It's a cheap knock-off, but it works – USB Universal E-mail/Webmail/IM Notifier (Gmail/Outlook/Outlook Express/POP3) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
- Much cheaper than the original (which is 10 bucks more)
- Good quality build
- RGB LEDs
- Can be used in your own software in just minutes
- It's a very cool way to get notified of new e-mail when your LCD is off
Cons:
- The original has 64 levels of brightness for each LED, this one has just on/off (8 combinations)
- I won't even try to install the software from the little "panda" CD that came with it... I rather wrote my own Add-in for Outlook 2007 in C# 2.0.
Other:
- I prefer the blue led
Bottomline:
It definitely draws attention around the office and not in a bad way.
