    2006/2007 Lilliput 7 inch vs new 2008 Lilliput 7' inch

    Hello

    I have a Lilliput 7 " 629GL but I dont know if it is the 2006/7 model or the 2008 model. Is there a way I could be sure? Thanks for any replies.

    I'm looking for a full review of the 2008.

    The mp3car store pictures look drastically different, but then again, it could be marketing.

    With that said:

    There is nothing printed on it to indicate a version?

    2008 model is LED backlit...pretty big difference there.

    On most electronics, on the back side, there's a sticker that shows the manufacturing date.

    I would expect a pretty big difference, I was just hoping to see some home/car pictures of it.

    The manufacturing date could be a cross over of 2007 when it's a 2008 version.

    I'll look on the back of mine when I get home (not installed yet).

    It's a shame it's not the 701 model...would make it easy to drop a new one in. Hopefully I'm satisfied post install enough not to be envious of the availability of a better screen for only $60ish more than I paid.

    If you found your answer, please update the thread~

    OK here's my problem,

    Check:
    http://www.lilliputuk.com/joomla/ind...=75&Itemid=101
    and
    http://www.lilliputweb.net/ts629.html

    The stats from the websites quote these monitors as only:
    Contrast : 250:1
    Brightness : 350 cd/m2

    Has someone bought one of these from Mp3Car does the box say contrast 500:1 and 400cd/m2 brightness?

    I don't mind paying the extra $80 for the extra brightness but I just want to make sure it's not a gimmick or typo!

    Thank you!!!

    Per the page on the store:

    http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Show=TechSpecs

    Some manuals have not been changed and may say incorrectly that the ratio is 200:1.
    We have contacted Lilliput directly and have confirmed that they have not updated some of their documentation.

    We've noticed this on the new Xenarc boxes as well...two different manufacturers...neither have updated their packaging/documentation.
