    whats the difference between the two sunlight readable touchscreens in the store?

    the 8" transflective is only $20 more than the 7" transflective, why is the price difference so small? whats the difference between thetwo besides size?

    you think so? have you priced the film that is used?

    I have, and I can tell you that given the number of different films that can be used together, and that 3m has a moq, you will not diy for less. In fact, based on the moq, you will need to spend over 3k just to have all of the films needed to do a tf and ar upgrade on that panel to the fullest.
    of course I base this on using the vikuiti films from 3m. I am assuming that the monitors in the mp3car store were sent out and upgraded using said films.

    basically, the main differences are, besides the obvious size is the resolution.
    The 7" is native 800x480, the 8" is 800x600. Both use a 6 bit TTL panel, both have stock brightness in the 350-400nit neighborhood (depending on who's website/spec sheets you look at) and both have the same cheap touch screen.
    The average price difference between the 2 is about 20.00. This would be through regular online retailers or ebay sellers.
    I guess mp3car is keeping the price difference comparable to that.
    The actual cost to upgrade either one shoud be close if not the same.
    shoot me a pm with your email and I will give you a little more info.
