    Talking My New LCD.

    I finally decided to save some cash and buy an LCD. I am getting this one from Earth... http://www.earthlcd.com/SK2005R.HTM
    I will just have to mod some of my truck to get it to fit. Shouldn't be too hard. I will be running a PII 450 with a dvd drive.
    I will post some pics of my setup once i get everything done.

    Quote from EarthLCD.com: "Can I use this LCD outside?

    Answer:
    Not yet (o.k. maybe in the shade or car with tinted glass) but we are looking into backlight enhancement. This is available as an analog monitor as the EarthVue-12R."

    I would email them and ask them more questions regarding the use of this particular LCD model in your vehicle. It has only Contrast Ratio 150:1 and Brightness 150 nits-- which is my opinion is not enought for daytime use.
    But, these are very nice screens. They go for $250 on ebay.com

    Maestro MP3 player: MIS K7T Pro-2A, AMD 1.2GHz, RAM 640MB, 80G HD; Screen: Datalux 10.4 VGA; Head Unit: Kenwood Z727; RF control ON/OFF/RESET

    I won the same NEC screen off an EBay auction a few weeks ago and got my screen in the mail last week. It's sweet! It looks really crisp and has much better resolution that a dinky tv screen. DVDs look great on it! I would highley recommend them as carputer screens, of course, they are bigger than most screens, so fitting them into a car might be a bit of a challenge...
