    7" EonOn Display any good?

    I see there are many 7" EonOn for sale on Ebay.
    Are they any good?
    Anyone here which have one in their car?

    link?

    If it is a VGA screen with USB touchscreen control, then it is probably the same as a lilliput. Otherwise, probably not suitable for the car...

    I would not be happy with a 640x480 resolution.

    Hi Sharx,

    I've recently purchased two rear headrest monitors from Eonon - NOT touchscreens.
    I've detailed some of my experiences in my worklog - specifically post 11 and post 14.

    Briefly though, I had a good experience. Their communication has been pretty good. The screens were packed well and shipped quickly. I've only briefly tested my screens, so I can't vouch for their longevity, but Eonon also offerred a warranty which could also be purchased.

    Good luck.

    Cheers,

    Long.1

    Most eBay auctions list as 640x480 because that is what people know. If you didn't know any better and saw some weird widescreen resolution, you might not buy it.

    Most of those screens that say 640x480, are really able to be set at widescreen resolution.

    My friend had a TM868 (8" VGA TS, native res.: 640x480) he bought on eBay.
    True, it could convert up to 1024x768, but you couldn't read anything even at 800x600.

    Tip: Do not settle for anything below 800x600 for you primary VGA/TS monitor (unless you really know what you're doing).

    Well that is weird.

    My Ex-Audio was listed as native 640x480, but it looked fine at 800x600. At 1024x768 it is a little fuzzy in windows, but that is what I am running at now.

    If you plan on using a frontend though, I don't think it really matters. Since RR at 1024x768 or at 640x480 are exactly the same physical dimensions on the screen because it is just an image being scaled. Then in the skin file just increase or decrease the font size, and you would never be able to tell.

    I found a Lilliput 8" widescreen on ebay too, but it's a bit wide for the place in my dash where I was going to mount it.
    http://www.lilliput.cn/889GL-80NP.html


    Do any of you have the Lilliput 8" widescreen?
    Is it possible to trim the sides on the case a little?

    I also need the Passat double DIN to move the heater controls down.
    Do I only need the plastic or must I have the metal frame inside the dash too?
    I guess I only need the plastic since I'm not mounting a double din cd player.
