NTSC/PAL/SECAM/VGA all in one LCD...opinions?
I took a trip to Taiwan last week. While I was there, I found an LCD made by a Taiwanese company that takes NTSC/PAL RCA as well as VGA inputs. Once all the plastic casing is ripped off, I think it would make an excellent in-dash display. Here are the specs. Do you see anything that would make it undesirable? BTW, I'm using a 6.4" MobileTV LCD right now and I hate it.

Oh yea, I forgot to mention that it costs roughly $450.
Sounds great. My only beef is that I could not fit a 10.4" screen in my truck. If it was like 8" or smaller, I would buy it.
Which company makes them? Is there a website we can see them? Where can we buy them from? Do they ship abroad (out of Taiwan)?
Please tell us...!
The company is called Action Electronics. I emailed their US office and they said that this product won't be available in the US until May or June. I may just ask someone to buy it overseas and ship it to me.
Here's what the screen looks like.
