4.3" DX screen hacking information

Postby Life of Brian » Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:58 pm

Just ordered two of these 4.3" screens for a soon-to-be-worked-on project involving two N64's. I will be posting pics and a guide as soon as they come in. I'm posting the link now rather than later so I don't lose it - it's hard to find stuff on DX!

I don't get why so many people buy from DX when the same screens can be found on ebay for a much cheaper price.
On the other hand I'm excited for you to finally tackle the N64!
Good luck :)

you forget to account for shipping. ebay auctions usually tack of large shipping costs to compensate for a seemingly low price. plus, dealextreme is a known reputable seller. you kinda gamble on ebay.

Ebay is only a nonreputable seller if you don't know how to use it. People blame ebay for their problems when its their fault they didnt check location, shipping price, policies, decription, and feedback.

Yes most of the time you can get it on Ebay for a little bit cheaper.

Either way it will take 4-6 weeks to get it. LOL

"ebay" isnt a seller. you start to gamble on on auction site when you buy from a chinese seller. believe me, ive been screwed over a few too many times.

I mentioned location as something users need to check before buying.

I like that these are 4:3 (and I'm not talking about 4.3"). I've been having trouble finding anything larger than 3.5" that isn't 16:9 on eBay.

The stock pics show a 16:9 screen but the pics in the car seem to show a 4:3 screen . Weird.
