Fun little gadget, have to write your own software tho – USB Universal E-mail/Webmail/IM Notifier (Gmail/Outlook/Outlook Express/POP3) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Fun little USB controlled LED that can light up in 7 different colors. Good to have immediate visual notification of something on your computer. Nice soft glow inside the translucent shell. No driver needed, lots of software available in the forum.
Cons:
Only 3 of the 7 colors actually look good (blue, green, white). Other colors kind of ugly. Software provided doesn't work at all (Win 7 x64), have to use software in the forum. I also compiled a control software in the forum.
Other:
OK design, not sure if I like the envelope on the front though. You might get distracted if it lights up on every email.
Bottomline:
Nice hardware, with lots of 3rd party software available.
