    Well It's been 90-95 Degrees here in PA. I've had my 6.4" TFT working great even during the hottest time of day. For more info on my display, visit my website.

    I'm in Chicago's suburbs and it gets hot! I don't know about a TFT, but my 40x4 is alright. One time it was blue when I got back to my car it was so hot! So I just detatched it and brought it inside and put it next to the air conditioning vent. I also dropped it on cement and it works fine still!
