Visor Neo
Saturday September 15, 2001 - 6:38 PM EST - By James Hromadka

The Numbers

Like the Visor Pro, PocketMark 0.2.1 gives the Visor Neo a 168 rating overall (168/170/164) compared to a 125 rating (129/101/132) for the Visor Deluxe. To test real-world usage, I had Star Pilot refresh its grayscale night sky view on City magnitude setting with constellation lines turned on. The Visor Neo took five seconds to finish, while the Visor Deluxe took fourteen seconds. Under Rural magnitude (where more stars are calculated and drawn), the Neo took 14 seconds and the Visor Deluxe took 1:06. That is a dramatic improvement for Visor Deluxe users that move to the Visor Neo.

The Cradle

Put me next to your Cinema DisplayThe Visor Neo has the coolest cradle yet for a Visor. The cradle is completely clear -- not translucent like the ice cradle (I didn't remove the background from the picture here because I didn't want readers to think that the cradle was tinted). This cradle works with all Visors except the Prism and Edge, and is the perfect cradle for Mac users that have a Cinema Display and/or the Pro speakers. And because it is clear, the Neo's cradle looks great with other Visors like the Visor Pro. The Visor Neo has the standard Visor form factor and will work with any accessories that work with the Visor Deluxe.
