    Exclamation Day Light Readable Screen $441.00

    LinITX.com has a screen that claims is daylight readable for only about $441.00. I am trying to find anyone that may have tried this one out allready. I may take the plundge but want some feedback on it first.
    The specs look great along with the auto on/off feature makes this a much better deal than MP3cars transreflective bug infected lilliput.
    Here is the link

    Search the forums.
    I remember someone making a statistical comparison of the LinITX and the transflective from the mp3car.com store.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    to quote:
    "TMR Technology - Reflective surfaces inside the TFT cell structure direct ambient light back through the display, giving improved daylight readability."

    Improved daylight visability?
    Maybe it's just me, but that sounds very different from daylight readable....

    I'd tread cautiously with my 450 bucks if it were me.

    Here we go- Mp3Car's Transflective vs. CarTFT TMR
    I dunno, seems like the transflective is worth the extra 100-or-so bucks to me from looking at those pics!

    They're not the same screen from what I can see. One is from CarTFT and the other is from LinITX. The LinITX is 600 nit and has some kind of transflective type ability from what I can read. Sounds interesting. We'll see if someone buys it and reports back. Fingers crossed because I'd love to see the price come down on these.

    I found this blurb over at www.pvdisplay.com.

    "Unlike a transflective display, TMR is more transmissive than relective [sic], with some reflective properties. The advantage is better color saturation and better indoor performance than a true transflective technology."

    I'd really be interested to hear from anyone who's given one of these things a try.

    Another nice feature I noticed is that it can accept a wider voltage range. It says: Power Input: 12-16V DC which means this could be powered directly from the battery saving that precious voltage on the 12v line for processors, video cards, etc.

    MOst cars have a regulator that actually regulates the voltage at about 12v. Of course if you are that paranoid connect it to your computers PSU.
    ANyway back to the screen.
    Lilliputs kind of have a bad rep as far as reliability goes. And to spend nearly $700.00 on a screen that may or may not function correctly in a month seems pretty risky. Which is why I think there are a lot of people searching for alternatives. Also lilliputs lack features. Auto On/Off is an excellent feature. The whole reason you have your shutdown controller on the computer is so that it works autonimously with your car, it is nice to have a screen that works the same way. One less button to press.
    I have to agree the transreflective mp3car screen does look better but for the price I am a little hesitant. $700.00 is one weeks pay for me. Yes 36 hours or work. That is a lot of money for something that will only entertain me and might **** me off when it stops working or I get the infamous "lilliput white screen of death". ANyway just looking for input so I can give mine.
    I probably wont get either one now and just stick with a normal 7" touchscreen.

    I've had my lilli connected to the car dc power source for almost a year now. No problems. The naysayers can I'm doomed to screen death. Meh, whatever.

    I do believe that's an "old" opinion of lilli's. Seems most are pleased with the current crop. At least it seems that way by recent threads. Most of the lilli's I've seen people compliain about have been taken apart and put back together. Hmmm..... I wonder why those failed? I'm not saying there's absolutely nothing wrong with some, just quality seems to be much better than it was.

    Sorry, that's not true. At least not anymore. My eby701 lilli has auto on, you can even select it on or off (and other otions) through the manufacturer's menu. One touch dimming is nice too, as I do alot of night driving and usually have the dash and screen lights turned down low for my eyes/glare. No autoswitching for reverse camera though, that is a PITA but I can live with it on a $175 screen.

    No arguements there!
    Just keep in mind, I'm talking about my eby 701 lilli. The Mp3car store lilli is a different model and may be subject to different problems or have different options.
