    Lilliput EBY701-NP vs. Lilliput 629GL-70NP

    Hi all,

    I'm currently in the process of discerning what 7inch monitor I wanna stick in my scion tc with these handy fitting components for a nice factory look:http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=ENC-033-B http://www.installer-parts.com/by_item.php?it=95-8202

    Regardless, I'm not sure which Lilliput I want. From my research, I do believe that the EBY701 is the newer of the two, coming out in 2009, while the 629GL came out in 2008. However, the EBY701 is cheaper than the 629GL. Why is this? Which is better? According to the mp3car.com store, both of them have the auto-backup switch which is something I am looking for.

    Help a newb out

    From what I figured out by reading past posts:

    Both monitors now contains the same LCD panel. The big difference between them is the shape and the arrangement of the internal circuit boards. This may come into play if you're doing custom fabrication, but in your application, EBY-701 should work fine.

    I guess the touchscreen is better on 629GL when compared to EBY701. But I'd wait till the experts comment.

    Are they really the same? the 629 says its LED where as the 701 does not mention it

    The 701 would suit my use better but if its inferior might have to find another way around...

    I believe the newer models are exactly the same. I believe that the only difference is the case that it comes in from the factory. I actually broke the touch panel on my EBY-701 and replaced it with a 629 touch panel and it works fine.

    A note from Mo-Co-So website. This should clear the confusion.

    "There is no longer any difference in hardware between the EBY701 and the 629GL. The internal components are identical. Only the outer plastic housing is different. Unless you like the way the GL629 looks better then the 701 there is no reason the purchase it over the EBY701."
