    Xenarc, Lilliput or Starvision? What to buy?

    Which monitor is better? I see that most people here are buying Lilliput. Why? Because it's cheaper? Is Xenarc that much better for the price difference(from my research $150 to $200 more). And what's with that Starvision, any experience yet?

    Thanks in advance,

    The "hearsay" answer is:
    Xenarc is most expensive, but probably best quality. Possibly not as bright though, but I hear that they upgraded the screen to their upgrade brighter screen.

    Lilliput has most of the dialogue lately, cheaper than the Xenarc, but it seems not as good quality, a pain to purchase, and probably a bigger pain to get serviced.

    I think the jury is still out on the Starvision as everyone who has ordered one is still waiting for it (me too). Supposedly next week the USB touchscreen versions will be in and hopefully in the mail to me. So far this one is falling into the "pain to purchase" catagory too.

    I don't know many that have had lots of experience with hands on experience with all the choices. The above is just a summary of posts that are as good as what they are.

    Kind of undrelated, but what exactly is your username supposed to be? I know how I am reading it, but I am curious what you meant by it.
    Never be afraid to do something yourself. Remember - amateur built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.

    LOL
    on the user name,
    I have a lilliput comming in the mail soon, I got it on ebay shipped for $265 wow nice deal. I looked at the Xenarc but for the price and the little bit of extras it has I felt it was not worth-it to spend the money. I can almost buy two lilliputs for the same price.

    I will not be reading to much text on the screen any way. I am going to be watching lots of movies on my carputer. If you need a good screen for text then just get the Xenarc an be happy!

    Exactly what you think I meant . I use this nick everywhere I have to create an account (also Quake III and UT2003 online gameplay) and to most people it means nothing, except cases like yourself.

    I went ahead and bought the xenarc because it's going to be perminatly embeded into the dash so I don't want any issues with it. I did get one with the new brighter CC and it is indeed nice and bright. Haven't tried it in direct sunlight yet.

    That is true too, it had some influence on my nickname selection. I wonder what that stands for in their song title.
