    It's been a while ... screens, power supplies new coming out?

    It has been almost a couple of years now with the same stuff. LCD's had a little flurry a while back but most had issues. Prices are still crazy for some carputer parts.

    Where is a 300w power supply everyone was working on like Opus?

    I know Opus shevled it but the innovation on the part of manufacturers seems to be a bit slow of late. Nothing to get excited about

    Anyone heard anything coming down the pipe ?

    Nothing.
    I still remember that a guy came here from Opus (we found out that) and start talking about 300W DC-DC PSU. And that was like 2 yrs ago, but nothing coming out.

    And come DragonBTV also talking about 300W PSU, but nothing out yet.

    And Jeff was talking about putting 2 DS-ATX together in master-slave mode to produce 400W PSU, but nothing yet.

    Until then, my home-built Sproggy is the most powerfull one

    the store is working on getting Sunlight Readable displays. Thats a big plus! No more glare, no more washed out screen. You can actually see this thing clear as day in direct sunlight. its like a dream come true.

    Market demand is pretty soft for a high wattage power supply over 200 watts. Smaller and more power efficient systems is the way things are going.

    That would be awesome, on the other hand, what am I going to do with my old screen? I hate to waste something, but hey, thats how it goes, I guess.

    I know you could think of plenty of cool home projects for a touchscreen LCD. Like a picture frame computer (wall or desktop), home automation control station, bathroom tv/computer, home security system, etc. Rest assured your old screen won't lie idle...
