"Transflective" LCD panel with res touch+controler for $101+$36 S+H
So I was doing some research for my headrest/2nd zone control and I'm thinking of buying these Samsung panels:
Here: ebay listing. Seller apparently in Hong Kong.
Nothing in the datasheet says anything about transflective, or sunlight viewing. But that's not essential for my application, I think. However, the pictures, specially the one side by side with the cell phone, is impressive. It's a TN screen, but Samsung have great screens.
However, I want those for my headrests/2nd zone. Maybe I could use this housing ($4.99 mp3car), buy a compatible shroud from Lilliput (hopefully) and easily cut my OEM Headrests and be done with it.
For less than $250 for two quality touch vga screens? Maybe their viewing angles are even better than my chep Xenarc in the FX and I could use more. That and a capacitive touch...hummm.
Ideally I would to have something like this, HDMI/DVI capable, accepting higher resolution as input (important, because I plan to use a big screen up front, higher than the std 1024x768, the max for cheap controllers). My MB drivers probably won't do dual monitor with two different resolutions, so if the secondary screen can down convert it, better. But at $150+SH each...
What do you guys think?
