It may have been my post that you are reffering too. I would love to hear actual owners of the new lilliputs chime in with their experiences. If you want to know if they better than the old ones just look for threads about people complaining. There is a few but not even near the monmental masses of threads about people complaining about broken touchscreen etc etc.
I own 3 lilliputs and are happy with all three. However none of the old ones i had were sunlight readable. Suposedly the xenarcs were a little better, Even if the new lilliputs were 400nits they wouldn't be direct sunlight readable.
jcdillan and scouse monkey are working on an upgrade. whats interesting is that they used a sepreate 3rd party higher power inverter with the stock CCFL tubes and it was sun readable. There was no speculation on how long the stock ccfl tubes could last at the the higher power rating but it was nice to see screenshots of the lilliput being sunlight readable.
I cant wait until they are done and have a solution for us.
