A real good look (in the flesh) at the front panel first.

I have to say it doesn't look cheap, and looks good for plastic. However, if you have an alu case it just wont look as good.

been reading though this a couple of time now.

Ive come to the conclusion a £70 7" lcd touch screen is still a better option.

when you consider the fact that the lcd screen isnt compatible with any other software and to be honest is quite a old technology and why do you need it to tell you you have an email when there is plenty of free software that will do that any way.

All so consider what it is, its not really that good. You could chop that down to 1 bay and lose the knobs off it as really who in the modern day world is going to walk over to it and start pressing buttons and fiddling with knobs when they have a remote. If they removed that section and just left the LCD and IR receiver and dropped the price By £20 it would make it worth while.

Looks to big and clumsy in its present form.

There is one you can get without the dials and buttons, which is also cheaper, however, I'm not sure how much cheaper.

I agree that perhaps people aren't going to walk over to their Case, but for £70 the Veris is still a cheaper alternative to replacing your current case with a HTPC case.

It's worth remembering it comes with a remote as well, which is where a normal 7" LCD can't compete.

to be honist i may disagree as i just check lillput's prices on a 7" tft touch screen and you can now get one for £60 then throw in a Windows remote £10 to £15 and you are sorted for £75.

again a much better option. the only downfall is that you will need to mod it. But that's the difference this is a pre bought option. I keep forgetting that.
