    Question Looking for an LCD <$100

    Hey all,

    I'm building an MP3 box for my girlfriend's car, and due to financial constraints she has $300 to spend on the whole shebang. I've allotted $100 to getting an LCD, something around 5"-7", doesn't necessarily need an enclosure as I can build one myself. I was planning on running either MediaEngine or MediaCar on the rig, which is the reason I wanted an LCD. Problem is, I'm having trouble sorting the massive piles of junk on the internet from the actual useful info, so if anyone has suggestions as to where I could get such an LCD, that'd be great! VGA or Composite, either works for me, I realize that the quality on composite wouldn't be that great, but it should be tolerable...

    Thanks!

    All those retailers ship *only* to the US, and I'm in Canada, unfortunately.

    Anybody know of any Canadian retailers, or sellers willing to ship to Canada?

    I startet with a PSone Display. Its available in Europe for approx 50Euros and could be connected via Composit (TVOut) or VGA (but not with all GFX Cards).

    Search for PSone here within the LCD section.

    You can modify the PSOne screen to use a VGA Cable.

    Check this thread on how to do it.

    Making the RGB signal stronger?

    I haven't tried it before but according to the thread it works.

    Also check this website as well.

    I've seen the PSOne screens, and the enclosure they are in is kind of an awkward, round shape. Anybody worked with one of those before? Can you take it apart, and put it into a custom enclosure? Is the screen assembly itself round, or square? How big is the screen (inches)?
