mirroring/flipping. I believe it's independent of each input.
I believe it has auto-on.
built in regulator so it can be connected to automotive power.
Could be brighter
funky power connector.
Touchscreen driver or screen seems to be a bit flaky.
Review: I bought this off of eBay, actual link supplied above. I got it to replace the 12" screen that was way too big. I can't supply any pictures of the actual unit, all I have is a camera phone which doesn't take good enough pictures. The one's I'm posting are from the auction. It comes with a remote which I've never used, all the controls are on the front of the screen and work just fine. A power/composite/audio cable, VGA cable, stand that tilts and pans, stylus. There are cables/pigtail from the back of the monitor. On the left side (looking at the front of the monitor) has the VGA and USB. The right side has a PS/2 connector that supplies power, two video inputs and one audio input.
The 12" that I had was suppose to be 250nit, I'm not sure what this is rated at but I would say it's probably around 300-350nit. It is certainly brighter but not daylight readable.
The dimensions given in the auction and quoted above are a bit off. I measured it and found it to be 9.25 x 6.25. I didn't check the thickness.
I have this running off the my computers PSU, M2-ATX. When I start the computer up it turns on the monitor and there is a picture. I'm not sure if this is considered auto on or not.
The only problems I've had with this monitor seems to be the touchscreen or it's drivers. Works fine in RR but when trying to navigate windows, the curor seems to jump around a lot. It could be the fact I'm running it at 800x600 and not the 800x480. It's not really a huge problem since I'm usually just in RR.
The other problem is the power/video cord. In the picrture that shows the cords and stand it's the cord on the left. That cord is close to 8' long! That's 8 FEET! which I suppose would be great if you were running a backup camera, but if you were trying to run something like a DVD and a camera its going to be funky. Also at the end of this cable is the wires for power. They run into the little square box in the picture. Why anyone would want to run the power 8' away I'm not sure. I'm not using a camera or DVD at this time so what I did was cut up a keyboard extention cable and spliced in the power to that. It would have made a lot more sense to have a seperate power connector. I might try and open it up some day and see about doing just that. That way I could then run a camera without relocating the power. One good thing about the power is that it has it's own regulator (little square box) and fuse. This could, and I might just do it someday, hook directly to the automobile system.
This monitor more then fits my needs and I would certainly consider buying another one.
