Zalman ZM-MCF2 Multi Fan Controller
After the initial “OMG that's so cool!” reaction, the novelty wears off pretty quickly after we had used it for a while – it looks fantastic but any long term usability is destroyed by the fact we simply couldn’t read it! It got extremely frustrating to continually have to contort myself every time I wanted to read it, as I had to have my eyes directly in front of it to make any sense of what was on screen.
For £35 I was all set to recommend it to everyone after seeing it at i31, but this fundamental problem makes it almost useless – I ended up resenting to have to lean over and stretch my neck out yet again just to read it. So does not wanting to actually use it make money well spent? It can just sit there looking cool, which is fine if all you do is show off your PC to others, but not if you want to use it yourself.
It really, really kills me that Zalman just needs to sort this one major issue to make it a product absolutely worth purchasing, but until then it’s not worth the cardboard it comes in.
