    Griffin Powermate Volume Knob


    *photo from Griffin's site

    The powermate came in. Turns out you can use it for multiple things. if you turn left & right it does one thing. you hold down and turn it can do another.

    i have mine set to
    Left = scroll up
    Right = scroll down
    Hold Down & Left = Decrease volume
    Hold Down & Right = Increase volume
    Click Down Tap = Mute

    I made a short clip using the powermate while showing the new Centrafuse XLE, i didnt go over navi.



    I really like it, i plan to get another one. put this in my car and the other for my desktop
    the reason I like the weight is, it doesnt feel cheap, it feels reliable.

    oh yeah this works on mac too.


    Pros:
    - Heavy(although i think it should be heavier)
    - Easy to use
    - Installs well
    - Aesthetically pleasing
    - doesn't feel cheap in hands

    Cons:
    - Blue Led is neat but to flashy for me
    - USB cable could be longer


    its worth the money.
    Nicely said, and I want another two, one for my desktop and for my wifes desktop.
    My new install

    D945GCLF2, M350 case,Xenarc 700 tsv,m-4 ATX
    Visteon HD radio w/mitches cable, BU-353
    2 Punch 150 amps, 1 Kicker ZX 400.1 watt
    4 Boston Acoustic Speakers,2 Pioneer 10 subs

    I see three version or model #s, 1040-PMT, 1100-PWRMTS, and 3260-PMBK.
    There also appears to be various packagings and a black anodized aluminum colored version.

    Are there any hardware differences?

    Been using one for quite a while, main function for me was to be able to do ALT+Tab and contol volume. ALT+Tab, no problem, it controls the volume nicely aswell, but I need to control Wave, not looked into it too much though. Mounted it as below:
