I think that it would be a poor choice for a PC display. VGA is the way to go.
i was looking to get a new deck. thinking of one of these....
but what do you guys think? i wouldnt mind a touchscreen either but i think it would get dirty. basically need something to watch dvds, videos, ipod hookup to it ect. the more options the better.

why do you say that?
I'll second that. When I just started thinking about putting a computer in my car I bought a $1200 flip out DVD player with touch screen thinking it'll be a good investment if I got a carputer in the future. Well 6 months later I paid $450 for a Xenarc VGA screen. So it was a big waste of money because the picture sucked, plus the touchscreen won't work with the computer.
