    Which lilliput is better? 619/629 vs EBY701?

    I was thinking about picking up either a Lilliput 619/629 or a EBY701. The stats seem similar between the two. Prices are about $50 more for the 619/629. Anyone have any suggestions? I just want a simple screen to get me started, but I don't want to be buying another screen 2 months from now.
    Does the EBY701 come with any cables, remote, or mounting hardware?

    I've had the 619 and the EBY.... The touchscreen seems to be more accurate on the 619, and I can also see the grid lines on the EBY-701. On the other hand, my 619 would get very hot and I had to install a fan over one of the chips to keep it from flaking out even though the board was bare, while the EBY-701 has had NO issues with heat and it's fully enclosed.

    The touchpanel on my EBY broke and Lilliput confirmed via email that the 619 and 701 touchpanels are the same with the exception of where the cable is located. That being said, maybe the touchcontroller is different if the 619 is in fact more accurate?

    I have the 701 and like it. Color is good, looks sharp and has a nice picture on it. Auto-power on works too. Could have a better contrast ratio though. I think that's it's weakest point right there.

    Thanks for the info. I was about to buy a Phylon 70HTC from logicsupply, but I won a new 701 on ebay. For $130 I hope it works.

    I received my 701 today. I must admit, I'm impressed. I was not expecting the quality for the price ($130+shipping on ebay). I've been playing with it for the last couple hours and I can't find much wrong with it.
    The screen is crisp and clear with my video set to 800x600. Touch screen works well. I'm going to take it for a test run tomorrow during my commute - I'll see how it holds up during the day.
    One thing that is mildly concerning is that while hooked up to my watt meter it draws .05 watts when in auto-off mode... probably not a big deal. I drive my car almost every day, occassionally leave it for a week or two for trips - shouldn't be an issue if I disconnect it when leaving for a while.

    Still deciding on how/where to mount it in my car (2005 BMW 325i).

    Good price on that 701. It's hard to justify 5x more for a transflective. Anyways...

    .05 watts, I wonder how much a single LED (such as car alarm) flashing burns. Or even worse, your car alarm going off (flashing your lights, etc).

    I'm sure someone who is very familiar with power consumption can give you the need to worry or not.

    Curious on how the lilliput holds up in the daylight... Lilliputs seem like a good start at a reasonable price... but I really don't want to regret not coughing up a bit more for something that doesn't **** me off everyday.
