Gigabyte GO-M1600B Multimedia DVD-ROM

A Glance At The GO-M1600B
The main attraction of the GO-M1600B is its faceplate. This is the core graphical user interface of the product, serving both as a visual and control unit. Occupying the middle portion of the faceplate is a VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) window. This bright, groovy and flashy display is commonly used in consumer lifestyle electronics such as VCR, DVD players and the likes, perfect for attracting visual attention. On both sides of the display is a dial and these complete the controls of the system. It shouldn't be difficult for one to quickly link the appearance of the drive to that of a car stereo unit.
Design of the faceplate is kept clean with just two simple dials.
The rear of the GO-M1600B is a different setting from other optical drives.
Shown here are the supported formats. The left dial here is both a power button, volume control and mode changer.
SRS "WOW" is an audio enhancement that is fast becoming popular. The dial on the right of the logo manipulates tracks, audio effects and SRS "WOW".
