Ah, I see they are now cutting corners a little, the 700tsv had 5-wire resistive touchscreen - now only 4-wire.
a Shame really.
Has anyone had any experience with the new Xenarc 705. I've seen it on Ebay for $298 and it's at $269 at www.karpc.com.
It seems to have good brightness and contrast ratio.
I'll be removing my stock head unit in my 05 Xterra. I was hoping to stick a monitor in from behind with minor fabrication.
I purchased it. Saved me $100 compared to the 700TSV. I personally think it's crisper than the older 400Nit 700TSV my friend has. I can't compare it to the new 500Nit as I have yet to see one.
-5-wire resistive analog technology is superior to 4-wire, 8-wire and resistive matrix technologies
-Most durable resistive analog - drift-free operation even when exposed to temperature fluctuation
-Life span of 35,000,000 touches versus 1,000,000 touches from 4-wire resistive
-Increased optical clarity equals higher brightness and a sharper display
-Greater touch point density means better accuracy
-Faster response time and increased speed
-No external electronic correction needed
So, getting the 700TSV for $100 more seems fair to me, you get 100 more brithness and the things above.
What do you guys think ?
ps: need to decide on a screen asap since its the last part missing for my carputer
I just bought the Xenarc 705TSV and am very disappointed. I can't get the thing to display in it's native 800x480 resolution. I have tried it on two different video cards, both of which support that resolution. They have a FAQ where they recommend PowerStrip software (not free) if you are having problems with it. That is just wrong.
