I wouldn't say it's all the way poor, at least for me, but I still prefer the old one.

I prefer the old one as all the features are available with 1 click (the list on the left)
The new CP means remembering where each feature is.

Also when reopening the Old CP it opens to where you left it last time, a big plus for me.

The new CP I suppose I'd get used to.
Good of NV to have the survey and hopefully they'll listen to the masses.

the new control panel isn't bad BUT i've got 1920x1200 on my desktop and the ****ing control panel has got a fixed size (the 3d settings) so i have to scroll like hell
and every "menupoint" should be a seperate TAB (e.g. firefox). the current design with 3 buttons with seperate subbuttons is crap. i bet a programmer was forced to design the new CP

they should talk to grestorn and integrate his nhancer

Im starting to get used to it.
Once you break out the menutree on the right side its pretty close the old panel.
I could go either way really.

But on the bad side I was totally lost with it in the begining, couldnt find anything since there isnt much of a menu tree by default.
Voted "old panel", but I dont have anything much against the new one.
Its nice how Ntune interfaces with it, shame it tends to crash or freeze the computer if I accidently access one of the mobo related stuff, since im not on a Nforce I spose.

It took me a while to get use to it but I now prefer the new CP. They just need to add some of the missing features and fix some of the bugs.

I prefer the old but like the new. My only complaint is that the new one is missing refresh rate options.

I love the new Control Panel image 1. Very neat and organized. That gets a 1 for me, 1 being the highest.

It seems as if you can't screw up the profiles as easily with the new panel. WIth the old one I would wonder whether or not they were being applied or my global settings... Although I do prefer the tree structure of the old CP and I think the the Massive Pictures representing the subsections on the new CP are unnecessary. This isn't a damn DENNY's menu!
