ATTENTION! THIS POST IS FROM 2010 SO IT MAY NOT REFLECT TODAYS REALITIES AND CHOICES.
As far as I know, the group buy from CoolLCD is still ongoing.
Since there's been about a post a week asking this and the original group buy thread is really long, here's the step by step on how to get the Cinema5D price and order a Lilliput 669GL monitor from CoolLCD.
On the question of which monitor to buy, most people have found that the 669GL suits DSLRs best. If you don't know which one to buy, stick with the 669GL that everyone else has been using and liking. This also shouldn't be taken as an endorsement of the CoolLCD/Lilliput over the Ikan or Marshal or SmallHD or any monitor for that matter. The 669GL is a cheap solution without the bells and whistles of some other monitors and without the resolution of the SmallHD. Look around and figure out which monitor is right for you. If you think it's the Lilliput 669GL, then here's how to order one:
UPDATE AUGUST 1, 2010: There is a newer monitor available now called the 669HB that is similar, but has a higher brightness thus the HB name. $210 shipped to the US, and just like the GL, you can get it by following the directions below:
1. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
"Hi, I'd like to order a 669GL monitor with the Cinema5D group buy price please."
2. Read the email that "Hong" sends you.
-If you're in the US, the price should be $188 including shipping. (UPDATE 8/2010 669HB is $210)
-You'll need to pay them using PayPal and give them your shipping address.
-Don't worry about the "declare value", CoolLCD will fill that in.
3. Send an email letting them know you paid over PayPal.
4. "PLS don't worry"
5. You'll get a UPS tracking number, and after a few days you'll have a monitor.
It's that simple.
You'll need to order an HDMI - miniHDMI cable if you don't already have one. http://www.monoprice.com/ is a good place to start. Choose one that fits your personal needs and how you plan to use the monitor. Then buy an extra one for backup as miniHDMI plugs tend to break easily. Some people prefer to buy HDMI-HDMI cable and then use a HDMI-miniHDMI adapter since the miniHDMI adaptors are cheap and easy to replace, but I personally believe that the adapter is more likely to break than just a cable because it sticks out further. So you can either buy a bunch of adapters and replace them frequently, or buy a more expensive cable and replace it less frequently...your choice.
CoolLCD also offers a battery but the jury is still out on whether it is better to buy that one or one of the many eBay batteries that cost less. There are other threads that go into more detail about the pros and cons of the batteries: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12814&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a
Some people have had complaints about the eBay battery, while others have had no problem with it so a little research is still warranted there. UPDATE 8/2010: The main complaint with the Ebay battery was that it didn't take a charge. The reason is that you have to turn the switch on the battery to the ON position while charging or it won't charge. This should have been in the manual, but since there isn't a manual it was causing some confusion.
Update 8/2011 There is another power option for the Lilliput monitor made by GaryP's MG1Concepts. http://www.mg1concepts.com It uses the same Canon camera batteries to power the monitor. The nice thing here is that you only need to carry one type of battery instead of a camera battery and a monitor battery. I haven't had the opportunity to try this out myself, but it looks like a slick solution to power needs on the Lilliputs.
