    yo
    by look at the lcd and read its description, i would say, this LCD will connect to your pc via RCA or S-Comp. connector. this mean, you need an graphic card that has tvout

    Cool

    The cool thing is that it is cheaper than partsexpress on the 4 inch and almost a better deal on the 5.6 since it is slightly larger and in a more managable case (no speakers but most people are cutting those out anyways).

    just to let u guys know.. i bought the 5.6" from microstru.com and what can i say...it's awesome. It is DC for sure bc i just run off the cig ligher adapter. It's just standard 12V. The input is just RCA and it has controls for brightness, color and contrast. I highly recommend this screen over the partsexpress 5" which i also owned in the past. For the $10 difference you get 0.6" bigger =) can't beat that price.
