Has anyone used or heard about the quality of the "Lilliput Monitors" ?

I've got two of their monitors, their original tft (not recommended) and their newer ips both 7". The newer one has a nice screen, it comes with false colors, focus peaking, histogram and some other features I can't remember. Has an hdmi pass through. I bought them from their California office. They're nice folks and interested in figuring out what the film/video market needs. I've never used a smallhd or tvlogic or scientific research (i think that's the name.) so I can't compare.

They've confirmed it's a 6-bit display. Lilliput Screen seems a little more contrasty than I want it to be. Haven't used it with the bmcc yet only with gh3 and 5diii, still waiting on my sdi to hdmi passthrough. When that gets here I'll update you on how they are together. They also make a 7" monitor with sdi. It's about twice the price of the hdmi version.

Thanks Woody,

I'm very interested in how they work out for you when you test them. I've been looking at there SDI version and also looking at the "Manhattan" monitors as well.
