    I'll try to measure mine and maye take a pic tomorrow.

    Cool thing is it can run off of 12V power. No need to use the power brick that comes with it.

    I have been using it for about two weeks. It is kind of, well, crappy. I would be hard pressed to say it is worth $150. There is about a 95% chance that it is going back before 30 days are up.

    If you don't get dimensions tomorrow, email me. I would guess it is about 8.5 inches wide, 5 inches deep, and about 2 inches tall.

    The sound quality is 10x better than the built in sound on the ARM G1 Mini PC I'm using. The only problem is that audio/video on some DIVX and MPEG2 clips get out of synch sometimes. I think this places a much higher load on the CPU. BTW, mine is a Celeron-1Ghz, do you think a PIII-1Ghz would make much of a difference?

    I've had that problem on a couple of my machines. One with a SB Audigy, and one with some cheap no-name sound card. One machine is an AMD 1.4, the other a Celery 300. That being the case, I don't think it's the sound card or processor speed that's causing the incontinuity between sound and video. Probably just bad encoding... (sorry for going off-topic)

    But I didn't have that problem with the built in sound card.

    Was it the same movie? I get that problem every once in a while with certain movies. It is the encoding or the wrong codec, not your hardware.

    I also get occasional crackling or popping which, it is my understanding, is common in Creative Labs products. Bleh.

    Yea, if the DIVX is properly encoded, then the audio sync issues should not happen. While it is always nicer to have more CPU, i dont think it would make much of a difference. Also, ive been rather happy with creative's products... what so bad about them?
