Summary

To sum things up, let’s first talk about the aesthetics of the device. While this device is rather simplistic and doesn’t have any fancy bells and whistle for a housing, the black acrylic frame is rather nice. The 2.8″ LCD display is crisp and sharp; it’s not HD quality but it does the job. A minor gripe we have for the aesthetics is that the device is open to air and not enclosed. While we didn’t have a issue, we can see this device being much more attractive if there was a completely enclosed housing. Of course that would bring the cost of the unit up, and we’re rather happy with it’s pricing as it is.

When it came to the software, we feel that ColdTears GOverlay did a great job on a intuitive GUI. While it does take a little while to get used to the menus and layout, it wasn’t hard to navigate through the software. They required additional applications to be running in the background for the LCD unit to fully function though, so if you’re the type that doesn’t like all these apps running this may cause some concern. We found that while the required software didn’t take up much resources, it will put some additional stress on your CPU when you are running a bunch of other software already.

Overall, we had a great experience with the unit and we managed to set up the display to show the information that was important to us. While you are not limited to what we showed, we would encourage the user to play around with it and customize your display settings exactly how you like it. That’s the whole idea behind it and we think ColdTears Electronics hit the nail on the head with the GOverlay LCD display.

The ColdTears Electronics GOverlay can be found only on eBay for $31.99, which is a great price for what this device can do. While we had some minor gripes on the aesthetics of the device, we can’t really complain here as you get what you pay for. So here at Pure Overclock, we give the ColdTears Electronics GOverlay LCD Display a Good Hardware award.
