    Feeldo FD-TS07A

    Morning all,

    So, I'm on the lookout for something cheap and cheerful to put in the Land Rover. It'll get bounced about on the primitive 40 year old suspension, and grubby fingers will prod at the touchscreen.

    VGA connector, 800x600ish, touchscreen, and retractable single DIN is the spec. 180 finds me the "Feeldo FD-TS07A". Aside from the lame name that nobody other than Ebay has heard of, has anyone got anything to say about them? Good, bad, indifferent? Chunky and ugly is fine, as long as it's not going to vibrate out of the housing, or knacker itself within half an hour :-)

    Cheers

    Kyle

    i can't comment on that specific model, but have read plenty about other motorized vga screens. to date, all of them are given horrible reviews..

    since the last review, i have read that lilliput has updated their screens to use metal gears instead of plastic, and have not heard/read any updates on the quality since..

    1. lilliputs became known for stripping out their plastic gears that motorizes the screen in/out, and up/down. as stated above, lilliputs revision could have changed that..
    2.xenarc's have become known for breaking the video-ribbon-cable that goes between the main chassis, and the lcd. i am not aware of any updates to correct this issue.

    from what i understand almost all screens suffer from similar problems-- though many problems don't become evident until a couple months/years down the road.

    if you happen to have really good luck, please update this thread, so others can hopefully use them as well.

    I will add that if you're going to put this in a Land Rover that will see off-road use, the vibrations will likely lessen the lifespan of any retractable screen, even the best quality units.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Excellent, thanks for all the hints. Although I've got softer parabolic springs on it, I think our roads in the UK would still batter it to bits. It was going to be mounted in the Mud Defender Console here http://www.mudstuff.co.uk/shop/23_mud-console which is also large enough for a double DIN unit. I just wanted to have the extra space available for an amateur radio unit.

    Summer arrived, and all the work got shelved in favour of more appealing things, so now I'm starting to look at the projects again. Looks like I'll be going down the double DIN route, but will update this thread with any changes :-)

    cheers

    Kyle
