    Hey the image you posted

    It looks to me like the screen is upside down?? so the viewing angle is bad, which is a problem on LCDs as we all know, and it would look even better if the screen was the other way around when photographed??
    Can we see a pic with both screens powered up, same orientation same image, and say a shot looking straight down at the screens?? That would be a great comparo, looks great even in that shot you took though

    If I had an 8" display to donate right now, then I would. However, I would imagine that the 7" kit would work nicely on an 8" display, since it's not a huge jump in size...

    I've been following the thread from the start and I have to say this thread just beat out the "Check this ***" thread. I will be all over this upgrade!!

    Yeah the screen is upside down

    well the problem is the layout of my power supply and everything thats why I had to take it upside down, but I will see what I can do tonight. i'll try to hook up a 2nd panel and show the diffrence

    I have some images that I took of each screen, but i'm not that great with a camera and so it adjusts the light balance everytime I take a picture, thus each panel looks about the same brightness even though it's much brighter

    well thats what i'm hoping, because with the 2.6 mm samples, I got some 4.1mm samples as well, which they dont fit the 7" so hopefully they will fit the 8"

    I am going to contact armen from digitalww and see if he has any 8" panels yet.

    I would be willing to put it into any panel that I can get, but it's hard to do if I dont actually have the panel.

    is the SP7 a panasonic or hitachi panel?
