    Default TOUCHSCREEN Recommendations Pleaaase :-D

    Hi All,

    At the moment I am using a IPaq 3630 PPC and/or a Fujitsu 3500 to control NR etc - and it works well BUT both use the tip of the nail OR pen for control.

    Now - is anyone using a True Touch Panel which will require no use of a pen but if the CCF is designed with the FINGER in mind :-) can be used with my grubby finger ?

    I guess there are two experiences that I'm after :

    1) A Touch Panel "Slimline" monitor connected via cable to the HTPC in the cupboard

    2) Anything which has wireless and requires no cable - like the viewsonic

    What do you use, what size ? how much and where could I get one :-D

    Thanks All

    Rocky

    On eBay you can get very nice 8" touch screen monitors from the Far East. My father has one without touch screen, and it's very cheap and at the same time very good. I think somebody on the forum bought one of those with touch screen a while ago.

    Default Thanks for the REPLY :-D

    Hmmm,

    Far East - all i get is Lilliput Touch Screens on ebay - but i have read that they are poor quality. Any chance of any makes/models ?

    I will post my finding with links on this thread - I'll try to get prices too !!

    Maybe there will be some people out there who will be interested

    ANYBODY else out there with a TOUCH SCREEEN (I shouted that - lets see if that will get to the NR/Girder Forum Members!)

    Thanks for the reply Mastiff - Appreciated

    Hi Mastiff thanks mate for those links - starting to build up some options now -

    Expensive! That's what I think. But then I'm cheap... Seriuosly, they look good, but to me they're not worth that price.

    I have just purchased a lilliput 8inch touchscreen and works fine with my grubby fingers. There was some cable problems straight out the box but a scalpel knife to the rear panel fixed that. Its very clear and easy to use and cheap. Much better WAF than my ipaq i use as well.

    Default Lilliput Interest

    Hi Ryan,

    I'm interested in exactly how you are using the Lilliput!

    1) Is it up on a wall ?
    2) Is it hooked up beside you ? so you can touch the screen to switch functions.
    3) Do you pick it up ? If so are the cables annoying ?

    Anything you researched out there that is Wireless ?

    Thanks

    sorry to take so long to reply but have been away. I am using 800 by 600 resolution with ccfs that suit but now that the latest 1024 by 768 ccf is out i will try that. apparently you can use that reslution on the lilliput but i will try it tomorrow. i find 800 by 600 is perfect especially for my fat fingers.

    and RS , i havent wall mounted mine as yet but i feel that is the only way to go or some tupe of solid mounting. the stand supplied does not allow you enough resistance all the time. My cables were dicky from the start and thats why i had to modify so i think the less moving around of the screen the better. Very easy to wall mount has a sturdy bracket on back. I will ve putting one in my speedboat soon too when i have worked out the computer part of it. I have read that they are not great in bright conditions although i havent had trouble./ Now off to try ou 1024 by 768. i
