  • Lilliput or Xenarc?

    I've been searching around on this forum, and found a lot of threads about problems with Lilliput LCD's. I searched for Xenarc problems, and only found 1 or 2. So my question is, should I go with Lilliput, and will it be reliable? I was looking at getting this one here > http://www.digitalww.com/VGA_TM_710VG.htm. Has anyone had any good/bad experiences with this one?

    Thank You

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway

        i'd say xenarc, but be careful with the connector. that's the only prob i have w it. i tried the lilliput but it is more picky about resolutions, and it doesn't turn on automatically. it may be brighter, but u can get the xenarc w the ultra bright option. u just have to request it. it's a lil more expensive but i think it's a better option.

          Do you know where I could find a 7" Xenarc with touchscreen and vga? How much more is the ultra bright option?

              "Supposedly", the new connector is no longer a problem.....but we must wait and see......

                Go with a Xenarc. The liliputs are VERY unreliable. I think I've seen 10-15 threads about broken liliputs.

                I can barely see past my Xenarc at night as is, I'd never want something brighter like a liliput.

                  For the price go with the Lilliput, but buy from a decent dealer not HK as this seems to be where most of the the problem units come from.

                  Try www.cartft.com, there customer service is great and prices are very good

                  I have had mine 2mths no problems!

                    Ok, well the Lilliput is here for $350, and the Xenarc is here, which seems to have the same specs, except for "LCD Panel Brightness*: 400 cd/mē Display Brightness: 350 cd/mē". What's the difference? How much of a price difference is the Xenarc one, and where could I buy it? Off blicky_1's link, I found this one. But it says "Like Xenarc displays (USA)", so its not really an Xenarc? Plus, I would like to pay in US dollars.

                    Thanks

                      you buy xenarc from www.xenarcdirect.com ... it's about $500 (without brightness option)

                      i'm debating the same thing ... i'm not sure the xenarc is worth $200 more tho ... so i'll probably get the lilliput ... unless the digitalww guy (armen?) doesn't write me back ... i get very annoyed when pre-sales e-mails go unanswered.

                        Yeah, that's a lot. I'll probably take my chances with the Lilliput.

                          just buy it from someone states-side ... like digitalww ... that way if you get a dud you can get it replaced without shipping to hk.

                          i'm 90% sure i'll be ordering one from there soon as i get an e-mail reply.
