I bought this unit thinking it was a little more versatile than it actually is. The hardware is light years ahead of it's competition. The area I believe it to be lacking is the software implementation. Particularly where the SCAB module is concerned. The ability to read external probe/fan temperatures/speeds is an excellent feature, but without a robust selection of "todo" options tie into these monitors they are pretty much useless. What would be a nice addition to add here would be the ability to trigger events off the fan speeds and temperature probe readings for example if a certain speed or temperature is reached, send email, run program, execute script etc. and allow the inclusion of multiple event and prioritizing of such events. PC's aren't just being used for games or spread sheets anymore. They are used for HTPC's and even for complete home automation ie. HVAC. I am using mine to monitor external temperatures in critical electronic equipment that can be powered on and off by the PC. It would be nice to be able to use this hardware and software to monitor and protect these electronics.
