    Are you looking for VGA or TV signal... you can get the vga ones for cheaper it seems, but you'd need a special card or converter.

    The NTSC TV signal ones are going for about $200 on eBay

    Well, unfortunately www.aeicomp.com does not sell its 5" VGA screen anymore (true 80x600res!) but the next best thing is to go to www.mars-cam.com and get price gouged for a 5" VGA monitor that not that hot. Or you can get price gouged another way by going to www.aeicomp.com and get their 6.8" VGA monitor! Yeah! ;-)

    good luck man.

    VGA is DEFINITELY better. Arby got that backwards though, the VGA are generally more expensive, because they have higher resolution than composite type LCDs. You only need a computer with standard VGA for a VGA LCD, you'll need a special card with composite video out (TV) for the cheaper LCDs. I suggest VGA if you want a quality screen. Not to mention it'll be easier to add touch screen to a VGA LCD if you so desire.
    I used VGA in my installation, you can see it here: http://24.7.157.64/home.html

    Well, the reason I said that is that 12" laptop screens have been going on eBay for less than $50, while all the 5-6" monitors are closing at over $200.

    Anyone know where to get a good price on a 6-8.4" vga lcd? I just need the screen, I already have a controller.

    Hmm, ebay has a big batch (40) 8.4" sharp VGA lcd's going for $39. Too bad the frame around it adds another 3" so it won't fit in my dash

    Get em while you can!
