  • DS700YYV USB VERSION Available VERY SOON

    I should be accepting orders for the USB version of the 700YYV from GAIN very shortly, within 2-3 days. The price is still at $399, with full warranty support from me. I will be taking orders as soon as I get a confirmed status from the manufacturer and a date of shipping will be posted at that time. This is what everyone seems to have been waiting for.

    Due to problems in communication with the manufacturer GAIN co., the shipment of the DS700TS-USB model never happened, and never will.

    Apparently the manufacturer has decided that the only distributor for their products in the USA should be Xenarc (tm). It was pointed out to GAIN that Lilliput is making a screen of comparable quality, with many similar features and some better ones. We also mentioned that Lilliput is selling the screens at a significantly lower price. GAIN didn't appreciate the reccomendation that they lower their cost, and instead has refused to fulfill the order that was ready to ship.

    I know many of you have been waiting for these screens to arrive so you can place an order. Many others have been seeking out the touchscreen from Lilliput, and have found that they are not shipping yet to any dealer in significant quantity.

    As many of you know, this Lilliput screen is a 7" VGA + Composite TFT LCD. It has a brightness rating of 400 Nits, compared to 260 nits for the GAIN screens. It also has a USB touchscreen, which is a new feature for that company. I believe that these screens will satisfy all of your needs for an in car computer monitor. In all regards, it is probably a much better unit than the GAIN screens.

    This new model with the USB touchscreen is shipping on October 15th, and I have ordered 100 units to try out. They will be sold to anyone at $300, Which should be the most competitive price you can find. Keep in mind, many of you have been customers of mine before, and we have always had an excellent reputation with this community.

    It is disappointing to have to make this announcement, but hopefully we can continue to provide an excellent touchscreen at the best price.

    Due to this situation, I will not be accepting orders for the new screens until they are in stock and ready to ship

    The same warranty will be provided, and DS Customs will offer complete support for these screens.

    NOTE: ANY CUSTOMER WHO HAS ALREADY ORDERED ONE OF THE DS 700 TS-USB MODELS HAS BEEN SENT AN IMPORTANT EMAIL ABOUT THIS. Please check your email before sending any hate mail
    Customers with older GAIN screens will receive support to the capabilities of our company. If there is a critical problem with your screen, it will have to be replaced with a Lilliput screen, contact us for more details.

    Also, when GAIN releases the 7" Motorized in dash screen, we will still try to find a way to carry them for you, even if it takes different channels of supply. There is still no firm release date on those units.

    Thank you all for your support,
    Dave
