  • TFT or Dual Scan??

    which is better and why??

    I did a search and it was a toss up.


    thanks in advance

    Dual scan has two problems: bad readability if not looking at it straight on, and ghosting on the screen. TFT is the better option, unless you're concerned about cost.

        Same here. I'm currently going for a graphical VFD for status displays (possibly with a touchscreen), and a 12.1" TFT screen from flat-panel.com that will go to 1024x768 with a VGA input (one awesome display for only $350). Everything will be motorized, so you won't know it's there until the car is turned on.

            Where the hell do you hide 12inches of monitor !?!? Even with a flat panel, you must be driving an MP3-van.

              ... or an MP3 bus!

              TFT is much brighter and has more clarity than Dual-Scan. Dual-scan is old technology and when placed side by side, TFT is WAY brighter and has a wider viewing angle.

              When I was at Comdex last year I saw a cool LCD -- when in bright sunlight it would switch to reflective mode (no backlight). It was really amazing! Imagine a nice TFT panel showing a crisp, bright image in direct sunlight!

                      The TFT is only going to be for movies and GPS, and will be concealed when not in use (motorization). The VFD will be for everything else, including MP3 functions, and even climate control (I'm building a custom system).

                      Nope, actually an MP3-bug<g>. I'm building a custom dash and console.

                      Yep, that's it. The difference between that one and the other analog input ones is that it has a VGA analog input, which is exactly the same connector that your regular monitor uses. It won't be quite as good as a digital connector, but it will be better than a normal monitor.
