# Thread: Just got my StarVision Pixelon! Need Power!

1. ## Just got my StarVision Pixelon! REVIEW!

I couldn't believe it when Mr. FedEx showed up this morning at my door.. On a Saturday of all days!!

I was just beginning to wonder if they shipped it out yesterday and emailed me the tracking number yet, and here the friggin thing is showing up on my doorstep!

You can believe I was very happy to see Mr. FedEx..

I'll post some pics in a bit, after I head over to Radio Shack and get a power adapter..

What kind do I need?

The other thread said 12v, 1mA on page 20, but I find that hard to believe. The box clearly says 12v, 1a, and it consumes < 8W of power..

So what do I need for this bad boy?

If the box says 12v, 1a then get that or a little larger. 1ma wouldn't power a led light.

3. Does this one look right?

It says 12v, 1000mA, which I would assume equates to 1A.

yes 1000ma = 1a

5. that should work in theory, but i have one, and it puts out 14.2 V according to my fluke multimeter

I have heard similar reports elsewere. I dont know what the true voltage range for that bad boy (screen) is, just giving you a heads up.

6. Well, the voltage range is stated on the box as well:

Supports 11V DC~24V DC

well there you go

8. 14.5V on your fluke is probably the off load output, when you attach that monitor it will drop to around 12V.

fair 'nuff

I cut off the tip and spliced in some butt-connectors that allow me to snap my LCD into the AC or into my car.

I must say I am very impressed with the screen. It could be a tad brighter, but I'm OK so far.. I have yet to put it in the car and see what it's like during sunlight....

The cables are not finicky one bit. I never had interference..

Compared to the Xenarc v1 (180cd/m2) it is brighter. I would also say it's a wee bit clearer. Sorry, can't compare to a Lilliput, as I don't have one.

The casing does seem very cheap looking, but it grows on you after a few minutes, and after seeing how nice the screen looks. The headrest shroud and remote work as expected. I haven't messed with the USB touchscreen yet, sorry.

Here's some pics.. I kept saying to myself "I'll post clearer pics than the other guys posted" but it just seems it's damn near impossible to get a good pic of an LCD with enough light to light up the case, and not too much light that it causes a glare.. *sigh*

The LCD itself is not blurry. It's very clear. These pics definitely do NOT do it justice.. I almost shouldn't even post them...

*56k beware*

All in all, I must say I am happy with it.. I hope it works out in my car and isn't too washed out from the sunlight... Time will tell.

\$239 + CA tax + 2-day, \$15 shipping =
