  • 8.75" x 5.3" - Best display with these max dimensions?

    For an upcoming project, I play to spend a maximum of $300, preferring about $200 if possible.
    And my max dimensions are 8.75" x 5.3".
    It will be a custom fab install where I tear apart my SUV's center dash for it.
    What is a good touch screen in that price range?

    It will be for a PC running Android.

    I just need it to have:
    • HDMI input
    • auto-power on
    • RCA Video input for rear camera
    • auto brightness, or the ability to control brightness by external input.

    This is the best thing I could come up with on my own, but I'm new to this and not totally sure what to look for:
    • High Brightness Lilliput 869GL-80NP/C/T-HB 8" Touch Screen LCD Monitor DVI HDMI

    I'm guessing that panel is about 7.5" x 4.4" once removed from the housing. I found they usually add 6mm per side X and 5mm per side Y to the active screen dimensions. (viewable area)

      Yeah, the max dimensions include any sort of open bezel or "regular bezel".

      After tearing up dash, I get:

      W = 8.75" / 222.3mm
      H = 5.3 / 135mm

      I used a screen size calculator for a 16:9 type and got these numbers:

      10" Diagonal screen is 8.72 x 4.9
      9" Diagonal screen is 7.84 x 4.41

      So I'm thinking a 10" screen is out. But a 9" open bezel might fit.

        One other thing to remember is the brightness decreases with larger panel sizes. Here are the sizes (25.4mm per inch) I found when I was looking for an open frame screen in the 16:9-10 aspect:
