    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    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

    OtherThoughts:

    I cracked my first one in half. Trying to remove it after using double sided tape to fasten it, I put it upside down. This second one is installed flawlessly! and Fasten with kapton tape. Any tape would also work. Hardware install instruction is on the internet, some pics here http://myeeepc900photos.blogspot.com/ I installed the software following this wiki to the letter http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:kiddshoptouchscreenunderxandros > it says kiddshop but it also work on this touchscreen.

    Bottomline:

    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.
