    How good is the quality? Im asuming it uses RCA cables for input. Do you use a video card with RCA outs?

    Thanks

    its actually a mono headphone jack type input thing..but you can get the RCA-to-mono-headphone-thing adapter at radioshack for a buck and a half.
    i think the picture is excellent. at 640x480 you can almost read the playlist ;)
    ..it looks tremendously cool with some graphic plugins tho.

    The quaity is actually decent? I just have to buy a RCA to 1/8mm (headphone size) plug adapter? DO the plugins look that good (Geiss) Can you play games? How easy is windows to control in that enviornment? How much better is the LCD from eio.com, if it is better at all? Im really interested in saving $150 and buying that LCD

    Thanks

    I have a little experience with 4" monitors from several different manufacturers, and guess what?? It seems like they all use the exact same monitor with variances in the board that controls them. The EIO monitor, as far as picture quality, is just as good. Also, PartsExpress sells one for 139, and order project box 320-712, I've been told the 4" LCD fit in there nicely. Jupiter, if you run win98 at 640x480 with really large icons and text, it looks sweet, and Giess absolutely rocks on it. Also, doubling up winamp's size and playlist font size works nicely as well, or use the Ao plugin. complete the box with the X10 remote, and you're rollin!!! Oh yeah...anyone know how to have giess automatically start everytime winamp starts up?
