    Lilli's

    I'm trying to decide between an 8" screen and a 7" screen. The 8" lilliput says it only has 921,600 pixels, where the 7" says it has 1,152,000 pixels. Does this make the 7" better (resolution)? Is there anything else better or worse between the 2, besides the size? If I can fit a 8" is there any reason to pick a 7" over the bigger screen size? Also what about the 8.4", this an older model I dno't see it on Lilliputs website?

    It would help if you'd provide model numbers that we could use to look up specifications. That or links to the specific models you're looking for.

    But, based on the information that you've provided, the 7" monitor appears to have more pixels, hence is capable of a higher resolution than the 8" monitor. that's not necessarily better, really. After all, how high a resolution are you going to tun on a 7" screen? 1024x768? I serously doubt it, as test would be far too small to read without making some serious changes to Windoze appearance settings.

    Another thing to consider is whether or not these screens have a VGA input. VGA input is different from VGA resolution. VGA input means it has the 15-pin D-SUB connector that you have on your monitor at home for video. For a PC, that's the [/i]ideal[/i] video connection to your screen.

    With most 7" and 8" screens, they are the same size horizontally, but the 8" screen is taller to make it a true 4:3 aspect ratio, while the 7" screens are shorter to produce a 16:9 aspect ratio.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Sorry...I'm talking about all Lilliputs and all w/touchscreens. Not sure of model numbers expect the 7" is 629. I think the 8" is Model 859GL, the here's the 8.4"

    I'm leaning towards the 8.4". Also does anyone have pics of a widescreen dvd playing on a 8" or 8.4" screen? I want to see how much black space there is.

    All the lcd screen mentened above have native resolution of 640x480 VGA. They say it can support 800x600 SVGA or 1024x768 XGA, but its not native and the quality of picture at that resolution get bulry. If you are looking for a native XGA 1024x768 resolution in a small package, than take a look at NL10276BC16-01, this is NEC 8.4" XGA LCD panel with 400 nits, with makes it great of car. I think i can get my hands on these, if you are intrested, let me know.

    From the 629 7" spec:
    Resolution: 800x480
    Dot Resolution: 2400 x 480 (= 1,152,000 dots)


    Isn't that a native resolution of 800x480 and NOT a native of 640x480?

    800x480 is not a standard resolution but if your video card can do it than yes. Yes this lcd that you are talkin about can do 800X480 without image degraded.
