|-- Setup and Software

There is very little
for you to do
to setup the ID-75. Just assemble the stand and plug in the power
and USB cords. The power cord is a bit tough to get in, and
its designed that way. You have to push down on the plug for
it to slide in all the into the ID-75, this assures a strong
connection and stops the power cord from falling out of the unit
when you move it.
Installation in Windows 2000 was a breeze, I
downloaded the newest drivers from MassWorks site. Installed them,
plugged in the ID-75, and rebooted. The LCD was detected by
Windows and everything was set.
The ID-75 comes with 30 pre-made layouts and a program for
building and customizing already existing layouts. The layout
program has a rather sharp learning curve but that is mainly due to
how powerful and complex the software is.
A rather new addition to the ID-75 is the ability to use
it as a secondary display device. The drivers are for Win2k/XP
only and are still in
beta and comes with no installer. A lot of the features that
you would expect to see in the touch screen display driver aren't
currently implemented. Features like screen calibration or turning off the
LCD after a certain amount of time are not available.
