    Would This Screen be suitable in a car situation?

    I found it in the Play station site of the far eastern hardware site that ships to the UK, and US. Note prices quoted in $US and GBP.

      Cheers.

      I just the price was rather good for a complete unit, even though it would be composite/SVideo rather than VGA

        It is a good screen, but don't buy it from Lik-Sang (for several reasons) get it from DSCUSTOMS here on the board. Check the for sale section.

            Had a look at DSCUSTOMS offering, NTSC only, what I need is a PAL system, so the Lik-Sang option looks to be the only way to go unfortunatley.

              We don't have to use PAL in the car just because we are in Europe. My TFT accepts both PAL/NTSC formats (has a switch) and I chose to use NTSC since the desktop image fills up the screen better (less black border).
              Even if you install a TV tuner card in your carPC to pick up the UK's PAL broadcasts, you can still force the computer's TV output to NTSC.

                good point.
                Never thought of that.

                I wonder if any of the commen composite LCDs have an Svideo mini-din input, like like that available on the Via Epia/Eden?

                Picture through an Svideo connection is so much better than through a standard composite connection on my TV at home. Doesn't make a difference when watching movies, but the desktop is a lot crisper.
