    What 8" LCD Touch to get and where?

    I would like to add a carputer to my daily driver.

    I would like to go with an 8" instead of the 7" wide.

    I know Lilliput makes one, but is that the best to go with?

    I don't need the "best" 8", but rather a nice reliable unit at a good price.

    Tried to but it won't work on 8" and going through the last 12 pages of posts yeilded no results.

    Doesn't anyone want to submit a review of their 8" touch screen?

    I got mine from ZIPLOCK. Fast, and no fuss. The 8in is definitely easier to read that the compressed fonts on the 7in. It is in fact even brighter than my 2yr old Xenarc.
    The monitor comes with it's own power supplies, but most of all it looks like a power regulator to keep the car's 12v supply constant. The packaging is super, the screens are (I hope) not recycled (like the 7in Lillies). The only gripe is that I have to fiddle with the on/off button. It doesn't have an auto-on but will turn off when there is no video signal.
    When you're driving at 100Mph+ you don't want to have to squint to read the screen.

    Definitely get it from ziplock.
    P.S. It is undoubtedly larger that the Xenarc TSVs when mounted.

    Forgive my ignorance, but can you supply link for Ziplock?

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'm glad to hear you are happy with the Lilliput 8"

    LOL, yeah I found the name on eBay before I asked for the link, but assumed by what he had listed currently it wasn't the same place.

    Are they usually cheaper on eBay?

    fantomos what does quality have to do anything with this? if you buy a lillput of ebay or mp3 store its that same thing. mp3 store might better service. i have notting against mp3 store. but i think the price are lillte high and i understand why. If you want service and some one easy to deal with then buy from mp3store...
