    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is an affordable touch screen option. Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux recognize it. The components are very straight forward on the install with what goes where. I found a website that had pictures with the step by step.

    Cons: I had trouble from step one. The glass cracked from trying to install it. It was hard trying to fit the components into my asus netbook.

    Other: Best left for someone who is an expert at this type of stuff. I am not discouraging just had difficultly with the whole install process.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -Fairly cheap
    - Well packaged
    - Driver installation a breeze
    - Worked in the 900HA (With modifications, see "Other thoughts")
    - Fairly accurate
    - Glass, not plastic

    Cons: - For the 900HA, it's not plug n play (See "Other Thoughts")
    - Price may be a tad high
    - Makes the screen slightly more glarey
    - May break screen bezel if screws are overtightened.

    Other: Requires a bit of electrical knowledge to get working with the 900HA, but overall it works fine and ins't overly expensive, though seems like it could be cheaper.
    It was sandwiched between 2 thick pieces of foam and wrapped many times in packaging tape.

    Pros: -Works perfectly for eeepc 900 default xandros -DIY-Nice exercise for beginner hacker -Instructions for installation of hardware and soft is in the internet(see Other Thoughts) -Fast and accurate response -Customizable settings using the driver below -With some fiddling it fits the eeepc900 almost seemless -Great for efficient browsing -Awesome packaging! It looks really professionally packaged than my last one. Even the circuit is on antistatic plastic than bubble wrap on my last one.

    Cons: -No instruction given(Not really a con) -Too cheap for its potentials. -The TS is fragile like a thin glass. The touch screen is easily cracked. Cracked easily. Weak glass. Thin glass. Oh! and its fragile. -No small sample piece to show costumer how fragile it is

    Other: Can't find the one I followed for hardware installation but i did some drilling on the screw hole for the monitor brackets to raise it to protect my TS. I think its on forum.eeeuser.com too. No bulging or anything like that. Software installation works perfectly using http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:kiddshoptouchscreenunderxandros Perfect mod for the "tougher than tough book" eeepc 900.

    Pros: The screen came packaged very well apart from some of the protective plastic film peeling a little in the corners, the screen was in perfect condition.
    Mine came as one piece as well and included a cable that would fit in a USB port. With a little switching around, I was able to use that cable as the "USB in", connect the ribbon to the "Touch" cable, tape the touch screen to my 900A EEE PC (yes to the outside) and then connect the USB to one of my USB ports to give it a test run before I took anything apart. WOW Windows 7 picked it up right away and I was able to see the screen in action...

    Cons: ... except that Windows 7 was not doing a very good job mapping the touches. I couldn't find a way to calibrate the touch screen using the native Windows 7 driver, so I took meiansan's advice and downloaded the drivers here: http://home.eeti.com.tw/web20/eg/drivers.htm

    Other: Seriously if you're planning to build a car PC from a EEE PC, this is a good way to do it. Now I just need to find a way to mount the screens in my car and get them to work in direct sunlight... but that's a battle for another day!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: DX packaged it properly, unlike the other reviews I have seen that says they all arrived cracked. I bought 2, because I cracked the first one myself.
    Great, easy to install. I thought I have to solder, then found eeepc forum that says in the eee 900a, which does not have the webcam. Just plug it in into the webcam outlet. The webcam will appear in the bios, which was not there before. And enable it in the bios.

    Cons: Cracks easily. No instructions on which plug goes to the laptop webcam. I had to figure it out myself using a desktop.

    Other: If you have a eeepc or the other 9" netbook. This is a must have toy.

  • Installed on an eee 900

    posted by gregprice on 20:19:05 G4T 11/04/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap and functional, fit my eee 900 without mods. came with screen, one board, connector wires and CD. Two extra internal USB ports when finished with the install (one with an included cable, one without a cable - get your own.) Webcam still works after install. No soldering, just plug-and-go. CD had correct drivers, you just have to dig a bit to find them.

    Cons: Fiddley install, lots of small parts that my fat fingers had difficulty with. Slow response when moving the cursor with a stylus. No instructions, really had to dig around to find good information. Panel is FRAGILE. I chipped one corner just putting the front cover on, but the unit still works. Had to take both front covers off, and I popped the motherboard loose so I could wrap the extra USB cable around to the bottom so I could access it thru the RAM door.

    Other: I'd do it again, it's a nice addition to my eee pc. I'll do it to my next eee too.

  • Eee pc 900HA touch

    posted by rsOne on 15:27:16 G3T 30/03/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: All in one DIY kit. Easily navigate web pages and ebooks with by touch. Comes with extra internal usb slots for more mods. lots of info can be found on Google and specific forums. **mine came with the updated shipping packaging it was in a mother board box with lots of bubble wrap.... perfect

    Cons: The whole eee pc needs to be dissembled to install this. Touch will ony work when webcam is enabled. If you have a warranty it will be voided when you take the case apart.

    Other: if you ever want a touch computer here is a way to do it for reasonable price!!!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: comes with everything you need. The included USB hub even gives you an extra full female usb cable to allow you to hook up an internal bluetooth or a flash drive (if you could somehow make enough room). You will not lose the webcam function either.

    Cons: Hard to put in! No instructions included, but refer to the internet for help especially jkkmoblie. He has done this with a full video on eee pc disassembly and installation. Could not have done this without his help!
    Also when attempting to write on the screen, it isnt that quick to respond, so when writing fast your handwriting will look like a 2 year old's.

    Other: With this kit I now have an internal bluetooth and a touchscreen for my eee pc.

  • Touchpanel with USB-Hub

    posted by an85dy on 17:01:24 G1T 05/01/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: + no soldering required (in case everything works and you don't wanna use other cables or something)
    + integrated internal usb-hub
    + cables included (also extra usb-cable, external one)
    + driver cd
    + one card, not two (less space needed)

    Cons: - no manual (but internet will help)
    - kinda tricky getting all cables in eee pc without case bulging or something
    - danger of cracking the panel (in 900A it doesnt fit nice, screen case doesnt close on bottom)

    Other: ~ i like to see whats inside, so this was kind of exciting to do and luckily it works now...
    ~ i think, its a must-have, when someones going to mod an eee pc... but dunno if there are better-fitting ones out there...
