    The closest model that I can currently offer is as follows:

    Dave.

    HI there I am MD of GNR group companies of which Ronin is one. We are in
    deeply embarrassing situation. Typically 90 -99% of our business is
    making for Global Brands.

    This product <EZV17> has been sold exclusively to a big German OEM for their TV
    business and is available only from ****** in UK. This is confidential
    information as I am sure you will understand but I have to share it
    with you.

    I do not know how to apologise enough but we have lost out at the
    expense of OEM customer. I deeply apologise

    Very Best Regards,

    Dave Stevinson

    That's interesting because I've been looking at the Relisys in the last few days.

    I have a PDF datasheet for it if anyone should want it, it's about 340k. If the response time really is 16ms then I think this could be very good value for money. With Component-in and 16ms refresh this could a great console gaming monitor as well as a PC monitor and TV.

    Slightly worryingly, the Relisys sites have absolutely no information on this screen. Does anyone have a manual (so I can examine the back panel) or seen one in action?

    Got the pdf and a couple of shots. The spec has changed slightly though, the inputs are going to be on the tuner board part of the unit (i.e. the vertical bit as opposed to the horizontal bit they're already on).

    The photos will be on our site as soon as the web designer gets round to it.

    I'll get to see one myself in a fortnight which I think is when the main bulk of stock will be here to send out. Will post comments as soon as....

    Thanks Liam. I wonder why the inputs are being moved. Hopefully it's only an internal pcb redesign rather than an exercise to reduce cost at the expense of quality. Tuners often output a lot of heat (and sometimes interference if the shielding is poor) but hopefully, this won't affect the component and PC-vga inputs.

    Hi Liam,

    Do you know what the "digital interface" is mentioned in the first post? Would it be DVI?
