    Difference between Xenarc and Lilliput?

    Hey,

    I'm trying to decide between lcd screens for my setup. I will be setting it up on-dash with a mount of some sort with a possibility of a custom in-dash setup in the future.

    But no matter how much i read i can't find what the difference between the two are other than one is 100 bucks more expensive.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Here are a couple key differences:

    Xenarcs can accept unregulated 12v straight from the vehicle electric system.
    Lilliputs require regulated 12v power (despite the fact that many users run their Lilliput off of unregulated 12v power with no apparent issues.)

    Xenarcs will auto turn-on when they receive a signal.
    Lilliput monitors don't.

    Some time ago, Lilliputs suffered from quality issues. I don't think that those are applicable any longer. Although, I must say that I see more users having problems with Lilliput brand screens than Xenarc brand screens.

    Take that information any way you choose.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    actually Lilliput monitors can be programmed to auto turn-on:

    But Xenarcs will automatically detect video signal and switch over and then turn back over to vga when the signal is off.
    Lilliput monitors don't.

    the first lilliput eby701 I bought crapped out on me after 5 hours. Good thing I bought from a local seller. He was able to replace it rather quickly under warranty. The replacement has performed flawlessly so far. Should I have purchased a xenarc instead? No. I should have purchased a sunlight readable monitor instead! I don't care what brand, you just don't realize how bad these touchscreens are in daylight until you've had experience with them. You think they'd only be bad in direct sunlight, but they suck in mid day ambient light. They're only really good towards the evening and at night. I'm really quite embarassed to show off my carputer during the day... I'm kind of feeling insecure about all this, actually

    i got the lilliput eby701 from ebay and loving it so far. havent used it in the car yet but its working well for me inside the house.

    How do the pioneer/alphine touchscreens compare to our vga touchscreens in terms of glare?

    drop by a local circuit city and check them out. I've noticed that they seem to be a whole lot brighter.
