The Luxa² LM300 Touch Pro is a new HTPC enclosure for the discriminating home entertainment enthusiast. While Luxa² is a relatively new brand, they are a division of Thermaltake who are no strangers to HTPC cases and accessories. With features such as all aluminum construction, a touchscreen LCD and fully integrated media software, the LM300 Touch Pro seems to be the total package in terms of a complete multimedia enclosure.

Yes it is and it works suprisingly well! It's also very easy to mount and unmount for doing reviews. :cool:

a few questions:

Does the software that comes with this automatically know that there's a second display hooked up, and play videos in full screen on it? Does the software cover both displays?

Also, does the little LCD display have to be the primary display? Would running games with this thing constantly involve changing which display is the primary or can you make the touch screen LCD secondary display with the same results? I guess that's the way it would NEED to be isnt it?

Good question! Basically it is like running two monitors on any system, you extend the desktop to the secondary display through Catalyst Control Center or the Nvidia Control Panel. Either one can be the primary display. Ideally the touchscreen would be the secondary display for use as navigation and the primary monitor for display.

If I had the cash Id snag that up. You really cant put a high or low price on a good HTPC case, especially one that looks like your receiver. The whole build quality, cable routing, room and aesthetics put it over the top. That screen is nice and the remote, though not much mentioned about, looks to be high quality. Awesome review erocker, too bad they wont let you keep it.

They have a much cheaper version of the LM300 (called LM300 Pro as opposed to LM300 Touch Pro) minus the touch functions on the LCD. The LCD is smaller than the Touch Pro but I think those are the only difference. The physical dimensions are identical.

Found one on ebay selling for US360. They sell the Touch Pro too for $590. For the difference in price I can live without the touchscreen.
