    how durable is it? when you press on the screen, do you feel like it will snap it backwards or that it will stress the motor? does it have an option to disapear and reapear when you turn the car off and on? and does the touch sensativity work well? or do you have to struggle to get the mouse to point where you want?

    because i was thinking about buying this model from the same company on ebay, i found them and did a search to find this thread, and it seems like you have had a good experience with it; so please advise if you can.

    its the only monitor i've owned for the car but i'd say it's pretty durable from what i've used it. about the pressing too hard, don't really thinks thats an issue as you don't have to press hard to get the touch sensasitivity to respond. the monitor can be set up with different angles from top to bottom and i'm guessing it has some kind of teeth that lock it in position and when i press it they do not jump or anything, screnn stays in place.
    only trouble i have had was getting the X ( close button ) in some windows programs but using my pinky seems to work its magic.

    Personally, I have this monitor as well... and have it as well as a regular car deck on top of each other in a double-DIN dash.

    So for PC i set the deck to AUX, and for CD or Radio play, just use the deck normally. Works pretty good

    Yea it works pretty good,

    Only problem I have is that since the audio deck is in the bottom DIN slot, the motorized monitor is in the top. Therefore, when the monitor flips out and up it blocks 2 of the air vents more than half way.

    Minor inconvenience, but still kind of annoying.

    Did you guys wire this up exactly how the manual states? I know some LCDs need regulated input, but it looks like this one doesn't?

    For alot of LCDs, people recommend wiring to the PSU. What did you all end up doing?
