    What's your dream screen?

    Hi folks,

    I am considering sourcing some screens from an overseas mfr. I was wondering what your dream screen would be?

    Are we happy with the endless crop of 7" 16:9 screens, or do you long for a larger widescreen (like a 9"), or maybe an 8.4" 4:3 800X600 screen, or larger?

    Or maybe even a 6.3" 4:3 with a native resolution of 1024x768.

    do you want a stand-alone, overhead, or in-dash unit?

    Let me kow what you think! I would like to provide something unique to the marketplace.

    thanks,

    Mike

    I like the way you are thinking, only I havent found any LCD controller cards that supply component video in. This one may be too good to be true. But I will include that in my search.

    thanks for your response!

    A touch screen LCD screen that covers the front Wind Shield in a 11520x7200 pixel resolution. With three front mounted cameras so I can see where I'm driving, and at stop lights a small window will pop up that says "Pause"

    Im happy with the current size of screens available.

    What would be great is something that's actually put together with quality in mind, like normal computer parts are. Ive never had as many problems with any computer hardware as ive had with "3" lcd screens. Its like playing the lotto to get a good screen.
