    Ya have problems with asians or something?

    no, but its common knowledge electronics made in asia are inexpensive simply becuase labor is cheap, but the quality is not near the same

    it all comes down to you get what you pay for


    and back to you tbird,,, yes i had 3 all from the same suplier but still,,, 3 seperate ones that failed in 2 different ways.

    I dont see too much of a difference between the 2 looks wise but as for how it is built it is obvious the Xenarc is assembled to last, as soon as i got mine the same day i hacked the screen all up just because after i tested it i could tell the thing was built solid. didnt have a second thought about it. If i could do it over again i would of bought a xenarc up front and saved the mos i put into the lilli


    its all opinion though,,, you might get one that works and lasts

Anyone else have a similar setup with VGA and USB extension for your lilliput? Could the blurryness be related to my extensions? interference?

    No i have a 3m VGA extension cable, and USB cable and my Xenarc is clear as a bell.

    The screen going blurry is most likely a poor connection at the lilliput 9-pin din connector. This connector is a pos. Waggle it around a bit.

    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.

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

    Thanks! That was my second guess.

    Along this line, I've had some discussion with a few others regarding replacing this 9-din connector. Has anyone attempted and successfully accomplished such a task?

    yes you can replace the 9 pin connector, do a search. I cut out the connector and hardwired mine, works perfect now. I still have issues with the touchscreen along the right side of the screen, but everything else about my lilli is great.

    Tbird, if you only have issues with the touchscreen, wouldn't it be more cost efficient to just get a different touchscreen overlay rather than buy a xenarc?

    Had my Lili for two months,works pretty good, but on long trips it gets real hot and I have had it shut off. Now a long trip for me is about an hour or so, so I'm not sure is that is standard. Praying it doesn't start acting up, 300-400 is kinda steep after the initial 260 for the lili.

    Back to the original topic--- Xenarc sounds better than Lilliput. I mean when you pronounce them. Xenarc sounds high tech.. "Lilliput" reminds me of butterflies and lillies, but that's just me. I'm just a newbie. Use the search button.
