      Yeah they are cool BUT the pcb is too big and the controls are a pain in the *** to adjust. I guess you get what you pay for.

          It's a module, hence, DO IT YOURSELF, which means you get the bare lcd screen with all the essentials but no case or llittle special knobs to adjust the contrast/color/brightness etc... big deal.

                  I have had one for about a month now. The picture quality is good for DVD, TV, etc. It is difficult to see much when you have a Windows type screen on, as I am sure you could all guess.....

                  But I think it is sufficent quality for what I am doing, and for most anybody else, unless you want to type a letter or work on a spreadsheet in the car while you drive.

                  I have also run my GPS software on it and it is sufficent.

                  If you haven't bought one yet, there is a guy on eBay that had about 900 of them when I bought mine. I paid $140 I think. And since then I think I have seen an eBay store with the screen for $114.

                  I can't remember the guys name, he didn't leave me feedback so I can't even find it there. But do a search for 5.6" LCD and you should find them.

                  But I definately recommend the screens viewability.

                    Oh, wait I ment to ask a question about this screen.

                    Does anybody know how to adjust the picture size? If I hook it up to a TV or VCR the picture fills the whole screen. When I run it off the RCA out of the computer's video card it is a little smaller than the full screen and kinda shifted to the left. It is not loosing much of the viewable area, but when there is only 5.6" I kinda what to get every little bit out.

                    Is it a video driver issue?
                    Is it a MB adjustment?

                    FYI, my motherboard is the FV-25 and I am using the RCA out.

                      Adam F here on the forum had been at the partsexpress showroom he saw the 5.6 LCD module and he thought the picture was washy and fuzzy, and too bright.

                          wow...that was a while ago...they had several screens hooked up to the same video source, and the bare bones 5.6 was DEFINETLY not as clear and vivid as the rest of them. And $160 for it is NOT a good deal...you can find a 5.6" lcd with casing, speakers, all the plugs and power supply for under $100...check www.etronics.com .......plus their customer service is AWFULL!!!!! To say the least, I am NEVER GOING TO SHOP THERE AGAIN.....I had a defective LCD mount, went to take it back and get a new one, they said I abused it (I did not, it simply broke into 2 peices, not trace of stress, clean brake) then the antenna broke into 2 peices when I raised it one day, the connectors on the TV tuner box were very flimsy, so I decided to return it, they charged me 15% restocking fee for a defective product, their website says 10%, I could go on and on but I wont....
