Are all the accessories listed on the site also compatible with the GX series?

Like what? We have a lot of different accessories for all types of displays... but currently only the remote and internal USB cable are truly usable.

Specifically I was wondering if the temperature probe was compatible with the GX series. (http://www.matrixorbital.com/product_in ... an-cooling)

No, the digital Baybus addon has not been released yet. We hope to release it in the next 8 weeks or so.

Just a note about the internal USB cable option...

It is possible to make your own from the existing cable, provided you have another internal USB connector to sacrifice (or the connector and pins to make one from scratch). However, it takes a little patience and/or courage to do it.

Of course the internal USB option is great for those who don't want to fuss with it.

Any cable with a mini b usb connector (thats the small one found on more digital camera's) will do, we do sell internal cables in case you can't find one.

Why isn't this display packaged with the internal connector instead of the external? After all, it's an INTERNAL display. :roll:

You really should give people the option to choose.

Its kinda of a weird situation, if we ship the internal one any novice user would freak out and go 'whaaaaa whats that cable and where does it plug into' if we ship the external one that everyone understands how to plug in but the more advanced users go 'its an internal display, should come with an internal cable *DUH*' we can't ship both without increasing prices, however if you contact sales before placing your order they should be able to swap the cable for you.
