    Question

    Arby,
    Can you give me the link to the Ebay Auction for the 8.4 Sharp LCD's? That sounds like just the size I want!

    OK I found the site.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...item=561118564

    It doesn't look 3 inches thick to me and it is VGA but you would have to buy the $200 controller for it. But that's a much better price than the $800 everyone else wants!

    My computer has a built in lcd controller that will work with screens from 640x480 to 1600x1200

    I just need a screen that will fit in my tiny dash

    Talking

    Infinatek,
    Thanks for the info.
    I will deffinitely do some searching to see if I can find a controller for that LCD before I bid on it. I did notice that the controler at view-tek.com only went up to 640-480 but this LCD is 800-600 capable. I'll let you know what I do find.
    Also do you know if this LCD is backlit? I cant tell.....

    Arby you lucked out with that motherboard. The same guy is also selling some 6 & 9 inch LCD's Maybe they will work....

    Its a dual scan LCD not a TFT.. So motion would be very blurred on it and the viewing angle restricted.. Ever seen an older laptop where everything goes crazy looking if you are a few degrees off in viewing angle? Same thing...

    Just checked out those screens on Ebay..
    Is there a reason why some americans think they are the only country using Ebay? Makes getting items to Canada kinda hard...I'd love to have one but apparently he won't ship here..
