    Wait, so you can't purchase it without the monitor itself? All I really need is the H bracket, since I already have Bybyte's black box. I understand that the bracket you guys have is designed for the frame, not the black box, but I'm ok with modding it a bit to have it fit. Is there a way for us to order the H bracket separately?

    Nivanov:
    I see your point. I will ask them to list just the H brackets for the MT. When our next ocean container gets here we are going to update the site so there is a whole section devoted to the Mini Touch and its parts. We will have everything listed from LCD panels to control boards.

    It'd be awesome if you guys could also have blank connectors for sale. The cables that came with the monitor are good, but they are long and bulky. I already soldered myself a power cable (i found a female 8pin mini din online), and waiting for a 8pin male mini din to solder myself a custom short VGA to DVI-a cable for my all in one project. Those connectors were pretty hard to find though.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I will bring it up in our weekly meeting tomorrow to see what we can do about that.

    I'm in the same boat with the 669hb cable, just that I need vga cable. the 669 H bracket I had to modify, because it was way to tall and weak(bending up the h bracket).

    I bought this screen 2 years ago and have loved it. The only problem I've had is with signal issues due to my alternator.....It wasn't bad enough for me to get another screen so all in all I love it.. I bought it for I think $160 ish from chinavasion after finding it on the forums here. Great deal since at the time the only other option was to pay $300+ for a touch screen. I cut some clear overhead projector sheets to act as a screen protector since you can cut them bigger than the screen and they'll slide in perfect.

    I've connected this monitor to my netbook over the included VGA cable and also to a nettop over a VGA->DVI cable. Both times, I had trouble setting the resolution to 800x480. I had to create a custom resolution, but even when it's set, the text is very blurry, and looking at an analog phase test page (link), there seems to be columns of pixels out of phase, even after auto adjust.

    My nettop is based on NVIDIA ION chipset, so there I can specify (besides resolution and refresh rate) the clock, phase, pixel counts etc. I'm curious if anyone had any luck getting the monitor to display 800x480 clearly.

    I had zero issue displaying 800x480 with graphics adapters that supported the resolution out of the box. I can see why you'd have trouble if you are trying to force the resolution on a device which doesn't natively support it.

    I tried both with Intel GMA945M (netbook) and Geforce 9400m-ION (nettop). I guess neither support it natively. What video card did you test this monitor with?

    EDIT: Also, if I go into the OSD menu on the monitor while the 800x480 mode is on, the menu says 640x480. In your case, did you see 800x480 in the osd menu?
