    What brands?

    Hello all. I am new to the forum. I am building a new center console for my truck. I am wanting to put in a 7 inch lcd screen in it. I was wondering what brands are the best. I will be buying it off of ebay. I was looking at something like this
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...719636688&rd=1

    I will be using it with my playstation 2. I figure that I dont need anything too expensive right now. I can always upgrade when I get more involved with it. It wont be much work to modify the console if i do decide to upgrade. Thanks for the help.

    Well, it's cheap... Doesn't look like it accepts VGA input though, meaning you'll be stuck with composite (RCA) input. I have a feeling quality won't be too great on it.

    Also, 1034 x 234 pixles? I'm guessing that's native resolution of the LCD, and with that vertical resolution, you won't be getting much done.

    I would suggest checking out the 7" Touchscreen Lilliputs here at the MP3car store, Zip-Lock is great to buy from. I bought my lilliput from him, great service, etc.

    Over all,that LCD doesn't look like it's too high quality, and I would go with something a little more well known and used by carputer guys. That's just my opinion, though

    Thanks guys, your probably right, I probably wouldnt be happy with that one. And if I am going to get a touch screen some day, I might as well get it now. What, if anything will i need to get with it, I mean, will i be able to just install it and plug in my playstation and go, or what? thanks for the response.

    if its just your ps2 right now you really wouldn't need anything extra. perhaps an inverter to power your ps2 and you would be set. I'm going to take metriod prime with me in the car this weekend to the iowa/iowa state game.
    don't worry i know i usually don't make much sense
