    I plan on putting some pre-tinted plexi over my drive bays, and in bottom 2 put one of these 2 LCDs in it. Do you think they will be bright enough to show through tinted Plexi when they're on? I think stealthed LCDs look so bad ass, and these would match my case scheme perfectly.

    really depends on how 'tinted' the plexi is?? them displays look bright, hold a dull led up behind the plexi and have a look how much light you can see.

    Ah good idea! I'll do that when I order the plexi. Now I think it will work, because right now i have some like %20 tint, and dull leds show through ok.

    MMMM, they should, smoked plexi tends to transmit more red light than any others, however they look pretty dim. If a normal brightness red led doesent show, I would suggest tring to get an VFD with a red filter.

    Do you happen to know of a site with cheap prices that ships in the US? *(for VFD)
