Logisys Remote Multifunction Panel Review - Page 2 of 2

OPERATION

The first thing I tried after getting all of the wires connected and putting the case back together was the remote. I crossed my fingers and pressed the red button. The machine turned on! At least that told me that I had connected some of the cables and wires correctly. The temperature needles also moved, and one was higher than the other, telling me that they too were working properly. The nice blue glow in the background of the temperature needles adds a nice ambience to the Panel.

Before Installation

Next, I tested the slide for the case fan. Listening to the fan, I could tell by moving the slide up and down that the fan was speeding up and slowing down. I plugged in my USB key to the USB ports. Both of those were also working properly. Attaching my iPod to the FireWire port, I was able to view my iPod as an external drive. Everything on the Panel was working correctly.

Installed and Functioning

The remote was able to control the power and reset of the PC, but from a limited range. I discovered that I had to be on the same floor of my house for the remote to work. When I tried from the main floor, or from the basement, it just wouldn't do anything. The remote would operate correctly from any place on the second floor of my house though.

CONCLUSION

The Logisys Remote Multifunctional Panel works as advertised. The remote works from a limited range. The USB and FireWire ports work well. The Temperature gauges work very well, and look cool. The slide for the case fan also works. This device adds a bit of bling to the system, with blue LEDs for the temperature gauges, and the ability to power and reset your PC by remote.

At a retail price of $39.99, this is an affordable way to add function and fun to your PC. This device hits a home run. Thanks to CrazyPC for providing the review sample.

Feel free to discuss this review in this forum thread.
