    VisionTouch 10.4" High Resolution , Incredible viewing angle screen.

    I had the 10.4" Shark screen from www.gooddeals18.com

    It was a very nice screen. Bright with good colors/contrast/etc. But the resolution was a little low for what I needed. It was 800x600 and I was trying for a higher resolution to match my HD source material.

    Also the screen didn't have a great viewing angle. Don't get me wrong it is good but not great. When you move to the side in normal driver side / passenger side viewing or if you sit higher than the screen ,it is dimmer and loses contrast.

    So I was off on a search for a better screen.

    I found this one :
    http://www.avionicslcd.com/10.4%20in...,4_XGA_LCD.htm

    The specs:
    Size 10.4"
    Resolution 1024x768
    Brightness 400 nit
    Contrast Ratio 500:1
    Backlight 2 ccfl
    Viewing angle 89 ° / 89 ° / 89 ° / 89 °
    Cost $589

    I called AvionicsLcd up and after quite a bit of talking I got one ordered. It came in yesterday and I am quite impressed.

    First the resolution is excellent. My 720p HD movies really shine. You can see all the detail now with none of the blurriness that was in the 800x600 screen.

    Next the viewing angle is INCREDIBLE. You can literally move ANYWHERE in the car and it looks the same as if you were sitting right in front of it. It has a TRUE 89 ° viewing angle, up/down/left/right.

    The brightness is terrific. It is definitely a lot brighter than the Shark screen which is rated at 300 nits. I have to turn the Shark's contrast and brightness way up to match the VisionTouch and then I lose contrast ratio and black levels. With the high brightness of the VisionTouch the black levels are wonderful.

    Sunlight readability. Well it's been cloudy all day, but yesterday when I installed it for a few minutes the sun was out and the readability was a lot better than the Shark. But I will have to do more testing when I get some sunshine

    Overall if you want a good 10.4" and money isn't that big of a deal, then I HIGHLY recommend this screen.

    Here's some pics showing it as compared to the Shark.
    The VisionTouch is on top and the Shark on bottom.
    These tests were to show the incredible viewing angle.

    These pics really show the off angle viewing advantage of the VisionTouch.





    You can really see in this next pic that the Shark has a horrible viewing angle from above

    Did you happen to talk to them about the 1500 NIT upgraded version of that display?

    Your display caught my eye, but after reading their page and seeing that they off the same screen with a 1500NIT upgrade, I'm more interested in the upgraded version! That display would rock!

    They won't sell the 1500 nit version to the public. They only sell those to the Government.

    When I asked about a brighter 10.4" I got this response :
    We might re-produce 1000 nit version this wide viewing angle panel if we get many demands .

    Hmmm, I guess we'll have to start demanding the 1000nit

    And government only on the 1500nit huh?

    Think they could be persuaded to let a representative of a Texas government agency purchase a sample for "testing"? I have an uncle who could probably help me out with that......

    Dude how's that LCD working out for you? I'm planning on building my car PC and now I'm in the beginning phase (research) So I'm still looking for a LCD for my dash. I'd buy that LCD in a second, but the only thing I'm not sure about is the aspect ratio.

    DO they have an LCD that is high res but 16:9 or 16:10 ratio?

    The viewing angel and Brightness are huge selling points for this LCD, just what I'm looking for, (other than the ratio).

    I see they also have a 1500nit brightness LCD wow.

    It was wonderful in the Yukon for several years. But now it is sitting in a closet.

    It won't fit in any of the current vehicles I own.

    I haven't looked in a while so I don't know what they offer but they said they don't carry 16:9 because it is not used or wanted in Avionics.

    Oh I see. If its just sitting in the closet and you don't plan to use that LCD soon or ever, would be willing to sell it? if yes, then PM me with a reasonable offer. If I can afford it at the moment, I'll let you know. Assuming its still in good and working condition.

    just looked at your yukon build, good job man.
