I have really wanted to use one of Matrix Orbital's new USB LCD's in a project for quite some time now, and the opportunity recently presented itself when I reviewed the Eclipse keyboard from Saitek—you can read that review here. My only real beef with this awesome keyboard is the fact that Saitek got it so right that I couldn't think of anything I would mod on it—and as you know, stock is not an option around here. Having painted their gaming version of this keyboard, I had had a good look at the inner workings, and changing the LED's from the sexy blue to a red or green was not really something I wanted to do.
If there wasn't anything that needed changing, then I would just have to add something. A quick trip to CrazyPC turned up the very nice USB LCD's from Matrix Orbital. Now we had a plan, and as you can see, it turned out rather nice. Read on for a review of the LK202-24-USB, a quick look at some very handy software called LCDC used to run your LCD, and a short how-to for those who might want to make their own Orbital Eclipse mod.
