    I am so happy with my Screen !!!

    hey Guy's

    Just had to tell you how happy with my 7 inch screen I am. It is a TM-701L 7" with touch screen. Originally I was tossing up between VGA and Composite, I suppose the price got me in the end.

    I am so happy with my choice. Digitalww was a pleasure to deal with, arrived in less than 4 days !!!!!!!

    There is no problem reading text 640*480 and 800*600. I have not changed the font size.

    I am using MYHTPC for my interface.

    Arby's Winamp skin looks great too.

    I originally powered it up with a GF2 MX 200 and it looked great, then I tryed my new GF4 (The cheap one) cost 99$AUD and the picture quality was far better.......... My GPS maps look great too.

    I tryed taking pics but they suck!!!!!!

    Touch screen is great too !

    I am happy to answer any questions you guys have about this screen.

    Hey, that is so cool that you are happy with your screen. Armen is a really nice guy.
    I have a few questions: Is the image filling up the whole wide screen? if so, are you using powerstrip? How is the brightness during the day? is it readable enough?

    Yeah, I actually have the same screen, just installed it yesterday, but I can't seem to get it to fill the whole screen. I use 800X600 resolution and the vertical part does fill the whole screen. What do i do? Powerstrip does not work. XP won't let me update my drivers, it says my old monitor drivers are better than the ones i'm trying to install. Any help?

    I have the same screen too. What I did to fill the screen was I set my video card to 800x600 PAL mode. There is a bit of clipping (top and bottom) but it much better then a partial empty screen. I have a Radeon 7000. Also the text is a bit better to read too. Check out the picture. http://upload.nowherenews.com/files/70684092.jpeg

    Canada use NTSC too. Your screen will support PAL and NTSC. I am not sure if your laptop video card support PAL output. If it does you can go into display property and look for a setting that will switch to PAL.

    Ok, I make my own INF file, correct??? I put 800x640 as the resolution. I leave everything else the same. Then I go to device manager, and down to monitors, and then I right click the defalt monitor icon and click properties and then upgrade drivers. It asks where the drivers are, i point it to the new .inf file i made with powerstrip, then it says that the drivers i have for the monitor are better than the ones i'm trying to install. Am i doing something wrong??? Please help!!!!

    I have dell laptop with ati mobility 8mb graphics card.

    I have the EPIA 800 which has a crappy video but my screen is "almost" completely filled. So Im happy for now =).

    Anyone have a picture of how Armen installed the usb boards on his screens? I ordered my screen + tsk separately so I had to do somethiing creative to make it work.
    Mine needs to be updated.
