    Looking for a new display for your drivebay? The MX610 is a 20 character by 2 line PLED display - brighter and crisper than VFD. We take a look at its uses, and debate whether or not the heydey for LCD displays is now gone, in an age of cheap hi-resolution, colour TFTs - especially since the 610 lacks Media Center support.

    Quote: "Considering that HTPC enthusiasts would be a large part of the MX6's target market, it is positively criminal that it is not Media Center compatible. Again, if one had the determination and skill, one could use LCDC to produce your own custom screens to display various HTPC activities. If you were seriously hardcore, you might even code your own Media Center plug-in for LCDC. However, having forked out big bucks for this display, this functionality should be a mere installation wizard away - it should not be down the community to write their own software."
