    What ppl have to say about desktop screens

    Hey everyone
    Plz let me know why i should NOT put a desktop screen in my car.
    Mounting/wiring it has been figured out so that is not a issue.

    Things i have to concider, i live in canada so i will have to go thru winter.
    I would have the longest extended warranty

    Thanks

    check out how meny NITS the screen output, tried a 14 inch in my van it had about 160 i think. daytime could not see it unless it was pointed strate to me,with sunny day totaly unviewable. a night it would light up the whole inside of my van so i needed to turn off when driving.also check out the viewing angle, dont be cheep buy a screen disigned for outdoor use.

    sorry didnt mean to call you cheep, just dont want you to speed time/money on something that probably you will not enjoy.
