  • LCD vs LED

    Hi guys

    I have narrowed my screen choice down to two one is an LCD and one is an LED, the LED is over £200 more than the LCD and i wondered is there that much of a difference

    You are confusing the terms.

    When it says LED it is because the backlight is made with LED's and not an CCFL, this can be good and bad, usually better, since it's possible to make brighter screens with LED's

    They are both LCD and one of them is backlit by LED's.

      ^ exactly the point i wanted to bring up. so far, there is no car monitors that are led displays.

      the biggest difference between ccfl, and led backlights is the brightness, and the way they react to cold. ccfl screens need to warm up before use, led will turn on right away.

      the inelmatic screen has recieved good reviews around here, so i would go with it..

        has the linitx screen not got good reviews? one of the reasons im moving towards the linitx is the light sensor which adjusts the screen brightness automatically

        Do you know if the inelmatic can do this?

        Any help would be great, its so hard to decide!

          Just something to think about. I havenít tried the linitx screens but I have found on a few generic screens and my 8Ē LED backlight unit that automatic brightness is not that effective and it has never given me enough range to cover day and night driving. I had to use the Windows API driven by data from a micro linked to the PWM dash brightness signal from the car to automatically control screen brightness, results are superb and from reading the forums, using the Win API appears to be the way most frontend and standalone application software does it.

          You really need to find someone using the screen to find out if the inbuilt automatic brightness works over a wide range, however in my case I could not get the screen dark enough at night even with the LCD controls wound down to 0, so the built in brightness was never going to cut it. Others may be better.

            i don't remember coming across any bad reviews of any linitx products either.. though, i am really starting to dislike my ccfl-backlit display--the colder temps around me cause it to flash on/of for about 15min before working...

              Linitx screens are pretty good.

              I only have the TMR version which is s step down from the transflective and it has been pretty good.

              The light sensor which controls the screen brightness can be bit of a pain in the Arsenal when you use the touchscreen and your arm/wrist/hand blocks the light to it. This causes the screen to dull down as it thinks it's gone dark and then when you remove your appendage it the brightens up again.


              Also the support from Linitx is excellent.
