    There is no such thing as a good pull-out screen.
    They all have issues, mostly with build quality and reliability.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Well on install number 1, I used a K-90 screen. It was actually pretty good. Its gears are metal so you didnt have to worry about wear and tear. My only gripe with it, was that it didnt go flush with the dash, there is a part that sticks out. Other then that it was cool. Also that screen from the mp3car store is way over priced and not even motorized..... Here are a few:

    Thanks for the info..but I have a few concerns.

    From nearly everyone on this site, they say if you must go single in-dash, get springloaded and not motorized. Due to motors failing, will not work in cold temps, etc.

    As far as the 700ITD goes - Ebay has it for the same price as this website. Xenarc's website has it slightly more. My only gripe with ebay is warranty, and if anything ges wrong with it. I like being able to call/email a company directly and dealing with them over an off-brand one I got on ebay. Xenarc seems like a rather large company as I see the name all over the forums here.

    I don't mind spending 100$ more for something more reliable.
