Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know whether I need a standard panel or a PD LCD Panel?
You will need a PD LCD Panel if you plan on the following: running your LCD Display more than 6 hours a day as a standard panel is only designed to operate 4-8 hours per day; or if you require your LCD Display to be viewable outdoors you will definitely need a PD panel which is up to 4 times brighter than a standard LCD panel.

What is the difference between a MetroSpec H Series and a MetroSpec X Series LCD Display?
Both models are highly reliable. The difference is the X-series, is equipped with a door, which makes on site servicing possible.

H-series does not have a door, making it cheaper by reducing your capital expenditure. But that is not to say the H-series is not serviceable. It most certainly is, it just requires a different service and maintenance philosophy. By having a rotatable pool of spares, displays can be quickly swapped out and sent to a service technician for repair.
