Why bother? For $200 - $300 you can get one of those generic (mag?) 14.1" desktop displays (ebay and sometimes retail). Rip it apart and you've got everything you need.
I've been having some real trouble sourcing a single DiCON LCD1024E analog XGA controller for my Samsung LT141X7-124 14.1" flat panel. None of the distributors want to sell me a single controller card and cable unless I spend $500 or more.
I was wondering:
1. Does anyone know any sources for small quantities of this controller card?
2. Does anyone have an LCD1024E they want to sell?
3. Is anyone else in need of this card and want to be in on a small group buy?
Thanks for hearing me out.
dicon controllers cost $150 no matter if its 1024E or 1280IE (at least for me they were)...u should get couple of them, say 5, and sell them off here. I bet many ppl would be interested in if you'd post more info about them. my 2c

I might be interested, Out of those two cards i'd go for the 1280, but i'm also looking at some others.
Okay, I'll request a quote for the LCD1280E and if it's the same price we could go with that.
count me in! I have been looking all over the place for one to go with my 10 inch screen.
So we have three people interested...do you guys know if your LCD is supported? I'd hate see anyone disappointed after they bought the controller card. The list of tested LCDs begins on page 14 of that PDF I linked to.
Could someone please explain the optional USB Port? What would it be used for?
