    Maybe they're gearing up for the 220W....and have run out of the 150W.

      That would be cool. Hope the 220w version will not fully comply with the ATX spec so it would turn off the 5v when the car is off.

          It will comply with ATX, but you will have a jumper that will turn standby off. Plus it'll have remote trigger output like the some 90W ones have.
          I'll spout simplistic opinions for hours on end.
          Ridicule anyone who disagrees with me,
          and generally foster divisiveness,
          cynicism and lower level of public dialog!

            Sweet! And the EPIA SP comes out about the same time Now if I would just have money and time to get a LCD display (I'm leaning towards a used Xenarc because I will have to remove it from its case to make it look stock (I don't feel like resoldering the connections on a Lilli), and I don't want it failing).

              so the 5v on the 150w is always on? is there a jumper on the 150w version to turn that off? Cause I don't realy like to have it like being always on...I guess putting a switch between the cable to the battery will fix that to...

                The standby power is always on per the ATX spec in the 150 watt OPUS. Searching around here find some work arounds if you don't like that.

                    because the ATX specs were designed for a PC not a car PC?

                      But the Opus was designed for a vehicle and if they can put a jumper on the 90w, why not on all?

                        Possibly because the 150W came out before the 90W... and it was too late to make a change...
