  • Wide-Screen 8" and 10.2" monitors?

    I've noticed that most screens available 8"-10", anywhere, for carPC enthusiasts are only in 4:3 aspect ratio. Would people be interested in wide-screen 10.2" and 8" VGA Touch screen monitors instead? or does everyone prefer to use 4:3 for some reason?

    I have a 10.2" wide TS that's transflective - It's MUCH better than my Xenarc and great size for my dash. Motorcity hooked me up

      wow, 10.2" widescreen AND a transflective screen. How much did that run you??

        It was about 700, but well worth it for the size and the transflective

        I don't really think it's worth it to buy a screen unless it is transflective, but that's me.

            Motorcity had some stuff in the classifieds (might still), but I think he got kicked off this board or something. Check out http://motorcitytech.com/ I don't think they really have anything on there yet, but you can contact him/them about a TS monitor. He's been really good about answering all my questions and creating a custom power cord to connect to a molex power connector on my computer. Good service.

            Oh, yes, I got it new, open frame (no plastic frame, just the LCD and the controllers and all the circuit boards, very compact).
