    Act Up adjective - Say I'm in FrodoPlayer and I go to touch the "next" arrow.. It goes no where near it. Then I'll try and hit menu or something and it won't be anywhere near it again..

    The one time I was hitting all the way over by the clock in the systray and it was clicking on an icon right above the start menu.

    I can recalibrate and hit all 25 points dead on.. It will then work for about 10-15 minutes and then get jacked up again.

    I reinstalled drivers numerous times and recalibrated numerous times. It will work for about 5-10 minutes and then go whacko...

    Well, I have a Lilliput, and it doesn't do that, so just keep in mind that you'll be 'fixing' this problem just by having a different physical device. If you did a straight swap for another Lilliput, the odds are pretty slim you'd have this problem.

    I've had mine something like 6 months now at least, and it works great.

    ...but if you want to feel better, you could argue that by putting that extra $140 into circulation, you're helping the economy! Yay!

    Chairboy.. I used to be just like you.. I would see those threads "My Lilli is all jacked up" or anything similar and I would always post... Saying.. Mine works great!! I love it!! Etc.. So you might not want to toot your horn that yours is working cuz it might come back to bite you like it did me.

    Yea, I coulda got another Lilli and maybe it woulda worked.. But the fact is.. I decided originally to get a Lilli because I thought all the problems were prolly user related.. Now that I know first hand that I did nothing to cause this I agree with people who say they are poorly built.

    So in your opinion.. There is no difference in quality / performance between a Lilli and a Xenarc?

    I really haven't seen any posts in this thread proving that either.. That's why I'm sorta bummed..

    http://digitalww.com/lilliput_vs_xenarc.htm ...have you seen that yet?

    I've had a Xenarc for about 9 months now, and the only problem I've had with it is that sometimes the touchscreen will stop working so I have to power off and back on the screen to get it up and running again. I'm thinking it might have to do with ventilation. Not quite sure though.

    @tbird2340...

    check out this thread (if you haven't already).

    Lilliput Vs Xenarc Count

    this thread shows many various post about problems with lilliput compared to xenarc.

    I originally reported no problems... BUT... as of late... my lillput is really, really blurry. Every now and then it appears clear, and in a few days/reboots -- it's back to blurry.

    I believe (pure speculatation at this point) it to be related to the lilliput VGA/USB cable as sometimes a plug-unplug will resolve some of the blurryness but nothing completely resolves it. Another possibility might be that I have a VGA extension cable to extend my VGA to rear of car where my car pc is located. Anyone else have a similar setup with VGA and USB extension for your lilliput? Could the blurryness be related to my extensions? interference?

    Maybe it will offer you some comfort to know that my next monitor purchase will not be a lilliput.

    - CarPC install complete.
    - CarPC software: CENTRAFUSE
    - Planning/working on in-dash for lilliput monitor

    Ar, those pictures be from the old less bright version 1.0 xenarc matey.

    Also I don't think they were taken under the best of conditions, I wouldn't take them to be true measure of the xenarc vs lilliput.

    I'm absolutely NOT saying that, I don't have data either way. I'm happy with my Lilliput, and I know of hundreds of other people who seem to be happy with theirs, but that's not enough to make a statement like 'they is the same' or 'this one is better'.

    There was a thread recently where people posted what screen they had and if it worked, and there were definately more lilliputs broken then Xenarcs, but the survey wasn't scientific, so...

    Here's how I figure it, a Xenarc is about half again as expensive as a Lilliput. If I buy a Lilliput that's DOA, then I go through the hassle of sending it back and getting a replacement. Total cost, maybe $15 shipping and some time. That's 10% the money cost of deciding to go with Xenarc upfront.

    If I need to get a Lilliput repaired, I'm pretty sure I can have it repaired for less then the price difference between the two.

    If the touchscreen wonks out, I can get a replacement one for < $40 I figure.

    It seems that if I decided to buy a Xenarc, it would be best that I'm making the decision that it must do something better upfront or be a company I want to do business worth, and that I'm paying specifically for that. If I try to convince myself it's because I'll spend more money in the long run on the Lilliput, then I'm not convinced.

    As of 11/15/2004, my Lilliput works great, despite abuse. <shrug> To each their own.

    Okay heres the deal you can get a Lilly for about a hundred dollars less but my thoughts were that if anything goes wrong than you can at least get it replaced or repaired here... in the USA ahhhh....nuff said for me infact if you ask dealers that sell both they will point this out to you
