    Uh-Oh i think im turning into a spammer

    but has anyone used this monitor? http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....tem=1385814731 It has a Sharp screen so should be good... no touchscreen or VGA though still, if I could get touchscreen insert cheap it might be a better option than $600US or so for a Xenarc shipped over... that's just too much money.... I mean at autobarn i can get a 7" Kenwood touchscreen for $1,600AU

    My friend at school (JSTYLE) is a spammer at that board I've never been into the melbccr scene much.... Seem like a bunch of street racers to me

    I did go karting for 5 years and picked up a lot of trophies so I got nothing to prove on the road

    Hi
    The ebay screen is from Aurora - ( korean i think ) don't remember is on ebay auction they mentionned model name but if not search google for aurora tm56k ( that was my old screen) so you can check out teir site.
    My actual screen is also from aurora and i'm very satisfied with it!

    For mounting - I always think in that one day I have to sell my car so if I relocate ventilation or such it has to be reversible or the hardware has to stay in the car- who wants to buy a car with a big hole in console ! Thats to think about

    I, personally remove the screen every time I stop and move it under the seat - its not perfect solution but i use the screen only on longer trip ( >20min) - for the rest of my löittle trips i use no screen - blind navigation - but soon i'll add a little char lcd wich would be enough for winamp.#


    Regards

    felix

    I contacted the seller a while back he said it's this model http://www.tcfb.com/aurora/7LCD.HTM (the one at the bottom)... I think it would be perfect except no touchscreen I suppose I could go aftermarket touchscreen or keypad/board/remote or whatever.... i just think i'd have more flexibility with a touchscreen.... then again i could be wrong

    So how long have you had your screen of the same brand? No troubles? good picture?

    No troubles : My first screen had problems with color - ther e was no red.- but the one i have now ( since July ) works perfectly and has a good image .

    I bought the first screen on ebay from a private person and had a bit trouble. as exchange for the first screen he send me another PAL & NTSC screen - ugly pic ! never saw such a miserable picture before ( it was NOT an aurora!!) . After this I got my money back from the guy ( waited 2 moth ) and I bought my actual screen from a shop on ebay . Now all is working perfectly and i cannont complain.

    If you can get the screen for cheap i would suggest you to buy it.
    I'm really happy with mine .

    felix

    If the touchscreean overlay doesn't take too much luminance you could probably add one - don't know - i'm working with a remote .

    Jesus - that's expensive!

    I've seen those screens before - be sure that if you're paying that sort of money that it comes with a tv tuner and aerials.

    By way of comparison, find the screen that I've just sold here.

    The Xenarcs were a pretty good price for VGA - unless you're willing to snoop out the inverters and backlights etc yourself, it may be difficult to find a VGA for less than the Xenarc money.
