
