    i got halfway through doing the PSone VGA mod, but gave up when i decided composite was OK after all....I think the PSone screen is great value (AUS$95 for 5" screen)

    I have the digitalww composite screen, and i don't think it's worth the money for vga, considering how much it will cost to get one over here. Big text looks crystal clear on it (im running media engine and i can read everything perfectly) and anything smaller than that, well, i haven't tried, but why would u want to go smaller? you don't have much time to look at the screen normally so you want big things u can see quickly...

    i am prepared to spend $120AU. Not a cent more. So if you see them for that muchthen please do let me know asap. Im sick of 24x2... i need vis.

    I think PSONE is going to be cheapest, however if you know of anything cheaper then let us know.. =]

    I have found a place that I can get the screens from here in Melbourne. Trouble is they charge alot more than D Smith or Harvey Norman ever did. AUD$200, however they are the official SONY units.
