Hi Tim - NZ7C - the screen has excellent resolution. Much easier to read
because in addition to better resolution it is MUCH larger print. Contrast
is good but a little more brightness would be welcome. Still very pleased -
better than I thought it would be.

Subject: Orion reviews - thanks Jim & Tom
Tom, as well as Jim Reid -
Thanks guys. Good insight from Jim on being patient and goo seat of the
pants feedback re. the ProII. Tom, I'm curious - does the Prion screen seem
to have better or worse resolution than the ProII screen? It's hard to tell
from the pictures on the website.
