Hijacked E-mail account? After reading through the full review I noticed that the Reviewer mentioned that because he could not get the Notifier to work he downloaded the USB E-mail Notifier from several different sources. There's one website listed on the instructions (not several). Hence-->Virus
I bought this as a simple visual notifier when I receive e-mail through Yahoo and Gmail. It has worked just fine for me. I would recommend a better GUI and options. If the Notifier is bought through Amazon/Dream Cheeky and the instructions are followed it works.
That said, I'm a bit of a tinkerer and asked Dream Cheeky for the Developer Manual which they happily provided. I was able to make a simple utility that would set the color and intensity to anything I wanted. From there I made a little script to poll my IM client to notify me of unread messages. (This was on Mac OS-X, btw.)
I won't give it 5 stars because the software for it is fairly narrow in flexibility and utility. BTW- Don't use the software that comes with it, download the most recent from their web site. And, the device doesn't light up particularly brightly.
I happily give it 4 stars because it is hackable and is just $10. A hardware hacker could potentially take the device apart and use the device to control other things besides three LEDs. (The three channels have a resolution of 0x00 -> 0x1F)
Can't speak for performance in windows though, I assume from the other reviews it isn't the best software wise, but the hardware seems good.
The video is of the lamp going through 680 color codes just pasted in to the command line. Pretty fast.
The indicators themselves are a little smaller in size than a business-card, but they are quite deep (this is to allow the light from the single ultra-bright multicolored LED inside them to diffuse and light up the whole thing.
I have not tested the web-mail software that came with them, so all i can tell you there is the CDROM
is red & white.
I'm using these with trap receiver [...] to take SNMP traps from out network management system and convert them into flashing notifications using the command-line drivers from here [...]
I tested with a gmail account. It works flawlessly. I am going to use this device for an even more greater purpose. I was looking for some notification mechanism to notify incoming orders, for my web application. Sounds like this will perfectly fit this application. You can even configure it in such a way that the red blinking blinking light will be on until, you manually dismiss the alert dialog on the computer. I think, this is a great advantage over even sending text alert or a push notification to a mobile phone.
Even if you didn't want to use the built-in LED, you could probably solder in some external lighting and simply use the USB controller as a bridge.
"I Paid Regular Price For This Product"
I didn't realize that it changes color instead of just lighting up. It displays as green when there are no messages, blue/purple when a new message arrives, and then will chane color more intensely if more messages arrive that haven't been handled. What more do you want for $10?
