    LCD general question

    I am looking at the Lilliput 7" touchscreen for an install in a 97 camaro, I was wondering if it can be taken out of its housing for a cleaner install in a dash? I would like to put it right where my stock headunit it, and from some other camaro posts it seems a 7inch fits very well in this spot...just wondering if i can do this without trashing a new screen.

    I'm new to the CarPC game, but I've been visiting this site for about a year now trying to decide what type of equipment to buy. As far as LCD's go, I've read a lot of posts where people seriously regretted buying Lilliputs. The Lilliput screens can be removed and custom molded into a dash. However, I've read a lot about people ruining their lilliputs by taking them out of the enclosure. I've also read that while many people have had luck with these screens, the touchscreen often goes haywire as well.

    While Xenarc's are also succeptable to breaking once they are taken out of the case, I've read enough cases to convince me that the Xenarc is the way to go, even at $100+ more per screen. Like I said, I don't own either, but I have a piggy bank just about full waiting to purchase the Xenarc 700TSV.

    Good information, Anyone else have anything to say? Are the Xenarchs worth the +100?

    From what I've seen, the Lilliputs tend to have some quality problems. The people who have one working are generally happy with them. They seem to have more failures int he touchscreen or the display more often than the Xenarc units.
    That's not a promise that you won't get a flaky Xenarc, either. Is the probability of getting a good Xenarc better than a Lilliput? In my opinion, yes.
    Only you can decide if that's worth the extra c-note.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
