PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The iMON Ultra Bay comes with SoundGraph's excellent remote control unit, but is fully compatible with an MCE remote and/or keyboard. This means, of course, that the bay device has its own IR receiver built in. This system also allows the user to power the computer on and off with the remote, a very desirable feature for an HTPC. The Ultra Bay features an LCD that will display the information listed above. The drivers are Windows certified and SoundGraph claims support not only for the latest Microsoft operating systems, but all the way back to the venerable 98 and the much maligned ME.
The Ultra Bay comes in either black or silver trim and takes up two adjacent 5.25-inch front bays. We'll go over the panel functions as well as remote control features a bit later.
The modest sized box has windows displaying the remote…
…and the bay device, as well as graphics illustrating many of the Ultra Bay's features. You can see that we've received a sample trimmed in black for review. Let's see what other goodies SoundGraph has hidden away in the retail box.
