Touchpanel with USB-Hub – 9" USB Touch Screen Digitizer DIY Mod Kit for Asus Eee PC 900 UMPC Laptops Reviews

posted by an85dy on 01/05/2009 Certified Owner

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

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:
~ handle with care and its better to search topics in several forums to get the solution to avoid cracking... or at least to have the chance... no garantee it wont crack...
~ my panel cable had to be on the left side (other than the most i saw)
Bottomline:
~ 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...
