    Question Looking for Display 4x40 or LCD?

    I just finished building my mp3car players. In the past I had tried wiring my own 4x40 LCD, wow that was a mess. In response I bought a LCD off of Zip, later to find out it was a bad LCD, and Zip didn't have anymore (nothing against Zip, his products are still the best). I want to get something worth while, but don't really have the cash. I'm running a P166MMX with onboard I believe 2mb video. I was wondering if there was a LCD that would work just for winamp that is pre-wired ot that accepts VGA input. I want to keep under $100 for TFT LCD and under $50 for 4x40. If anyone have an idea or suggestion please reply. Kinda lost on where to purchase one, and what to get.

    Thanks

    Try Parts Express, http://www.partsexpress.com

    You can get a 4" LCD for $99. I have the same thing and it looks and works great. I have never had any problems with it at all. Good luck.

    thats one problem, it's 100, and with a p166mmx, it's not really possible to paly VCD or divx on it, so what is the point. I guess I just need talked into buying a 4" rather then 4x40 when all I play on running is mp3s

    Not true at all.... My laptop, a P166mmx toshiba plays divx/vcd's just fine. Mind you that this is my development pc.

    TFT LCD would be the best but if you can afford it I would go with the 5" Parts Express for an extra $100 you get 3 times the number of pixels it makes it easier to read fonts where as the 4" was impossible not matter what.
