    Best display?

    Hi. I'm new to the forums and I'm planning on building a carputer of my own

    Anyway, I was wondering what the best screen to buy is? I'd like to get a 7" touch screen display, with both vga and rca inputs. The xenarc tsv is my top choice right now. Are there any downsides to this screen?

    I've read that it can auto switch to av2, that seems like a good feature. But I've also read that some screens, but not the xenarc, have customizable buttons. Is the lack of buttons a big drawback? Is the combined cable on the xenarc an advantage or disadvantage?

    Finally, I've read that the xenarc can cause issues with the carputer's usb because the power is cut to the display before the carputer. Is there a way to avoid this problem without cutting up the supplied cabling?

    Thanks very much for the advice,
    --St. Claire

    Downsides to Xenarc: price
    And for some computers the USB power thing.

    7" Xenarc if you have a high budget, 7" Lilliput if you have a low budget. Simply the two best.

    On most computers I don't think the USB thing really matters, does it?

    Thanks. It sounds like Xenarc is the way to go. My budget is small, but I'm willing to pay for quality. Does anyone happen to know the exact dimensions of it?

    Thanks again,

    In my humble opinion, the LQ9D161 is a great way to go on a budget. My windows are tinted pitch black, and while I wish the screen was a little less reflective, it hasn't been a major complaint.

    Liar. You love to say it.

    The dimensions are in the FAQ Emporium here. Go look!
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
