Pure Luxury – Origen AE’s HTPC with a 12.1“ Touch Screen


OrigenAE S21T HTPC

Like the case itself, its bundle is a little unusual and quite extensive. In addition to the usual cables and screws, the S21T also ships with two remote controls that simplify operating the PC later on quite a bit. The smaller of the two controls the TFT screen, the larger is meant to support the operating system, preferably Windows XP/Vista Media Centre Edition (MCE). Additionally, Origen AE includes several Serial-ATA data cables and power cables. The manual is printed on thick, heavy paper, giving the impression not so much of a manual but of an advertising brochure.

    Hmmm, there are several HTPC cases that 'support' (a subjective word)1080 HD, but using a cloned output from a high-end GC to simultaneously drive both a large Plasma/CRT/LCD TV and a 7/12 inch display seems to run into problems when the small LCD uses a VGA rather than a DVI connector due to the missing HDCP handshake on one output. I have just ordered a Blue-ray drive and HD Fury2 emulator and would be interested to know if anyone out there has successfully achieved a seemless cloned output, i.e, without resorting to manual scaling adjustments or a partial scrolling display (Origen S21T). I would appreciate your advice/comments as I am looking to purchase a new HTPC case within the next 2 weeks.

    Silverstone CW02 is a far better mix of features/quality/price IMO
    I don't get these massive LCD touch-screens.
    I can use my mimo monitor, handheld, Dinovo Edge, & URC.
