Great job, thanks for taking the time to put it together :clap:

The Vewlix page on the wiki is pretty sparse - you should add this info :)

you could also add that the jp Vewlix L is using a GTT build Screen, while it does use a Samsung Panel , it is not a regular consumer grade Samsung Monitor like the China Units use.

there might also be a late 2012 jp Vewlix L/VS Version that uses a NEC Monitor , but i have never seen one.

you can also recognize a chinese Vewlix by its glossy screen.

Just a quick note - the coin entry on my C is chromed plastic so not chrome in the traditional chrome-plated metal sense. I expect that the F then is the same?

Unless I have a knock-off silvery plastic coin entry :think:

I note the 'hidden' height adjuster feet on the C and F, although more notable is the completely different lower support frame. Is it just bigger boxed metal, or does it use the existing lower frame with just a cowling on?

If the former, that may explain the weight difference for the lightweight L's - any other reasons for the weight difference?

There are wedges fixed to the legs on the F and C models into which the feet are screwed rather than screwing through the legs themselves:

Re the weight difference, I guess it's accumulation of additional and/or different components such as those wedges, an extra MDF shelf, heavier monitor (?), PSU etc. I'm not sure specifically though.

Interestingly my cab doesn't have a single 120mm fan and chrome grill at the bottom section of the rear, but instead has 2 smaller approx 60mm Panasonic fans at the top section where the meshed holes would usually be...

Does anyone know if this is an older revision or the reason for the variation? :think:

i do remember the smaler fan mounted directly to the Vewlix from my first F, don`t remember if it had the 120mm fan thou.

from what i can tell right now, there are Vewlix C with atleast 3 different Monitors.

Does anyone have an early F Manual by any Chance ? Would also love to get my hands on the Manual for the VS-Vewlix.

I have a scan of my Vewlix AMI L manual but it is too big to attach here in a MP (I am assuming it is a size problem but it has failed 3 times). I also have official (non-scan) Vewlix C and Vewlix DIA manuals from a vendor in Japan. Anyone have a way for me to get them here?

My LCD Panel is a TLK-320Y

Hoping to add a Vewlix C from Jinxz soon.
