Hi,

can anyone recommend a LCD distributor for something like a 7" to 8"
LCD to be used outdoor (sunlight readable).

thanks,
Philippe

I really need something smaller 7 to 8 inch, and cheaper as well ($275
is really expensive for a bare panel).

Actually, $275 is a really good deal for panel that size. These things are not cheap when you only buy one of them. There are a lot of them out there, particularly from Asia, but you have to be careful in what you get. They have varying specifications and hence a wide range in quality.

True - and I have a personal lust for a Pixel Qi screen - but 10" is too big for a lot of applications. I have heard rumors that they are working on a 7" screen but haven’t seen it yet.

Philippe, have you thought about liberating a screen from an older, dead device? Assuming it died for reasons other than screen failure, of course…

you said "sunlight readable", which other panel qualifies?

The PixelQi panel that runs on the Beagle?
