use a laptop with the screen that belongs to it. you will pay more for the lvds controller not to mention the agony of making it functional. The other option is buy a vga lcd screen
Ok. I want to put a laptop screen and wanted your suggestions. I was looking at ebay and came up with two options. Now before I link, I also read that it is needed to use a LVDS controller but I do not fully understand how exactly does it works. I was wonderin if someone could explain to me....
Here's the link to the LVDS:
Judging by it, it needs an inverter for the power, right?
Now for the screens... Two options..
What do you guys think? What would be the best approach and "easiest" way to use either one of the lcd's??
Your wanting to build something from components that is readily available as a single unit to save a few bucks, its not worth it. I am running a laptop panel, but only becuase the LCD size I wanted is not available any other application. This is what im running.
I advise you to pay the extra few dollars and get a complete unit with guarantees and warranty.
