    Welcome to the forums!

    First thing you should learn is a search button (top - right corner), it is your best friend.

    From your requirements it sounds like you need a 7" VGA LCD (xenarc) but it is about twice your budget at $400. You will have to add some $ or look into a composite LCD monitor.

    Brightness - has to be at least 250 nits to be daylight viewable.

    Text - what text are you planning on reading? There are several different ways to go around this issue:

    1. Get a VGA LCD
    2. Increase font size in windows (composite LCD)
    3. Use an interface like MediaEngine
    4. If you really need to read a lot - wait till you get home

    Do a search on these LCDs and decide for yourself:

    7 TM-701L
    7 TM-7002S
    7 GA700YYV or DS700YYV or 700TSV

    Additional search topics:

    VGA LCD
    Composite LCD
    Media Engine

    This should last you a couple of days and give you a lot of ideas.

I have searched the forum, but i thought id repost to have any new hardware or new people add there opinion.
